Black Lab Mix- Female- 3 Years old
Hyacinth is such a sweetheart. Just by looking at her you would never know the pain this dog went through. Hyacinth came to the shelter as a stray, very skinny and her skin was in bad shape. What caught the shelter’s attention was her teeth were shaved down. Hyacinth had scars all over her face and some on her body. She was being used as a bait dog. As bad as that sounds, she was still willing to give everyone at the shelter love as soon as she met them.
Hyacinth will make a great family dog. She is good with kids and adults. Due to her past life, living with other dogs will not be possible. She loves toys, such as her Giggle ball, and she absolutely loves to eat. Hyacinth will need adopters who will spend time with her, and show her what it means to be a house dog. If your interested in adopting or fostering Hyacinth contact the shelter. She deserves the chance to know what a home feels like.

Mya was found as a stray in the summer of 2014, and brought to Dogs & Cats Forever No-Kill Shelter in Fort Pierce, FL. She had mange and was put on several medications by a veterinarian, but sadly, she had an allergic reaction to her medications,and developed an autoimmune response to her meds. She has been to specialists in Stuart, West Palm Beach, and Gainesville, at the University of Florida. She is slowly getting better but has run up more than $5,000.00 in vet bills and medication costs. Her vets say that it could take more than a year for her to recover fully. Mya is only a year old and has a wonderful personality despite being in and out of clinics and given medicine almost nonstop.
Mya needs veterinary care for many months to come, and while Dogs & Cats Forever is currently responsible for her care, we are a private animal shelter which receives no financial assistance from local government, and we need help to pay her bills. Please help Mya get better so she can one day find a forever home.
