Help support Veda!

Our friends at SNORT (Short Noses Only Rescue Team) in Buffalo, New York, have a really special girl they’d like to introduce you to.

From their website:

We aren’t sure exactly how old Veda is, but she is guessed to only be about 1 year old.  Poor Veda has one very upset tummy, and after being advertised in the classifieds twice, she couldn’t be happier or luckier to have landed in her loving foster mom’s hands!  Veda suffered rectal prolapse and received surgery to attempt to repair it.  Unfortunately, the surgery was not completely successful and Veda now has fecal incontinence.  To top it all off, she has a very upset tummy that could possibly be IBD.  Veda is very thin and understandably so–she has been sick for quite a long time.

Friday’s report back? “He tastes like chicken – and dog spit”.

Yet, behind the scores of rosettes proudly hung around their terraced home, their beloved pets were living in unimaginable squalor.
