Jovie was suffering for months with a cancerous tumor while her family just watched.

 

Our partners at The Arrow Fund are working on a horrible neglect case. Animal Control officers found her on a rural road in Hopkins County, Kentucky. This poor baby was held for 5 days at the shelter with no medical care. Nobody claimed her so the shelter set her euthanasia date that night. TAF volunteers knew they had to act quickly before she was euthanized. Volunteers were not prepared for what they saw next.

Now named Jovie, she has a huge tumor taking up a large portion of her body. It is infected, leaking, swollen and very painful. She suffered for months will the tumor grew and her family just watched. Volunteers rushed Jovie to their emergency vet clinic.

Then we got heartbreaking news. After getting cleared by the cardiologist for surgery and aspiration results came back on the tumor. The results showed that it is indeed cancer but we are hoping it is still encapsulated. This would mean a more complex amputation to get larger margins and a change in protocol for anesthesia due to her heart condition. The Arrow Fund have made a promise to help Jovie but they cannot do that without your support.

The surgery is very complex including a tumor removal with an amputation. Jovie was rushed into surgery late last night. She survived the surgery but is still extremely critical. Doctors took an additional pathology test, because it will include bone and a large tumor, results could take up to two weeks. Her surgery and care costs are in the thousands and this is just not the type of fund The Arrow Fund has.

If you could help with Jovie’s extensive surgery, we would greatly appreciate it. We have stepped in to help in our own little way. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and friends and you get to tell them they helped save Jovie’s life.


UPDATE 1-4-18: Jovie came to TAF with a huge , painful mass that was leaking fluid . She was immediately put on pain meds and surgery was scheduled after stabilizing her. After getting cleared by the cardiologist for surgery the leg and tumor were removed. The tumor had progressed to the point that the adjoining leg had to be amputated in order to save Jovie’s life. Another surgery was required to ensure proper healing, and another, small tumor was discovered and removed. The Arrow Fund is fortunate to have access to board-certified veterinary specialists to assist in these difficult cases. It is cancer, she underwent a complex surgery to receive the best margins. Jovie was just sedated this week to close up a small area and another small mass was removed.
