Annie: Granted April 29, 2024


The Story of Annie

Last Updated: May 25, 2024

Annie first came to her rescuer in September of 2022 after she had been found as a stray and adopted from a Humane Society by a local family. Within days after she was adopted, it was discovered that Annie was urinating blood, she was taken to the vet and it was determined that her bladder was full of stones. She had surgery to remove them and then went back home with her new family. The vet was not associated with the shelter she was adopted from, and the shelter declined to take responsibility for the bill. As Annie recovered from her surgery, and from the long-term pain associated with the bladder stones, her personality began to change in her home. She became very aggressive towards other pets in the home and the family was afraid that their young children may get caught in the crossfire. They determined that it was best to relinquish Annie to a rescue and not the shelter. Annie has other issues which include reactivity in certain situations, and severe arthritis in her front shoulders. With all she had going on, Annie found another adoptive family and it was hoped she would live out her life with them. Unfortunately, Annie’s orginal rescuer came to find out that the adoptive family was rehoming her. Even after being told Annie would not do well with other pets, the family had got a young puppy not long after adopting Annie, and it was not working out. Annie should have been returned to rescuer as per the contract, but the family was trying to circumvent it. Fortunately, for Annie, the rescuer got her back in January of 2024. No one knows how old Annie is, and has begun to lose her eyesight, which actually helps, as she is much less reactive to animals in the distance now. She still must be kept separate from other pets, but is living a peaceful life with her rescuer – while she was listed for adoption, she didn’t have a single inquiry. She requires ongoing medications for arthritis (Galliprant and Gabapentin); additionally, Annie needs to be on a urinary prescription diet to prevent her from getting stones again. If need be, Annie will live her life out being loved and cared for by her rescuer and family.
