Roscoe was brought to the vet with serious medical issues that his owners could not afford to treat financially and were not emotionally prepared to handle longterm. Roscoe was diagnosed with uncontrolled diabetes and he had developed ketones (a side effect of untreated diabetes that causes significant issues). The vet staff swung into immediate action knowing that Roscoe's issues were treatable and hoping that there would be someone out there prepared to handle continued insulin injections for Roscoe to give him his golden years! Roscoe is only 11 years old (not all that old for a dachshund) and has no other underlying health issues so with treatment, he has a great future ahead.

Rescue did not really have room available having recently made commitment to take in 2 other fosters in need -- but in these kinds of situations Roscoe's foster mom generally likes to leap on faith knowing that she can fundraise and find room in her home to squeeze one more in! It was literally life or death for this sweet boy this morning (if rescue had not been able to step up then Roscoe was going to have to be put to sleep) -- and we decided to give him a fighting chance! Now we need help raising the funds for his care and spreading word to find an adopter familiar (or just prepared) to handle daily insulin injections to keep him healthy. His initial treatment was covered by the caring vet tech who helped get him into rescue -- but he is still in the hospital getting his diabetes regulated! Soon he will be ready to come to his foster home where he will continue to get his injections until an adoptive home can hopefully be found prepared to handle his continued health needs in his golden years! Please help us raise the funds to care for his diabetes!
