Isis is an adorable dog who was adopted from rescue when she was 1.  She has an instestinal blockage from a tumor that needs to be removed.  Surgery must happen tomorrow.  The vet stated we had 2 days to fund raise as of yesterday.  If we don't raise the money needed tonight her vet is not available again until Monday which could be too late.  Her Mom has paid for the tests need for the diagnosis but is unemployed and needs our help for the surgery.  Here are her words:

Quote

I adopted Isis when she was 1yr old. She had spent her
entire life on a chain prior to me adopting her. She has been my best
friend & I taught her how to trust people. She would do anything for
me & I feel terrible that at this time I am financially unable to do
what I need to for her to surrvive.


To make a donation for Isis please click here Donate to Isis!and mark your gift "GF - Isis Forrester".  If you would prefer to use Paypal directly, our email address for direct Paypal donations is paypal@imom.org.   Be sure to let us know who your donation is for.

Thanks in advance for you help and support for this pet.

Isis has received $140 in donations sent to IMOM.

Amy, please send an email to the committee (gf@imom.org) so we can keep track of what you still need.

Pyometra is a serious uterine infection that is potentially fatal and can occur in unspayed animals. Spay and neuter -- it's the right thing to do!

Another $50 from my cousin Lori!  Yay!

I got Isis from a rescue. She came with the name Isis. She was a crazy untrusting handful when I adopted her. She had been abused and left on a chain her whole life. The first day I had her she escaped out of my yard and ran away. I followed her in my car as far as I could but then she ran through the desert where I couldn't see her. I chased that silly dog over 7 miles. I thought she was gone forever. I felt so bad. I called the rescue and told them that I lost her on the first day.  I put ads on the radio hopeful somebody would call about her. I had no news by bed time so I went to bed sad that I had lost my new dog. When I woke up in the morning Isis was in my back yard. She had found her way back and broken into the yard somehow. I laughed and told her “I guess you choose me as your owner”.

C'mon angels we need some Magic. She needs her funds in tonight so she can have surgery tmw!

Amy, don't forget to have Isis fasting later this eve and in the morning for her surgery- even if she doesn't have all funds raised by ur bedtime. We have angels all over the country in different time zones and some that may be off IMOM for today, but will be back here bright and early to help tmw AM.

I don't know if ur vet will allow Isis to have something with her in the cage after surgery (some hospitals don't allow it), but u might sleep in an old shirt (that u wouldn't mind losing) or an old towel in ur bed tonight, and take it with u so Isis has ur scent with her while in the hospital.

Please give her a hug from everyone.

Thanks so much to all the angels who have donated so far.

I am taking her in at 9am so no food after midnight! and I will take her duck with me and see about leaving an article of clothing or something for her.  She knows help is on the way. And im glad she was able to eat today so she is a bit stronger than she has been the last few days.

Thank you thank you thank you angels. This is such an amazing thing. Looking forward to supporting in the future once I am back making some cash.

If you're taking an article of clothing, try to take the tee shirt you're eating today so Isis will have your scent with her...

I can't remember...where are you located?  We can figure out how much time we have left to fund raise...

The amount needed is SO DOABLE...Isis needs surgery tomorrow morning at 9 am their time...we have 13 hrs. to get that money.....AND I KNOW WE CAN DO IT.....

Amy, again, I say, GREAT JOB on fund raising and communicating...I know you are worrying and fretting but you're doing a great job letting everyone know important Isis is to you...Judy

I thought you had said Las Vegas...now I know that when I'm watching the clock here is Ohio I'm way ahead of you and Isis...

So glad she'll be at the vets early and all ready to go as soon as they get the word...

Here is Ohio it's after 8 pm...I've had the flu all week so I have to get to bed early so I'm semi alert tomorrow...didn't want you to think I deserted you..but I'm always a party pooper...but you can't be when 5 am Ohio time roles around I'll be the first one checking in to see how the fund raising is going...

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...I know the angels are all reading and working hard behind the scenes to make this happen......hug that girl tonight...she's a sweetie...Judy
