Sponsor Animal Update: Ranger
2nd Quarter 2011
RANGER NEEDS SPONSORS! Ranger is a 2-year-old Black Labrador Retriever Mutt-i-gree®. The Animal League rescued Ranger and placed him in the Sponsor Program, where he will be cared for the rest of his life. Ranger has been diagnosed with melanoma, which is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. The Animal League discovered the melanoma on his right, hind toe. Even though the cells were removed from Ranger’s toe, it is very likely that the melanoma will resurface, as it is known to spread rapidly to other parts of the body. Ranger will need to be monitored closely for the rest of his life. Animal League veterinarians can’t really determine how long Ranger will live, but the cancer will likely shorten his lifespan. Ranger is an incredibly loving dog. His gentle nature and sweet disposition make him extremely charming. Ranger will be placed in a permanent foster home, where he will be cherished.
