Diagnosis: Ulcerated mammary masses

Amount of estimate: $2000. Applicant's caregiver can contribute $1000 and has obtained $200 from other organizations. IMOM has pledged $300. We need to raise $500.

Spayed or neutered: Yes

Case worker: Laurie

Angel is a spayed 12-year-old Black Lab who has three ulcerated mammary masses. These masses need to be removed as soon as possible.

Angel's dad is unable to post messages, but his caregiver is working very hard to find help for Angel. Not only has he applied to IMOM, he has applied to six other organizations. He is also going to make a substantial personal contribution to help Angel.

I spoke with Angel's vet this morning, and they would like to perform Angel's surgery tomorrow if possible.

The estimate for surgery is $2000. Angel's dad's caregiver will contribute $1000, and has obtained $200 in pledges from other organizations. IMOM has made an immediate pledge of $300. So $500 remains to be raised.

Can you help Angel with a donation of any size so she can have her surgery tomorrow?

To donate, please go to: www.imom.org/donation

Earmark your donation "GF - Angel Mendoza."

When making your donation, please consider a small donation to our operating fund so we can continue to pay for operating expenses.

Thank you for helping Angel,

Laurie / IMOM

we would like to share these photos of angel and her Dad [HENRY].

she has always been with him since his 10th birthday[12 years ago]

we are his guardians because his mother left 8 years ago she could

not watch her son die and come back. It was like losing him so many

times, and more of her died every time along with him. he has since endured

6 major surgries including full spinal fusion. All of these have helped him grow

more strong every day with his faithfull companion beside him. now she needs

the love and attenion she has so freely given these past many years, and my wife

and I so feel she deserves. The growth is only attached in a small area and the doctors

say she has a chance in attention is given now. I feel very bad that we can not do this on

our own but no man is an Iland to himself. So pride aside time is a hand to ask any and all make

a gift to a deserving Boy and his partner,and to the foundation of I-MOM, and declare to your friends

that this is ther christmas gift to them in their name and enjoy the true chritmas spirit that we all should share

God Bless The Pogue and Mendoza family........

Please, please donate what ever amount you can. It doesn't matter if it's only a few dollars. We cannot let this baby suffer with this huge tumor any longer.

I'm going to do a fund update and will report back ASAP.

You know that scene in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" where Linus takes center stage and ends with "That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown"?

Well, this case is what IMOM is all about.

There's no reason for Angel to continue to suffer with that enormous tumor when it can be removed surgically and the only thing standing in the way is money. And there's no reason for Henry to have any anxiety about his best buddy being sick.

Henry's guardians obviously care........ the IMOM volunteers are chomping at the bit to get this sweet dog fixed up....... and we know there are many, many caring people in the IMOM Community.

I'm getting out my wallet. How 'bout you? :)

ps) Times are hard right now, but if you think you've had a tough year, take a look at that photo of Henry and Angel again. I don't know about you, but I got no problems......

:pp_animal_568: Sent $25.00 from The Clark K9-5.

Let's get Angel and her Daddy a Christmas miracle!! I've cross posted her

plea on my Facebook page. Get the word out folks... $ 500.00 is NOT an

undo-able amount!And THANK YOU to Henry's caregiver! Without your

kind heart, this miracle wouldn't have a chance.

I just got off the phone with Angel's vet. They would like to admit Angel this afternoon so they can stabilize her and fast her overnight in preparation for surgery, which they say can happen first thing tomorrow morning. They will give Paul (Henry's caregiver) a call to let him know to bring Angel by.

To help Angel receive her surgery tomorrow morning, please click here to make a donation. No amount is too small -- it all truly does make a difference.

By the way - a friend of mine saw Angel's plea on my page and not only made a donation of her own, but also reposted!! If we all repost Angel's pic and story in our various social forums (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.) we'll get the money for Angel in no time!!

Tracy, you're a sweetie. Thank you for donating to Angel.

Kim, where have you been? We've missed you! Welcome back!

I'm sending a donation in honor of another lab who is dear to us that all we can do is love now. This is for Sydney, one of our PIN's who is suffering from cancer that seems to be running amok. I'm sure she and Charlie would want to help another Lab in need.

Anyone else want to join me?

We just dropped off ANGEL with the Vet, we took her blanket that she shares with our other two dogs

when She heard me talk to the vet it was like she knew.

She knew her pain was in the fast lane to being gone

She knew there were others who loved her

she Knew there was a light

She was ready for the

fight

I am not sure how to thank each one of you one at a time, but if I could put her owners words together it was Bah Bah Bah.

which translated means if I could kiss you all I would give you a wet one right here and now.

If you want to light up some ones christmas with no electricity give them this.

Let them know that ther is a little white beard in all of us

let them know that there is a HO HO HO in you

Let them know there is a future for all

and to all a good and blessed night.

spread the I-MOM.org cheer

Henry misses his partner already, Angel will lay at Henry's wheelchair when he is being fed

Somtimes this is hard because she is moving an already moving target [Henry must be feed]

But we both seem to enjoy the challenge, and Henry the movement.

Before this tumor started its rapid growth we wood go for walks[rolls]

tho they must be short, he has breathing problems.

they are always exciting and he dances in his

chair

Angel would dance while we try and put on her collar

like she was dancing at the vets today

and oh boy how she will dance

when she comes home

please help if not

for angel for others

and i will dance

for you thanks
