Meet Lola... an all too familiar case in animal rescue. Surrendered to a shelter by owners who didn't want her anymore. A medical mess who suffers from cataracts, bad skin, and a luxating patella. The Lolas of the world are too frequently overlooked in shelters because of the challenges and expenses a new owner faces. The Lolas of the world are why Carolina Poodle Rescue exists.
Lola is a little lap dog who is a real low energy bundle of joy! While she doesn't do a whole lot, she sure does love some snacks and to be loved on. She kinda sleeps the days away, but that's okay because she is awake when she likes to be. Lola loves attention but doesn't always need it. She really likes to be held up to your chest to be loved on from time to time as well!
Our first priority with Lola is tibial surgery. Luxating Patella is a condition in which the kneecap dislocates or moves out of its normal location. It is all too common in small breed dogs. Caught early enough, it can be repaired with tibial surgery. Lola is one of the lucky ones. Though walking can be difficult for her today, we can fix this. Lola is a great candidate for tibial surgery to repair her luxating patella. And I want to make this happen for her!
On May 19th, Deanna and I will be running to raise funds for Luna's Legacy Medical Fund. Deanna is a "shedding variety poodle" (aka Hound) who has called Carolina Poodle Rescue home since following one of our caregivers to work as a puppy. Deanna is running to raise money for her friends like Lola that aren't able to run and need medical care. She and I are running to ensure that Carolina Poodle Rescue never has to say no to a medical need for one of our dogs.
