today is my birthday y'all!
i'm 27! wahoo!
my birthday wish...
is for this little girl to have her brain surgery that she needs.
"This beautiful and sweet little girl is a 1 year old dachshund who was taken to a local shelter shortly after being spayed. Her “family” surrendered her because of “behavior issues". After Greta was spayed she started to cry when touched and would snip at the person touching her. Instead of taking Greta to a vet to determine the cause of these behaviors, Greta was dumped at a local shelter. She was automatically “labeled” as unadoptable due to this behavior. The shelter contacted Rescued Treasures for our help. "
"Greta was immediately taken to a veterinarian who felt that she was suffering from a neurological problem. Greta then saw a series of three neurologist, the first specialist believing that she had a skull malformation that caused fluid build-up and put pressure on her brain and spine."
"The results from the MRI showed a cyst and severe fluid on her brain and spine. Greta was then taken to Long Island for a consultation with a top neurosurgeon who believes that through surgery, the cyst can be removed and further fluid build-up can be prevented. Greta will have a 95% chance of a normal life. If surgery is not done, the prognosis is that Greta will have only a year or two of life while continuing on the medications."
"Thankfully, this wonderful specialist extended a professional courtesy because we are a non-profit rescue group, and has capped the cost of the surgery to $5,000."
I would love for you to join this cause and spread the word!
I would love for you to visit Greta's page here and give $1, $5, $10 anything that you have to spare
so that we can raise funds for her to have surgery.
