After Marigold was placed into CAPE’s Assisted Living program, blood work at a vet visit revealed that she has diabetes. In addition to being fully blind and having itchy skin, it was evident that Marigold was quite uncomfortable.
After careful consideration, we started Marigold on costly insulin shots twice a day. Her incredible foster mom has been monitoring her closely.
Marigold had another vet visit a few days ago to have her blood glucose checked. She has gained 1.1 pounds and most of her fur has grown back. The insulin is definitely improving her quality of life.
Thanks to CAPE’s Assisted Living program, Marigold will live free from suffering for the rest of her life. She will have a safe, loving home and all of her care costs covered by CAPE.

This sweet 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 has spent the past year in a Nevada prison getting little to no socialization.
We can only imagine how much stress and trauma he must’ve experienced. He is headed to CAPE’s trusted vet for a full health check and she will work on building trust gently. Once he’s ready, he will be introduced to the rescued herd at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary. CAPE and American Wild Horse Campaign are working hard to ensure that this transition is as easy for him as possible.

CAPE is working with the American Wild Horse Campaign to rescue an older burro who is in a holding pen inside a Nevada prison.
This burro was rounded up by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and pulled away from the family and herd he likely spent over twenty years with. The burro has had very little socialization with humans so he will need time to build trust. He will slowly be integrated into the rescued herd at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary. We are honored to be partnering with AWHC and CAPE’s trusted vet on this rescue mission. Stay tuned as we prepare to bring this burro to his new forever home at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary!

Marigold wandered the streets of Watsonville – lost and alone. She is an old, blind dog who is incredibly sweet. She was taken to the shelter in Santa Cruz, but no one came to look for her. After her stray period was up, the shelter contacted CAPE for help. The veterinarian at the shelter thought Marigold might be a good candidate for CAPE’s Hospice or Assisted Living Program.
Luckily, one of our hospice care volunteers offered to take her in. So transport from Santa Cruz to Grass Valley has been arranged and on Tuesday we are welcoming Marigold to CAPE.
Marigold will settle into her new home for a day or two and then be taken to one of our vets for a complete work up including and exam, bloodwork,
and dental check-up. We will make sure that Marigold is comfy and well cared for throughout her golden years. WE will keep you posted as her
