Helping Animals in Need
MEET LUIGI. His owner moved away and abandoned Luigi outdoors to fend for himself. Kindly neighbors, who were feeding him, noticed that he was always squinting. Luigi suffered from entropion, a condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward against the cornea. Eyelashes constantly rubbed his eyes so that it hurt to open them. If not corrected, the damage to the cornea could eventually leave him blind. The neighbors called East County Animal Rescue (ECAR), a grassroots network of volunteers who are passionate about helping animals in need within the San Diego community.
