Cleopatra needs your HELP !!

It was the last hour of the last day for Cleopatra. The shelter was FULL and Cleopatra is a senior pit mix with a few medical issues. Friends of Wake County Animal Center reached out to see if would be able to help save her life.

We had no where for Cleopatra to go for a week during this holiday time. Fortunately, we were able to reach out to our wonderful network and find a place where Cleopatra could be boarded until a foster home opening after Thanksgiving. Also, a volunteer was willing to transport Cleopatra from the shelter to the boarding home! Thank you !

Finding a place for her to land until a forever home is found was the first priority. The next priority is getting her medical needs met. She has an incontinence issue that may be a kidney infection. She also has mammary tumors. We need to get labwork done to determine what is causing (or not causing) Cleo’s incontinence and if she is healthy enough, we need to get those tumors removed and evaluated to determine if they are cancerous.

The boarding, the medical evaluation, and likely surgery will cost money. I know it’s the time of year where money becomes tight for everyone, especially tight this year with rising prices everywhere. If you can, please donate any amount — it all adds up! If you are not able to donate to help Cleopatra right now, please SHARE this post with your friends and family and ask them to donate if they are able.

Cleopatra is a happy, friendly senior that found herself homeless after her owner passed away. Because she is older, because she is a pit mix, and because she found herself at the shelter during a busy holiday time, she is one of those dogs at high risk for falling through the cracks and not making it out to live the retirement life she deserves. These are the dogs that Marden’s Ark Dog Tales strives to help, if we can. We can only do this with resources – a network of companion animal rescuers, fosters, and funds.
