The hardest thing you can do when you truly love something is let it go. That is exactly what a heartbroken family had to do when they found themselves unable to give the adorable Reggie, a 1-year-old Sharpei X Ridgeback, the expensive veterinary care he so desperately needed.
Though his painful condition, cherry eye, is not life-threatening, at just 1-year-old, he would be at risk of lifelong effects on his vision if we do not immediately seek him the best veterinary care we can. He deserves to be free from discomfort, and that is what we are here for, to make sure he is healthy and happy.
With the devastating long term effects of Covid-19 impacting families and their loving pets, we expect to receive many more heart-breaking phone calls from families like Reggie’s, who are doing the only thing they can when faced with the heart-wrenching decision.
As we approach one year without any fundraising in our local communities, we need your help, now more than ever. If you are in the position to contribute to Reggie’s care, and that of all the other dogs that need us, we would be so grateful for your support.
***Please note Reggie is not yet available for rehoming until he has recovered from his surgery, we will keep you all up to date with his journey ***
