Simba came into our lives in February 2021. I reached out to Toronto Humane Society to foster him when he was coming to the shelter.

Simba was diagnosed with IVDD and slip disc, because of this he did not have much control over his lower body. He was restricted to a wheelchair and was in diapers.

Helping Simba on his road to recovery was an experience filled with love, patience, and challenges. The support provided by Toronto Humane Society and their Rehab team during this period was a blessing. Christina from Rehab is a fairy godmother in Simba’s life. Constant checkups, hydrotherapy, light therapy, massages and lots of love helped Simba eventually graduate from the wheelchair.

Today, after a good haircut, a few more pounds, and his never die attitude, Simba loves to frolic around. He loves to play with his friends at the dog park and chase them around. He loves all the attention he can get and has become a popular figure in the neighbourhood.

In June 2021, we could not think to part from Simba and officially adopted him. We constantly work with him to help strengthen his lower body and enjoy all the love and cuddles we get in return. We are grateful to all the support provided from Toronto Humane Society – the foster team, training team, rehab team, and vets all played a very crucial role in helping Simba get back on his feet.
