Zina's eyes are like nothing we've ever seen.
Every blink, every movement of her eyes, brings pain and irritation. Her inner eyelids are adhered to her eyes, causing not only discomfort but making it impossible for her to see clearly. She also has other severe deformities of her eyes and lids, including long tufts of fur jutting out where they should not be.
She is so young just 6 months old and she’s been suffering for most, if not all, of her life.
We made a promise to Zina the day she arrived at the Animal Rescue League that we would do everything in our power to help her, no matter what it took.
We immediately started her on medications to fight infection and keep her eyes as healthy and comfortable as possible as we worked to correct the problems. She needed initial intricate surgeries to relieve her discomfort and improve her vision, and we have taken care of that, but now Zina needs a specialist.
And she needs you now, more than ever.
You can be a hero to Zina and pets like her today with your monthly gift to our Miracle Medical Fund.
Pets like Zina come to us every day suffering from pain and discomfort they don’t understand and needing weeks, if not months, of veterinary care to change their lives for the better.
We don’t know how many more surgeries Zina will need or how long she will be with us. She’s a special girl who will always look a little different, but with your help, we can help her feel “normal” and give her a better life … the life she has always deserved.
In these uncertain times, the certainty of your monthly gift will help us continue to be there for pets in need, like Zina, for as long as they need, whether it be weeks or months or longer.
