Recipients of Giving
During these difficult times, LEADSRQ is continuing our mission of supporting the behavioral and medical needs of animals in our community.
Cece’s young life has been filled with too many twists and turns, until now. Originally, Cece was in a neighboring county shelter as a stray for 1 1/2 years. She was adopted but not long afterward her owner surrendered her to a local shelter due to losing his home. After spending a year there, she found herself looking for a new place to live and Satchel’s Last Resort stepped up and committed to Cece. LEADSRQ contacted
ACE Pet Resort/Vintage Paws to set up boarding for Cece. We knew that Cece needed time to decompress and to have the experience of havIng direct time with consistent handlers twice daily going on walks, car rides, trips to local parks and pool time. After 42 days a couple saw her on Facebook and knew they had to meet Cece. They instantly fell in love and it was mutual for Cece. LEADSRQ set Cece up for a successful transition by giving her two in home training sessions with Iris Eastman.
We are happy to say that things are going well and Cece is settling into her forever home. This is what can happen when three nonprofits come together to save a life.

Sweet, young Oreo found himself at a county shelter with a strange growth on his head. His skull appeared almost cone shaped and would seem to fluctuate from week to week in size. Veterinarians could only guess what the growth meant and worried about tampering it with biopsies as it may only exacerbate the problem. LEADSRQ was very happy to offer funding a CT contrast scan with our friends at Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota. After a full day of testing, we were thrilled to learn of Oreo’s diagnosis: idiopathic calvarial hyperostosis - a rare, benign x-linked disorder that only affects the skull. Oreo’s prognosis is good and his future looks even better because he was recently adopted and has a wonderful, new Mom!! Congratulations Oreo and happy life to you and your new family!

Congratulations to Eva and her foster-now-forever Mom, Loxy! After two plus years in a shelter, Eva will begin the next chapter of her young life in a loving home. LEADSRQ is thrilled to offer this young pup and her Mom three in-home training sessions as they start their new lives together. We believe training a new shelter dog is the best way to set them up for success, and we couldn’t be happier for Eva and her new Mom!

Dusty, pictured on the left, was recently adopted from the Humane Society at Lakewood Ranch. It wasn’t an easy start for this 2-3 yr. old guy. He needed a bit of time to learn how to trust humans and to express himself appropriately. Before he was adopted, LEADSRQ paid to have Dusty board and trained with Iris Eastman.
We are happy to say it’s exactly what Dusty needed. By the third week Dusty turned the corner! We are also sponsoring 3 at-home training visits by Iris so that the transition into his forever can be seamless.

We've been busy at LEADSRQ these past few months! These happy pups were all recipients of sponsored training by LEADSRQ. As always, we believe in setting dogs up for success with training so the dogs know how to behave and what is expected of them. Plus, they enjoy it! We wouldn't have it any other way.
Stormi is a young kitty that was taken in by a friend after the owner passed away. He was taken to the vet for a check up and to have a growth inspected. The vet removed the growth that did not heal and needed further testing. After a visit to Blue Pearl, and 9 tissue sample biopsies, it was found that Stormi had a fungal infection.
LEADSRQ is happy to say that with the correct diagnosis and meds that Stormi is doing well. Stormi’s new mom shared with us that she is grateful for LEADSRQ’s assistance in getting to the bottom of the problem. This will give them more time together. We are “purrfectly” excited for Stormi’s new life, however long it might be.
