Candice is a happy 7-year old Black & Tan Miniature Pinscher, with cropped ears and docked tail. Candice weighs 9 lbs, is spayed and her diabetes is regulated on 5 units of insulin in the morning and 2 units in the evening. Full health records are available. She's friendly and non-aggressive; good with cats and other dogs. Children is unknown, but don't think they would be a problem. Candice is good with strangers and loves to meet people. Candice came into our life because her owners did not feel they could handle the burden and cost of her diabetes. Though she is a joy and we do care for her, we already have a houseful and believe that Candice would be better off with an older person or couple. She is content sitting in your lap or nestled next to you. Candice is crate-trained but loves to join us in bed at night. If you can help Candice find her forever home, contact Frankie Pepper in Shelby, NC at

Butchie soon after diagnosis

Butchie - mid-May, 2003

Date: Mon, 12 May 2003 
Subject: Butchie needs a home

Butchie is a 3 year old male who was diagnosed with diabetes approximately 4 months ago.  He currently lives at Catnip and Carrots Veterinary Hospital in New Hyde Park, NY, therefore he needs a home which he can call his own. 

He first came to the clinic as a "feral cat" because Dr. Saver works with many rescues in spaying and neutering feral cats.  He was one of them, but they noticed he was friendly and that he would always finish all of his food and water at least 3 times a day.  They put him in a cage in the tame cat population (feral cats stay in box traps until re-released) and did blood work on him because his coat did not seem as shiny as it should be and he drank too much water.  The blood work showed that he had diabetes. 

He takes 5 units of PZI insulin once a day and eats DM canned by Purina. He loves to eat and talk. I have attached a photo of Butchie, but since this picture was taken he has filled out a bit more.

If you are interested in giving Butchie the loving home he needs please contact or Thank you.

Keesha is a diabetic cat in Larchmont, New York, currently residing at the Village Animal Hospital, who desperately needs a home of her own with someone to care for her.  She was diagnosed with diabetes on or about May 16, 2003, and her owner, who has small children and cannot look after her, asked that she be euthanized.  Her veterinarian does not want to do that and instead the staff at Village Animal Hospital is trying to place Keesha.  Keesha is a spayed female, born in 1990.  She's a beautiful white lady with yellow eyes and is an indoor cat.  The contact at the clinic is Sandy (914-833-3600) who is willing to foster Keesha until she can be placed. If you can help, please contact Sandy or E-mail Muffin for more information.
(a photo will be up shortly)
