HELP MOKEY WITH THE GIFT OF SIGHT
LET'S GET MOKEY HERE SIGHT BACK!
Life has not been kind to Mokey but we plan on changing that. Please help us help her see again!
We, Cubby’s Crusade Dog Rescue, rescued Mokey a little over 2 months ago and we can’t imagine the trauma that she had endured before she ended up with us. Not only the terror of living on the streets completely blind, starving, and suffering from a horrible skin condition which resulted in hair loss and red swollen sores over 80% of her frail body. But also ending up in a loud scary high kill shelter (75% euth rate) with gates slamming, dogs barking, and random people trying to handle her all while in complete darkness with no visual awareness of what is going on. The fear and anxiety she must have felt is unthinkable.
Despite going through all of that she still has the most determined spirit. She really loves life and is such a sweet soul. Mokey just wants to be like the other dogs and there are moments where she tries to play but then reality of her being blind sets in and her fear of the unknown halt her in her tracks. It’s truly heartbreaking to watch. She is a social butterfly at heart but because of her lack of sight she is trapped. When out of her safe place, her foster home, Mokey becomes easily startled and will start barking and biting the air just from everyday sounds. Her blindness really affects her and Mokey can go from happy, loving, and wanting to play to frozen in fear in no time.
So the ultimate conclusion is: Mokey being 5 years young, in good health and now on the path to a brighter future, giving her the gift of eyesight is something we are committed to.
We know that sight is priceless but the cost of Mokey’s surgery is pricey!
Mokey has seen 2 different eye specialists and after doing all of the appropriate testing (I.e. electroretinogram, ocular ultrasound scan, pressure test, and blood test) they have deemed her an excellent candidate for cataract surgery in both eyes. This is amazing news and we are so excited at the possibility of Mokey being able to see again. However the surgery is not cheap. The estimates range from $4562.12 to $5973.13. Since both specialists come highly recommended, and we are a small struggling non profit that runs solely on donations, we will be going with the lower one that is 1 1/2 hr drive away.
We we are hoping to raise these funds as soon as possible as she needs this operation urgently to prevent the situation from worsening. A common complication with cataracts is the onset of glaucoma as well as detached retinas which would make her ineligible for the surgery and never be able to see again.
Every donation, big or small, gets Mokey that much closer to being able to see the world around her. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AND GENEROSITY!
