Sunny Jones had a very rough start to life, but we’re happy to announce she was adopted on April 2 and she’s flourishing with her new family. She even has a new cat sibling that she loves and plays with! We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to her intestinal issues, the original reason she was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read her entire story below.
Sunny Jones was surrendered to the shelter with a prolapsed rectum. Luckily, our partner, Deity, learned about her the same day and rescued her immediately for medical attention. She had emergency surgery that night to resolve the prolapse, and has since prolapsed three more times. The doctors suggested a more invasive procedure to shorten her colon for her best chance at recovery.
Sunny is a very calm little lady and made absolutely zero fuss about her departure from the shelter.
Sunny seemed to understand that she was getting the help she needed and was very accepting of all the love and attention she received from the veterinarian staff.
A biopsy of her GI tract was performed to discover what had caused the prolapse. The results of the biopsy found inflammation in her GI, and she tested positive for Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD). The plan now is to treat her IBD with a very strict prescription diet, supplements and probiotics, which she will most likely need for the rest of her life to prevent future prolapses.
During her visit, the vet determined Sunny is just a puppy – only 3 months old! She’s had a very tough start to life, but she’s incredibly strong and we believe in her ❤
Little miss SJ has been recovering since her first surgery in a wonderful foster home. She discovered that she loves squeaky toys and laying in the sun. Her foster mom reports that she is a chill and social puppy that bonds quickly and soaks up love. Overall she is a little ray of sunshine like her name suggests.
Sunny Jones is doing great! She has an appointment scheduled for March 25, 2022 for a post-surgery update.
