Sapphire is having a bad day again today: slowing down and just not feeling well...
Six days to surgery and better days though! Thank you all for saving her - we're almost there and could not have done this without your support.

We were happy to help get these babies to Angels of Animals, a rescue with experience with special needs. Since we are financially restricted, it's the least we could do by transporting them half way from the shelter to a rescue volunteer.
Best of luck, babies! You are in great hands. Like their page and follow their journey here: Angels of Animals, Inc

On the celebration of Cordi's life (our now adopted girl turns 3 years old today which is pretty awesome for a puppy we were told wouldn't see her first birthday!), Joa's Arc is now asking for assistance in another life saving procedure ... this time for Sapphire.
When Joa's Arc intook Sapphire, we thought she had an inflamed back end from a maggot infestation on a prolapsed rectum - gross, but a somewhat simple fix. Then, we realized Sapphire was getting impacted with stool. With what seemed like more bad days than good, we went for a second opinion, which lead to an appointment with a specialist at NorthStar VETS We know now that Sapphire actually has a very rare congenital condition - Atresia Ani. She is unable to pass stool through her rectum. Instead, there is a very small hole (about the size of a pore_ directly below her rectum that expels her stool only when her colon becomes completely full, which is every 4 to 5 days...
We can only imagine how uncomfortable it must be for Sapphire. On her bad days, she is lethargic and listless. NorthStar surgeon Dr. M. Joy Weinstein will perform an anoplasty, a life saving surgery, on August 25th on Sapphire. This surgery will connect her colon to her rectum and create an anal opening. This is an extensive surgery, but it is also her only hope at life and we're hoping you can help us raise the funds for Sapphire.

At the very least, please share this photo of Sapphire

Recovery And Transformation

Today she is at the vet having blood drawn. She also lost a nail while having a seizure. After her test results come back, we will start her on Keppra to see if this controls the seizures.
Her care has cost over $800, which was unexpected. We strive to get our special ones the best care possible and pray this works for her. Please keep her in your thoughts & prayers, friends.
