Update on Athena Who’s Hoping to See Again

IMG_6922Remember my story “Not just a number to us” from November 2015? It’s me, Athena, back with an update on how I’m doing.

Nobody is interested in adopting me because of my cataracts. By golly, I’m only four years old! I think it’s silly, because I find my way around fine on walks and jumping up onto my foster mom’s bed.

Lucky for me, my angels at Second Chance Cocker Rescue are trying real hard to fundraise, so I will be able to see again. I met with a really nice vet named Dr. Michael Chang at VCA West Los Angeles last week to see if I’m a candidate for cataract surgery.

I was a really good girl. I made it easy for the doctor to look into my eyes. He really liked me a lot! I also had two fancy procedures called an electroretinogram
and an ultrasound, which looked even deeper into my eyes. The good news: Dr. Chang said I’m a great candidate for cataract surgery in both eyes. The bad news: I was told by my foster mom, it’s an expensive procedure, about $5,000. 13138862_10154353602828273_2379244130057433606_n

If any of you out there can help and donate to my cause, it will make me wag my wigglebutt so much! And I’m ready to meet my family,  jump on your laps, sleep in your bed and be your forever girl.  I can’t wait to meet AND see you!

Love,

Athena

  1. How close are you $-wise to her having her procedure?

  2. I don’t know much about your rescue. How far away will you go for adoptions
