With a mission of rescuing animals in imminent danger of euthanasia, one might think that we don’t see cases of abandonment, abuse and neglect; however, this could not be further from the truth and “Mixer” is an example of what selfless animals endure daily.
We knew that finding a home for Mixer could be a challenge but we were all committed to the process. Enlisting our dear friends, Scott Wynn and Sue Wilson on 94.9 WQMX, to broadcast his story was natural. After all, these two passionate people have played an important role in helping many cats and dogs find homes over the past years and they both actively participate in animal welfare. Scott and Sue not only agreed to speak on his behalf but they championed him for the next two weeks and kept his story alive on the airways. Scott’s mantra was, “As pet owners we look for the perfect pet but, on behalf of Mixer, we are looking for the perfect owner.”Mixer was brought in after an employee witnessed him being thrown from a car. Immediately, he rolled across the road and then got his bearings. Upon approach, it was apparent that he wasn’t only dazed from the assault he had just endured but something was very wrong with his sight. Without delay, he was taken to the clinic where it was determined that Mixer was blind and had experienced significant head trauma. Because there were multiple injuries to both eyes it appeared the trauma he suffered occurred sometime before being thrown from the car. To offer Mixer relief from extreme pain and swelling due to detached retinas and glaucoma, and because his eyes could not be repaired, both eyes had to be removed.
Then, after hearing Mixer’s story and inspired by his plight, the perfect owners walked through our doors. They visited him a couple of times then decided to make him a family member! We expressed our gratitude to the family for this gift to Mixer and they stated “we are the lucky ones!” And they mean it. We thank the Dippel family, Scott and Sue of WQMX, and Rubber City Radio.
We don’t know what the assailants were thinking as they did this unimaginable act and can only wonder what Mixer was thinking.

She's healthy and ready to play. Cara, a deaf Jack Russell Terrier-mix puppy, was rescued after she was found inside a box alongside a busy highway in Brimfield. She's now healthy and ready to enjoy some time with a new family.
One of a Kind Pets in Akron have put Cara up for adoption. An ideal home for the puppy would be to be surrounded with other well-behaved dogs.
Cara received treatment for an upper respiratory infection and a hairline fracture in one of her front legs.
The OKPR Adoption Center, located at 1929 West Market Street, is open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. To ask about Cara, or any of the other animals at OKPR, you can call 330-865-6200.

Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is introducing a new method to help pet owners find a lost or missing dog or cat by creating our new Missing Pet Network.
“If your dog is missing, a dog license tag attached to the collar of your pet is the best way of notifying you if someone finds your pet” Scalise stated.
You will be able to post a picture and information of when the pet was last seen on our website. All posts will remain on our site for 30 days.
If anyone finds a lost dog that is wearing a Summit County dog tag, they can visit Kristen’s Kanine Search to locate the owner.
Ohio law requires that you license your dog; a license tag attached to the dog’s collar proves ownership and is your pet’s ticket home. Dogs without tags can be impounded. 2012 dog licenses can be purchased beginning December 1 through January 31, 2012. Do the right things for your dog to keep him happy and safe.
