In October 2020, we received a tiny, six-month-old puppy named Cola, who was completely blind and deaf. Her condition kept us up at night, as we worried about her wellbeing. When she arrived at the DIOZ, she was covered in feces, unresponsive, and barely alive. However, her worst issue was the relentless seizures she experienced, with 10 episodes every day.
Cola was immediately taken to the best specialists for testing, and they discovered brain abnormalities responsible for her seizures, deafness, and blindness. She was given medication, and we waited for improvements.
After much hard work and care, the seizures finally stopped, and Cola regained her sight and hearing. Following her recovery at a temporary home with the wonderful Ania, Cola was ready for adoption. She found her new family with Mrs. Agnieszka in Lodz, who had previously fostered puppies for our affiliated charity, the Judyta Foundation.
Cola’s journey is an inspiring story of resilience and love. Despite her challenges, she was able to overcome them with the help of dedicated professionals and caring individuals. Her story is a reminder of the importance of animal welfare, the power of kindness, and the joy that comes from rescuing a vulnerable creature in need. We hope that Cola’s story inspires others to consider adopting or fostering pets and supporting animal charities.
