Izzy arrived at the shelter as a stray with mats, burs, missing hair, and irritated skin. Her vet exam determined that she was underweight, had cataracts, a sizeable under bite, and a significant heart murmur. In a nutshell, Izzy was in need of some major veterinary care.Once CAPE was contacted, we flew into high gear and placed Izzy in one of our amazing foster homes.
Izzy is approximately 12 years old. She met her four-legged foster family, including the resident cat, and did great. She had a much-needed bath and groom and she is already feeling so much better. Izzy also got a full vet workup, including bloodwork and urinalysis. The good news is she is quite healthy! Our biggest hurdle will be keeping an eye on Izzy’s heart murmur and managing her allergies. Already, her hair is starting to grow back and Izzy is adjusting to her new, pampered lifestyle. We will keep you posted on her progress.

❤️Day 7 of CAPE’s Celebrate Senior Animals Week!!🐴This sweet 22 year old man has been through a lot. He once roamed free on public land, but he was rounded up by the BLM and separated from his family. He spent eight months in a holding pen in a Nevada prison getting little to no socialization.
We can only imagine how much stress and trauma he must’ve experienced. After rescuing Papa Antonio, in collaboration with American Wild Horse Campaign, he stayed with CAPE’s trusted vet for four weeks. She worked on building trust gently, which was challenging at first because he did NOT want to be touched. After spending time learning trust and getting a full health check, Papa came to live at his forever home at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary.
The CAPE staff have been working daily to gain his trust and get him comfortable. After a month of working on this, Papa will now come right up to the staff for scratches and love. He follows us as we walk around the pasture and he he loves a snuggle from CAPE’s Animal Care Director, Jackie.
Papa has been introduced to the rescued herd slowly and we will show you a little later today how well it’s been going! Want to learn more about Papa Antonio? Please visit www.capeanimals.org/burros.html
