Señor was found as a stray by a good Samaritan who brought him to ADL. When Señor came to our shelter, he could hardly open his eyes, was missing lots of fur, had irritated skin, and was obviously not feeling well. After receiving an examination from our veterinarian team, it turned out Señor had severe dermatitis, ear mites, fleas, a broken tooth, and hair loss from sarcoptic mange. He also tested positive for Feline Immunodefiency Virus (FIV). Señor spent many weeks in our hospital where he received lime dips, a tooth extraction, and additional treatment to help him heal. After defeating sarcoptic mange, Señor had another issue to overcome. He had entropion, a condition where the eyelids fold inward causing him painful eye discomfort and irritation. Thankfully our veterinarian was able to repair the entropion with surgery. After spending months in our hospital recovering from various health issues, Señor was finally feeling and looking much better. He once struggled to open his eyes but is now able to show-off his beautiful loving green eyes. His fur has grown back and he’s much more happier!
After 9 months at ADL, Señor finally found his forever home on November 5, 2018 at the Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions. Our staff got to know Señor well and he became a favorite around ADL. After all he had been through, we were incredibly happy that he finally found the loving home that he deserves.
Unfortunately, many of the animals that we take in need additional medical care and we never give up on an animal. They may spend weeks and sometimes months recovering in our hospital. Señor is just one of the many pets at the Animal Defense League who needed extra care before he was ready to find his forever home.
