Bentley, a near blind 8-year-old Maltese, has had a pretty challenging year. First, his lifetime owner died and Bentley ended up in a shelter. Rescued by The Animal Protectorates last summer, he was sad and anxious. His inability to see made things even worse.
But then things started to look up for Bentley. After a few weeks in our care, his life began to change. A lovely, elderly couple saw him at our Operation Adopt storefront. Deeply saddened over the recent loss of their dog, they fell head-over-heels in love with Bentley. The next eight months were truly wonderful, with his additional 4 pounds as testimony to his happiness!
But then Bentley’s new parent died and he was back with us at Operation Adopt.
What could we do for him, beyond the love and affection that were the easiest thing in the world to give this sweet and adorable little creature? We took him to the ophthalmologist to find out whether we could do anything to restore his vision. And we discovered that we could, indeed, surgically remove his bilateral cataracts. Bentley could see again! He’s been through so much. But with your help, we can restore his vision. Surgery on one of his eyes will cost $2500. But we can treat them both for $4000.
Will you — please — help us fund Bentley’s eye surgery so that he can go into his next home with his eyes wide open?
