Gizmo & Belinda are sisters and best friends. Belinda is completely BLIND. Gizmo acts as her "eyes" in many situations. When Belinda wants to play, Gizmo will bring her toys - and not just any toys, toys that make noise, so that her sister can easily find them while they are playing. The sisters play together, bathe each other, and snuggle together regularly. They depend on each other a great deal. Rescued together, we knew they needed to stay together because of their incredibly special bond. 

Gizmo has pillow paws - which is a painful condition of swollen paws. We are managing it with ongoing care and medication, however, there is no cure. Both Gizmo & Belinda also have an unknown condition that causes them to over-groom at times. They have been tested for allergies, tried countless medications and special foods and have been to many veterinarians for this condition. No one is able to diagnose the cause. Keeping a calm, peaceful environment for them at A4A seems to be the best medicine for the treatment fo this condition. For all of these reasons, the girls are lifetime residents at A4A so that they can receive the ongoing veterinary/medical and other special care they need to live their best lives. 


It is amazing that despite being completely blind, with increased confidence from having her trusted sister by her side, Belinda easily navigates stairs, jumps on/off beds and couches, plays (a lot!) with her toys and her sister and uses her hearing and other senses to help her navigate life. Belinda and Gizmo are an incredibly special duo who are here at Advocates 4 Animals receiving lifetime care and they would love to have your support through a donation or sponsorship.
