Jolly 1
Jolly has been in foster for over two years and approximately 10-12 years old.  He is  not adoptable because of his past neglect and abuse. His expenses every month are for heart guard, nexguard, eye drops,a and supplements to give him the best quality life he can have. We groom him because he can’t be groomed by anyone but it’s a 4-5 hour job.  He occasionally needs antibiotics for his eyes, he is completely blind but had re occurring eye infections. We would appreciate a sponsor or just donations to help with his care. Just because he is deemed un-adoptable doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be cared for and loved by a permanent foster/hospice. He came from a puppy mill. It averages between 30-60 dollars a month. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO HIS FOREVER FOSTER CARE
