Everyone probably has one particular animal (or several) who touched them in a special way. Domino is one such animal. A black and white spotted pup, alone in the country, Domino was hit by a car and severely injured on October 16, 2009. The Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office called LCHS, Inc. after being unable to locate his owner. LCHS, Inc. took Domino in and secured emergency care for him. Unfortunately his injuries were so severe, and his prognosis was so poor that the kindest thing was to euthanize him. Domino lives on though, in the hearts of those he touched in those brief hours we knew him, and through the establishment of LCHS’s Domino Fund. This fund honors Domino’s brave and gentle spirit, and allows donors to designate their gifts to be used for emergency care of ownerless pets.
