"dead" animals...

Just wondering, has anyone ever saved an animal from death?

Such as adopted an animal at a shelter before it was too late.

Or like in my signature, what I did for Hopeful.

Well,you are heroic young man:) good going!!
Like was said,most people here are heroes in my eyes,I have not"saved"anyone other than a baby-squirrel and a mourning-dove.But today,with shelters full of unwanted pets,just by taking care of and loving animals,you are saving lives.

No, I've never adopted an animal from a shelter, but yes, I've saved them from death in other situations.

It's very rewarding.:)

YES!!! One of my closest pets was saved from the animal shelter. He's gone now:( :( :( I think. One day he just ran away and never came back.:( I miss him.

Buy an animal and you have a bought pet.

Rescue or save an animal and they spend the rest of their life Thanking you.

I very much doubt anyone here has spent 10K on pet surgery. Personally, I doubt I would be able, depending on circumstances.

What kind of surgery costs 10K?

$10000 is an awful lot!

I've both taken dogs from kill shelters, and saved dogs & cats from certain death in a number of situations. And squirrels, snapping turtles, & various wildlife too. :)
(Snapping turtles often wander onto the country roads around here and routinely get squished. Last spring my "remove from middle of the road" turtle count was 5.)

If my dog was that severly damaged, I think it would be better and way less painful for the dog if it's life was ended then.:(
