ADOPTED! May 9, 2015
We are going The Extra Mile for Sultan.
Sultan was picked up as a stray in Cuyahoga County, taken to the county shelter and waited for his owners to come claim him. Nobody did. The staff and medical team at the county knew Sultan had some serious medical issues with his rear legs and were unable to place him so they networked him to rescues. Knowing that we have a lots of followers and could find a way to raise the money if needed for his care we agreed to take him in. Sultan is estimated to be between 3-5 years old and currently weights 55#. He has a happy disposition and wonderful personality that would qualify him to be a great dog for any family or owner who falls in love with him. Sultan is up to date on shots and neutered.
Sultan has a funny walk but that was not stopping him from being playful with the dogs in daycare, hopping into cars with volunteers to go to Pet People for adoption events or to Gateway Animal Clinic for his health exam. We found him a foster home and then took him to see Dr. Liz. She took Xrays of his legs and determined he would need to have two knee surgeries and referred us to Dr. Bob at Tremont Animal Clinic. Sultan as bilateral, permanent medial luxation — both knees are being operated on and we expect a full recovery over the next few months.
We are setting up a YouCaring Fundraising account to help us raise the necessary funds to cover the costs of his medical care. Click here to donate:
Foster Home Report:
We are not a traditional shelter, we are a cage-free facility. All dogs are temperament tested and must get along with other dogs to stay here. Appointments must be made in advance to meet our Secondhand Mutts. Please call 216-664-9660 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time. We are closed on Sundays. We prefer to adopt to local families but will consider long distance adoptions.
