Ebony is at All Funds Raised! Donations no longer needed!

Ebony is a very sick puppy. Ebony’s mom lives on a very small, fixed income and was couldn’t afford to take her to the vet. Now, according to the vet, Ebony’s case is critical and she needs surgery asap.

Here is what Ebony’s mom, who lives alone, had to say about her baby: “My dog is my world, my life, my companion.”

Since Ebony’s mom does not have a computer or internet access, her wonderful neighbor, Marissa, has been helping her on the forum. If funds are available, Ebony can have this life-saving surgery first thing Monday morning and Clara will be able to save her companion.

If you are able to help, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation; note for Ebony Clark. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Don't forget to indicate Ebony’s name when making your donation.

Thank you all so much!

Woo Hoo!! A matching challenge.......with a lovely graphic! :) Please Angels, donate if you can. This sweet pup is about all his mom has. Ebony is only 8 years old and they could have a lot of happy years together ahead.

Ebony's mom, Clara, does not have the luxury of internet or a computer so she is depending on her neighbor, Marissa, to help her post. Clara is trying to contact her neighbor now so that she is able to share her and Ebony's story.

In Marissa's introduction she said that Ebony is Clara's "companion, best friend, and child." Of Clara she says she is "a sweet, 60 year old lady who, even on a fixed income, always seems to find it in her heart to donate to charity, always giving."

Ebony won't survive without surgery on Monday and Clara, truly, has nowhere else to turn. If you are able to give anything at all, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd and make a donation in Ebony Clark's name. You can also donate via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Don't forget to indicate Ebony's name on your donation.

Clara and Ebony would be so very, very grateful to be able to have more time together.

Her Mom doesn't have a computer and is using a neighbor's so she is doing the best that she can posting. Please if you can, donate to Ebony this weekend, the sooner the better so we can be sure she gets her surgery Monday morning.

Ebony just not feeling so hot



Hi I am Joline and I have been a friend to both Ebony and Ms. Clara for a very long time, If there is anything you all should know about the two of them it is this...... There could not be a more deserved pair of companions to be blessed. Ebony has a very unique way of speaking without a single bark, she is so loved and she loves so many. Her owner, Clara Clark is also more than worthy of a miracle, she is always helping someone, somewhere, somehow, she NEVER asks or expects to be repaid for the things she does, and she doesn't do it for recognition either. The two of them have helped me so very much I just pray that imom will be able to pull through for them. THANK YOU ALL

Ebony smiles for the camera

When I first met Ebony, She didn't like me too much (mostly because my boyfriend Luke, was hers, or so she thought) after a while Ebony realized that I was not going anywhere, and instead of snubbing me like she had for so long, she would great me with excitement and seriously dangerous hugs. I mean, come on she is taller than me standing on her hind legs and weighed just about as much as I did! Needless to say, one of Ebony's hugs would, Literally, knock me right off my feet. :rolleyes:

Since we have to raise funds QUICKLY for Ebony, is there any chance of people getting the hat passed an extra time at church services? Sounds strange, but hey...we need to think outside the box, right?

Ebony's vet said he was giving her antibiotics and draining fluids late yesterday afternoon in order to stabilize her for surgery. If she does not have this procedure done Monday, she won't make it. Her vet says her condition is "advanced."

Ebony's mom loves her so much. If you are able to donate, please do. Go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd and give in Ebony Clark's name. You can also donate via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient and indicating Ebony's name on your donation.

The $100 Matching Challenge has been met.....and then some!!

Unbelievable!! Thank you Angels!!

I know this is a difficult case, with the owner not having a computer and not able to post. But, I did speak to Clara. She sat right by her neighbors side until she completed our online application. She said, "Ebony may not mean much to some people, but she means everything to me."

If we can keep this going until AFR, Clara and Ebony will be so amazingly grateful!

Ebony's vet spent several hours again this afternoon, dispite it being his day off, and again Ebbie seemed in higher spirits until, she fell to sleep, and is resting now. What worries me is, this morning it was a very emotional event when we tried to wake Ebbie and got very little response. She got up and eventually was as good as is possible at current.

Joline ~ If we can make a miracle happen and get the funds raised today -- I know I'm getting ahead of myself -- but do you think the vet would be able to perform the surgery tomorrow?
