Update November 8/19:  RIP sweet girl.  Mobi left us surrounded by her loving foster family.
Mobi is in our sanctuary care program.  She will be living out her days in a foster home where she will get lots of tender love and care.

Donations towards her care are greatly appreciated.

DOB April 14, 2007
Located in the GTA

Sweet gal Mobi arrived in our care after her owner passed away.  She is a total love bug who enjoys a good snuggle.

On intake, Mobi was in pretty rough shape suffering from severe mobility issues and morbid obesity, and with a heavily matted coat which had to be completely shaved off.  With some basic vet care, we were able to identify that her thyroid was not functioning properly so we have started thyroid meds to help her feel better and drop weight, and have successfully treated her for a UTI infection that was causing incontinence.  We have also begun a comprehensive pain management regimen that has made a tremendous difference for her and enabled her to move around much better.

Due to Mobi's advanced age and serious health issues, we have determined that she is not a candidate for adoption. Instead, she will remain in our foster program in our sanctuary care program.  Our priorities will be to ensure that she is pain-free and is able to enjoy a good quality of life in a loving foster home for her remaining time.

Donations to help offset the ongoing care of Mobi are appreciated.  Details for making a donation can be found by clicking here.
