NEW! Bogie Update

 

August 24th update!

Bogie is thriving with his new foster family! He is always happy and is having a lot of fun, attention and adventure. Bogie’s foster mom has brought him to two meet & greets and he is getting used to wearing his “wheels” again – ironically, he can move around faster without them. Here is some more good news—Bogie has had negative urine cultures, so we are going to proceed with his Cystotomy procedure. This is going to help him and his foster family take care of his bladder needs, and it will reduce and/or eliminate his UTI recurrences. Bogie’s surgery will take place within the next week, stay tuned for more updates about his recovery and continued progress.

Thank you to everyone for your amazing support of Bogie!

Bogie was safely transported from the vet’s office to a new foster home last week! He is currently living with a local vet and his wife, hanging out at the office during the day and spending nights and weekends with a real family. Bogie as usual has endeared himself to his foster parents, their resident pets, and all of the staff at the office. Once his infection has completely cleared, he’ll be a candidate for a minor surgery that will make it easier to empty his bladder.

We can’t thank everyone enough for your kind words, foster leads, and taking the time to help GRRIN with outreach.

And we also want to thank the generous donors who have helped us with Bogie’s veterinary expenses. We had an anonymous donor give quite generously to Bogie’s care at VCA. In addition, Woof & Whiskers made a donation and held a fundraiser for Bogie. The Bogie’s Bones campaign raised $750 by selling personalized dog treats to over 140 community members! THANK YOU!
