New Family Members

These are two of our newest additions to the Edwards family. This is Salt and Pepper. They are Silkies.

Tuffy's cherry eye

This is Tuffy. When he came to live with us he had a cherry eye. As a result, Tuffy lost the vision in his eye.  After working with our vet, Dr. Dale Rice, we decided that removal of the eye would be the best option for Tuffy.

Volunteer Tim is comforting Tuffy before surgery.

Tuffy came through the surgery like a champ. He is making a speedy recovery.
