Chattanooga, TN
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered,
Please read the entire bio for this rescue, it will provide all the information that one needs to decide if they would like to apply to adopt from SCMR.Pinkie   This sweet girl is not a candidate for adoption at this time. She is around 8 years old and weighs in at a hefty 16 pounds. Pinkie came to us with mammary tumors, one of which had burst. After her first surgery, pathology revealed it was malignant. And the vet was not able to get clear margins. She has had more mammary tumors pop up and has had 2 more surgeries. We just don't know if the cancer will spread or not. Right now she is happy, relatively healthy (except for knowing her tumors were malignant) and is eating well. We are observing her to see if she starts showing signs of sickness. As long as she is otherwise well, we will take any more tumors off until/if they metastasize. So her future is grim. We regard her as terminal. We just don't know how long she has. If you would like to sponsor Pinkie and become one of her angels, we would be happy to post you as an angel for her. Donations for her will help to offset her surgical expenses. Until we know if she is going to make it or not, we don't feel it would be right to send her to a new home with all new people. If she's going to pass, we want her to be in the home with which she is familiar and with her rescue friends and foster mom who love her. Out-of-state adoptions are possible; however, the approved adoptive home is responsible for making the necessary arrangements to pick up their new little one.   To be considered to adopt me, please fill out an APPLICATION.   NOTE: SCMR DOES NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10 years or homes with Electric Fences. You can help make a difference one dog at a time. If you would like to sponsor one of our babies, we accept online donations via PayPal or send a check to us at P.O. Box 2005, Chattanooga, TN 37409. We thank you for whatever you can help us with. Any donation is appreciated and is tax deductible, as allowed by law,  as we are a qualified non-profit 501(c)3 organization.    All our males are sent with BELLY BANDS!    for a one time Donation that goes direct to SCMR please go to our paypal link: June 7, 2023, 6:45 pm
