Akiva: Our Holiday Pet in Need!
Akiva is a beautiful husky who has waited far too long at the shelter. The reason that she has been passed over for several years now is because of her incontinence. She has a dribble and a leak at times that she can not control. Not her fault.
Akiva has seen specialists and we now have reason to believe that there is a surgery that has a high percentage chance of helping her and resolving her incontinence.
A note from the vet specialist explains it this way: Akiva has urinary incontinence of unknown origin. Most likely, she has urethral sphincter incompetence which may benefit from culposuspension or silicone injections. There is also questionable ureteral ectopia which could be ablated with a diode laser.
We are prepared to send Akiva to the University of Wisconsin. There, they have surgeons who can perform the prescribed surgery and help Akiva today. And Akiva will then be highly adoptable. We just need to raise the funds to cover the cost of a $10,000 procedure.
If you are thinking about making a meaningful holiday donation this year that could absolutely change a life, this just may be it.
Donations can be made securely on line right here, or mailed to the shelter, or in person at the shelter 11am-5pm each day.
Akiva deserves her chance to experience a real life outside of the shelter.
