This sleek, black beauty could barely see the bright color of her blanket because of the advanced cataracts in her young eyes. What Lulu needed was an expensive surgery that Nancy, her loving owner could scarcely afford. Not only was she working full time, but she was also pursuing a nursing degree. In spite of this, she spent the next several months exploring every avenue open to her. She applied for grants, emailed foundations and shelters across the county, attended fundraisers, and established a gofundme account on her Facebook page, all in a desperate attempt to raise the thousands of dollars she needed to save her precious dog’s sight. We approved a grant to help towards Lulu’s cataract surgery and were pleased to learn that the operation was performed successfully. We are happy to say that Lulu is seeing bright colors again!
