Give the Gift of Sight to Homeless Dog

Please HELP Save Cassandra Craft’s Eyes

i-only-have-eyes-for-youThis Valentine’s Day, we are fundraising to give the gift of sight to a very special homeless dog!


Cassandra is a 3-year-old, sight-impaired Chihuahua  with cataracts in both eyes. She was rescued from a horrible hoarding case, along with forty other dogs and puppies.

The cause of the cataracts at such a young age is unknown. Due to her young age and the condition of her cataracts, the concern is that she will eventually develop glaucoma in both her eyes or lens luxation, both of which are painful conditions that could render her completely blind and even result in eye removal.

16300346_1385703521492352_11649935462423288_oTo prevent a lot of pain and heartache down the road, Motley Zoo Animal Rescue — the amazing rescue that we are fostering her through — is fundraising for the cost to perform cataract surgery on both eyes, which not only will prevent further complications, but it also has a good chance of restoring her eye sight to almost normal!

But Motley Zoo cannot do this alone! They rely on donations from private donors like you and me to afford challenging medical cases like Cassandra. Below are the details on the costs involved and how you can donate directly to Cassandra’s care!

Costs To Save Cassandra’s Eyes:

  • $145     Initial exam with the eye specialist
  • $330     Electroretinography (ERG) on both eyes. The purpose of the ERG is to determine whether the retina is functioning properly. This should tell us if she will be able to see after cataract surgery.
  • $3,400     Cataract surgery for both eyes. This includes the surgery, medications, and three follow-up exams.

** These costs do not include her additional medical needs, which include a spay surgery as well as a dental surgery to remove a bad tooth, and possibly a few other suspect teeth.
