Shelby Needs Ear Surgery!

Shelby is a sweet, 7 1/2 year old Cocker Spaniel, recently surrendered unto ElderDog (www.elderdog.ca). ElderDog is one of those groups where I could sing their praises all day long.

Shelby's previous owner was negligent to the needs that we all know spaniels have. Mainly her ears! Spaniels are so prone to ear problems, and her owner just left it. The vet lifted up her ear and immediately said that it was the worst case she had ever seen. Her infections were left so long that her ears have calcified, leaving her deaf. The surgery that she needs is a Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bulla Osteotomy. Unfortunately she'll never be able to hear me tell her what a good dog she is : ( The cost of this surgery was estimated at around $4,000. I know that's a massive amount, but anything we can raise will help.

ElderDog does amazing work with the seniors and their dogs in this community. I've never met a sweeter bunch of people who work SO hard to take care of seniors and make sure that they can keep their dogs. This surgery is out of reach, but extremely necessary. If Shelby can get this surgery she can be pain free, and will live to a ripe old age.

Shelby has been rubbing her ears and crying the whole time it took me to write this. Please help us give this sweet girl a pain free life!
