Update - March 29: The day has finally arrived. Miata will soon be able to go to her new home. Thanks to her awesome Foster Mom who has stuck with her through thick and thin over the past few months. Below is the latest from Miata's Foster Mom. Please consider adopting this wonderful dog.
Miata here -- pictures are worth a thousand words.
Update: Miata here – I know that you’ve been wondering what is going on. I am so fortunate to announce that I have undergone my first surgery and I’m recuperating with my awesome Foster Mom and my little four-legged foster sister. Animatch felt that I deserved some one-on-one attention through the surgeries and during my recovery. They chose well.
Would you believe that I am also seeing Alain Girouard, a massage therapist, who has very kindly offered to accompany me throughout my recovery from this operation and all the way through the second operation (left leg). I so appreciate the donation of his time and energy to my healing. There are truly some Angels in this world.
Because I am only 2.5 years old, a full recovery is expected and my joints/ligaments will be stronger than ever. My Foster Mom will be taking me to laser therapy twice a week to speed up the healing process. I am overwhelmed at the outpouring of care and concern for me. I lived in pain for far too long.
Of course, we still need to raise funds to get me through the second surgery which is scheduled for the end of December/beginning of January. It takes a village to help a dog like me. Animatch, my foster Mom, and all who have donated have gotten me this far. We are counting on our amazing supporters to get me through the rest. Any donation big or small is appreciated.
Meet Miata, a shiny Labrador Retriever mix who was injured in February and will finally be getting some relief from her pain. She was dropped off at the SPA Mauricie with a torn cruciate ligament. The only thing that would make life just a little better for him at this point is a forever family!
Miata will undergo TPLO surgery in the next few days and what better place to recover than in the comfort of her new home. There is just no way that Animatch could turn our backs on Miata and leave her in pain. Please be aware that you cannot expect to go through a dog’s entire life without having some unforeseen veterinary expense. Consider yourself lucky if you don’t but you must always be prepared. No dog deserves to be left in pain.
After her surgery, she will need to have limited exercise for a few weeks but we are hoping that she will make a complete recovery. Miata is truly best friend material; she gets along well with everyone she meets. Although she is good with other dogs, at this time we are trying to limit her activity.
An update will follow on Miata after her surgery. In the meantime, if you think that you can offer her the home she so deserves, fill in the Application Form.
Please note that due the volume of applications, we are unable to respond to all applicants and ONLY those being considered will be contacted. We thank you for your understanding. The adoption application link is posted below and the adoption process is outlined on the website. Animatch asks that you read the Adoptee’s bio in its entirety before applying to ensure you meet the requirements for the dog.
