Until Pame Parks from Two Step Sanctuary entered the picture! She agreed to take Orson into her program and give him a safe, quiet place to live out his remaining days.
But she did not have room for him just then, and he needed a place to stay until she did. He had run out the clock at the shelter, which has to make room for the next huge wave of abandoned dogs that deluges them daily.
That is where Smiling Dog Farms got involved! Cindi, an indefatigable volunteer at BARC, asked if we could foster Orson until Pam could take him.
We started feeding him a high protein, high fat diet to build up his body weight. And as you can see in the photo above, we began treating his mange, which included weekly sulphur baths!
