FloridaWild, with the assistance of volunteers, has aided in the rescue and rehabilitation of over 6,000 animals. Thanks to the dedication of the hospital’s veterinarians and staff, lives have been saved and families rewarded with a perfect companion.
FloridaWild’s first rescue was Sandy. Her family called Dr. Holder to come to their home to euthanize her. But when Dr. Holder arrived, she was greeted by a fluffy buoyant healthy dog. That was Sandy. Sandy was surrendered to Dr. Holder and went off smiling all the way. She became the hospital’s mascot arriving in the morning with Dr. Holder and heading home at night with her and her two dogs, Annie and Poe. Until illness took her life, Sandy lived healthy and happy for three years with the Holder Family.
