POOR PENNY was found left tied up alone and in need of emergency medical care
Penny was found at the start of December 2020 all alone tied up and abandoned at a train station. For any dog this would be traumatising but for poor Penny – who was clearly suffering from problems with her eyes and an ear infection – we can only imagine how terrified she must have been.
After further vet examinations, it became apparent that Penny had been suffering with Glaucoma for some time. Penny was closely monitored and the vets tried as hard as they could to save her eyesight. Unfortunately there wasn’t anything they could do so they decided removal was the best option. She started adapting to her new way of life so quickly – no more suffering!
From the day Penny was rescued she’s been happy, bright and always wagging her tail. She never seemed distressed staying in the kennels with the vet whilst undergoing treatment and would get very excited with a nurse or vet coming in to check on her.
Penny is now in a wonderful foster home local to the centre – with our support, her new foster family will help her recover from her major surgery and adjust to life with no sight.
We help hundreds of animals every year and each animal receives a health check, flea/worm/tick treatment, vaccinations, neutering and micro-chipping if needed.
Many animals, like Penny need further treatment which is vital to their health.
Our veterinary costs throughout 2020 were around £70,000 and we rely entirely on donations from our shops and donations to pay these essential costs.
