Love at first sight!
Melissa O., of Seattle, WA knew Stormy was “the one” the moment she laid eyes on our web site. Confirmed by meeting her, she adopted her immediately. Congratulations to our little Stormy for finding her forever home with Melissa!!
All about Stormy
This sweet, calm girl came into a West Virginia shelter as a stray and she found herself on death row there. We had to help her! When our volunteers picked her up, a large mammary mass was noticed. We had an initial assessment done and brought her to Portland, where she was seen by Dr. Hardinge at Wilsonville Veterinary Clinic. Since 50% of these types of masses are cancerous, surgery is scheduled for October 15. This sweet, petite girl will undergo a double mammectomy (same as mastectomy in humans), plus a lumpectomy on a smaller mass on a different mammary gland. We are keeping all paws crossed for this sweet girl and will post updates to her case here. A chest xray, blood panel and heartworm test was also done (neg).[/two_third_last]
We need your help with Stormy’s veterinary bills, which totalled in excess of $1,500.
Update: Surgery is complete and all tumors are benign!! Hooray for Stormy!
