Raine is an older female chihuahua mix who arrived to NJ on May 29th. Unfortunately, we noticed right away that Raine was not feeling well. She was initially seen at RBVH and then examined by a cardiologist. The news isn't very good for our sweet girl. She has severe pulmonary hypertension from advanced heartworm disease and either COPD or Pneumonia. We have started several additional medications in the hopes of getting Raine better but we will have to see how effective these medications are in helping her. Raine needs to go back to the cardiologist at the end of June and re-evaluate her progress.
Based on the diagnosis at this time, we do not believe Raine has much longer to live. We are heartbroken for this sweet girl who had such a tough life. She deserved better than this and we are sad she is saddled with such an awful disease.
From her Louisiana foster mom: This sweet baby so deserves a home and family of her own. She was found freezing and starving on Valentine’s Day all curled up in a little ball under a tree in the middle of the worst ice storm in decades. She had been neglected and not loved or cared for in a very long time. She had all but given up.
Raine is estimated at 10 years old, 10.5 lbs and she's been fixed, microchipped and she is up to date on vaccines. She was treated for heartworm so there are no active worms at this time.
Raine now has a loving fospice home but we could use sponsors to aide in her multiple medications and veterinary needs. Donations can be made using the PayPal link on our website or by mailing a check to WOI, PO Box 221, Oakhurst, NJ 07755.
