Sweet little Nanook came to our attention on November 17th 2016, we were contacted by the staff at East Valley Shelter asking for our help. We were informed that she had been surrendered to the shelter and was blind. Untreated glaucoma had left her with bulbous and painful eyeballs and she was blind and in pain. Shelter staff knew that little Nanook needed immediate treatment and a knowledgable and caring place to recover. We, of course, said we would take her.
When the pressure builds up in the eyes so much that it causes them to bulge there is no other option but to remove the eyes and therefore remove the pressure. We agreed to bring Nanook into rescue and arranged for her to go straight to our vet so a treatment plan could begin immediately. Surgery date set for November 22nd and she will recuperate in a loving foster home.
One of the first things that we do when we rescue a husky from the shelter is to change their name. We believe that by changing their name it signals a new beginning and a new start at a better life. Nanook is now called Mo and is safe with us. We will update when she is out of surgery.
1st December 2016: Mo’s Surgery went well and she is recuperating in foster care until she is medically cleared for adoption. She is very affectionate and just wants to cuddle.
22nd December 2016: Mo is now ready for adoption.
January 28th 2017. Mo found the perfect family and was adopted. Sh is now living the dream in Washington. We love you MO.
