On February 28th of this year, Señor came to ADL in terrible shape and in obvious discomfort. This poor kitty could hardly open his eyes and was missing lots of hair. It turns out that Señor had severe dermatitis, ear mites, and hair loss from sarcoptic mange. He also tested positive for FIV. Señor spent many weeks in our isolation unit where he received lime dips and treatment from our hospital staff to help him heal. After defeating sarcoptic mange, Señor had another issue. He also had entropion, a condition where the eyelids fold inward causing him painful eye discomfort. Thankfully this was able to be corrected with surgery that was performed by our veterinarian. Señor didn’t have it easy and after spending months in our hospital, he has since healed. He is now able to show-off his beautiful green eyes! His fur has grown back and he seems much happier and loving!
After 9 months at ADL, Señor was finally adopted on November 5, 2018 at the Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions. The staff got to know him well and he was a favorite around ADL but we are incredibly happy that he finally found the loving home that he deserves.
Unfortunately, many of the pets that we take in need additional medical care such as Señor. They may spend weeks and sometimes months recovering. Señor is just one of the many pets at the Animal Defense League who needed extra care before being made available for adoption. If you’d like to help us save more lives, then please consider making a donation to help us with the next Señor.
