A man has been homeless for the past 10 years. He is currently in a shelter, disabled and pending disability. At this time, he is receiving food stamps. He reached out to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for his male 3-month-old old French Bulldog named Blue. Blue was bleeding from his bottom when he would have a bowel movement.He shared he adopted Blue a few weeks ago from a shelter. At the time of adoption, the owner was told that the dog had a prolapsed rectum that was stitched and would not need surgery or further care on it. However, when Blue’s owner called the rescue to try and speak with a tech or someone that might know the situation, he was told that there was nothing they could assist with. Feeding Pets of the Homeless completed an intake when he called and homeless verification was provided. Our case manager found a partner veterinary hospital where we approved an exam. After being seen by the veterinarian, it was determined that Blue needs surgery to repair the prolapsed rectum. Blue will need to wait about 2 weeks for surgery to clear up an infection first.Feeding Pets of the Homeless contributed $330 for his initial exam, medications, fluids and fecal test.$1,600 has been approved for his surgery in 2 weeks. We would like to wish Blue a speedy recovery. ... See MoreSee Less
