Bowman came to us from a shelter, where he landed as a stray. He was heartworm-positive, stage 3, but this sweet, handsome boy has completed his recovery from heartworm thanks to his loving foster home. Bowman is vision-impaired and did visit an eye specialist and, at their recommendation, had his left eye removed at the time of his neuter. He’s also had a few lumps removed. He’s been through so much in the past few months, but he remains the sweet, affectionate golden boy he is. Bowman is now in a new foster home since his surgeries and is doing well. Though he doesn’t know many commands, his foster family is working with him. He is learning his way around the house and does pretty well. Unfortunately, the eye specialist did mention that Bowman’s other eye has cataracts and may eventually have to be removed as well. He is being treated with medications and supplements to support his eye. Total charges for Bowman, to date, are $3,233.87. And we have many more rescues that are in similar shape medically, but we take care of all of them! Again we thank you for your support.
