Aid for puppies still needed

By By Chandler Myers
Two puppies that are currently being cared for by the staff of K-9 Kleaners, located at 110 W. Ridgeley St., are getting healthier every day, but are still in need of medical treatment, which they might not receive if the grooming business does not receive donations.
Lee Veterinary Clinic is treating the puppies named Bert and Ernie for parasites, skin infections and other diseases.
Kathryn Wheeler, owner of K-9 Kleaners, said the dogs are in need of a little more medical attention after going through a series of medications.
Although the dogs may never be full size they will make a full recovery.
Ernie the larger of the two is slowly growing and expected to be closer to full size than Bert.
Wheeler said once the dogs are healthy they will be placed in a good home.
She added that the home that was lined up has fallen through, so applications will be taken.
While the dogs stay at K-9 Kleaners, the bills are sure to rack up, so Wheeler and her staff are welcoming any donations to help the dogs or expenses.
Until the dogs are adopted they will wander their home at K-9 Kleaners like two peas in a pod, according to Wheeler.
