  1. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    So, so happy for Boi Boi and his new family! He's in my thoughts and prayers right now and I'm keeping all paws crossed that the surgery goes smoothly and quickly. I hope he has a quick recovery and can get used to all the lovin' he has to look forward to! Courtney, thanks for taking him in and giving him a furever home! Now he and your daughter can "grow-up" together and be best friends! Keep us posted we are all waiting to hear how he does! Sheila

Now he can have his surgery today and be all ready to have a very Merry Christmas with his new family!! Angels, this is the best news ever and makes me so, so happy! What a wonderful feeling, to be a part of saving a life! I've said it before, but it never gets old: IMOM ANGELS ROCK!! Well, time to go have my cereal and bananas! Sheila

  5. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    Angels, I just got home and finished dinner and saw this wonderful news. But we still have a ways to go! Boi Boi (isn't it cute that he knows he's a "good Boi" and responds to his new name??) can have surgery TOMORROW if we just raise the rest of our goal! There is a matching challenge going on right now, so shake those pants pockets, check the jacket pockets and look at the bottom of the handbag! Those dimes and quarters really matter in a MATCHING CHALLENGE!! That $1 becomes $2, $2 becomes $4!! We are so close Angels! If you can help Boi Boi and donate, please go to: http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Please be sure to indicate Boi Boi Etheridge when making your donation. Please continue to post on your social media pages about Boi Boi and let's get him into surgery tomorrow! Thank you, Sheila
  6. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    What a sweet story and a lovely name for such a loving dog! Angels, we can't have Boi Boi not be there for this little girl! They can have a nice long life together and be best buds if Boi Boi can get his surgery! PLEASE if you can make a donation (of any size) to keep this family together! How sweet that this dog recognizes his new name! Can you imagine how he feels knowing love, probably for the first time in his life? He has scars that have healed, so he's been injured before, now he has found the love of a family who wants him very much! Please, if you can donate to Boi Boi, go to: http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Please be sure to indicate Boi Boi Etheridge when making your donation. Thank you Angels, we really need to make this happen right away! Sheila
  7. Swirlie And Max Ortiz - Special Needs Cats -

    Dear Bibi, I am so sorry that you and Max are going through this. I hope that soon you find the right meds for him and that he's back to his usual self in quick order. Sorry that he doesn't like to dance, but I'm sure he has other charming qualities that make him unique and loveable all the same. Take care of yourself and of Max. Sheila
  8. Mister Hinovic - Cat with Diabetes

    What a wonderful Post! So glad to hear that Mister had himself some turkey and that he enjoyed a quiet evening at home. My George tried to "steal" the turkey off of the cutting board, but he only got a little "nibble", but that was enough. Fortunately, we didn't have any guests so, nobody had to know that George "taste tested" the food before it was placed on the table! LOL It's warm here today in NYC, but we're expecting snow or snow showers this week-end! Take care, Mensura and Mister! Sheila
  9. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    Angels, I know this is the holiday season and we all have things we can do with our money, but what better way to honor the season than to SAVE A LIFE! Boi Boi (Courtney, where did you come up with his name??), is in pain and his pain meds have been depleted! More importantly, he can develope sepsis and this can be fatal! He would die a terrible death! Please if you can donate, go to: http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Please be sure to indicate Boi Boi Etheridge when making your donation. Courtney has committed to saving his life, by takin Boi Boi in, can't we make the same commitment by making a donation? Please also, continue to share his story, the more people who hear about this loving pet, the more chances we have of saving him! Thank you! Sheila
  10. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    Thank you, Elwen! IMOM Angels, here's a matching challenge for Boi Boi!! Now your donations count more than ever! Because your $1.00 donation becomes $2.00, $2.00 becomes $4.00 and so on!! Now is the time to take up that collection for this sweet-natured boy, who probably escaped a horrible existence before he found Courtney and her family! Come on now, let's see some donations come in and you all take Elwen's money! If you are able to help, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Please be sure to indicate Boi Boi Etheridge when making your donation. Thank you Angels!

  11. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    Have you seen the pictures of this poor furkids feet and legs? How could someone hit him and leave him in the street? He is a very fortunate boy that he found a new Mom to take him in and who wants to make him well. He has also been fortunate to find a vet who is willing to treat him (at a discount) with all the damage that he has to his leg! It is a miracle that Boi Boi survived the accident, but we need a "Holiday Miracle" to get the life-saving surgery he so desperately needs. The facts are, if he gets sespis or necrosis sets in, there is very little that the vet will be able to do for him. To be so close to being saved from the "jaws of death", and to finding a "furever" home, only to be stopped by a lack of money would be a true tragic event. Please, help Boi Boi get his new leash on life! Maybe you could take up a collection at work for him. Just think, someone's spare change could mean the difference between life or death for this sweet boy! Please, let's not lose this sweet Pittie! If you are able to help, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Please be sure to indicate Boi Boi Etheridge when making your donation. Thank you so much, IMOMers! Sheila
  12. Boi Boi Etheridge needs his leg amputated.

    I have decided that I am the Grinch this year because it truly doesn't "feel" like Christmas. But what we need here IMOMers is a true Holiday Miracle!! We are asking you for a whole lot of money in a short period of time. But Boi Boi needs us, and needs us fast. Of course, we don't usually ask you for money unless it's needed right away, but this is a true, life or death emergency. If we can't reach our goal, Boi Boi will be put to sleep. Simple as that. What a tragic thing it would be for this magnificent being to be so horribly treated (hit by a car and left to fend for himself), then grabbed from the jaws of death, only to be put to sleep because of money issues. I do know it's the Holidays and there are gifts to be purchased, and houses to decorate, but there is a life to be saved as well. If you can help with ANY size donation, please go to: http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Please be sure to indicate Boi Boi Etheridge when making your donation. If you can't donate money, then please, please share this fellow's story on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or whatever social media sites you go to. The more people who read his story, the more chances we have to raise the funds we need. Thank you IMOMers! Sheila
  13. Cujo Smith - REOPENED for fund raising

    I too, remember how close to death Cujo came! It does my heart good to see him with "his" boy! So happy, especially at this time of year, to know how much good there is in the world and that the IMOM Angels are there for us! Please keep us updated on Cujo and I'm so happy to see you part of the Community, encouraging others and being a source of strength for those who are scared when their "babies" need help. Thanks so much, and happy holidays to you, Cujo and your entire family! Sheila
  14. Whoopeee!! It's 5 am and I wasn't here last night to read the good news about Frankie! IMOMers, I couldn't love you more! Wow! Dancing Bananas to go with my Turkey! Yummy! Seriously, thank you all so much! I will be thinking of Frankie and his Mom when I have my "feast" today (prepared by my husband, no less) and will say a prayer of thanks for all of the wonderful IMOM Angels, cheerleaders, volunteers and families touched by IMOM. You all are just too wonderful for words! HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Sheila
  15. I can't believe I'm the only one here with Frankie right now! We need to get moving on this Matching Challenge! This is where you donations really matter, no matter how how large or small they are! Your $1.00 donation becomes $2.00, $2.00 becomes $4.00, etc.!! Now is the time to donate! Let's get Frankie to all funds raised today and then the week-end will be free from worry for his Mom and you can bask in the knowledge that you did something really great and to be really thankful for! Please, please won't you help Frankie!! He needs to get this surgery done. He has been through so much and that was BEFORE he was adopted by his mom and got stolen!! If you can help him, please go to: http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd and please note that your gift is for Frankie Portocarerro. You may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Don't forget to indicate Frankie’s name when making your donation.
