Gracie said goodbye today

Gracie loved to go on hikes with her favorite volunteers, whether it was meandering through our dog trails or on a hike in the mountains. She loved to play, chasing a ball and jumping through the air playing catch. Gracie will be remembered for her spirit of adventure.

Gracie earned her angel wings today as she passed over the Rainbow Bridge. She survived her surgery Thursday evening but remained in intensive care. Today however, she took a turn for the worse. Even though the surgery was successful in removing a foreign object that had punctured her bowel, she could no longer fight the massive infection that had spread throughout her body. Some of Gracie’s favorite people were with her when she passed away late this afternoon.

Our hearts are broken as we mourn her passing. Gracie came to Pets Alive from a shelter in Georgia when she was just a year old. She quickly captured the hearts of staff and volunteers, who would often take her to different local hiking areas in the summer and in the winter. She particularly loved playing in the snow – the cold didn’t bother her in the least!

Thank your for being here for Gracie. Your donations and support enabled us to give her a fighting chance. We are so very grateful for all you have done to help Gracie. She will be dearly missed by so many.

Truly grateful,
Becky Tegze
Executive Director
