Two Boston Terriers Receive The Miracle Of Sight
Stories like this are the reason I started this wonderful site. We received an amazing email last night from Jo-Ellyn G. Vincent, President of Boston Terrier Rescue of Alabama.They had two Boston Terriers in their care missing something very important to a dog’s life, sight. Thanks to amazing donations and great people, these great dogs have that back. Here’s the email:
Dear Friends and Benefactors -
Because of your generous donations, in January, 2011 Miss Maggie Moo had cataract surgery to restore sight to this humble and loving senior Boston girl. She is doing great and can SEE. I wanted our friends and benefactors to see Maggie and her surgeon on a follow up recheck on September 16, 2011.
On July 20, 2011 another senior Boston girl, Kaiah, had an eye injury to her only eye. You again came to her aid and financially enabled her to have surgery to save this eye. As a result of the injury and subsequent surgery, she developed a cataract in the eye and was blinded by this development. YOU again gave generously and on September 13, 2011 Kaiah also had cataract surgery which has restored her sight.
Boston Terrier Rescue of Alabama is extremely grateful to our caring and giving friends. Maggie Moo and Kaiah have had their sight given back to them and if they could, they would give each and every one of you a sweet “bostie” hug and kiss for the precious gift they have been given. I am their foster mom and want you all to know that there are not words sufficient enough to express my gratitude. These girls are no longer scared of each and every movement around them and now are able to play again like Bostons are accustomed to doing.
Dr. Susan Nelms and Dr. Jana Korsch are the veterinary ophthalmologists who performed the surgeries on Maggie Moo and Kaiah. Their superior skills and loving care of all animals is evident from the moment you meet each doctor and their staff members. Dr. Korsch is also owned by two Boston terrier sweeties. She knows, understands and loves the temperament and traits of Bostons which BTRA considers a big bonus.
I hope that you will watch the video of both Maggie and Kaiah. BTRA wants all of our friends and benefactors to know exactly how their contributions are actually being put to use. YOU are making a huge difference in the lives of the sweet Boston terriers that we have in rescue. Each one is loved and cared for in the best way possible and we credit YOU for enabling our volunteers to continue to save as many as we can financially afford.
Jo-Ellyn G. Vincent, President
Boston Terrier Rescue of Alabama
