We don’t know what…


We don't know what Estela's life held before her, but we do know that in the few months we had her, she lived a good one. Her days were spent lounging, being snuggled, and ruling the roost. We get this question sometimes, why do we spend money trying to help an older dog, why do we even bother taking them into the rescue? Why not? Why would a senior citizen be any less deserving of love, compassion and medical care? Why should we not give them a fighting chance like we would any other dog? We tried furiously for Estela. We hooked her up to IV fluids and oxygen, ran every test the vets could think of, just hoping maybe we could figure out what was wrong and fix it. And sadly, we lost. We could not figure out what was wrong. No test gave us even the slightest crumb of information. Meanwhile, Estela continued to seize. Sedatives were the only thing that kept her sort of still. Her heart stopped beating anytime the machines were turned off. Out of answers and out of options, Estela passed away quietly in her sweet foster's arms. We are devastated. She didn't deserve such a jarring end. 💔 We still need donations to cover the cost of sweet Estella's vet care for last night.
