CWS Medical Cases
Donate. Sponsor. Advocate.
CWS has started a Sponsorship Program to help the rescuers cover the costs of the dogs who require medical care. The pups below range in needs from antibiotics for infections, to surgeries, to help them live their lives free of physical pain. The past few years have been a struggle just to feed the dogs, however the sad reality is that some cases will deteriorate if we do not take action NOW while time is still on their side.
We currently have 8 dogs who need pressing medical attention and we cannot do it without your help!
If you would still like to help the dogs but cannot afford to help cover a medical case you can always head to our Sponsorship Page where you can find all of the other ways you can help them out too!
We have done our best to describe the medical issues
In need of Sponsor
needs: $1000 USD for treatment, checkups, neutering, teeth cleaning and surgery
Prince was shot in the head and caused him the loss of sight in his right eye. Whereas, he has limited sight in his left one. He needs to have it constantly checked and monitored, because he may need to undergo Enucleation if it gets inflamed and starts to cause him pain.
Needs: $2200 USD for surgery, post treatment and checkups
2 - Metal Plate Removal from previous surgery
Massa was found with her ears cut off + a broken leg. She underwent reconstructive surgery two years ago. At her recent vet visit she had X-rays taken and they showed an inflammation in her knee so she will need to undergo a TPLO and will also have to have the metal plate from her old surgery removed.
Roosevelt had his 1st surgery 14.02.2023
Needed: 3 major surgeries, post treatment + checkups
1st surgery: USD2000
- Left side: TTT, Sulcoplasty, Capsulorrhaphy & DFO + Physio sessions
- Right side: TTT, Sulcoplasty, Capsulorrhaphy & imbrication Suture
2nd & 3rd Surgery: Not NEEDED anymore
2nd surgery - Neutering & Metal removing: USD400 - scheduled 21st feb 24
After three years and a half at the shelter, during which we thought Roose was sterilised, we started noticing behaviours related to unsterilised male dog. After thorough check up & ultrasound, it turns out that both his testicles are still intact in his stomach, that's why during previous exams he was thought to be fixed already.
Needs: $700 for surgery, meds & checkups
Ronald seemed to have inherited the same medical condition that his mom had. He was born at the shelter with his siblings and his brother Elton just went through the same surgery and is healing well in his foster home. We hope the same can be done for Ronald soon.
1st Operation done
Reconstructive 2nd surgery after a month
Ringo had his surgery on 08.11.2023
Needs: $650 + 400 USD for both surgeries, meds and checkup
-2- Teeth Cleaning *can be sponsored separately from surgery* PENDING - $250
Ringo has been limping recently, so we took him to the vet to make sure everything was okay. Unfortunately, the x-rays showed that he is suffering from Patella Luxation. While he was there the vet also recommended teeth cleaning to prevent gum infection.
