Connor, the American Pitbull mix
Connor was emaciated and weak when he came into Maricopa Animal Care and Control in November 2018 as a stray. Some of the shelter’s staff members spotted him in his kennel and brought him into their office where he could get some TLC while the veterinary staff sought the right kind of treatment. Pleas were made to rescue groups to help find an outlet for this gentle soul. Thankfully, the shelter sought medical help from HEAL, who approved his treatment for Valley Fever. Once he started treatment on Fluconazole, Connor quickly turned a corner and was on his way to recovery. The Flores family met Connor at the shelter and fell in love with this 3-year—old American pit bull mix. He was adopted in December and the family continues his treatment for Valley Fever but says he’s doing great and goes by the name of Goat Man. He is now a cherished member of the family. Thank you, HEAL, for your compassion and help for our medically challenged but otherwise loving homeless animals.
