A Note from Tam – January 2022

This past year we lost four of our beloved pets in just a short 8 months. Losing so many in such a short time frame has impacted our family greatly – the void they have left has been huge.

While many of us know the loss of losing our own family pets, at Great Plains we often end up taking in pets who have sadly lost their owner, pets like Sweet Libby.

Libby was brought to Great Plains SPCA just before New Year after her owner had sadly passed away. Having lived the past few years in a home full of love to end up at a shelter has been devastating for Libby. Her first couple of days were especially hard, she was incredibly stressed with constant pacing and crying in her kennel. Fortunately our wonderful Medical and Behavior team got to work quickly to create a plan to help Libby adjust with medicine and extra care time out of her kennel which has definitely helped. This past week she has been my lovely office guest at the shelter.

Seeing dogs like Libby after their owner passes is incredibly sad. For me, having a plan to make sure that should anything happen to me and my family, my pets will be taken care of is key. At Great Plains planning for what will happen to your pets is something we have tried to make easier for people. Our Pet Agreement creates ease of mind for you and your furry family member. We hope it helps others who wish to plan for their pet’s future.

While Libby is doing better, she is in desperate need to find a loving foster home or permanent home.

Please help us find Libby a new home to call her very own.
