Lettie

Meet sweet Lettie. She is 8 months old and has had a pretty crappy life so far. We were called by a person that got her a week prior from another person. She had been vomiting and having diarrhea for 2 days, and he didn’t have any money to take her to the vet. We were working on bringing her into the rescue, but less than a day later he took her to the shelter to be euthanized anyway! Fortunately, we were contacted and were able to intercept her.
 

Lettie had parvo, was incredibly weak, and is about 25 lbs underweight. She only weighs 60 lbs right now. The following 24-36 hours were critical. She survived the parvo but did develop some aspiration pneumonia. She had to spend several more days at the emergency vet on oxygen and IV antibiotics. 

Lettie was released on 11/25 to go to her foster home.  She is still on antibiotics but is feeling much better!  She still has about 25 lbs to gain and then she needs to be spayed.  This girl is a fighter and so sweet and grateful to be in a home and getting better! She is so special, and we are so incredibly happy that she pulled through!

Her vet bills totaled $3000.  As a nonprofit, we would greatly appreciate any donations to help cover these expenses. No donation is too small to help.

Cost: $3000

Roxie

Our sweet, senior girl Roxie had to spend a few days at the emergency vet right after coming into rescue. She was refusing food. Sometimes when these babies are stressed this happens, but this was going on too long. We took her to our regular vet and found out after some x rays she had pneumonia. Roxie was transferred to CARE Hospital. We got good news that an ultrasound of her belly is clear, no tumors or abnormalities (this was something we’d become concerned about since she wasn’t eating)! And she started to eat a little a couple of days into her treatment. Roxie was discharged back to her foster home where she’s feeling much better!

We need some financial angels to help cover the cost of getting Roxie better! Anything is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible! Thank you!

Cost: $2000

ShyAnn

This sweet girl came to us from a shelter, and she was heartworm positive. If left untreated, heartworms eventually kill their host. ShyAnn is currently undergoing heartworm treatment which consists of a combination of ivermectin and doxycycline.

The cost to treat heartworms seems to go up each year as the cost of the medications to do so increases, especially the doxycycline. Thank you for supporting ShyAnn’s treatment!

Estimated cost: $1000

Blue

Beautiful Blue came to us from a shelter with mammary tumor and heartworm positive. If left untreated, heartworms eventually kill their host. She is currently undergoing heartworm treatment which consists of a combination of ivermectin and doxycycline. Her vet felt that is was safe for her to undergo surgery to remove and biopsy her tumor and spay her at the same time. We’re happy to report that the mass is benign!

Thank you for supporting Blue’s treatment and surgery!

Estimated cost: $1400

Jasper

This hunk is also heartworm positive, as are so many dogs who come from shelters or are “strays”. If left untreated, heartworms eventually kill their host. Jasper is undergoing heartworm treatment method which consists of a combination of ivermectin and doxycycline.

The cost to treat heartworms seems to go up each year as the cost of the medications to do so increases, especially the doxycycline. Thank you for supporting his treatment!

UPDATE: Jasper has been adopted!

Estimated cost: $1000

Duchess

Our sweet senior girl, Duchess, had to have emergency surgery on Sept. 23 when she bloated. Danes are perhaps the breed most prone to bloating. Thanks to her foster parent knowing what signs to look for, she was rushed to the emergency vet and had a successful surgery. She developed some aspiration pneumonia, but that was caught early. She was treated during her hospitalization and made a great recovery. She is now back in her foster home and doing very well!

The emergency surgery, pneumonia treatment, and hospitalization cost nearly $3000. We are appreciative of donations of any amount to help offset these expenses.

Estimated cost: $3000
