Hurley is a 8-9 year old rescued miniature pinscher that became blind due to diabetes and needs our help to save his eyes. Hurley was rescued from a High Kill Shelter in rural North Carolina. He was pulled by a once wonderful min pin rescue that is no longer open named, Friends of Penny. I, myself drove from Charlotte to Rutherforton, N.C. to pick up Hurley and bring into my home to foster. Hurley didn't have the best of life when rescued and was abused by his humans, who tied him up in their backyard and threw things at him when he barked. So, it took some time to help Hurley learn that not all humans are bad and that he was safe to never be hurt again. After three months I decided to foster fail on my Hurley and knew he would be my Best Buddy for years to come. On July 15th 2011 two weeks after moving back to California Hurley started to drink a lot of water. Being an owner of already one diabetic min pin I knew exactly what was wrong. That day Hurley was diagnosed with diabetes and was started on 1 unit of insulin twice a day. Three weeks after taking his insulin Hurley started to form cataracts. Today Hurley is completely blind. He was doing really well adjusting to not being able to see, but cataracts build pressure in the eyes and Hurley's eyes were feeling this pressure. My vet says the eye drops to control Hurley's eyes pressure is not working and in time Hurley's eyes will burst. I have TWO options: I can remove both of Hurley's eyes. Or I can have the cataracts removed and Hurley can see again. I want to go with option number #2. However, this surgery is VERY expensive. My vet is willing to work with me and give a rescue discount, but's it's still $2500.00. I saved $500 on my own, but I need YOUR help to raise the rest. Hurley deserves to see again and get the BEST medical care possible. He is my #1 and I LOVE him more than myself. I will do anything to help him get this surgery. If you can help by donating even one dollar it would make a difference. I NEED YOU. HURLEY NEEDS YOU MORE. I will be trying a lot of ideas to raise the $$$ needed. Please keep an eye out for an Facebook Auction from the wonderful artists at Etsy that have donated really beautiful mostly pet themed items. If any of you have any ideas or ways of raising money please do tell all! Please HELP me, HELP HURLEY! If not for me....please do it for the animals. The surgery is VERY expensive, but Hurley's life is PRICELESS.
