ZOEY'S STORY

Zoey, a large hound mix that we removed from the shelter, began to exhibit signs of lethargy and other clues that caused concern. She was diagnosed with a spleen tumor, which Woof! had removed several weeks ago. She’s doing well, but due to the nature of the tumor, she’s in hospice care for the next few months – and hopefully will survive a lot longer. That surgery, plus her medicine and care, is costing us over $5,000.

FOSTERING ZOEY

When Zoey first came into my care, she suffered from extreme separation anxiety, bathroom training inconsistencies, and aggression toward other dogs.  With love, patience, and training, Zoey has blossomed into a calm, devoted, and gentle dog.  Zoey is now able to calmly pass other dogs on the street and can cope when her foster mom has to go to work.  She has a lot of love to give, and is a deeply loyal and affectionate dog.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR HER?

Unfortunately, Zoey had a cancerous tumor on her spleen.  Woof Rescue fully covered her medical costs, including veterinary visits, surgical removal of the tumor, and post-operative treatment and medications.  While her ultimate prognosis is uncertain, Woof Rescue sponsors stable, nurturing "fospice" (foster hospice) care for Zoey to live out her days in peace and dignity.
