JUN 18,2013:

This is Marilyn.  One of the sweetest hounds you will ever meet. Animal control picked her up as a stray with an eye injury. The poor thing had dried blood all over her face.  The vet said it looked like the injury was about two weeks old.  Marilyn was wearing a collar with no id so she had to be in the custody of animal control for 10 days.  Almost Home took custody the day she was released from Animal Control. 

Marilyn had surgery on June 14 to remove her eye.  When Fonda, one of the staff from Almost Home, stopped by the vet’s office to check on her, she was still out of it from anesthesia. Her surgery went well.  When Fonda was taking pictures she kept saying, “POOR BABY”, and Marilyn started wagging her tail even though she was unconscious.  Oh what a sweetheart! 

Donations are being accepted on our Nelson County SPCA website's "Help To Heal" fund to help our shelter recover the cost of this surgery.
