Hi there! My name is Hazel and I am so happy you are checking out my page. I have definitely faced some tough situations throughout my life but I am so happy to be with my hospice family for the rest of my days. A wonderful Ruff Start volunteer fell in love with me after I found myself in the shelter on a cold winter night. I had no fat on my body, rotten teeth, and was nervous about what was to come. I am so glad she saw my potential and knew Ruff Start could help. My foster mom saw my picture and it was game over, I had stolen her heart.
We took the journey out of the shelter together, both unsure of what the next steps were. Little did she know, I was ready to roll! I love to run in the backyard with my foster brother and snuggle on the couch with my kitty brother. I actually had most of my teeth removed, now my tongue sticks out sometimes. I also have early kidney disease which is being monitored and I will have to get my bloodwork checked every 6 months. I also have to be on special prescription food which gets expensive if we do not have any donated. The kidney disease may be the cause of my urine incontinence, but I am hoping if I gain some muscle I may be able to hold it better! I do have to wear diapers in the house so my foster family would be grateful for any sponsorship money for diapers!
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
