Facts about Rose

Our sweet Rose is an approximately 11+ year old Pit Bull mix. She's fixed, UTD on shots, and microchipped. Rose is dog and kid friendly. Can be cat tested upon request. House and kennel trained.

Rose is considered special needs because she'll need medication for the rest of her life to maintain her health. She was diagnosed with Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA), an immune disorder that causes her body to kill its own red blood cells, shortly after coming into our organization. After the obviously hard life Rosie lived given her physical appearance prior to ending up in the shelter and then joining our LARC adoptables we were determined to do our best to save her life. She was a very sick girl and getting her to where she is now as far as being stable wasn't easy, but it was worth it. Rose is as sweet as she can be and loves everyone. She's the lobby greeter at the vet and must say hi to anyone she can get close to. Now that she's feeling better Rosie is a sassy low-energy old lady who would love to spend her remaining time with a forever family.

These are the medications Rose is taking:

*prednisone (immunosuppressant)
*famotidine (to prevent ulcers from prolonged prednisone use)
*mycophenolate (immunosuppressant - hoping to be able to phase the prednisone out in the future and just have her on this medication)
*milk thistle (liver support)

About Loxahatchee Animal Rescue Community (L.A.R.C.)

About Our Rescue Group...

Loxahatchee Animal Rescue Community (L.A.R.C.) is a 501(c)(3) foster based rescue organization. Our rescue is a bit different, however, in that we not only want to SAVE lives, but EDUCATE the community too. L.A.R.C. will be hosting community outreach programs covering different topics crucial to responsible pet ownership. Our goal is to help community members keep their pets by becoming a trusted resource for what is needed to do so. This not only helps two and four legged family members stay together, but prevents more animals from entering the shelter.

L.A.R.C. depends on fosters to reach our life saving goals and further our rescue efforts. If you'd like to join our team by becoming a foster, please reach out to us via the phone number and/or email address provided.

If you're unable to adopt or foster please consider donating to L.A.R.C. through our youcaring fundraiser:

Educate, Act, and SAVE A LIFE!
