I received a frantic e-mail from a shelter walker at Irving Animal Services that was looking for someone to rescue a dachshund that was found dragging himself along the highway and could not use his back legs. Bettye and Jim of Oak Hill Animal Rescue came to this baby's rescue and named him Arlo. After having him evaluating and discovering that he had paralysis in his back side, they decided to get him a wheelchair to make his life easier. Our group "Gardere Cares About Animals" took up a collection at our law office and not only raised enough funds to buy Arlo the wheelchair--but also to cover the cost of his heartworm treatment (as he was also found to be heartworm positive). Arlo still lives at Oak Hill and is thriving. Betty and Jim are true angels to the service of animals far and near!
