Nadia Needs Ectopic Ureter Surgery

Nadia has spent her entire life in and out of shelters. For seven years she has suffered with a birth defect causing a continual urine leak. 

She has been passed around from home to home and from shelter to shelter. She put up with diapers, never tore them, and loved her people with all she had but eventually the diaper changes would wear on her owners and she was given up.

When I met her, I couldn't let her be surrendered to another shelter, this time to be put to sleep for her medical condition, and HALO took her.

At HALO when we make a commitment to a rescue we pledge to them to provide for them as if they are our own pets and in her case it was to get to the bottom of her leak.

We were referred to a specialist, Dr. Tom Smith at the Animal Specialty and Emergency Surgery Center. After numerous tests including MRI’s, radiographs, and scopes she was diagnosed with an Ectopic Ureter. Basically her ureter (tube from kidney to bladder) in connected to her urethra, a genetic birth defect. The surgery involves going into her bladder and reconnecting her ureter back to the bladder so that she can collect her urine hence stopping the leak.

Once she gets this surgery she will finally be able to find a home that will cherish her and give her love without condition. She deserves that and only wish that we could have helped her sooner in life. 

Her surgeries full cost is $3300, with a very large shelter discount. We have raised a portion and only have $2000 to go.

Please help us raise the rest of her medical fund so that we can get her healthy and in a forever home!
