HELP US SAVE ARMOR!!!
Lucky Charm Drawing
$10 per entry
When we first saw Armor standing in the kill pen with yellow tags on his hips and blood running from his eye, all thoughts were on reducing his suffering regardless what that entailed. He was rescued and named Armageddon because we knew he would need to be a fighter. He has been an inspiration! Whatever has come at him he has fought, survived and remained sweet, gentle and trusting. He fought off eye cancer, and at the time he had another tumor which was biopsied at New Bolton and turned out to NOT be penile cancer. Told to keep an eye on the growth, Guardian Oak has done just that. Armor moved home to Missouri and learned how to be a horse again, and has won over many hearts. The tumor grew uglier, and a more local vet visited and shared some thoughts and suggestions on continuing to keep him comfortable while funds were slowly put away for surgery. In the meantime, Armor has the opportunity for a loving forever home with his best friend Ruby, but we are committed to helping cover his veterinary needs, so that his new home does not need to deal with such a huge, immediate expense.
If you know how Guardian Oak works, you know we never give up on an animal who wants to fight. A couple weeks ago, the tumor took a turn for the worse, and after two weeks of more aggressive cleaning, antibiotics, etc, it was clear something was changing inside the growth. And then, from probably kicking at a fly, he started to bleed from an artery on the tumor. Sam, with help from Kim (thank you!) rushed Armor to the university vet teaching hospital. They had several suggestions but as always we want to give him the best possible chance at a healthy, cancer free future. A surgery to remove the tumor and all the unusual tissue throughout his penile and groin area is the best chance. His care at the university is going to total nearly $3,000. Please help Armor get the healing he needs! Become one of Armor's Angels today!
