Two days ago, a small but dedicated organization reached out to us with a plea for help. Their request was about Marco, a stunning pitbull puppy with bright eyes full of life. But there was a shadow over his playful spirit: he simply couldn’t breathe. Upon further medical examination, the diagnosis was heartbreaking: a paralyzed larynx.
This condition is nearly a death sentence for animals. His only option was a highly specialized and intricate surgical procedure known as the “lateralization of the arytenoid cartilage”. The complexity of this surgery means that only a very small number of surgeons possess the skill and expertise to perform it safely and successfully. And, even in the best of hands, the surgery is not without its risks.
Yesterday was Marco’s day of reckoning. As he was prepared for surgery, his nervous energy was palpable. The weight of what was at stake hung heavily in the air, but we were determined to be by his side, supporting him at every juncture.
We documented this poignant journey, capturing the moments of tension, hope, and the unwavering spirit of animal rescue. I implore each of you to watch Marco´s video until the very end. It encapsulates the very essence of animal rescue and embodies everything we stand for at Let’s Adopt.
As you witness Marco’s journey and the lengths we go to save these innocent souls, I hope you’ll be moved to support our mission. The surgeries, medical care, and rehabilitation we offer come at a significant cost. We rely on the kindness and generosity of individuals like you to make our mission possible. If you can, please consider making a donation. Every contribution, no matter how small, aids us in our relentless pursuit to save more animals in need.
