Anyone who is familiar with Empty Cages Collective knows the the founder of this organization, P.J., is very dedicated to protecting the welfare of all our city’s critters. Given today is his birthday I feel compelled to pass along the story of Nanu. Per Empty Cage Collective’s ChipIn page dedicated to her:
Nanu was recently rescued from a neglect situation by Empty Cages Collective. She was dropped (literally) by her previous guardians resulting in two terribly damaged knees and legs. After being denied care for this issue, Nanu developed a life threatening infection. Empty Cages Collective found out about Nanu’s plight from another rescuer and rushed into action to help her. After receiving emergency surgery for a runaway pyometra infection, Nanu went to an ECC foster home to recuperate.
She has recovered from her infection very well. She is incredibly sweet and lovable, and very snugly. But she can’t walk… yet. Surgery will provide Nanu with an opportunity to walk and even run and jump again…
