We were notified by the animal shelter staff about sweet Mona Lisa, who thought her very special indeed, and in need of rescue.
Just looking at her sagging belly, it looks like Mona Lisa has had many litters of puppies, (no doubt she was a wonderful mother to her babies), and was most likely tossed aside after her usefulness was gone.
We think she may be around 11-12 years old, and have found, after blood tests and x-rays, that she has severe arthritis of the spine, a thyroid condition, severe pododermatitis, and kidney disease.† We will do our very best to keep sweet and gentle Mona Lisa comfortable, as she is not a candidate for any surgery due to her declining health, but we sure can use your help ($) towards her continued care.† She needs to be on a low protein diet, which requires special food for her kidney disease, and many medications to keep her comfortable which, as you know, can be quite costly.
Mona Lisa will stay with her foster mom, where she will be loved, pampered, and kept comfortable and warm.
Any donation towards her continued care will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity.
