NEWS RELEASE
HUMANE SOCIETY OF KITCHENER WATERLOO & STRATFORD PERTH
*************************

We've received an overwhelming response to our urgent appeal to save Mildred.

To date, the Mildred Needs Your Help! campaign has raised over $15,000.

Mildred continues to undergo medical procedures that will help improve her health and allow her to live out her remaining life more comfortably.

Yesterday, a veterinary surgeon had removed Mildred's overgrown/prolapsed vaginal tissue. The procedure went well, with no complications.

The surgeon also requested x-rays of her hips and pelvis due to her abnormal gait and stance in her hind end. This is a consequence of previous hip dislocations that were left untreated.

We also received the biopsy results from her largest mammary tumour and it is benign. That's great news for Mildred!

In approximately 2 weeks, Mildred will receive her final procedure - a dental and removal of the remaining small mammary growths. 

Between procedures, Mildred is resting comfortably in the care of a foster family, who were kind enough to supply the photos attached with this email. We've received several inquiries from the public about adopting Mildred.

Once she is ready for adoption we'll make an announcement on our social media. Those interested in placing an application will be able to do so on our website.

Mildred will need a modified lifestyle (no stairs/jumping up) and long term pain medication (similar to medications for arthritis) to keep her comfortable. We will not be accepting applications before Mildred is ready to go up for adoption.

The Mildred Needs Your Help! campaign will stay up until Aug. 21, 2020 for those interested in making a contribution.
