Special-Needs Intakes Require Extra TLC and Financial Commitment

Teri's glaucoma caused a lot of hurt.
Mickey is adjusting to having 3 legs.
   Both Teri the dog and Mickey the cat are recovering after recent traumatic injuries. Teri the Jack Russell Terrier sat shaking at a city shelter with a very swollen, painful eye before her arrival at our rescue.  Unfortunately, the eye could not be saved, and had to be removed, but now she's bouncy and better. Meanwhile, a rear leg of the young marmalade tabby we named Mickey was so damaged it had to be amputated. His confidence grows daily.
    A few others with physical challenges who are here awaiting adoption are: Amos the deaf Siamese cat, with hyperthyroidism and a stomach mass; Gracie the Calico mix (mostly blind but can find her food or litter box); Sampson the friendly orange-and-white female (on insulin); Little Bit, an older female feline with diabetes; and Misiu, a gentle Ragamuffin male with mouth lesions.

    On the dog side is Remmy, a little guy with failing back legs; Benny the blind Min-Pin (diabetes); Champ the Chow Chow/Golden Retriever with a bad hip and limp; and Sparky Boy, a Peke on meds for seizures. Surgery survivors include Jasper and Kirby (each has one eye now); Kellie and Otis (each had a torn ACL); and Lenny, a Fox Terrier/Chihuahua (healed broken leg).
More than ever, the number of our medical cases are at all-time high, while monetary donations
