We're "in the red" but you can help
by entering our
"For the Love of Dogs" Raffle
What better way to mark this Valentine’s Day than by healing a canine heart! By opening your heart to a dog in need, you can truly change a life.
We have so many dogs in need right now, it’s hard to know where to start. We sadly did not raise enough funds last year to eliminate our existing medical balance, so our rescue was already “in the red” as we started out the year. Our accountant is now very flustered with us (red-faced in time for Valentine’s Day) and advising that we must start to say “NO” when confronted with canine emergencies. But we are a rescue that always leads from the heart, so how on earth can we do that? We are all about love and not about business, but that leaves us needing your help. Please open your heart (and also your wallet) in whatever way you can.
Here are just a few of our Angels who are in urgent need of treatment.
Reba is 5 and Jainil is 6 and both are in the hospital. Reba is recovering from a complex surgery, while Jainil is fending off a bad URI.
Dino is a senior with a mass in his eye. An ophthalmologist must remove the eye surgically for Dino to live his remaining days pain-free.
Petunia, who is only 5 years old, has suddenly gone blind from cataracts. Like Dino, she needs ophthalmic surgery in order to save her sight.
Sassy is also blind from cataracts, though she is only 7 years old. She too needs the ophthalmologist, as she is currently bumping into walls.
Eight year old Spanielli has inflamed and very painful ears. She urgently needs ear ablation surgery and has been waiting now for a while.
Mia, a senior, is suffering from immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (IMT) and has a massive mammary tumor (this tumor must be removed and biopsied to establish if it's malignant).
All of this major pending medical is in addition to all the ongoing medical that is needed to provide the most basic care (spay/ neuter, blood work, dentals, vaccines, etc). Plus, we still have our medical balance.
Please consider buying a Raffle Ticket this month to help with our mission. "For the love of dogs," we have some wonderful prizes to help put the red behind us.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!!!
