  1. Please visit, like, donate, share, and comment on these two campaigns I've started on GofundMe.com! My lab/pit had to have part of her tail amputated last Wednesday, and our newer rescue Joey needs surgery on his shoulder ASAP for Osteochondritis Dessicans. Delilah's care will come to around $1,500 before we are done treatment, and Joey's care will come to almost $5,000! I'm a single, disabled mom, and these health issues just were not in the budget! Trying every avenue possible to get help, so please pass this on to your friends, family, and contacts, at the very least! Your help is greatly appreciated.
  2. Isis is my 4 year old rescue kitty who is the sweetest feline I have ever known. I got her at a garage sale where the owner just gave her to me. It was love at first site. Isis shares our home with her two canine brothers Midas (Golden Lab-5) & Gasket (Choc Lab -5). I am very proud to donate my time in rescues. I agreed to foster an abandoned Dog that was left in the basement of a house where the tenants made a midnight move and left the 10 mo old puppy & a 40lb bag of food locked in the basement. The neighbors heard the dog barking so called the police who broke in and rescued the poor guy. I was asked to foster the poor guy and I agreed to socialize him with my dogs. All was going well for 2 weeks, until the incident. I let Mr P, out of his kennel to go potty where I would sleep with him in our finished basement her ran up stairs where the door was closed and Isis was laying on the top stairs. She was trapped and had no where to go. I and Isis are still both a bit traumatized. Mr P had her by the left back leg, I had him by the collar pulling him back wards down the stairs trying to get him to let go, He would not. By the time we got to the bottom of the stairs my husband made it downstairs and took the collar and managed to make him let go. Isis has had a tough time of it all, she has been under vet care for almost 3 weeks, we ran out of funds and could no longer afford to keep her in the clinic. Isis's injuries are localized to the leg area (she is very very lucky), she has multiple exterior fractures, interior lacerations & xrays show her bones in 5 pieces with a few shards embedded in her muscles. We have tried to raise the funds needed for her surgery, but maintenance has overwhelmed us & now we are running out of time, as the tissue is beginning to break down. Everyone just loves our sweet girl & it is our hope that we can get the funds for the amputation ASAP instead of ... well I don't know if we have any other options besides putting her to sleep because the next step in her deterioration will be far spread infection.
  3. Hi everyone, My name is Mercedes and I live in Minnesota. I have a 105lb Yellow Lab named Ely that developed a softball-sized lump on his scapula just before Thanksgiving. I took him in and they diagnosed it as a pulled muscle and sent us home with pain killers. In the past few weeks this hard mass has quadrupled in size, so I scheduled another appointment. Fast forward to his second appointment which included X-rays and it appears he has a bone fracture and the lump is a rapidly growing tumor. The vet said he may have to have his leg amputated entirely. Is anyone familiar with this type of ailment? Ely is only two years old and has been the most wonderful joy in my life throughout this time. I have no plans to put him down, but I am scrambling to put together resources to pay for such surgery.
