Marci looks great after surgery and acts as if nothing ever happened! Who says blind dogs can’t have fun? THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to her surgery. Without our supporters we can’t save and take care of sweeties like Marci who need out help. So we are forever grateful to you! Doesn’t she look great!?!?! We are so proud of her! Next she will be spayed. :)

Noelle, the senior, blind black lab in our Sanctuary may not be able to see, but she still loves traipsing through the snow.
Marci is making a great recovery after the enucleation! She’s chirpy, playful and asking for belly rubs. It’s obvious that she feels better and is without that awful, chronic migraine pain. She’ll be able to take her “hat” (e-collar) off and staples out in about 5-6 more days. We are so happy for this darling little gal - it’s a great feeling to know she has relief. Next she’ll be spayed and then ready for adoption. :)
We are about 1/3 of the way to our goal in fundraising for her surgery and spay. This was a very unexpected medical case, and we were hit with a huge bill. Any contributions toward her care are tax deductible, and we can provide a receipt upon request. We are immensely grateful for all contributions, and even $1 is a great donation. Many donating small amounts adds up! You can find Marci’s fundraising page here: Marci’s Page
We will continue to post updates on her so that you can keep up with her story and enjoy looking at her adorable self. She’s a cutie patootie for sure!
Marci is a lovely Cockapoo that we just brought into rescue. This beautiful little girl has been through a great deal. She lost her owner, then lost her siblings as they were adopted one by one while she sat in the shelter run with nobody stopping to visit with her. She is also blind.
We visited with the Veterinary Ophthalmologist today, 3 1/2 days after coming into our rescue. We learned that she has bilateral glaucoma, and she is in extreme pain. It’s like having a never ending migraine.
The only way we can relieve her pain is to remove the eyes. Removal will completely rid the pain for her and prevent any future medical issues. This is not an uncommon procedure with animals, and animals live extremely well without them. We have another senior black lab in our rescue’s sanctuary that had the removal in ‘07 - she’s still doing wonderful. So now we want to take care of Marci and let her live without pain, too.
She will have surgery Thursday, January 30th. We have established a fundraiser page for her to help raise funds for her surgery and her spay. Please consider sharing and know that even $1 is a wonderful gift.
