Alana is a sweet older girl who can’t catch a break. She was found wandering as a stray on a blistering summer day. She was very weak by the time she was taken to the shelter where her owners never came to claim her. While she was there at the shelter, they discovered she needed multiple surgeries. She had two abdominal hernias, two large lumps (one on each side) and a mouthful of rotten teeth which required major extractions. Her total bill was $780 which we could use some help with. While she was healing from all that, her face started to swell up from another infected tooth. We quickly got her on antibiotics but now she requires another costly extraction: at least $300. Will you help us help her? Helping seniors is very costly and their adoption fee doesn’t come close to covering their medical expenses. We need help in order to continue doing what we love the most: helping these oldies get a second chance at happiness.
