Zeus was an 8-month-old puppy brought to the Dubuque Humane Society by a good Samaritan. He was emaciated, covered in feces and had malformed feet due to neglect. Though mistreated and scared, he accepted a petting hand and wagged his tail when given affection. It didn't take long for Zeus to put on weight and recover his health. A few weeks later, he was placed up for adoption. Less than 24 hours after that, he had a new home with a loving family. Thanks to the many supporters of our work, Zeus, and other animals like him, will never again have to know what it is like to be hungry, scared or alone.
