Friends of Chance uniting to help him keep his sight!

I discovered Chance walking alone in a parking lot late one night, while visiting family in another state. With one look at Chance I could see that he had recently been through some traumatic event, as his face was red, raw and swollen causing his eyes to be tightly closed. As a single mom I wasn't planning on taking on a responsibility of a puppy, especially a puppy which would need instant medical attention. I decided that the least that I could do was take Chance to the vet the next day to get a full medical evaluation and also to make sure that he wouldn’t be bringing anything into the house while he was staying with me. At his check up the vet found Chance to be a Shih tzu mix, about 10 months old and to be in great health, besides his head trauma. The vet found that Chance had retinal detachment in both eyes. Retinal detachment is the separation of the retina. I was saddened by this news for the reason that if this condition is not corrected as soon as possible Chance could lose his eye sight forever. The vet found that Chance’s case was so severe that the only option for treatment was surgery, and not at a light cost. The cost for Chance’s surgery for both eyes, plus the cost of aftercare treatment, is going to be close to $10,000! After finding Chance I decided to do the right thing and post ads in the local area to help locate the true owner of Chance, but still to this day have not found his rightful owner. Since I am a single mom, and feel I cannot take on this responsibly, I do have a family member that is willing to take on both Chance and his urgent medical condition. I, as a kind hearted person, cannot allow my close family member to bare this costly medical condition alone. I am asking for everyone’s help in giving Chance the chance to be able to live a long and healthy life with his eyesight.
