My name is Erin Duffus, I'm 16 years old and I live in Linden, JHB. I am setting up a few fundraisers to help raise money for a surgery my dog, Daisy, needs asap.
Daisy, our 7-year-old Labrador has recently been diagnosed with relatively mature cataracts in both her eyes which will cause her to go completely blind within the next few months to few years. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell how much time she has left before this happens. Our baby girl already struggles to see at night, she walks into trees and falls over clearly visible objects, but still seems as happy as she could possibly be.
The only way to remove the cataracts is through a R35 000 surgery. There are only 4 specialists in the country and only 1 facility that has the necessary equipment.
Daisy's quality of life will slowly start to lessen as cataracts mature further and she becomes more visually impaired. We do not want that life for her and will probably have to put her down once this happens.
Daisy has been the light of our lives for the past 7 years and has brought us so much joy and happiness. She LOVES going on walks where she can pee on trees, bark at other dogs, and drag her owners through the mud so she can stay ahead. She just has so much fun seeing the world outside of her home walls. She loves playing ball after a good sesh of tug-of-war and only knows how to wiggle her whole butt when she gets excited. And she loveeees taking a dip in the pool after a thorough grooming session, or just when summer gets to be too much for her.
Please help us save Daisy and give her her beautiful life back .
These funds will all go towards Daisy's surgery
It will save her life. If she cannot have this surgery within the next few months, she will go completely blind and we will have to put her down.
Your donation goes towards the R35 000 surgery that Daisy has to get within the next few months before she goes blind.
