Thanks to the vet student’s dedication, Raisin was able to keep her eye and escaped the whole ordeal with minimal scarring, but the rescue knew that she still might face more ulcers and other issues with her eyes in the future. She needed a special kind of person to care for her full time — and before long, she found the perfect mom to take her on.
Raisin now lives with her new mom, Ruth Heffernan, who is a vet tech at the Animal Medical Clinic of Gulf Gate in Sarasota, Florida. Not only is Heffernan the perfect person to make sure Raisin is healthy and happy, but thanks to her, Raisin also has the perfect job — working with her mom at the clinic, every single day.
“She has become their clinic mascot and people love to come and meet her,” Heffernan told The Dodo.
