Florida Dachshund Rescue saved sweet senior Porter from a shelter, after he had been shared on Facebook for several weeks.  No one stepped up to help him until one of FLDR's foster homes offered to foster him.  He was found as a stray in Citrus County and no one claimed him.  He was in bad shape.  He came in with overgrown nails, hair loss, flea infestation, an eye infection, ear infection, heart murmur, tumors on his chest and terrible dental disease.

After we rescued him, he went to the vet and we found out that he is totally deaf and completely blind. He is at least 12+ years old.  His skin is so bad that he needs to be on antibiotics and steroids for a few weeks, with weekly medicated baths.  His ears are still badly infected, so the vet flushed them and he is on medication for that also.  But on a good note, his heart murmur is very minor.

We are going to wait at least 2 weeks before getting bloodwork to determine if he can handle the dental and possibly remove the tumors on his chest.

Anything you can donate for his surgery and medical care is greatly appreciated.

Please share, cross-post and help us get the word out about him.

If you don't want to donate through FundRazr, you can send a check made out to Florida Dachshund Rescue to our treasurer:

Maria Lachney, Treasurer

Thank you in advance for your help.
