7/01/20 – Memorial
After only five months in rescue, we had to make the difficult decision to let Ray Ray go. His quality of life was beginning to decline, and we promised Ray Ray that we would not allow him to suffer. This sweet boy had been dealing with several different health issues. His foster mom adored Ray Ray and we are thankful to the wonderful care she gave him. Rest In Peace, sweet Ray Ray.
Ray Ray has settled in well at his foster home. He has a good appetite and has gained some needed weight. Ray Ray is a sweet boy who is doing his best to manage with some difficult health issues. After arriving in rescue, we could quickly see that he was in a lot of pain from a previous injury. Paperwork indicated that Ray Ray was hit by a car five years ago. Our vet determined that Ray Ray tore his CCL in the knee. He never had surgery to correct this and now has a lot of atrophy and difficulty using that leg. Ray Ray also has dental disease, swollen lymph nodes, an enlarged prostate, arrhythmias, and dental disease. We have completed bloodwork multiple times and have continued to find extremely low platelets. Because of this, Ray Ray is unable to undergo surgery because of the risk of not being able to clot. We have placed Ray Ray on hold for adoption at this time. His foster mom will be keeping him comfortable and we will continue to work with our vets to manage his care. Please consider making a donation to help with Ray Ray’s medical expenses.
Ray Ray and Trouble are a father and son pair. Their owner passed away last week and the landlord brought them to the local dog pound in West Virginia. They were tested with other dogs and did well. Both boys did wonderful with the volunteers and their children at the vet’s office. These boys were transported today to a foster home who agreed to take both. We will update their pages as we learn more about them.
