What could have been the end for Otter ended up being his lucky day... You see Otter was scheduled to be euthanized the day we rescued him. He was half the size of his litter mates, regurgitating his food, malnourished and weak.
We made sure he received a full examination where he was diagnosed with Persistent Right Aortic Arch (PRAA). In basic terms, a blood vessel was wrapped around his esophagus which restricted his ability to get food into his stomach. This essentially caused Megaesophagus (ME) as a secondary condition. Surgery was performed which resolved the PRAA and ME conditions. He recuperated under the watchful eye of his foster mom, made a complete recovery and is now enjoying life in his forever home. He has grown into the happiest, healthiest, handsomest big boy around!
An individual was driving down a dark road in Ohio when Allie darted out in front of her. The good Samaritan rushed her to an emergency hospital and began to search for her her owners but no one stepped forward, no one reported her missing. This individual then began putting out pleas for help for the German Shorthair Pointer pup and we answered the call. Once she was stabilized and able to be transported, Allie made her way to Hagerstown.
X-rays determined she had multiple fractures in her right leg and buck shot embedded under her skin. Veterinary staff performed a long, difficult, emergency surgery to amputate the wounded leg. Her foster family spoiled her rotten, loved her to pieces, and prepared her for life in an equally wonderful family. She was adopted by our Foster Coordinator, Stephanie, and can be seen regularly at FOS events and activities!
Mama Rose and her litter of 5 pups came to us all the way from Texas after having been found abandoned and alone. The pups were in decent shape thanks to great care by their mama but she, on the other hand, was in pretty rough shape. After a thorough veterinary exam, it was determined that she was about 4 years of age and had already had several litters of pups. She was also diagnosed with dental issues from chewing on metal or other hard materials, a severe skin condition, an ear infection and a hematoma on her hip. It was also determined that she would need to have her eye removed because of limited vision and recurring eye infections.
That was her story in August... and let's just say this story, of course, has a For Otis Sake happy ending. All 5 pups were adopted (after almost breaking the Internet due to the overwhelming response from applicants) AND Mama Rose (now known as Mama Derby Rose) was adopted by her foster family. We can understand why they grew so attached to this kind, gentle soul who sacrificed so her pups could thrive.
Dudley came to For Otis Sake as a senior hound with severe dental issues, splenic hemangiosarcoma, and a host of other serious medical needs. He is considered a Forever Foster so FOS pays for all of his medical treatments which currently include medications for heart/lung/kidney issues and dementia averaging over $800 per month alone.
Bessie had severe medical issues when she arrived with For Otis Sake including mammary tumors, a ruptured hernia, tangled intestines, dental issues and lyme disease. Bessie is also considered a Forever Foster and FOS pays for all of her medical treatments which has included three surgeries (totaling over $10,000) and regular ultrasounds.
Benson, another FOS senior rescue, was an absolute mess when he arrived. His hair was so matted and tangled the only option was to shave him down. It was obvious he suffered from long term neglect. Benson was treated for dental and kidney issues and was adopted into his forever family in 2016.
