Please Help Zeke


Zeke is a 10 month old Border Collie/Lab puppy. We rescued him from Frederick County Animal Control, Maryland. At FCAC, Zeke was diagnosed with Glaucoma and as a result was in some pretty intense pain. Being unsure what would happen to Zeke we took him into our foster program and committed to paying for his surgeries. Zeke will need to be seen by a specialist so his treatment can begin on his other eye. Although we are not sure if he will keep his other eye we know that every animal can make the world a better place, even if they have a disability. We believe in this and that's why we committed to taking him in. He is a sweet pup who loves other dogs, cats and people of all ages. Please donate if you can to help Zeke!
