OPERATION PAWS FOR HOMES' Fundraiser:

Saving Thaddeus

THE STORY:

Thaddeus first arrived at Operation Paws for Home earlier this year from a high kill shelter in rural South Carolina. Shortly after his arrival it was discovered that Thaddeus suffers from a condition called Megaesophagus which makes it difficult for food and water to work its way to his stomach. As a result Thaddeus was fit with a special chair he uses at feeding time to help channel his food.

Thaddeus"s Human Angel came when Adele, a single mother, stepped up and adopted him, took him home and loved him. Unfortunately before Thaddeus's condition was diagnosed damage was done to his esophagus and he is now battling esophageal varices--weakened blood vessels in the throat. Forces like from vomiting can cause them to rupture which would kill him.

Thaddeus is in need of a gastric feeding tube, to allow the damage in his throat to heal, prevent regurgitation (which will kill him) and to help him gain weight since he can not seem to hold down enough food to be a healthy weight. Adele, welcomed Thaddeus to her family knowing full well he would require a greater monetary investment than any healthy dog. However, this recent discovery was unforeseen, creating a financial hardship.

Please join Operation Paws for Homes in our efforts to support both Thaddeus and his human Adele by donating to the cost of his medical bills. For more information on Megaesophagus please visit www.caninemegaesophagus.org

Adele, thank you for opening your home to a special needs dog. It takes a very special person to take that on. I hope that Thaddeus, you and your family have years of good times and memories. 3 years ago
