Ducky

This is sweet little Ducky. Ducky is a 1 year-old Border Collie/Terrier mix and weighs a mere 19lbs. He is super sweet and a very playful puppy.

Unfortunately, he has had to overcome some significant health-related challenges with more to come. When he first came to us, he was having trouble keeping his food down. We were told that it was believed that the condition was stress related and would clear up. When we had him examined by our veterinarian, we found that he had a life-threatening condition known as Persistent Right Aortic Arch (PRRA). PRAA is a congenital anomaly of the blood vessels of the heart that results in constriction of the esophagus. It had constricted his esophagus to the point where he essentially was unable to swallow food. We immediately scheduled him for surgery and the surgeon successfully corrected the PRRA and removed the constriction. Unfortunately, the long-term constriction caused the esophagus to balloon out so he still requires special care with his feeding. He is currently on a food regimen that requires it all to be blended to a milkshake consistency so that it can safely move through the esophagus without coming back up.

The second problem is that he has a significant disability with his back legs. At some point in his young life, both of his kneecaps were dislocated and shifted to the inside part of his legs. This condition was unfortunately not corrected at the time it happened so his leg muscles, ligaments and tendons all grew to accommodate the situation. The result is that his legs are tucked beneath him and he is unable to straighten them out, causing him limited mobility and difficulty moving over things like steps.

We are current seeking donations to help fund his surgery to repair his kneecaps and provide the therapy needed to get is legs working properly.

In spite of all of his disabilities, he persists and acts just like any other happy puppy.

If you are interested in helping us with Ducky and other pets like Ducky, cared for by the Evergreen Animal Protective League, please donate what you can.


Neko

Meet Neko, she is a 6-mo old paralyzed kitten. Neko has complete hind-end paralysis due to a severe spinal cord trauma, the cause of which is unknown. She cannot use her rear legs and she has no control of her bladder or bowels. In spite of these challenges, Neko is otherwise healthy and she is very active and playful.

Neko, like so many of our special needs pets, has long list of monthly needs, and the costs asociated with them, to help her with her disability. She is undergoing water therapy and physical therapy in order to help her strengthen her legs. She also has regular daily needs such as pads, cleaners, body cleaning products and the list goes on. We are seeking all the assistance we can get to continue to help Neko and all of our other pets. Can you help us cover some of the costs of her care by donating?

EAPL is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to providing aid to lost, abandoned, and suffering animals through rescue, shelter, and education. Since our inception in April, 1981, we have provided a better life for thousands of animals.

We have no paid employees and are not supported by taxes. Most animals in our care live in foster homes until adopted. We must raise funds to operate, and we depend on the generosity of our community for support.

You can help the EAPL by visiting our Donations page. Please Donate Now!

Our primary needs are phone volunteers, foster homes, cat room volunteers, and financial contributions. Please contact us if you can help!

There are many cats, kittens, dogs, and other animals waiting to be adopted today. You can read all about their stories and see their pictures on the Cats & Kittens Available, Dogs Available, and Other Animals pages in this web site. Our main goal is to find loving, safe homes for these pets. Why not adopt a loyal companion today?!

Are you interested in volunteering as a foster home? Fostering for the Evergreen League can be a fun and rewarding experience. Foster homes are truly a necessity for the Evergreen League.
