lorrettaramirez posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHi everyone! My name is Lorretta..I found 2 wonderfully sweet deaf and almost blind 13 year old pups on the side of the road eating trash. I took them to the Hawaiian humane society to asked if i could keep them because they are pretty much guaranteed to be euthanized (they werent supposed to tell me that) but i needed to know. I took them to the vet cause i could tell there was A LOT going on. I found out they both possibly have cancer..They also have gum and heart disease. Treatment for both has come to over 800 bucks each..and that doesnt even include the surgeries. The blood work for both..check up cost, treatment just for there ear infections(vet thinks they had it for over a year cause it was so bad). They also need to get ultrasounds to make sure they see everything that is going on. My husband is in the military and I am trying to become a mommy to our first child. We werent expecting this to happen..but to know if i left them there..I was basically signing off to them being killed just because nobody wants old dogs. Its VERY normal in Hawaii for dogs to just be kicked to the curb from people not wanting to pay to ship there pets to the mainland. Its awful..i know. This is the 4th time ive stopped to pick up a dog. This time it was 2..go figure. I have tried to find a good home but after they find out they have all these problems no one is interested. If i could even get a few donations to help at LEAST help save towards even just getting blood work and ultra sounds done so at least I can not only give them the pain medication they desperately need..but deserve..and I can at east get a head start towards helping them live to the fullest <3 <3 thank you for taking the time to read my story <3
