Giving Snickers A Chance For Her Golden Years

Update posted by Rugaz Rescue Inc On Nov 21, 2017

We did it folks! We are half way there to making Snickers a happy, healthy senior who will be ready to find her forever home!

We still need your help, and in a big way! We just got her post-4 week Thyroid bloodwork and she is completely regulated and has lost enough weight, and you know what that means? It's surgery time!

We now have a date to remove her mass, on December 6th. Please help us raise the funds for Snicker's surgery so she may be able to find her forever family for Christmas!

Every single dollar makes a difference to Snickers being able to go home for the holidays!

P.s. We've lost 12lbs!!!

Miss Snickers is slowly losing weight towards her surgery goal, slow and steady. She has started her Hypothyroid regulation treatment and will be on it continuing for a month, and then we will re-check levels. She's not a fan of her daily medicated shampoo soaks, but her skin is improving. Our dream goal is that she will have lost enough weight and her Thyroid levels will be regulated enough that she will then be a candidate for surgery.

It's going to be a long couple of weeks, but positive thoughts and a determined Medical/Foster team will make a reality of a happy ever after for her!

Miss Snickers is currently at Animal Hospital of Regency Park in New Port Richey, FL 7741 Congress Street New Port Richey, FL 34653 (727)848-6247 and we have devastating news.

The mass that was found on Miss Snickers is Mast Cell Cancer. Miss Snickers has cancer :( However there may be light at the end of the tunnel for this beautiful girl. So far there has only been one mass found on her, which means if we can do physical therapy and get Snickers to lose a good amount of weight and become a little more healthy she may be a candidate for tumor removal. It is a race against time to save Miss Snickers.

She is now on multiple drugs to help with her Mast Cell along with her Thyroid, and Urinary drugs she is already taking. She has a severe chronic yeast infection she is taking daily medication, and daily medicated baths to soothe her skin and during these soaks she is getting Hydro-Therapy to help with her weight loss.

Miss Snickers was so loved by her Mother, and this is simply a case of a Senior Mother who didn't know the condition her beloved pet was in due to her own condition being grave. We need to come together to help Miss Snickers race against the clock to become healthy. We owe this chance of life not only to Miss Snickers but to her Mother who is also currently in assisted living care due to her condition.

Sadly, due to Snickers condition, weight and where the tumor is surgery although possible (and we will make this happen! We have to, we can do this with your help!) is costly. We have had to up her Fund to $1500 for her pre-surgical, surgery and post-surgical care. This is also including her Blood-Curves to monitor her thyroid levels pre-during and post surgery, and also including the medications pre-post surgery as well.

Miss Snickers has already been through so much. Losing her mom, countless tests on her blood and urine. Ultrasounds, daily medications and baths. She deserves to have this cancer taken away and become a maintained happy healthy girl who may be able to find a very forever home of her own one day, but we need your help to get here there!

There are much needed items on her Wish List like her Probiotics, Her Arthritis Chews, Her Shampoo/Ear Medications she uses daily. ANYTHING you can sponsor means the world!
