Meet Hopper! This giant hunk of canine love spent too long in a shelter and he was slated for euthanization. The wonderful shelter staff LOVED this gentle giant. They asked us to take him and we did! Hopper is a Cano Corso, a very sweet and gentle 5 year old Italian Mastiff. Some jerk cropped his ears to make him look tough, but Hopper is Minnie Mouse on the inside. At the shelter, they noticed Hopper was peeing funny. They did an x-ray and saw nothing. They put him on 10 days on antibiotics. Still nothing. Finally, they neutered him, thinking maybe his prostate was pressing on his bladder. Well, it's been over 1 month and Hopper is still drip-drip peeing. We want to do an ultrasound, a urine culture and bloodwork to figure out what is going on. It is not cheap and our vet have quoted $752 (tax inlc). Please help us help this gentle and deserving guy <3
We couldn't do the work we do without you :)
HELP US HELP THEM
Working to get abandoned and sick dogs back on their feet and into loving homes is frequently heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking, and often expensive. All of our rescues are vetted upon entering the rescue, and all of them enter our spay and neuter program. Per our vet's recommendations, all of our dogs are we vaccinated, de-wormed, and treated for ecto-parasites and kennel cough. More serious conditions receive additional vet care. We also like to get second opinions, often from specialists, for invasive or specialized procedures.
Our rescue seeks, within our budget, the maximum vet care for our dogs. We're grateful to receive a discounted rate for many treatments and procedures thanks to our relationships with our vets. We often solicit public funds for expensive vet care that may over-stretch what little income the rescue has. Our funds are modest and not limitless, but we do not euthanize animals because we cannot afford their treatment. We just would never do this. We love them. Nor do we permit a dog to languish in pain or suffering because his/her treatment is too expensive. We would never do this either. We mobilize. We fundraise. Often, we reach into our own pockets to get things done.
We are never going to change the world with our small rescue efforts, but we hope and pray that with the animals we do rescue that we change their lives for the better forever.
