Help Make Maddie Well
Maddie-Rue, an approximately five-year-old female Malti-Poo, was found by a good Samaritan and his children on the side of route 91 near Northampton, where she was almost mistaken for a pile of snow! The good Samaritan brought her to Florence Animal Clinic in Northampton.
Maddie-Rue was covered in heavy matts that took four hours to shave off and weighed almost 1/3 of her 8lb body weight. Northampton Animal Control was called in, and Maddie-Rue began her recuperation journey. During her stay at the clinic, it was discovered that Maddie-Rue needed to be spayed, to have mammary tumors and an eyelid mass removed, and to have a specialist surgery to repair a permanently displaced kneecap.
After she was featured on the local news a few days before Christmas, Maddie-Rue attracted widespread attention from the public, and many people were interested in adopting her. However, before she could go to a forever home, she needed placement in foster care where she could recover from her surgeries. A kind and loving local family came forward and offered Maddie-Rue a temporary home for her recovery.
So far Maddie-Rue is doing well, and she is expected to make a full recovery from all of her surgeries, but her journey is far from over. She needs two more surgeries before she can be adopted. We are looking to raise $2,000 for her care. Please help her on her way to recovery so that she can embrace a new life in a forever home.
Maddie Rue has had her last two surgeries with an orthopedic specialist and is recovering well at her foster home! Her foster brother Ping is taking good care of her, and her foster parents are doing a great job making sure that she does her physical therapy.
