Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

SACRAMENTO, CA -- A Sacramento pug rescue group is reaching out to animal lovers in hopes of providing a much needed surgery for one of their precious pugs.  

Eight year-old Mija (Mee-ha) is a playful pug who loves to snuggle. She was rescued by PugSavers, a Northern California pug rescue group, after her owner, who loved her dearly couldn't afford special care for her diabetes. Mija's foster family has been taking great care of her until she finds her forever home, but recently her condition has worsened causing blindness in both of her eyes. 

It has been recommended by a specialist that both of Mija's eyes be removed to help with her diabetes and alleviate what has now become a painful condition.

Keep Household Drains Fat Free this Holiday Season

Remember to properly dispose of all fats, oils and grease after the big holiday meal
 

Sacramento, CA - Sewer blockages and backups increase by up to 50 percent during the holidays. Leftover food put down kitchen sinks and garbage disposals contributes to increased sewer clogs. People can avoid potentially messy problems and holiday havoc by properly disposing of fats, oils and grease.

When poured down the sink, fats, oils and grease accumulate in sewer pipes restricting flow and ultimately causing blockages and backups in homes and neighborhoods.
