Chevy is a beautiful blind bulldog who was rescued by Camano Animal Shelter Association (CASA) in Washington State this spring. Thanks to CASA and to those who shared Chevy's story on social media, the dog who was once slated for euthanasia has now found a loving home.
CASA stated on their Facebook page today: "Thank you to everyone who shared Chevy's need! Because of this added exposure, Chevy was adopted and is in an amazing home. Thank you to Chevy's new family - from the bottom of our hearts.
"We also want to thank Dr O'Rourke and his team at the Animal Care Center for providing her amazing care, to her main foster parents Nicole and Daryl, and the countless other volunteers and staff who cared for and transported Chevy to check ups, trails, and the beach! To think Chevy was scheduled for euthanasia in her previous home and is now healthy, happy, and in a home!"
Before CASA stepped in, Chevy's owners had scheduled her for euthanasia because she had severe glaucoma and a skin infection and they could not afford her medical care. Seven-year-old Chevy was suffering with her conditions and her future looked bleak. Fortunately for this loving dog, CASA was there to save her – and despite being in pain from her eye condition, skin condition, and a tumor, Chevy was sweet, loving, and happy to see the CASA rescuers. Dr. O’Rourke removed Chevy’s painful, non-functioning eyes and the tumor that was causing her discomfort, helping this sweet gal have a second chance at a comfortable, happy life.
This gorgeous, kind girl had a rough start, but with your help, she found a loving, devoted family. Would you like to help other animals find their happily ever after?
