Matilda – March 2nd, 2015

6/16/13: Please welcome Matilda!  She is a five year old stray that was picked up by a kind woman who then took her to the vet to be scanned for a microchip.  She did not have one.  Unfortunately she could not bring her into the house and she had been living outside for the past week while the family was attempting to find her owner.  The owner never came forward.  She was transferred to an emergency foster home but was only able to stay there for a few days.  We arranged transport for Sunday to get her to Atlanta.  Thank you Pam, Daniel, Jennifer, Matt and Caroline for helping her get here.

It appears that she has a c section scar, an ear infection, and a very smelly mouth.  She needs her teeth cleaned and maybe a few rotten ones pulled.  She will see Dr Rush on Monday for spay and palate surgery and of course he will take care of her teeth too.

She likes dogs, cats and kids.  She will be available for adoption after she recovers from surgery.

Update 6/24/13: Matilda went to see Dr Rush today for spay, palate and dental surgery but she only got a dental. Her mouth was very bad and he had to pull eight rotten teeth. Her blood pressure dropped a bit during surgery so he finished up her mouth and ended the surgery. She will go back in a few weeks for spay and palate.

Update 7/5/13: Matilda will be adopted by her foster parents Vanessa and Russ after her spay and palate surgery on 7/29!

Update 8/11/13: Matilda has been adopted by her foster family!  Congrats Matilda, Vanessa, Russ, Louie and Panda!


March 2, 2015: We say farewell to a jewel today.  Matilda (GEBR alum) came into rescue as a stray, she went to here foster, quickly wrapped them around her paw and made them her own.  She was officially adopted in 8/2013, but Matilda knew the day she walked into the Brown home….it was home for the rest of her life. Matilda lost her battle with cancer this morning in the loving arms of her family. Russ and Vanessa, thank you for making the last chapter of Matilda’s life, the very best chapter of her life.  It’s NEVER long enough but you gave her the life she was born to lead in 18 months.  We thank you! Rest in Peace precious soul. Please keep the Brown family in your thoughts and prayers.
