Help for Col. Potter Cairn Fran

Fran is a sweet, happy little girl who came to Col. Potter with her younger brother after living in a situation of horrendous neglect. She is 12 years old, but had never been spayed, which often contributes, and in her case, has indeed contributed to health issues that may have been avoided with a spay earlier in life. Fran has five mammary tumors and an enlarged lymph node. To remove all of the tumors will require two surgeries. We are hoping that everything is benign, but will be waiting on the first set of biopsy results to decide whether to proceed with the second surgery and spay, as well as yet a third time under anesthesia to complete her dental
cleaning. Besides all of that, Fran is almost completely blind from untreated dry eye, and requires drops and ointments several times a day. She is receiving twice-weekly medicated baths and oral medications to combat an extensive skin infection, and has a lot of arthritis in
her legs. Despite all of this, she does a happy dance when she hears the leashes come out, because while she struggles on walks, she loves them. And because she can’t keep up with the boys, she gets her own private walk. Sometimes after a bath or eye treatment, she shows her perky side and initiates play with her brother, and we were able to capture them on video:

Thank you for helping us to get Fran the care she deserves after so long without proper care.
