Cypress and Cap: Left to die with no food, water
Animal Aid for Vermilion Area recently received a phone call about 2 dogs in poor conditions and poor health. The caller stated that law enforcement had been called and nothing was being done. An AAVA volunteer decided to take a look for herself and what she found shocked her.
Two dogs, Cypress and Cap, were living in filthy conditions with no food and no water and completely insufficient shelter. They appeared to have been abandoned as it seemed the house was unoccupied. One of the dogs, Cypress, had ears that were so infected that green pus was draining from them. It was obvious that this was an infection that Cypress had been suffering with for a very long time. Her eyes were infected with green pus as well.
The volunteer called the sheriff's department and filed a formal, written complaint. The dogs were seized and animal control brought them to a vet.
Cypress' condition was even worse than previously expected. Cypress was found to have ears so severely infected that the infection went all the way to the cheek bone and she is in terrible pain. Pain meds were immediately given.
Cypress was sedated and her ears were thoroughly examined. Her ears have been infected for so long that now her ear canals have calcified and must be removed. The infection can't even drain from her ears - it drains from holes on the sides of her face under her ears. The infection is so deep that medicine can't even reach it.
This surgery is a special surgery that requires special skills and will cost about $1,500 per ear. Animal Aid for Vermilion Area does not have the money to pay for her surgery. We need your help. She is a very sweet dog.
Please help us to help these dogs start on the road to a better life. With every purchase, you can help give Cypress and Cap a new life.
