Animals First Foundation has been caring for Louie since he was abandoned at the vet’s office a few months ago. He was malnourished, couldn’t walk, was partially blind and had seizures. He recovered well and quickly became a beloved rescue for our rescue family and the fosters he befriended. We have been very fortunate to have foster parents who gave well beyond expected and where many would have found the effort too demanding. When dealing with an animal with special needs such as our Louie, the challenges require all of your strength, patience, compassion and love.
After an MRI and spinal tap revealed brain lesions, we proceeded to monitor and medicate him accordingly. All hoped that his lesions would remain controlled but that was not the case. This week our boy suffered multiple seizures. Another MRI and spinal tap revealed the lesions had grown and now require surgery to be removed. Louie’s emergency fees so far total $1,543.20 and the estimated surgery cost to remove the lesions will be another $6,621.00. We need your assistance to give Louie a chance at life that he has so enjoyed when he was well.
