Nassau Co., L.I. NY – Abused canine stroke survivor with wheel chair needs help

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 28, 2007

Please meet Shadow. 

 
He
is sweet, loving 5 year old male Lab mix who was confiscated by the
Nassau County SPCA as a victim of animal neglect.  Although
Shadow suffered a stroke and was dragging his rear legs around on
concrete, creating open, infected wounds, his owner did not take him to
a vet.  
 
Unfortunately,
Shadow will never regain the full use of his legs due to the lack of
immediate medical attention.  However, with your help and that of a
generous donor who is having a wheel chair built for him, he will have
a chance to live the healthy, happy life he truly deserves.
 
Shadow
will be neutered and up to date on shots.  Despite what he’s been
through, he is a loving, docile soul who will make a great, loyal
companion.  He shows no aggression toward dogs, and we’re not yet sure
if he gets along with cats or has been around young children.  He has
been receiving treatment and staying at an animal hospital in Nassau
County, Long Island, N.Y.

 


 
We are looking for a caring, special person or family to foster or permanently adopt Shadow as soon as possible.  The right person will have the patience and the room to work with Shadow and his new
wheelchair.
 
Here’s how you can help:
    1.    Consider fostering or adopting Shadow
    2.    Forward this e-mail to your contacts
    3.    Print out and hang the attached flyer at your local workplace, pet supply store, animal hospital, groomer, etc.
    4.    Consider making a needed donation toward Shadow’s medical attention and continuing care
 
For additional information or to helpPlease contact Bob Sowers at gator2189@aol.com (@aol.com) or at (516) 356-2568.
 
To donate:     Please mail a check made out to “Nassau County SPCA” with “Shadow” in the memo line and mail to:

Cerebellar Hypoplasia kitten needs home (Long Island)

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 28, 2007

PERMISSION TO CROSSPOST

There is an adorable kitty that
has been abandoned at my vet’s office. Brought in by a good Samaritan,
Sally was lethargic and barely alive. He had distemper which may have
resulted in his current condition, Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Sally’s
condition isn’t severe either but nonetheless, CH. He’s been at the
vet’s office for several months now and will languish there because he
has no visibility … and he needs out of a cage. Sally gets along with
kitties and pooches and is really quite lovable. Can anyone take him
into their rescue organization or give Sally a home? Pictures available
upon request.

Please contact PAT (516-606-8855)

Chihuahua puppy w/liver shunt – Donations URGENTLY needed!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 28, 2007
PLEASE FOWARD, CROSSPOST, ETC! WE MUST RAISE FUNDS IF WE ARE TO TRY TO SAVE HYDEN’S LIFE!!
 
I
am with a pet rescue organization in Austin, TX. On August 31st, Round
Rock, TX animal control seized more than 40 Chihuahuas from a breeder’s
home. Among them was a pregnant female named Alli that gave birth just
a few days later. One of her puppies was born very small, about 1/3 to
1/4 the size of his litter mates.

Hyden
has been back and forth to three different veterinary clinics and has
been seen by even more veterinarians. At times Hyden seems relatively
normal, alert, and happy. Other times, he’s wobbly, subdued, and
unresponsive, even when his blood glucose is in the normal range.
However, regulating his blood glucose has been tricky, to say the
least, and has at times not even registered.

 
Our
regular vet now believes Hyden has a Porto-systemic Shunt but we’ve
been unable to get him stable enough for a bile acid test, which
requires fasting, and do not have the resources for other recommended
diagnostics, such as ultrasound. Due to the tremendous amount of
unexpected medical expenses for Hyden and many other pets, both our
rescue account and my personal account are far overdrawn.

 
Hyden
is now 12 weeks old. He stopped growing at 8 weeks of age and weighs
only 6.75 ounces. Given his size, I am not sure surgery will
immediately be an option but there are medications and a special diet
that could improve the quality and quantify of his life. Hyden has made
it this far, to everyone’s surprise, and has such a great spirit, which
makes this all the more heartbreaking.

 
Hyden
has required round the clock care and feedings. He is currently on two
antibiotics, a steroid and lactulose. We will be discussing a low
protein diet with our veterinarian tomorrow.
 
I
have been researching Porto-systemic Liver Shunts online and Hyden
seems to have all the clinical signs. I have been caring for multiple
special needs dogs for many years, including three hydrocephalic dogs,
and recently lost two terminally ill dogs after visiting multiple
specialty hospitals, which has totally drained my resources. I am
tirelessly trying to raise funds for Hyden and really want this baby to
have a chance at life.
 
Please consider
donating to help with Hyden’s veterinary expenses. These donations will
only go toward his future diagnostics and medical treatment. Right now,
we can only accept donation via snail mail but will be asking our
regular veterinarian ( www.morellivet.com)
about the possiblity of donations being made directly to the vet
clinic. He will, however, need to see a specialist. Donations can be
sent to the address below and check made out to Jack’s Fur Angels of
Texas. We thank you for your support!

Marion, AR Abused Deaf Pit Bull needs a home

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 28, 2007
There is a deaf white Pit Bull at the Marion Animal Shelter in Marion,
Arkansas, who needs to get out desperately. Hope was pulled from a
shelter that does not adopt out Pit Bulls and she was beaten by her previous
owners because she did not listen to them. If you could help it would be
greatly appreciated or if you are unable to help if you know of someone who
could it would be great. I am attaching her Petfinder page. Thank you
again.

