Many blind dogs brought to shelters and taken in by rescues are suffering from serious medical problems. Before we adopted our blind dog Stanley, he required surgery to remove an infected eye. Dogs with blindness caused by glaucoma are often in terrible pain and other blind dogs have eye injuries resulting from abuse, neglect or unavoidable accidents. Blind dogs can also suffer from general medical problems resulting from poor care, age or genetic conditions. We plan to offer grants to non-profit rescuers of dogs with serious medical problems so that their pain can be relieved, their lives extended and their chances of being adopted greatly improved.
