Rosko is a 13-year-old chihuahua mix who was adopted from Moreno Valley Animal Shelter on Friday, March 3rd.  He was already missing one eye and the other was sutured shut because it was badly infected and enlarged.  Nobody knows exactly what happened, but his chances of being adopted due to his age and medical condition was very slim.

His sutures were taken out on Tuesday, March 7th and his eye was still very inflamed.  After a visit to an animal ophthalmologist, we discovered a massive hole in the front of his eye.  While his body has "repaired" it with fibrous tissue, the doctor is unsure if the tissue is strong enough to hold.  For the meantime, Rosko is on many different expensive medications to help with the infection.  Hopefully the medications work, because the removal of his only eye would be the next step towards his recovery.

While our hearts are very big for senior/special needs animals, we are currently living on one income.  Because these visits, medications, and procedures are so expensive, we're asking for help for Rosko's treatments.  It would mean the world to us to help us get Rosko to a full recovery, whether it's with or without his eye.  Rosko is such a sweet, loving boy and I want nothing more than to show him that love means more than age or his special needs.

Thank you so much for reading!  Any size donation is greatly appreciated and if you can't donate, please share Rosko's story for us.

Thank you so much,

Ashley and Kevin

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated, we've reached our goal! I can't even explain how grateful I am for the love and support we've received for Rosko. I know he appreciates it too!

If you'd still like to donate, those additional funds will be allocated towards future doctor's visits, surgery (if he needs it), and a mobility aid once he's recovered.

His next doctor's appointment is in two weeks, so we will make sure to update you on the condition of his eye and whether it's healthy enough to stay.

Again, thank you so much! Our hearts are so full!
