Compassion with Fashion 2019
The 21st annual Compassion with Fashion was on March 31, 2019 at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort and Spa. Over 1,000 of the valley’s animal-lovers came together to raise a record-breaking $1.3 million, saving the lives of more than 1,200 pets just like Little Foot, who made a surprise appearance during the luncheon! Little Foot, at the time just 6 weeks old, was brought to AHS by a Good Samaritan who found him with rubber bands tied around his ankles. His feet were horribly swollen, making it very difficult to walk, and nearly cutting off his circulation.
His initial treatment in AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™ included daily laser therapy and warm compress massages to promote blood flow and improve circulation in his paws. Little Foot then spent time recovering in an AHS Foster Hero‘s home where he made many friends and made a full recovery!
An adoption drawing event was held for Little Foot on Sunday, March 3 in which interested adopters were invited to enter their name to adopt Little Foot, as well as meet other pets in need of a furever home. Janet was selected to adopt Little Foot and was thrilled to become his new mom!
The story of Little Foot, now known as Charlie, may have had a different ending if not for the life-saving gifts made during Compassion with Fashion 2019.
Thank you to those who contributed to this wonderful success.
