Angel Sponsorship Update - Elvis

By Delayna Myers

Elvis has been in Mickaboo's care for a few years. He was surrendered to Mickaboo because of an infected eye. He now lives with his foster mom, Susie, receiving excellent care and the love that he needs. He continues to have issues with his eye, but a recent (Nov 2021) visit to an animal eye specialist revealed he was suffering from an old and severe eye trauma best treated with anti-inflammatory drops. He was also determined to have only 30% vision in that eye. View in a new window

And if you are anything like my mom, who won't take no for an answer and is obsessed with helping animals in need, then you’d understand why our house sounds like the Amazon Rainforest.
