             ****DONATION UPDATE:  ALL FUNDS RAISED*****

Calling all Angels,

Vapor is a handsome 11 month old Deaf Bulldog/Pittie mix with an intestinal blockage. He ingested a coin or stack of coins. The vet tried to induce vomiting with no success.

Surgery must happen on Friday to save Vapor's life or he will have to be euthanized due to lack of funds. His owners have already exhausted all their funds on the emergency vet visit.

This blockage is very dangerous, the coins will corrode and become toxic. We have no time to waste,  we have to get this fur kid into surgery tomorrow.

Donations of any size can be made HERE Please mark your gift "GF- Vapor  Grohman"  

Remember if you cannot donate, please pass Vapor's story on to all your friends and share him on all your social networking sites.

Vapor's people have only had him a very short time but have already fallen in love with him. Let's give them many more years together by giving him this surgery!

As always, thank you so much for supporting IMOM and  our mission of Helping People Help Pets.

Tammy-IMOM

Please meet Vapor

I'm going to be getting all of my pictures together to show everyone my beautiful little boy! I attached another one of him for right now. He loves tug-of-war, and when he is healthy he is completely food motivated :) We are going to teach him sign language to communicate better. I am going to be on all night so if anyone has any questions please ask away. Vapor is laying on the couch right next to me, we're both here along with Stormy (Our female english bulldog) They both get along so well already.. Thanks IMOM'ers we couldn't do this without all of you!

Vapor now has $100 in donations. We are off to a good start.


Stephanie, he is simply adorable. It's so wonderful that you opened your home to him. How did you come up with his name?

I am partial to the deafies, as I own 3 deaf Dalmatians.

Come on Angels, let's get this sweetie his surgery tomorrow.

Thank you all so much!

His first name was Dunkin, and then Baby. The previous owners had named him that.
He is only 11 months old, and I know they suggest not to change names unless he was abused,
but I figured since he was already deaf, we could change his name.
It was between Tundra or Vapor, since he is all white.

Vapor won in the end though!

He is such a sweet heart, I don't know a single puppy like him in the world.
He is mommy and daddys baby!

I think adopting/rescuing deaf animals is an amazing thing to do, Tammy. This is my first deaf pet so I am learning but we are willing to go to any length to make him a happy puppy!

I wish I could help out financially, but I am still recovering from our emergency with Molly. I did spread the word on my Facebook account so hope that helps out.

Good luck and hope Vapor makes a full recovery.

Donation Update:   $155
has been raised so far for Vapor. Thank you so much to all who have shared your loved and donated.


Come on Angels, I know we can get closer to our goal and get this boy into surgery today. Every donation no matter what the size can make a difference to this little boy.

If you can send in any amount visit DONATIONS Please mark your gift "GF-Vapor Grohman"

Remember just because you cannot donate, does not mean you cannot help. Spread Vapor's story far and wide to all your e-mail contacts, ask them to share, if you use facebook and twitter, post him there too.

Do you know Bulldog or Pittie lovers? Share Vapor's adorable photo's and story with them.

Let's get this baby to all funds raised!

IMOM angels...this little guy NEEDS US and he needs us NOW...

He has been saved by a wonderful couple that love him...he is DEAF and they are planning on teaching him sign language...

Let's GIVE HIM THAT CHANCE to learn and be a happy boy again...

Vapor didn't know that he was doing something wrong when he was those shiny coins...now he's in trouble...big time...

We are off to a start but have a ways to go to get him into surgery...Vapor's Mom is busy online applying to other organizations to get help...let's see what we can do to help...PLEASE...if you can't donate, that's OK...PLEASE CROSS POST this story to others and ask them to do the same...

Doesn't Vapor deserve to have a chance at being in a loving home???  Did you look at his sweet photos???  Judy

Also get a phone call into your vet to see if they are a member of AAHA...if they are they can apply for a one time grant to help out a needy animal...ONLY THE VET can apply...not the client...so, a quick telephone call sure won't hurt...

I have sent Vapor a donation and i will match the next $250 in donations. This is a chance to get TWICE THE VALUE FOR YOUR DONATION to help little Vapor!!

This little guy needs to see his birthday. One of my babies is about the same age and I would despair to lose her. Come on, let's get donating :) Christine

Cgerrans, hi.  I wrote on the FB wall that I would match $300 in donations.  I'm donating now so if you want to match $250 of that, that would be super!  Someone can verify my donation, right?

Just donated $300.  I rarely donate this much to one animal but returned a purchase to do this.  I feel very strongly about getting him help.

Christine, I understand that attitude.  This morning I was looking at some stupid clothing purchase I made the other day and just thought that it would not make me happy or change life significantly but donating to Vapor would change a life. Done deal.

Just wondering the same thing???

Also...I just saw this on IMOM wall on Facebook

Someone on Facebook is asking to make a donation directly to the vet clinic...they would like the name and telephone #...she says she can only donate that way...

I am guessing that they also need to give them Vapor's name to make sure the funds get to the right person....

THINGS ARE LOOKING UP FOR VAPOR!!!  YAY RAH.....Judy
