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.
My name is Mickey! I was found roaming the streets of Covington deaf and blind. My owners were found but had medically neglected me for three years, so the rescue found me a hospice home to spend my final years in getting the medical care I need. X-rays show a BB bullet in my chest along with emphysema. I need a nebulizer and two inhalers daily. My meds cost $150 per month.
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)
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!
