Calla was pulled from the Pima County animal shelter a few months ago. She was a shy dog that had given up on life, refusing to eat or move. This beautiful, black, dog has found her safe place. She is now eating again, she loves meeting strangers, kids and even other dogs. What's odd about Calla allowing these interactions is the Calla's back legs stopped working and she is unable to walk due to Valley Fever in her spine. She eats, she plays and she loves to be loved. Her favorite toy is her pink, plush teddy bear that she likes to have under her leg while she sleeps. She was picked up on the streets of South Tucson by an animal control officer, malnourished and fighting for her life. Calla found herself a loving foster home with her 4 animal siblings that are very protective of her. Her foster mom (a retired teacher) and Tucson Cold Wet Noses are paying for her 3 prescriptions that cost close to $175 per month. Team Up For Tucson wants to get Calla a cart so that she doesn't have to drag herself across the floor to play and she can enjoy her young life again. Calla was fitted for a mobile cart and once inside the cart this girl was UNSTOPPABLE!! She was on the move, sniffing plants, interacting with people and even eagerly took a quick stroll! We can turn Calla's life around by allowing this two year old dog mobility and freedom. The cart would cost approximately $430 and will be custom made to fit Calla. We need your help giving Calla her life back and not letting valley fever take away her right to be on the move like the other dogs in her pack. Please donate whatever you can toward her new cart.
