Seymour – GVAC’s Pet in Need
On June 17th, GVAC took in 4 pekingese dogs, all with bad teeth, unspayed/neutered, matted fur, dirty and very sad. The puppy mill they came from was shut down and the people running the mill packed up and left all of the dogs there. The fifth dog is a poodle cross, in the same condition as the pekingese dogs. Sadly, one of the older dogs, who has been named Seymour by his foster mom, has a condition in his back legs that renders him unable to use them. We’d like to ask for help so that we can provide Seymour with a cart of wheelchair so that he can live a fuller life. While in foster care this weekend, he started playing and running around on his front legs, enjoying his freedom with his new foster brother, Barkley.
Toofles update June 11th, 2012:
Toofles is doing really well since his surgery! He still needs to go back for his second dental, but his abscess is healing very well and he has an excellent appetite! He is a laid back fellow, he walks around his foster mom’s place with a lot of confidence. He doesn’t have a problem with other cats and uses the litter box just fine. Dr. Tammy & I discovered that Toofs actually does have some sight. I don’t know if his eyesight has improved because everything else is healing, or if it’s because he has a steady diet of high quality food, but I’m not too concerned about that, as his eyes are sparkly and so much clearer now. Thank you to everyone who has been donating to his care, so far, we’ve raised approximately $650 together!
Meet Toofles. He is was captured by Animal Control after he was seen smashing into things. He is blind, unneutered, covered in cuts with a huge abscess on his face. Toofles needs extensive dental surgery as he is suffering from severe dental disease. This is exactly the type of cat that GVAC needs to be there for. If you can please share this with friends and ask everyone you know to donate even $1 toward his care, together we can help this kitty and take away his pain. http://www.animalcrusaders.ca/donate-today/
Simba Update – July 1, 2010 GVAC took Simba into care from the CRD pound to give him the dental care he desperately needed. At his vet appointment for assessment, tests revealed he is also diabetic.
Simba now has a clean, healthy mouth and a large fan club at his vet office. He is a constant charmer and wins hearts left and right. He is currently with a wonderful foster Mom who patiently monitors his blood sugar levels, insulin dosage and administers cuddles as prescribed but he needs a forever home. If you are one of those special people who knows the reward of caring for a diabetic cat, please consider extending your generosity and affection to this handsome fellow.
As well, Simba would greatly appreciate a contribution to assist with his vet care. To relieve his pain and give him the chance of a healthy future, GVAC has tended to his extensive dental surgery and is working with an excellent vet to understand his sugars and the best options for controlling diabetes.
