Goldie was surrendered to the local county shelter back in January with a mouth full of “tumors.” Volunteers at the shelter were very concerned for Goldie’s health, which was deteriorating rapidly without veterinary care or a proper diet. Despite her horrible & obvious pain, her loving disposition still managed to shine through & volunteers worked hard to find a rescue to save her. As if prayers had been answered, the Humane Society was VERY blessed to have been contacted by a brand new foster family that embraced Goldie’s medical needs with unconditional love & patience.
Goldie initially had so many symptoms that it took several weeks of quarantine, many days of forced feedings, and numerous veterinary visits, tests & assorted drug regiments to finally figure out what was going on. Goldie has a rare but very manageable condition called mycoplasma felis, which was causing ALL of her symptoms: conjunctivitis, gingivitis, generalized weakness, & arthritic tendencies… but FINALLY, with a diagnosis in hand she is now feeling better than she has in possibly years!
Unfortunately, the damage to her teeth was too severe & all of them had to be pulled, BUT Goldie knows no disability! She talks back to you, eats, and fetches balls & straws all day long. She LOVES her new pain-free life & is looking for a forever home that cares not that her little tongue might poke out of her mouth from time to time.
Goldie’s veterinary expenses are $575 to date, which has put us over budget on our foster program expenses. PLEASE consider making a donation so that we can stay in budget & continue to help other animals that depend on us as Goldie did.
