A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Even willows would weep for our Weeping Willow. The moon, the stars and the sun would also cry for a dog so neglected. This 6 year old chocolate and white Cocker Spaniel with a gentle temperament wanted help so badly that he actually jumped into our car when we went to assess him at the Brooklyn Shelter. Although he was initially picked up as a stray, the truth is that someone once owned this dog and allowed him to suffer to this beyond appalling extent: eyes bulging with glaucoma and ears so inflamed and infected that the canals have become completely calcified and closed. This poor soul is now a candidate for dual ear ablation surgery which, while it will render him deaf, is the only means of eradicating the tremendous pain he now suffers. There is simply no excuse for allowing an animal to suffer like this. If his family did not have the resources to care for him, he should have been surrendered to a rescue long ago so that someone could provide him with proper care. Willow is currently being stabilized at our vet's office where he is undergoing pain management.
After we have raised sufficient funds for his care - a minimum of $5,000.00 - he will receive the surgery he so desperately needs. If you are inclined to Weep with us for our Willow, please consider making a tax-deductible donation towards his veterinary expenses to the following PayPal recipient address: firstname.lastname@example.org or send a check payable to Abandoned Angels to PO Box 545426, Flushing, NY 11354. We are hopeful that, with your help, Willow may soon dry his tears. Thank you for caring.
