Check in on Our Special Fosters

Angel (#1210) - is our current special foster.  She came to us in June of 2017 when her owners dropped her at a shelter - saying they were moving and couldn't take her.  They said she was 16, but our vet disagreed and said Angel is about 9 years old.

Angel has several medical issues.  Her kidneys function poorly, and don't stimulate the production of red blood cells properly - causing severe anemia.  Fortunately there is medicine - given in weekly injections - that replaces that function for the kidneys.  Angel also had a bad yeast infection, which has been treated with medicated baths and anti-fungal medication.

Angel's health is improving and she is gaining weight - but she will need to be on her medication for the rest of her life.  Go to our Special Fosters page to see the rest of her story.  We have listed her medical costs here.

Medication costs - Epogen - $121 every other month.  2 vials are ordered at a time.  Since the medicine has to be keep cold, the overnight shipping cost is included in the bill.

Needles / Syringes  $7 / month

Complete bloodwork quarterly - $140

Vet visit/checkup quarterly - $45

CBC recheck (if Epogen dose increased) $46 - this has happened once in the 8 months Angel has been in research.

Medicated shampoo - $28.95 for 16 ounces.  Since the yeast is now cleared up, this lasts 2-3 months.
