Six years ago this week one of our residents, Greta a 12 year old German short hair pointer, got her front leg got stuck in mud and had a spiral break in three places. Most animals would lose their leg. Greta only had one front leg. The first lost from a blow to the shoulder by a foot or a car and left outside to die at age 6…. We used a fantastic surgeon who created a rod with screws and wire and attached it to the bone. We then used water therapy to have her relearn to walk. She is 18 years old and since then has fetched over a thousand tennis balls and still does. The power of will.
New Year and much to do…. Currently OMS has three residents and one new Smith in overnight vet care. The need for us to finish Purdy’s Perch has never been more needed. Carina’s run slated to begin as soon as the snow is gone.
One of our newer residents, a beautiful yet feral girl named Freckles, is resting comfortably at the vet’s, being treated for a very bad upper respiratory infection. ‘Tis the season…..we can’t wait for Purdy’s Perch to be completed, so sick animals can remain onsite while they are recuperating.

I have very exciting news. As you know, one of mine and Monica’s greatest passions has been to bring an end to animal homelessness. In 2000 we began a mission to focus on saving “One” animal at a time. Over this last decade we have saved over a thousand animals.
Friends this Holiday season think about sponsoring an animal at “One More Smith” and we invite you and your family to come visit our residents. They would love to meet you.
Three of our resident goats. Thelma and Louise were rescued from a goat dairy farm that had gone out of business. Jax and Hewie were saved from another defunct farm in North Carolina. Little Buddy was born to another rescued goat, but had special medical conditions that did not permit him to continue living on the farm.
Silli is a dog that must remain at One More Smith. Please consider sponsoring Silli today.
