Little Coral was adopted from the Oceanside shelter by a mother and daughter who wanted to give her a good home. Mom is fighting cancer and survives off Social Security, and Daughter is a full time college student who receives student grants and loans. They adore little Coral, in spite of the fact that she likes to chew on everything! Unfortunately Coral’s bad habit got her into a bit of trouble and a piece of a toy became stuck in her intestines. Her owners were devastated when they learned out much the surgery would cost to save their beloved pup. They thought they were going to lose her. Fortunately, Mission Animal and Bird Hospital partnered up with FACE to save Coral’s life.
