My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for RedRover, Sacramento, CA, USA
This past Christmas of 2012 we decided to add to our family by granting our 11 yr. old daughter a wish of getting the ever-so special gift of a puppy. What 11 yr old kid wouldnt wish for that? So instead of spending what little we had on some kind of new electronic gaming device we decided that a puppy would be the pick. Sure enough we went through all of the motions of finding that perfect little fur ball. This is when we met Echo. We picked him out of a litter of Siberian Huskies in which all of the colors you could imagine. The reason we picked him was because he was a very light shade of blondish red and that he was lying on his back with his feet in the air unlike all of his upright sitting dark red or black sibs. Eyes still shut and all looking very cute. Soon after a few weeks we were able to see that his eyes were open and very very blue. This is something we did not even expect, blue! 2 Days before Christmas we drove 5 hours away to pick him up and was not impressed by the situation we saw. I will not go into detail but we expected a little better of conditions, still we grabbed up our Echo and left knowing that he would atleast have a better place than where he began. We celebrated our Christmas around the tree and our daughter was elated. Things were just fine but two days after the holiday Echo began to act strange. He slept alot, whinned, and didnt act very happy. Soon, we noticed that he was favoring his left eye. Long story made short, all within the time we noticed something "off" and 24 hours later, Echo was blind in his left eye with the diagnoses of Glaucoma. To our horrors, a couple of weeks later, his right eye did the same. This confirmed that it was a born with disease. It was a hard couple of weeks trying to figure out the best route to go with Echo whom was generally in pain quite often even with the prescription eyedrops. This is a terrible sentence to be given to anyone or any creature. Glaucoma is very painful and we can see it in Echos face everyday. He will only be 4 months old this coming month and was diagnosed with glaucoma at 3 months. He went blind all within that month and that is a horrible thing to witness. Happy playful little furball chasing the kitty around the living room to little suffering furball who cannot see and is bumping into walls. Not only is this sad but it going to be financially draining on our little family. We did not expect this to happen, nor did we plan for something like this to happen so we never saved money for something like this.
I was surfing the web about Glaucoma when I came upon a website called "Red Rover" and decided to ask for help because without someones help, Echo would never be able to get the surgery that he needs to relieve the Glaucoma. With the help of Red Rover, Laurel and a very very angelic person whom remains anonymous to me, Echo will now get the relief he is yearning for. These folks that have come forward to do such heartwarming caring and kind favors deserve a special reward and I wish I had something to give. The only thing I can give is my special Thankyou. Thankyou for your help. Thankyou for your devotion to animals. Thankyou for your kind hand in helping this sweet little husky puppy live the rest of his life atleast not in pain. There is never enough words to say. It warms my heart to know there are such wonderful people in this world and you know who you are. Thankyou again.
