Breed: Chihuahua Mix
This is completely heartbreaking but we are welcoming Winston to the Forget Me Not family. Winston is an owner surrender that joined our family earlier this morning. This little babe was left outside for weeks all alone.. the amount of neglect this little man has experienced is so traumatizing that he couldn't even make eye contact with volunteers who have helped him thus far. He was rushed to the vet by a volunteer and is having every test possible done to ensure his recovery.
Thankfully the response from his parvo test was negative but his blood work did reflect potential early kidney failure and x-rays revealed a foreign object lodged in his stomach, which is probably the reason he has no desire to eat. He is on an IV until we see progress in his appetite and we are anticipating surgery to remove the foreign object sometime next week if all goes well.
He's lost hope but we are here to save him and give him every ounce of hope we can. We are asking for donations to help us cover the care costs for Winston... estimates as of right now for tests and surgery total $1,094. There is definitely a chance the costs could rise based on his treatment so any donation or method of support helps!
