Sophia – Special Needs

This poor girl was found wandering on her own for over a week up Island. Sadly it was found out that her owner passed away so she was homeless. Thankfully some big hearted people helped her and she is now safe in a temporary foster home. She has a lot of big lumps and bumps, and mostly blind and deaf.

She has gone to the vet and had tests and her blood work was pretty good for an old gal! Sadly though she does have soft tissue sarcoma (cancer) in her legs. Due to her age we are looking at keeping her as comfortable as possible and see if we can remove some of the mass so she can at least walk better and then offer pain control. She is happy and a sweet girl so it isn’t her time yet we feel. But we do need someone with a big heart to offer to take her in to their home for her final days. Where she is now is only temporary so we are hoping someone out there would be willing to give this cutie a palliative home .. We of course will cover all the costs. If you are interested or have questions please email us to chat ! She is good with other dogs.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
