At least that is what we thought.
A visit to the vet discovered that Ripley had a mass that was impinging her left shoulder, which was causing lameness. The mass was firm but movable and was diagnosed as Liposarcoma, which are malignant tumors of the fatty tissue. An exam of a chest X-Ray and ultrasound did not show any sign of cancer but the mass still needed to be removed right away. So, that is what we did. Sedona got Ripley the care she not only needed, but the care she deserved and she now is resting comfortably with her foster family.
Thanks to a partial grant we were able to provide her surgery. However, we still need to raise an additional $1,800 to cover her surgery and care. Please help us continue Ripley’s journey to her forever home by donating towards her surgery.
