Meet our medical fosters! A medical foster means these guys need extra special love and care. We love rescuing dogs that require medical attention, but we need your help in order to continue to do so.
I am in “fospice” care which means my foster mom will keep me until I cross the rainbow bridge. I was found living outside and chained to a dog house at 17-years-old. I had a testicular tumor removed and now the plan is to keep me comfortable and spoiled until my time comes! The link will send you to my Amazon wish list.
I was saved from euthanasia due to medical and behavioral concerns. Since I’ve been in rescue, which has been over a year now, I have had 3 eye surgeries and will need a fourth. I also had bilateral knee surgery at MedVet. My knees had been dislocated for who knows how long to the point my ligaments were torn.
We still need help paying off my outstanding balance ($4,500)
Hola! Chico is my name and I was an owner surrender at 9-years-old. Prior to rescue, I had NEVER been to
the vet. At my first vet appointment ever, I learned that I have a Grade 3 heart murmur and a mild case of hydrocephalus, which means I have fluid and pressure on my brain causing me mild neurological symptoms (lethargy, wobbling, eyes go to the side at times). I am not in any pain and it does not affect my quality of life. All I need is an over-the-counter med to help relieve the fluid and pressure.
At only 1-year-old, I have Blastomycosis which is a fungal infection that, if left untreated, can be fatal. I had to literally fight for my life after the infection spread through my lungs, limbs, eyes, and brain. $16,000 in vet bills later, I can almost say I beat Blasto! The fungus did not take my life, but the disease left me completely blind.
I am "Lucky" to be alive. I was hit by a car and left for dead on the side of the road. I am paralyzed from the waist down. In danger of euthanasia, my foster mom said I was worth every bladder expression and diaper change. I am always in need of puppy pads!
