Many people have things to say about Becker Animal Hospital's great doctors, service and boarding, and I'm certainly one of them. But I've never seen anything about Dr. Michael Becker's work with the animal rescue community, so I just want to let people know that he helps rescue groups. My husband and I have been involved in rescue groups since we lived through Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Thousands of animals were lost or abandoned, and even after six years, there are thousands of animals in "temporary" foster homes that were never intended to be permanent. During the current recession, animal shelters have been filled to bursting as people are no longer able to care with animals, and we're still working on rescues, to help keep animals off "death row." One of these Katrina fosters came to us pregnant with nine puppies, and we've had a long road trying to adopt them out. Dr. Becker heard about it, and donated full series of vaccinations, worming and spay/neutering for the last four pups, so that they would be off-the-shelf adoption ready. Thanks to Dr. Becker, aside from one pup that died early on, this whole family has gone to good homes! Bless him!
