She came to us in poor condition having suffered a stroke. Her hind legs weak and very wobbly, her teeth god awful the list was endless.

It’s almost 2 years since we took her in and yes she’s still with us, she’s a tough old bird. She’s also been with the same foster and his dogs since day one. During this time, she’s received the best possible care and more and more again.

Last week, she had minor surgery to remove an irritating cyst which kept returning, it drove her crazy and stopped her and everyone else from sleeping. Thankfully, Dr Andy at Acorn was able to remove it with minimal anaesthetic and speed. She’s now so much happier and everyone sleeps soundly once again.

Over the past 2 years we’ve spent $32,237 and of course it’s ongoing, she needs daily meds. Without painkillers she wouldn’t be able to walk or stand comfortably.

As it’s almost Easter, we’d like to ask you to donate for Francesca’s future.

Every dog in our care requires food and a foster until homed. Plus, health check, desex, vaccinations, de-flea, worming, Heartgard & microchip. Some of our older dogs need ongoing medication and regular health checks.
