ADI, OUR FIRST & REASON OF PP START UP - SHE IS OUR ANGEL!

The runt of his litter, Adicus was born in November 2011 and went  home with his furever family in January 2012. Almost immediately, subtle  signs of impaired vision could be noticed—not the least of them, a blue  glint in his eyes that would grow to be a feature characteristic. Over  the years, symptoms of deteriorating vision progressed enough to  properly diagnose core issues in Adi’s corneas in July 2016. Adi’s  family immediately appealed to the Instagram community for help,  encouraged that with the right diagnosis, they might be able to help  their beloved paw pal see better for the rest of his life. Through  Instagram, @adiblueeyes found friends and family the world over who  rallied to help him see again, and he underwent surgery in May 2017.  While cataracts and opacity are still present in his eyes, Adi is seeing  better than he ever has. His newfound community was (and is)  instrumental in Adi’s journey to seeing again, and preserving this new  gift of sharpened sight for the long haul.
Now five months after a bilateral keratectomy and removal of a benign mass in his left eye, Adi is adjusting to a life of clearer sight. He still has some corneal opacity, but is much more adventurous and explores his beloved outdoors with more tenacity and agility. He is able to play with his brother and meet new human and fur friends without being quite so intimidated, now that he can see better—in fact, we have to keep our eyes on him now that he is more comfortable taking more risks! Our precious boy turns six next month and we are so grateful for his new lease on life and for Paw Philanthropy’s support to help Adi see.

  Stella is an 8-year old Boston Terrier adopted by her parents 2 years ago, having lived in 4 different homes. She was skittish, suffering from allergies and her skin was raw, itchy and bleeding. Her family love and dedication helped her gain confidence, becoming not only a loyal companion to her new family but she went on to welcome, mother, guide and love many other fosters that have passed though her home. Unfortunately, Stella is suffering from herniation of the discs between her 2nd and 3rd vertebrae which are compressing her spinal cord, causing weakness of all 4 limbs and neck pain. her best chance for recovery is surgery.

Quill is the sweetest southern lady. She is a five year old cattle dog beagle mix. She loves running in the woods chasing squirrels and bears, but it lead to an unfortunate injury. She tore the meniscus in her back legs. She will need surgery on each leg (one at a time) to repair the torn meniscus. After surgery and rehab, she is expected to return to being carefree and having fun roaming around her home with her dog sister Piper.
