Brown Dog Coalition: Senior Pet Adoption Grants

Our most complex medical case this year, Lydia Lou was brought to the vet with an array of problems: breast cancer, an ectopic pregnancy, other physical ailments from being overbred, heartworm, AND overgrown/torn-out toenails. Because of the variety of conditions Lydia Lou had, it wasn’t guaranteed that she would survive all the necessary procedures.

Because of the variety of conditions Lydia Lou had, it wasn’t guaranteed that she would survive all the necessary procedures. Despite a few hiccups during surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy and tumors, Lydia Lou is alive, well, and pretty miffed that she has to wear a cone! Lydia Lou is now recovering in a foster home where, when she’s healthy enough, she will undergo heartworm treatment. Her foster says: “Even with all of this, she is a gentle angel. Little thing is one tough nugget! Lydia Lou has had the most horrible life. I want her to heal and get to know what a loving life is. My heart breaks for her. She will be the perfect companion for someone.”
