Shakti can see!!! She has come a long way since being found in a dumpster, abandoned to die. Thank you to everyone who has taken this sweet girl's story to heart. It's people like you who care and love animals that make this possible. Shakti's cataract surgery was featured on the local news. Here is the link to her story http://www.wesh.com/news/dog-abandoned-in-dumpster-can-see-again-after-cataract-surgery/24922396. Shakti is recovering nicely from her eye surgery and she continues to receive daily insulin shots for the diabetes. Shakti is available for adoption to a loving home. If you are interested in adopting Shakti, please e-mail or send a message on facebook. Thank you again.
Shakti, our sweet "dumpster dog" rescue is having eye surgery on 3/11/14 at Affiliated Veterinary Specialists. They are doing surgery to one eye first and the second eye on another day. If you can make a donation to help with the cost of the surgery, it would be greatly appreciated. You can read Shakti's story and progress on my facebook page. Thank you for your support.
Shakti "the dumpster dog" UPDATE: Shakti was taken from Shaffer Animal Hospital to the Veterinary Emergency Clinic of Central Florida in Casselberry and she has been there since Friday (7/12/13) evening. Shakti has been diagnosed with diabetes and she is in ketosis which means her body is using fat for energy (hence the reason why she was not gaining weight). She has been on continuous IV fluids and 24 hour care which includes insulin shots and tests to check her insulin and glucose levels. She will be there until Monday, by which time we hope she has been stabilized enough to go back home. Shakti also had little protein in her body which required a blood transfusion from a healthy large dog. Leslie Yates used one of her dogs as the blood donor. Shakti appears to be a fighter and we are doing everything necessary to give this girl a fighting chance. Please help Shakti! The veterinary clinic bill will be approximately $4,000, which does not include her care a treatment after she goes home. We appreciate the outpouring of support and concern for Shakti. I know there is bad in this world, and Shakti did not deserve the treatment she got, but it is wonderful to see people coming together to help the cause of this sweet dog. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Please visit www.gofundme.com and search for Save Shakti, the "dumpster dog". Thank you.
Shakti "the dumpster dog" UPDATE: Shakti is at Shaffer Animal Hospital in Oviedo. She was taken there this morning by Leslie Yates. She was not putting on the weight we had hoped so she is at the vet's office where they will push fluids in her through an IV. I will post updated news about her progress once we hear from the vet. Thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to help this sweet girl. We truly appreciate it.
UPDATE: Shakti now weighs 47 lbs. She is doing so much better. Still getting her daily insulin shots which seems to be working. Shakti still cannot see due to the starvation. Shakti needs cataract surgery so hopefully she will be able to see. Thank you to everyone who has donated to help get to where she is. We still have not met our goal and are raising money to help pay for her cataract surgery. Please continue to share. Thank you so much.
I know it is not much but I know that every little bit helps. Can not wait to see her be able to see again. Shakti is such a sweet dog and I am so glad that she is being fostered in my neighborhood. I feel honored to know this beautiful girl.
