Saving The Senior 7.
Rugaz Rescue Inc were contacted by a family when they found themselves upon a very dire situation. A household of senior pups needed help, and they needed help now. Their mommy had gone into an after care program and her daughter was watching them while she recovered. Sadly, the daughter had also fallen ill and both were not going to be able to come back to care for their pets so the decision had to be made by the remaining family to seek help for these pups in a very limited time.
The amazing community helped them get in contract with Rugaz Rescue Inc, knowing about our Project Golden Years in hopes we would be able to help before the family had to surrender these pups to the shelter being out of time. With these 7 pups being geriatric, and some having masses and loss of sight, they were told by the shelter that they would certainly be euthanized on intake.
We couldn't stand by and not help this whole family, especially letting the family who is ill know that these babies will receive the care they need and find excellent forever homes and/or hospice homes!
Meet the Senior 7, and the reasons we are reaching out for help:
"Blair" and "Squeak"
This brother and sister are 6/7 year old Chinese Crested who are just the sweetest little pups ever. They are in DIRE need of dental surgery (Even though we think Miss Blairs tongue hanging out is amazing!) Both are suffering from severe ear infections and follicle infection due to their sky type. Mr Squeak also has 6 masses that were aspirated and need to be removed before they can start the search for their forever homes.
Total Fundraising Needed for Blair: $175 For Skin/Ear long-term Treatment. $200 for Dental Surgery = $375
Total Fundraising Needed for Squeak: $225 For Skin/Ear long-term Treatment and aspirations of all masses. $200 for Dental Surgery. $350 for Mas Removal and Biopsy Surgery = $775
Meet "Louie". This handsome smiley mug is an 8 year old pug who is grotesquely obese. He has been put on a very strict kcal diet to immediately and safely drop the weight to help him move. He has a severe ear infection so bad that he screams in pain when you even lift his ear flaps. So he has been placed on the proper pain and medical management to regain his hearing in both ears as it is extremely muffled from how impacted his ear canals were. Mr Louie is also in DIRE need of dental surgery as some of his teeth are only being held on by the gum disease and tarter.
Total Fundraising Needed for Squeak: $115 For Ear long-term Treatment. $200 for Dental Surgery. = $315
This amazing tiny little Lab gal (Yep, that's right! She's only 23lbs!) is approx 10 years old. Miss Tiffany has multiple mass/skin tags that all needed to be aspirated, and thankfully all are cosmetic and no need for removal. Miss Tiffany however, is in a DIRE need of a dental. Her poor mouth is extremely sore due to the dental build up.
Total Fundraising Needed for Tiffany: $100 For all mass aspirations and diagnostics. $200 for Dental Surgery. = $300
Miss Lily is a very special little old lady. She is approx 10 years old and 90% loss of sight. Don't you think for a moment that stop's her in any way. She loves to wonder around and small all the smells she can while the weather is fantastic. She, as this whole family does has a severe ear infection along with multiple masses that had to be aspirated. Luckily, none of her masses need to be removed and are simply cosmetic, but she does need dental surgery to improve her quality of life.
Total Fundraising Needed for Lily: $200 For Ear long-term Treatment and all mass aspirations and diagnostics. $200 for Dental Surgery. = $400
This adorable little Chihuahua mix Gal is approx 6 and pretty darn healthy, outside having a small cherry -eye on her left eye that needs to be surgically repaired.
Total Fundraising Needed for Ducky: Cherry Eye Repair - $250
This sweet 8 year old Chihuahua boy is also grotesquely over weight and having a very difficult time moving around. He is currently under-going a strict kcal diet to safely remove the weight along with a Hydro Therapy regiment to regain the muscle mass in his legs to improve his quality of life. This little man is also in need of dental surgery to improve the quality of his life.
Total Fundraising Needed for Jasper: Dental Surgery. = $200
