Neko - WestieMed Grant Recipient November 2015


I would like to tell a story about a Westie named Neko. Neko was adopted from the Fulton County Animal Shelter. I’m not sure what led me to this particular shelter over another one but it was meant to be.

As well as you all know you take a chance adopting because you don’t know the history. Some cannot handle the confident personality of the Westies. I believe he could have been neglected and ran away or was surrendered. But with love and patience, I was determined to change his future.

Neko is now in a loving forever home and is happy and friendly. We walk on the trail daily but due to a left dislocated shoulder, he has been on crate rest.

Thanks to WestieMed he will be able to walk, run, and play again soon! He loves to shake hands with his left paw and the surgery will also allow him to do that again as well.

I am soo thankful to have found this charity as I was getting down because I could not bring myself to go on the trail without him. With your funding, he is scheduled for surgery. I could not have done this without your help. I am forever grateful as Neko will be on his road to recovery and running again very soon.

Thank you for all that you do. When our Westies are down, a huge part of us is down too! Not only do you help the pets, but you also help the owners’ spirits as well.

Yours Truly,
Neko and Crystal

Good afternoon.

Neko is doing good.

He went to GVR rebab in Marietta, GA for a while but I cannot afford to keep going.

However, the underwater treadmill really helped after surgery.
