Coffee

Happy Ending for Coffee!
Coffee is simply delicious. This quiet little girl, was surrendered to a shelter in New York. Her thick red coat was so badly matted, it had to be shave right to her skin. Coffee made herself sick with stress in the shelter so staff worked hard to get her safely into rescue. Here, we quickly noticed her scratching excessively and took her to the vet. Coffee was prescribed antibiotics, anti-itch meds., medicated baths, wipes and a diet change. Weeks later, at the end of her drugs, baths and grooms, she was still itchy. The vet rechecked and decided it was possibly simply a habit. Meanwhile, an approved applicant expressed enthusiastic interest and was set to pick her up. Before she left, we noticed an occasional limp when she got up, so back to the vet she went. X-rays revealed she suffers with hip dyspepsia. More meds. Supplements, and lifestyle change were in order. Her adoption was immediately put on hold. After speaking with other vets, the out pour of our Facebook followers and much research, we better understood what support she needed. The waiting applicant wasn’t deterred by Coffee’s condition, and discussed a plan on how to help her baby enjoy a positive future. Mom was anxious to get her home and settled. For the first time possibly ever, Coffee won’t have to share her toys or bed, everything is new, pretty and hers! She will be regularly groomed, vetted and walked….a new way of life and so deserving. Best of all, Coffee will have all Mom’s love and attention, and Mom will definitely have hers! Congratulations Coffee & Mom!
