We Love Her and She Doesn’t Even Know It

This is Clydette.  We love her so much, there are threads and threads of conversations about her and she has no idea that anyone even cares.

I want to change that for her.

She started out a few towns over many years ago and has settled here.

She is believed to be 9 years old. She hasn’t had medical care and doesn’t know any of the comforts a companion animal should.

She used to have a friend, but she lost her about 3 years ago and has been navigating life on her own since. We have a large coyote population and it can’t be easy hiding and running from them constantly.

She is savvy and likely feral but she is getting old. She was seen limping about a year ago. I don’t know if that injury healed or she hides it. She almost certainly has heartworms.

Trapping her has been attempted several times. She is too smart or or scared or both. I have been trying to come up with an effective plan to get her for at least 2 years.

I recently spoke to members from Duck Team 6 who suggested she might be a good darting candidate. They recommended the only darter they will use, Paul from Statewide Animal Control. I spoke with him and feel confident this will work. I believe it to be the only thing that will.

Its $550 for the darting itself (he uses a blow dart, not gun) and $50 an hour including travel. He lives near Houston, so that will be about $250 there and back.

She changes her routine often so time is important. Her location is pinpointed right now. I really need y’alls help to raise the funds quickly so we can get this girl safe.

I set the goal at 2k to cover and hurdles that may arise. Anything left over will go vet care that she undoubtedly needs.

Her after care plan is to go into a foster home to heal and begin her new journey safe from weather, cars, parasites, worms, coyotes, loneliness etc etc etc

Many of my neighbors care for her, in the only way we can, leaving her food but she needs so much more.

It’s time.

Please help us save our girl
