The Story

Little Eeyore was rescued from a shelter by SPCA of Livingston.  He has been diagnosed with heart disease and will require an open heart valve surgery before he is able to be adopted and find his forever home.  Eeyore is only 5 months old and was an owner surrender in this grave condition.  Our options for Eeyore were weighed and with experienced fosters willing to step up after surgery, we decided we could help! We, at SPCA, saw a future for him and want to do everything we can to give this little guy a shot at the happily ever after he dreams of. His prognosis after surgery is good, so now we need donations to help raise the money needed for his surgery.  Please help us give Eeyore the future he deserves.  SPCA is a 501c3 non-profit agency.

10/9/13:  It is with a very heavy heart that I write this update.  Eeyore had his EKG at LSU this morning.  We made sure to tell the vets that he was unable to stand and was refusing to walk.  We felt this was certainly due to the heart failure he was experiencing.  As the day went on, test after test, we discovered that Eeyore's heart was much worse than anyone imagined.  He had a hole in the septum between the two chambers of his heart.  This would be fixed with a plug, which there was no guarantee would hold in place.  With the knowledge of this weighing on our minds, we continued with x-rays.  What they showed brought us all to tears.  Both of Eeyore's hips were dislocated and broken, as well as a spinal injury and a broken knee.  His chance of survival plummeted as we realized the severe magnitude of his injuries.  He was suffering...and though we prayed and tried...it was time to let him rest.  With two of our officers by his side, we lead him to the rainbow bridge.  Our hearts now too are broken.  Someone said earlier today, "I wish there was a way to help him understand just how many people are good and love him and want him to be happy, loved and healthy".  I can say with certainty, that in his final days he saw all of those things.  I, personally, have been so touched by the support he was given.  Thank you all for your outpouring of love and support.  Forever in our hearts....R.I.P. little Eeyore
