Three shelter dogs in Nashua that required medical care before becoming available for adoption got a big step closer on the path of their adoption, thanks to generous donations from the public.
The Humane Society for Greater Nashua said the trio needed surgeries. So, it launched a GoFundme page to raise money for the dogs. Many people came forward to help the animals, raising $11,815 of a $15,000 that was set as goal by the society.
One of the three dogs is Diamond, who received successful treatment for an eye condition last week, has already been adopted by a family. Diamond was sent to the animal shelter by a family that became unable to care for the pet.
The other two dogs are Kit Kat and Lily. Kit Kat is a five-year-old cocker spaniel, while Lily is a 7-year-old pug mix. Both were found abandoned in earlier this year Nashua. Kit Kat came to the animals’ shelter with chronic ear infections and ingrown nails. Lily needed surgery for a rear knee that was holding on just by a tendon.
Noelle Schuyler, an assistant development director at the society, said, “They are all in various stages of recovery. They all had very different surgeries.”
Shelter officials said they were very happy to see a strong response from the bighearted public after they launched the campaign to help the animals.
