The Far Rockaway Rescue Project was able to rescue Lea from a horrifying life of cruelty and abuse. Now, your help is needed to save her eye. Lea was turned out into the streets from one of the dangerous housing projects here in Far Rockaway. She was thrown out like trash with a multitude of fresh cuts as well as bites, including one very serious one in her eye.
When we first met Lea she could not open her eye at all and she was in pain. When Christine opened it to see what was going on and clean it her eyeball was rolled back in her head and it was a cloudy color.
We brought her to our vet and within minutes of her arrival the doctors looking at her eye put her under sedation to see what was going on. They initially cleaned out the eye and did a scraping. Two days later Lea underwent surgery and they stitched her eye closed with a “third eyelid” temporary implant and spacer (seen here) to help her eye heal. She has been to the vet every few days since then and needs a fianl surgery this week to complete the process of saving her eye.
PLEASE consider making a contribution to save Lea’s eye.With so many to care for lately we really need your help. Thank you!
