31529596_1532263246443420_r.jpegAt the age of 10, Pandy was found wandering the streets, hungry and disoriented, after his elderly owner passed away. The Animal Control Office picked him up and he was surrendered to us by family members. Now he is in foster with one of our wonderful Broken Tail Rescue volunteers. We are asking for donations to help us resolve Pandy's urgent medical needs and secure a healthy and pain-free future for him in a loving home. 

Pandy is completely blind. He has eye infections in both eyes that are beyond treatment. The eyes will need to be removed (which is okay because he's already 100% blind!), an estimated $440. He will need extensive dental care, an estimated $500. Pandy also has Anaplasma (tick-borne disease) and a Urinary Tract Infection, which, along with senior bloodwork and routine vetting, has already cost over $300 and will require more treatment with antibiotics  until resolved. 

Pandy has been through a lot. But that doesn't stop him from being energetic, playful, and incredibly sweet. He plays with as many toys as he can get his paws on and loves hanging out with his new cat and dog roommates. His blindness doesn't stop him from having a grand old time. In fact, he loves to explore so much that he already got himself stuck in the bathtub at his foster home (and promptly rescued)! We are certain that once he has received the care he needs he will have many happy days ahead of him in a loving forever home.

Will Pandy be available for adoption?
Yes! Once he has been treated for his urgent medical needs, this sweet and loving pup-at-heart will be ready to go to his forever home. He is currently being fostered by one of our volunteers and all interested applicants are welcome to visit him in foster. Please contact us through our website to set up a visit! www.brokentailrescue.org

Dear Pandy Supporters,

Yesterday was a big day at the vet for little Pandy. He had one of his infected, swollen eyes removed (he's already blind so this was good news for him as it means he will be in much less pain). Next month he will go back to take care of the other eye and we are continueing his antibiotic treatments for the Anaplasma and UTI.

We want to take a moment to share this update with you, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your contributions to his care. Despite his new very un-chic haircut, he is responding well to his treatments and thriving in his foster home. Soon he will be ready to go to a loving forever home (let us know if you're interested in becoming Pandy's forever family!).

We ask that you please share Pandy's story and gofundme page with anyone who may be interested in supporting his journey. You can re-share his Facebook posts from our page as well. We are still about $800 away from reaching our goal for his medical needs, and every dollar helps. Thank you, once again, for your support and donations. Pandy truly appreciates the community supporting him after all he has been through. Thank you.
