Meet Genna

Beautiful natured girl who loves kids and can only go to a home where she is able to be an integral part of the family. She loves to be where ever her family are and if they go off in different direction she stand there debating as to who she must follow first and then roams around checking on everyone else wherever they are.

When desexed they found she had a cancerous tumor in one of her ovaries. The ovary was removed intact.

When Genna was being desexed an ovarian tumour was discovered during the surgery. Pathology reports showed this to be cancerous however luckily it appears the whole tumour was removed and there is no sign of it having spread. Genna is doing well and is now a happy, bouncy girl after having quite a bad reaction to the anesthetic.

Genna's vet costs have come to $355 and we are seeking sponsorship to help us cover these additional costs. If you can help please call Megan on 9627 2767 or email or click below Thank you to S.McLean for her generous donation
