Cricket was brought into the Nash County Animal Shelter in Nashville, NC to be PTS due to her condition. But we had the visiting vet do a quick evaluation and he said she could be saved! We need your help to do so. We need Pet Sponsor Angels.
Cricket was brought into the Nash County Animal Shelter in Nashville, NC to be PTS due to her condition, a prolapsed rectum. We had the visiting Shelter vet do a quick evaluation and he said she might could be saved! We need your help to do so. We need Pet Sponsor Angels.

Nash County Animal Friends (NCAF) quickly rushed her to the Nash County Animal Hospital. We don't have photos (the ones done prior to pickup was by a neighbor) but her eyes are green. She is extremely skinny and we estimate about 5 months old. Dr. Burlingham had planned to sedate and do conservative surgery in the morning of 7/27. However, Cricket was still in great pain that the meds weren't touching. So Emergency Surgery was done the night of 7/26. She think the tissue is still viable, although dark. If this repair doesn't work, they will have to do the more extensive major surgery with Cricket being hospitalized for at least 2 weeks. The conservative surgery was to clean, put back inside and stitch closed. Right now, all that can be done is being done and prayers are needed.

Prior to the emergency, the conservative surgery was going to be at least $300 (just for the surgery) and we have no clue if the additional, more invasive surgery will be if needed. So at this time, the goal is open... until we have a better idea of what is needed. We just hope it wasn't too late.

RESCUES: We are seeking a RESCUE for her. All proceeds, less the FundRazr/PayPal fees will be used for the specific pet for required/needed vetting with the remainder forwarded to the approved Rescue that rescues. To claim Sponsorships, please notify NCAF or PAWNC prior to rescue. In most cases, including Independent Rescuers or non-profit groups without their 501c3, funds will go direct to the vet! We appreciate your consideration.

Sponsorships for the Nash County Animal Control Shelter pets are managed by Promoting Animal Welfare in NC (PAWNC), a 501c3 charity, working in partnership with Nash County Animal Friends (NCAF).

DONORS: Your gift is appreciated and is tax deductible. Promoting Animal Welfare in NC is a networking advocacy group and a non-profit corporation with their 501c3 charity status. Thanks for Caring!
