Kona Kai was found when a truck drove by a shelter volunteer and threw a dog out onto the road. The dog stumbled around looking lost and disoriented, with wounds all over his body, obviously having been severely beaten. But much worse, he was BLIND! Both eyes had ruptured and were covered with puss. While treating this poor guy's wounds, the vet discovered that his wounds appeared to have been made with a large, sharp object. Because the eyes had sealed over and not drained out, they started him on several medications to reduce the amount of infection. The plan was to stabilize him before doing the surgery to remove the damaged eyes. However, dedicated volunteers spent hours every day applying various drops, giving oral medications and creating a dark pen where Kona Kai could heal. Several trips to different veterinarians resulted in a small miracle. Although he will always be blind, it looks like Kona Kai will not lose his eyes! He still needs much more treatment, but soon  we hope he will be healed and ready to start the next chapter in his life. 

So far, Cinderella Pet Rescue has spent over $1,000 dollars nursing Kona Kia back to health, but more treatments are needed, with an expected final cost exceeing $1,500.  Being a 100% volunteer organization, Cinderella is dependent upon donations to pay for this kind of care.  Please help us continue to give Kona Kai all the help he so richly deserves

Even once he is fully healed, Kona Kai will still have a long road ahead of him. Learning to function as ablind dog won’t be easy. He will need a lot of support and some special tools to make the transition into a functional dog a reality. If he is lucky he could end up with a canine buddy who can help him maneuver the world. More importantly, we really hope he will have someone to love him and give him the positive attention he craves and deserves - Someone who will make his journey a safe and happy one.
