Timber is at All Funds Raised - Donations No Longer Needed!!

Timber Sanchez is an 11-month-old Chihuahua who was in his own fenced-in yard, and he was shot by a neighbor because he was barking. Timber's leg was shattered, and it needs to be amputated. Timber's Mom has spent $135 for radiographs, antibiotics, and pain medications, and he is at home because she needs help with the cost of the surgery. Timber's vet has him scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning, but we need to raise the funds by no later than 4:30 Pacific time today, so we can let the vet know before they close at 5:00 pm Pacific. The vet said if Timber does not have surgery tomorrow morning, he will have to be euthanized.

Here is what Timber's Mom has to say about him: "When my friend called and said her dog had puppies we went over and my daughter fell in love with timber so my friend said when they are 5 weeks we could have him. So we got Timber as a therapy dog when he was a puppy for my daughter because she has learning disabilities.they have always been together and you hardly see one without the other and we couldn't imagine her life without Timber in it. The vet gave us 48 hours to find the funds for the amputation or we have to put him down.”

Timber's Mom has also written an introduction here: http://www.imom.org/...332#entry153466

If you are able to help, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation; note for Timber Sanchez. 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 Timber’s name when making your donation.

Thank you all for considering helping this poor dog.

OMG. The neighbor shot the dog? Kitty Tom was intentionally hit with a cart and now this. What is WRONG with people??? Okay, rant aside, after a brief prayer for karma being visited on those monstrous people, I put forth a $50 matching challenge. We're not letting this young pup's life be taken away by monsters! Let's show little Timber and his family that there are angels that help beat the monsters of the world!

I'll take that challenge. I just wish I could do more, but I won't have funds until this Friday. Reading that makes me so mad (and sad to see that picture that I'm crying). Chihuahuas are special to me because I have two (had three but the other got out of my fence and hit by a car last January). They would be putting my butt in jail because I would have already gone over there with a baseball bat and killed the neighbor.

First we need to get funds raised to help Timber and get him treatment.

Secondly, if you haven't already, contact the SPCA and police and file a complaint against your neighbor. I'm not sure where you live or the laws there, but discharging a firearm within city limits is against the law in my town. This needs to be investigated and whomever fired the weapon needs to be held accountable so that they don't do this again. I wouldn't be surprised if you find out they have done this kind of thing before, but no one filed a complaint or followed through. If they had, Timber may not have been injured. :(

Could the ASPCA or some organization like that get that "man" for cruelty to an animal? Doing nothing seems like a grave injustice...

I won't say what I'd like to do to that neighbor, but I'm sure you all can read my mind. Instead, since it looks like the last matching challenge has been met, I'll offer another for $50. My Chihuahuas insisted!

Jamie ~ Thank you. I hadn't read the introduction thread. I am so sorry to hear this. And, a lot of people think Alaska is wild and unregulated!!!!!! I'm thinking this town in Nevada needs to be inundated with a letter-writing campaign.
