Hank is 11 years old and has cancer. He was brought to the shelter where he became increasingly upset and agitated. The shelter was a very scary place for Hank - loud noises, unfamiliar smells, caring strangers going in and out of his kennel trying to figure out what to do to help him. Lots of people were advocating to save him, but the tumor on his side, infected ears, and unsettled behavior made adoption possibilities remote.
When the shelter contacted us, we flew into action. CAPE's Animal Medical Fund enables us to help animals like Hank who have very few options. The shelter veterinarians were able to remove the mass on his side and CAPE took over from there.
Hank went into a wonderful CAPE foster home last week and we are waiting, holding our breath, for the pathology report to inform us what kind of cancer he had. Please keep your fingers crossed that it's benign!
Hank went to the vet on Wednesday and we took care of the ear infections. As you can see, Hank is pretty comfy in his foster home - and now we wait. We will keep you posted about the pathology report and Hank will probably be available for adoption once we make sure he is all tuned up!
Thank you so much for giving to CAPE's Animal Medical Fund so we can continue saving lives - lives like Hank's! www.capeanimals.org/animal-medical-fund
