Umbrella of Hope 'Be Our Pet'



12 yr old, 55 lb* (on a major diet) Cattle Dog SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION

 

 

Meet Diadora... our sweetheart 

These photos may be hard to look at, but imagine how hard it was for this sweet dog to live like this... THIS is why we are here. THIS is why we rescue. For the dogs like Diadora who have no other options. They have Umbrella of Hope.

Diadora was left at San Jose Animal Care Center and was treated by Tails of a Shelter Vet and they went above and beyond what would normally be done in a shelter setting. The San Jose Animal Advocates asked us if we could take her into our program. Of course we could!

Diadora is a 12 yr old Australian Cattle Dog. She is horrifically overweight. She weighs 55 lbs and should weigh closer to 35 lbs. Her weight has caused horrific arthritis and she is on a diet to help her get down to a comfortable weight and take pressure off of her joints.

Of more immediate concern was the glaucoma in both of her eyes. Having glaucoma of this stage caused pain that had to be unbearable. It is like having a massive migraine 24-7 that no medicine can touch. When glaucoma is allowed to get to this stage by neglectful owners, there is no going back. The eyes have to be removed. We had this done at our vet clinic.

Diadora was already blind. So, removing her eyes did not make a difference to her except it alleviated her pain. Dogs who are blind do just fine... and Diadora is no exception. She has been blind for a long time. Now she is not in pain anymore.

She went from being a very sweet, but very sedate girl to a very happy dog who wags her tail constantly. She must feel SO MUCH BETTER!

Diadora will be looking for a home who is prepared to deal with her blindness (it really is no big deal). She also needs a home committed to her diet and (once she heals from surgery) an exercise program consisting of short walks and possibly shallow swims.

She is a lovely lady. Very gentle and unassuming. Polite and crate trained. She is housebroken and walks well on a leash. She is fine with other dogs and cats. She would be great with gentle children who are old enough to understand her limitations.

If you are interested in adopting Diadora, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!

About Umbrella of Hope

About Our Rescue Group...

Umbrella of Hope exists to rescue, rehibilitate, and rehome animals from shelter situations with a focus on East Contra Costa County, California. Our goal is to reduce the euthanasia of adoptable animals through increased adoptions of those animals already born. Help increase public safety by reducing the number of strays and feral animals through population control who might carry disease or pose other dangers to the community. Provide resources to pet owners to enable them to be responsible forever guardians of their companion animals. To increase public awareness of homeless pets, encourage spay and neuter of companion animals, and promote adoption for the acquisition of family pets.
