Toby Needs Dental Work

October 06, 2017
Posted By:

This photo is of a little ten-year-old chihuahua mix named Toby. His owner just dropped him off at animal control because "his teeth were in bad shape." They had him most of his life.  Animal control's WAGS, a non-profit animal group who's goal is to help Waukegan animals, offered to pay for the dental if the owner wanted to keep Toby. They still didn't want him:(.

We came to pick up Mabel and heard Toby's story and took him right away. Thank you Jennifer B. for fostering him. 

We need to raise money for Toby's dental. If you can help Toby you can do so on our web site at www.aear.org. Thank you❤️
