Mimi was surrendered to DCACC because her owners were moving and could not take her with them. After examining Mimi, it was clear that she had a major hip problem, causing her to live in pain. Mimi needed surgery, but first she had to lose weight. Upon reaching an ideal weight, DuPage Animal Friends paid for Mimi's surgery through the Critical Care & Rehabilitation Fund. During the procedure, It was determined by the surgeon that one of her legs needed to amputated for her to live a happy, pain-free life.
Mimi is doing amazing! She is still in the loving foster home she's been in for weeks, first losing the weight, then recovering from the amputation - then finally two weeks ago she had a major dental with extractions. This little lady never gives up! She is still in her foster home and can be seen by appointment for adoption.
What's more is that Mimi has lived in pain for years and never stopped being sweet. She is finally healthy, comfortable and pain-free.
If you are interested in adopting Mimi, please contact DCACC to arrange a meeting: 630-407-2800.
