The Story of Skip
Whoever dumped Skip that day didn't want him to be found.
When Skip was just six weeks old, he was thrown away like an unwanted t-shirt, or a worn-out pair of pants.
He was dumped in a clothing bin, and left for dead. Can you imagine how terrifying that would have been for him?
All Skip had to keep him company were the damp and dustry clothes he was trapped in. We don't know how long he was in that bin for - but one day, a truck picked it up to transport it to another city.
Skip travelled a long and lonely way, tangled in towels and full of fear. When the truck finally stopped, Skip used every bit of strength left in his dehydrated body, to let out some anxious cries.
He was shivering from head to toe, his ribs were protruding out from underneath his itchy skin. Skip desperately needed the SPCA's help.
Skip was immediately rushed to the SPCA where he received the love and care he needed. But Skip's traumatic past left him unsure and anxious. Simple things like loud footsteps send him running and hiding in fear.
Thankfully, today Skip is a happy, bounding, healthy six-month old pup who spends his days with his family who protect and love him.
But, we wish we could tell you that Skip's story is unusual. The sad reality is that he's just one of many animals who are so cruelly abandoned every year. They're crying out for your help.
You're a crucial part of our team. Will you donate today and help us save lives? Without you, it simply wouldn't be possible.
We desperately need your help to be there for these animals when they need us most.
Thank you for spreading the warmth this winter.
