Cascade came into Fulton County as a stray in September. For 3 months, Cascade sat in the pound completely paralyzed in the back end. She was unable to urinate on her own and has no control of her bowels. Euthanasia was being considered as finding a rescuer or adopter was unlikely. Who would want to express a dogs bladder 4 to 5 times a day? We met her while rescuing Cassie. Cascade showed us she really wanted to live, so we had to try. Nobody else was going to take Cascade. Fulton had been trying special needs rescues for months. On a hunch, we sent a video of Cascade to one of our friends who has helped us rescue in the past. She had previously adopted a paralyzed dog a few years back. Almost instantly we got a reply and Cascade finally had a foster home! Cascade is permanently paralyzed in the back end and there is no chance of recovery. To help her get around, she will need both of her back legs and tail amputated since she has no control or sensation in her lower extremities. She will also need to be spayed and have a vaginoplasty to help reduce urinary tract infections. She may need a lot of help, but we are committed to everything this resilient girl needs.
On paper this dog looks like she would have no quality of life. When you meet her, its a different story. Cascade loves life, she loves people, she loves dogs, she loves cats. She will be ready for adoption when she has recovered from her amputations and been fully vetted. Cascades bladder has to be manually expressed 3 times a day otherwise she will start to leak and could become infected.
