Thank you VivaleChat!

Caitlin, have you tried posting to the RVT boards or Facebook? Either should definitely generate interest! Make sure you include the links to this site so that every penny gets to Cyrus!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Caitlin could tell the Fortenberry's in the morning when she goes to visit them that we are say.........half way there? :rolleyes:

Good Morning Caitlin!! I can't wait to see your post after your conversation with Mrs. Fortenberry....

I wanted you to know that some of our IMOM angels are on the west coast so they won't be surfacing until later...Melissa is in California so she might still be sleeping...didn't want you to think that you're all alone here...Looking forward to PHOTOS and stories about this little guy...

When you talk to Mrs. Forenberry would you thank her for taking Cyrus in?? Judy

I just spoke with Cyrus's mom and things are going as well as can be expected at home. Cyrus's best friend is a chihuahua named Black Jack. Mrs' Fortenberry said Black Jack has really started to be depressed because he misses getting to play with his giant best friend! Every time I carry Cyrus out to the car Black Jack is eagerly awaiting his return :)

We are sharing his story on our office Facebook page and spreading the word through professional organizations but we still really need your help IMOMers!!!!

Caitlin, you're doing a GREAT JOB with trying to raise outside funding...IMOM angels...it sure would be GREAT if we could get to $1,000.00 today...then tomorrow we can work on the balance...

SHARING and CROSS POSTING is the best thing we can do...can you post Cryus's story on your Facebook Wall and Twitter about him??

This is a very special case...the vet clinic is SO ACTIVE in helping make this a success...what a wonderful thing to show people...Judy

Plus, little Black Jack is getting depressed...and we sure don't want that, do we?

We're sharing Cyrus's story on Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter page and on my pet sitting and personal page. I'll be bringing over a donation to Mill Creek Veterinary tomorrow. We're pulling for Cyrus to to have the surgery and a quick recovery, so he'll be back playing with his buddy, Black Jack, very soon!

We are working hard today and trying to get all our proverbial 'ducks in a row' for Cyrus on Friday. We have some bandage material that was donated from a doctors office that we are sterilizing (new and unused of course!) and we are preparing all the surgical supplies we need. We are getting close to our goal - let's keep spreading the word! I'll let you know what our donations amount to that come directly to our office tomorrow- we're excited!!!

OK, let's get BUSY and spread the word...Cyrus NEEDS US...he has a vet clinic that is working HARD for him...he has a pet sitter posting for him...he is on Facebook and Twitter...and the clinic is posting everywhere they can...his owners are helping with stories about their little boy...

Now...all we have to do is HELP SPREAD THE WORD...pass his story on to others, ask them to do the same...and if you can DONATE...don't think your donation would be too small...it won't be...every single dollar counts...they all add up...

PLEASE...they are getting ready for surgery on Friday...can't we make this happen?? Did you see his little face?? He was shot by his NEIGHBOR...this little dog is innocent...and he needs our help.....

I'm getting a little nervous for Cyrus...

Caitlin is doing a tremendous job posting for Mrs. Fortenberry...if you read in an earlier post she does not have access to a computer so Caitlin has taken it upon herself to HELP this family and Cyrus...

She is working and still finding time to post updates and stories...and there are people that are posting Cyrus's store on their pet sitting pages, Facebook, Twitter and other sites...

We need to get HALF WAY to funds raised by midnight tonight so we don't have to work so hard tomorrow...he can have his surgery on Friday but we need the funds...

Can we make it to $750.00 raised tonight?? Please, share this story...it's SO important for a young, special little guy to get all fixed up...PLEASE...

Please angels, every dollar will get Cyrus closer to surgery. There is a time crunch here-no amount is too small to help this sweet innocent pupper have surgery on Friday.

I have been here for nearly 8 years, and I have never seen a veterinary practice right in the thick of things helping with fundraising. Let's show them what the IMOM Magic is all about!

Hang in there Cyrus!

Hugs,

Cindy and the boyz

Cindy, you're right...I've been on IMOM just as long as Cindy and we have had some wonderful cases here and the vets of course are always wonderful...

BUT, this is a truly AMAZING VET CLINIC and STAFF...it's heartwarming to see how they are giving 100% PLUS to try to get this little guy fixed up...

I think that it sure would be nice to be able to be part of such a special case...I know that it sure makes me feel go to see what is going on in these pages...

Unfortunately I get up before dawn so I go to bed really early...the last thing I"ll do tonight when I shut of my light is to make sure that my prayers include this little guy and the people that care so much about him...

Fund update...

At the present time we have $830 in donations for Cyrus. That's a lot of money but we still need $730 so this sweet boy can have his surgery on Friday.

He has been through too much and his vet clinic has done too much for him not to go further. Please make a donation, of any amount, so Cyrus can get back to his business of being a puppy :pp_animal_568:

Click here to make your donation

And after you've made your donation please help us to spread the word that we have a young pup who needs help.

OK guys, I'm back and in full force......let's raise some money!!!

Please, skip that extra coffee in the morning, skip the fancy lunch, go for the value meal and send in those extra few dollars to help Cyrus! Please..... he needs us. The vet has sent some pretty gruesome pictures of the actual wound....but I have been hesitant to post them. Let me just say, for the record, that the wound is insanely huge and gruesome.

We want to get all the help Cyrus needs.....and we have one day left to do it. About 24 hours from right now. That is $730 in 24 hours....That is only a little over $30.00 an hour! We can do this IMOM Angels! Cyrus needs us. Please only think of him at this point....as he is the one that truly this is all benefiting. That is at least how I feel. Yes, the vet and staff would love to see him fixed too but really - this is all for Cyrus!

To donate to Cyrus, please go to:

http://imom.org/donate_to_a_pin.htm

Please designate your gift to"GF-Cyrus". If you want to donate directly to paypal you can use paypal@imom.org as the email address to donate to. Just please put in a note that you want your funds directed to Cyrus Fottenberry!

I think everyone is sleeping...... Hmmmm I sure hope we hear more stories from Cyrus's family. Libraries have internet access usually..... (just a suggestion!) It sure would be nice to hear more from either Cyrus's mom or dad.

Please, everyone, think of little Cyrus if you can. He's got a lot of folks pulling for him....We just need a few more folks to help him out.

Good Night everyone, sweet dreams and kisses to Cyrus.

Cyrus,

I have just donated the last $730.00 so that your surgery will happen on schedule. Judy brought your case to my attention and told me how everyone is working to get you to "All Funds Raised", now here you are!

I hope you are feeling better soon and back to playing with your little buddy Black Jack.

Pam

Thank you so much Pam! And to all the IMOMers who made this possible. Cyrus will be coming in Today for his surgery! We will have photos (of the non gruesome variety) to share.

With Love and Deep Gratitude,

Caitlin
