Thanks to donations, we were able to provide Bear with much needed eye surgery to remove irritating growths on both eyes. Can you imagine trying to blink with that in your eye? Northwest Animal Hospital took great care of our pup and she is recovering well. Doesn’t she look great?! Bear is about 8 years old and spayed. She is now happy AND healthy and ready to be adopted. 

If you want to provide a life-changing donation to help animals just like Bear, you can visit our page: animalservices.grapevinetexas.gov/1296/Donate.

Royal superfans won’t mind the gap in time zones, of course.
