We are in very urgent need of funds for one of our rescues a loving 2 year old border collie named Choco. This poor guy is completely blind and was dumped out in the country by his owner. Choco is safe now in a loving foster home through our rescue but he is in desperate need of surgery for his painful eye condition. He was evaluated at West Vet in Boise by Dr. Breaux who specializes in opthamology and she determined that he has severe glaucoma in his right eye. The condition is extremely painful for Choco and has caused irreversible blindness. The only solution to alleviate the constant eye pain is to ampuate the eye and place a prosthetic eyeball in the socket to fill the empty space so it won't sink in over time. The prosthetic will not be for cosmetic purposes as the eye will be sewn shut. Choco's other eye also has multiple congenital malformations. The eye doesn't have glaucoma yet and it isn't painful but he is completely blind. Fortunately the doctor does not recommend that we amputate this eye but will instead need to monitor it yearly.

Choco needs this surgery as soon as possible. Wating only means more pain and suffering for him. Every dollar makes a diffference and we would appreciate your support so much! Donations can also be made directly to West Vet in Boise at (208) 375-1600 under the account Friends of Burley Shelter Animals for Choco. Thank you so much!! 

*If any donations are made that exceed the expense of Choco's surgery they will be applied to another rescue in need!*
