All Kauai wants in life is what any dog want, to frolic, play, and be loved. Sadly, what we know of Kauai’s life thus far is nowhere near that.
Kauai was found living on the streets with her young puppies. Perhaps she was abandoned or had lived her entire life on the streets. When she was found, Kauai could barely walk, though it was clear that this strong mama fought valiantly to keep her young puppies alive. Luckily, Kauai and her puppies were brought to a shelter. Several rescues were able to take her puppies, but we were the only rescue that said YES to Kauai.
Kauai was going to need a special foster home and significant care. One of our incredible veterinary partners determined that she will need surgery on her legs so that she will be able to walk normally. These surgeries and the rehabilitation afterward will be long and expensive, up to $10,000, but we know this sweet girl deserves to romp freely. It’s time we take care of Kauai.
