Cairo is READY FOR A HOME NOW….Here is Cairo’s story After Surviving Hurricane Sandy lat year at this tim….
We were all told to evacuate and seek higher ground. When Hurricane Sandy barreled toward the East Coast in late October of last year, many of us didn’t think twice—we grabbed our pets and sought shelter.
The young Pit Bull was found alone, wandering the streets of Brooklyn in the aftermath of the storm. It’s hard to imagine what this puppy went through during the ferocious winds and rain that wreaked havoc for miles and miles.
We brought Cairo to our emergency boarding facility for pets whose families needed help or for found animals like Cairo. But his story doesn’t end there.
At the boarding facility, we discovered that Cairo suffered from a heart condition that caused him to collapse when he got too excited. ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Veterinarian Dr. Bonnie Wong says, “Every collapse was potentially life-threatening.” He was taken to the ASPCA Animal Hospital where he underwent surgery to mend his heart.
Cairo’s first year hasn’t been an easy one, but we’ve made sure that every day is filled with the love and affection he deserves. Now “he seems grateful for every moment he can romp around,” adds Dr. Wong. We’re only able to provide that kind of one-on-one care because of your support.
Thankfully, Cairo is safe—but our work isn’t done. We urgently need your help in securing a stable, comfortable home for Cairo—one that will take care of his medical needs, love him unconditionally, and be there for him…forever.
We can’t thank you enough for your dedication to animals like Cairo, those already fortunate enough to be in our care, and those still waiting for our help.
Please donate today and help us continue to provide intensive medical and behavior care for dogs like Cairo. When we met Cairo, he was wandering the streets, alone, after Hurricane Sandy. But his suffering didn’t end there.
Cairo had a life-threatening heart condition that required surgery at the ASPCA Animal Hospital. He has since recovered and received expert socialization from our staff. Now, after months of love, care and attention at the ASPCA, he is ready to be part of a safe, happy family.
You can help us make that happen. Thank you for being there for homeless animals and for helping provide the care they deserve. We’re so grateful for your support.
