CARE of South Bend, IN - Hambone and Sweet Pea’s Story

Community Involvement General  

Hammie is a rescue dog from the South Bend Animal Care and Control

This is the tale of two homeless dogs; Hambone (pictured) and Sweet Pea.

Sweet as could be but with no one to love, these two angels arrived at South Bend Animal Care & Control sad, scared and unfortunately, very sick.

Hambone (a.k.a. Hammy) arrived weeks before Sweet Pea. Soon after intake, Hammy was diagnosed with an advanced stage of heartworm. On top of his heartworm, he had the worrisome signs of something potentially worse going on such as neurological trouble.

Sweet Pea arrived at the shelter with a prolapsed uterus, a life threatening condition that required immediate veterinary care.

Veterinary care of this nature doesn't come cheap, that’s where CARE of South Bend comes in.  Recognizing how special these two dogs were, CARE committed to covering the cost of their care.

Sweet pea survived her emergency surgery and her spay to later go on to develop Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). Hammy survived his heartworm treatment, his neuter and his eye ulcer to later go on to develop a life threatening respiratory infection.

It was a tough road for these 2 adorable dogs, but they took it all in stride with their tails still wagging.  After receiving the care they needed both dogs went on to make a complete recovery and to be adopted into loving families.

Stories like this remind all of us at Boughter Law how important CARE's work is for the South Bend community, and we are proud to have been able to contribute financially to their cause through our "Share4Care" campaign.

Staying safe on the roads during the sometimes treacherous winter months really comes down to being prepared for what could happen. It’s important to at least be aware of the worst case scenarios so, if and when they do happen,...

Strange Halloween Law Suits

The Halloween season has a way of bringing out a new round of personal injury cases – ones with an entirely different, somewhat-spooky nature. With kids and adults alike dressed in costumes, pretending to be masked vigilantes or mystical characters, it can be very difficult to know what’s real and what isn’t. It can also make it more difficult to determine whether or not a situation is safe. We’d like to encourage you to stay safe this Halloween as you’re out trick-or-treating or at a...
