Thank you to the Petco Foundation for your recent grant to Heather’s Foster Dogs to aid homeless senior dogs. We strive to foster them, care for their medical needs, prepare them for adoption and find forever homes, or to offer hospice care if needed.
The recent generous funding of the Petco Foundation enabled Heather’s Foster Dogs to pull a 10 year old black lab named Ralphie (pictured), who had been waiting over a month at a local shelter for rescue. Because of this funding, we were able to get an intestinal parasite screening and treat him for whipworms, bring his vaccinations up to date, and have a thorough blood panel run by our vet, who diagnosed Ralphie with beginning stages of renal disease. Following veterinary instruction, Ralphie’s foster home has started him on a rather pricey prescription renal food, over $50 for a 17 pound bag, and a renal supplement which costs $70 bottle for a one month supply. Bloodwork has been re-run once already. Ralphie is showing improvement. So with steady care and the continuation of his prescription diet and supplements, we are hoping Ralphie’s kidneys will improve enough for him to get neutered and placed for adoption. He is gaining weight and thriving in foster care, so we know that brighter days are here thanks to your help.
Thank you so much to CN Railroad for honoring Heather’s Foster Dogs with a grant in recognition of the volunteer efforts of Sergio Zoruba, CN employee out of the Homewood office.
