Molly

On Hold Small Sponsored by Grant
Meet Molly, our first grant recipient! Molly is a sweet 9 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She was adopted from rescue about two years ago by a retired couple who wanted to help a dog in need. Molly was in poor health when she came to rescue with extremely decayed teeth and gum disease. She lost a significant number of teeth during her dental. Molly’s sweet personality became apparent with each new day as a result of her new loving home and necessary vet care.

In August, her new owner noticed Molly was lethargic and breathing heavily. Molly was rushed to an emergency clinic. Upon further evaluation and testing it was determined that Molly had a cancerous tumor in her heart that was inoperable. Molly’s owner took her to see a team of cardiologists and oncologists that felt they could address the heart issues. Molly’s specialists have been able to treat her with a “cocktail” of medications that have successfully managed the CHF and the tumor. The cost of Molly’s monthly medications alone was approximately $270. In addition, Molly is receiving ongoing care by her cardiologist and oncologist to monitor her condition. Molly is feeling good again as a result of her treatment. As part of our mission at the Cavalier Alliance, we intend to help offset expenses for adopted Cavaliers like Molly – especially those with heart issues common to the breed. To date, we have donated $500 towards Molly's cardiac care. As we continue through the first quarter of 2015, our goal is to cover at least 50% of Molly’s ongoing cardiac expenses in the form of direct payments to her vet.
