Doris was at a kill shelter with a massive tumor on her stomach.
This senior baby was found with a huge tumor at the kill shelter. Don’t look away because this is Doris’s reality and nightmare. She would surely be euthanized if she didn’t have immediate rescue. Thankfully our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock took one look and immediately rushed to the shetler. Volunteers took Doris straight to their emergency vet. The tumor was much worse than what was expected.She’s been dragging that tumor around for a very long time and it’s now grown to the size of a melon. The sad thing is Doris only weighs 7 pounds.
Not only does she have this huge tumor she has other medical issues as well complicating her MEDICAL status and her life. She is emaciated dehydrated anemic , suffers from Tick Bourne disease and is heart worm positive and she’s a senior of 8 years old.
Doctors rushed Doris into emergency surgery to remove the grapefruit size mammary tumor on Doris’s belly. The tumor weighed a massive 1 pound. Doris went from weighing 7 lbs to 6 lbs. Doctors hope the stitches hold as the skin had to be stretched to close the huge hole after the tumor was removed. Now we need your help raising the funds to cover this major surgery.
We have partnered with RDR to help raise the funds they need to save Doris. Her emergency bills will be extremely high including emergency care and surgeries. That is not the type of funds rescuers have.
