After a North Las Vegas woman adopted three blind senior dogs, her community stepped up to help when one of the dogs got sick. 

The dogs were nicknamed the Three Blind Angels during their time at the animal shelter, The Nevada Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 

The shelter found it difficult to find them a permanent home since the dogs are family and needed to be adopted together. It was also difficult because all three dogs are blind. 

The Devers immediately fell in love with the dogs and adopted them. 

A few weeks ago, the oldest dog, Bella, woke up with an infected eye. The Devers turned to the community for help, creating a GoFundMe account with a picture of the three dogs. 

Many people recognized the dogs from their time at the shelter and wanted to help out. The Devers raised enough money to get Bella her surgery. 

"They were in the shelter for almost a year, and a lot of people knew who they were," says Devers. 

Since Bella already had some vision loss, the surgery removed her eyes completely, so she would no longer be in any pain. 

Bella is now recovering, and Lindsay Devers says they couldn't have done it without the help of the community.
