Elderly dogs at shelters have such a tough time finding a home, especially when they have conditions that need extra care, like blindness.

The Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) had three such dogs in their care – Bella, Tres, and Bear – and they were desperately looking to find homes for the three blind, senior dogs. The dogs had been at the shelter for over a year, and the last thing they wanted was for the dogs to be put down, as the dogs still had a few years of healthy life ahead of them.

The three Australian Cattle Dogs, also known as the three blind angels at the shelter, are a trio of mother, son and daughter. That’s why the NSPCA wanted them to be adopted into the same home. Luckily for them, Lindsay Devers fell in love with the three dogs on a visit to the shelter one day.

Lindsay adopted the dogs right away, and they finally had a home to call their own. They were showered with love and attention every day. However, a few months later Bella, the mother dog, woke up with an infected eye. Since it was a serious infection, and she had almost no vision left anyway, the vets strongly suggested having her eye removed.

But the corrective surgery wasn’t cheap. So Lindsay decided to setup a GoFundMe page, seeking help from her community. This turned out to be a great move, as the three dogs were already semi-famous in her community. Almost everybody who had visited the shelter in the past year knew who they were. The community pitched in, and Lindsay was able to hit the funding target of $715 to get Bella the treatment.

It’s wonderful when the community comes together to help our four-legged friends. Kudos to the people who helped Bella and Lindsay. Click the video below to watch their story.
