Waggytail Rescue's Medical Fundraiser - Summer 2022






Waggytail Rescue is committed to finding homes for animals in need. While all our fosters come into our care needing a little patience, love, and TLC, some need more involved medical care. Through our partner vets we gain a broad view of the care needed for our medical fosters. At times there are fosters that require further medical intervention beyond a basic vet exam - echocardiograms, specialist visits, medication, and prescription diets. These costs can really add up but as a rescue we are committed to supporting our Waggytails through their recoveries. Today, we're asking for your help in fundraising for some of our dogs and cats who are most in need.

Penelope, looking great with her newly gained weight.

Penelope arrived into our care in March heartworm positive, anemic, and seriously underweight at just 29 pounds. She also had parasites and a terrible cough, which scared us given her heart's condition. After multiple vet visits, several rounds of bloodwork, a prescription diet, and various medications, Penelope is a healthy 45 pounds and loving life in her foster home. While she isn't out of the woodwork yet with her anemia, we are optimistic she will make a full recovery.

JJ is a kitten who has had a rough start at life. JJ was found abandoned in a box together with her sister when they were 2 months old. JJ started to develop seizures at her foster home a month later. It went from short episodes under 20s to longer ones around a minute or two. JJ was seen by a neurologist and she’s now on seizure management medication every 8 hours. Besides this, JJ was also seen by a cardiologist for her heart murmur and it turned out she has a hole in her heart. It is considered harmless right now but she will need to be monitored closely for the rest of her life. 

Friday, at her most recent vet visit.

Friday is a senior pekingese pulled from NYCACC this past spring. Friday's head tilt might look adorable, but it's just one sign of her neurological issues. Friday also has a wobbly walk and gets confused at times, which makes our vet think she is recovering from a recent stroke. Sweet, fluffy Friday has settled into her foster home but will need specialist visits for a neurological evaluation and may need physical therapy to help her regain coordination.

Bengal is a senior cat who was abandoned by her family and ended up at our city shelter. She spent a few weeks at the shelter before she was pulled by Waggytail in March. Bengal is suffering from IBD so her fosters have been taking her to our vet every few weeks to monitor her progress. Bengal is also on prescription food to manage her condition. 

We appreciate your support and THANK YOU for helping to save a life.