Marion,
AR

MarionAngels@yahoo.com


She is approximately 6 months old. We rescued her from a shelter that does not allow Pitbulls to be adopted out…

It is not like we don’t have enough dogs of our own, but our shelter
director took one look at Hope and could not stand to give her a chance
at the life she deserves.

Hope’s previous owners could not understand why she wasn’t listening
to them….so they beat her…well, it was not that she did not want to
listen, it was that she could not hear them, because she is deaf.


Despite her unhappy beginnings, Hope is the sweetest, most loving girl you can imagine.

Hope needs a special person who can teach her hand signals and other
methods used with hearing impaired dogs. She does not belong at a
shelter and would do best in a home with at least another (well
balanced) dog so she can learn a routine.

Please do not overlook Hope because of her breed or handicap – this
is one special dog. She deserves love and a warm bed! Please call Joan
at 870-739-1145 if you have room in your heart and home for Hope.

Murphy, NC. – Sweet dog needs help!! – Deaf Dalmation!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 25, 2007
This is Dalma, she is the
sweetest, most energetic, smart, loving, and fun dog you will find in the
shelter.


She came in about 3
weeks ago…and everyone saw high adoptability.  She has such a sweet
personality and loves everyone.  She knew handsignals, and responded mostly
by watching people and their body language. The shelter employees suspected that
she might be deaf at first, but after a week or so of watching her and talking
to the vet we determined she is almost completely deaf. 
Being deaf doens’t make her stupid,
or untrainable.  It actually has shown to make her a better dog, because
she is always watching her handler to see what to do.


She is good with other dogs, kids, cats….and everyone!  She is
just happy about life! The front desk employee loves her so much, and goes to
the kennels everyday to play with her.  She loves her.  Sadly, she
knows what is the future for a disabled dog. She will die u

nless we can find a rescue, or a special needs
home!!  Her chances of getting out of the shelter alive are not good. 
She loves everyone, she loves life, she doesn’t understand why
she will have to die because she can’t hear.  Look into her soft brown
eyes, and tell her she should have to die, that though she has so much life to
live, and so much love to give…she should die!


She is about 2 years old, and is
beautiful.  This Full-Blooded Dalmatian is at the Valley River Humane
Society in Murphy, NC.
 
*IF you know of a rescue that can take her, so
some special person who can save her, please email me:

North Hollywood, CA. – Can you help a friend in need? – Funds needed to pay for needed surgery for a “beyond-sweet,” 10-year-old Collie rescued off the streets

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 25, 2007

I
am crossposting a plea on behalf of my friend Lisa Raveen, who is
trying to raise funds to pay for the needed surgery for a “beyond-sweet,”
10-year-old Collie that she rescued off the streets of North Hollywood two days
ago.


 
When Lisa found the dog (now being called “Baby”), it
appeared she had been on the streets for quite some time judging by her matted
fur, and the huge growth (sarcoma?) on her right front leg (seen in the
photo below).  Lisa took Baby to a groomer, and to her vet who advised
removing the growth in light of the obvious pain Baby is
in.
 
Baby is scheduled for surgery this Monday at the
Pet Vet, which estimates the cost to be approximately $895.25.
  Lisa
has already paid for a full blood panel and a CBC, that all came
back good, as well as having her de-wormed. 
 
 
** If you can offer a donation to help Lisa, you can do so through PayPal
at:
homesbylisa@hotmail.com  (at  hotmail.com), 
or by contacting Pet Vet at: (818)
346-2456
to arrange a donation towards Baby’s surgery.  
After a biopsy is done, she’ll learn what direction to go from
here. 
 
 
The dog is suffering, so any amount will
help.  Those of you who know Lisa know that she rescues animals
constantly, and that she always pays for everything herself and often helps
out others, never asking for anything in return.  Presently, however,
Lisa is tapped out . . . the last few rescues this month were super
expensive.  But when Lisa sees an animal in the street, she is
compelled to stop; that’s her nature.
 
 
Lisa also desperately
needs a foster for Baby, since she has nowhere to keep her

 
Please crosspost this plea in an
effort to solicit donations to help Lisa pay the cost of the vet bill and to
help this beautiful Baby find a forever
home.

Conneaut, ohio: Gracie-Lu blind pet pig still needs donations for surgery!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 23, 2007

I have been trying to raise funds for surgery for a pet pig I adopted. 
She is blind and had a stroke years ago.  After her stroke she has right sided
weakness and she lifts her right back leg so high that she has developed a
large sore by stepping on loose skin of her stomach.  The surgery is going to
cost 900.00, I have $400 now. Can you offer me any help for Gracie Lu or
direct me to where I might find help. 

Gracie can be seen on our web site Storybookacres.org. Thank you

UPDATE: 

Gracie-Lu has a Chipin Widget, and we have raised $76 Towards the $400 needed.  Please help give this family the best holiday gift possible, the ability to free their friend from pain.  No donation is to small…every cent counts!

You can donate to Gracie-Lu’s surgery fund by following the link below or visiting my website handipets.com

http://michele.chipin.com/gracie-lus-surgery

A letter from Gracie Lu’s Mama:

“Gracie’s mother was a farm pig and her father is a potbelly and farm pig. So she is large, and over 65# long. The vet says she is mix of many pigs. She was born without eyes and I believe her stroke was about 5 years ago. We rescued her after her stroke when the family called and told me that had a pig that was half dead because it wouldn’t eat. That’s why I have a farm pig living in my kitchen. I have been told farm pigs can be very aggressive but Gracie isn’t, she’s a big baby. Once her surgery is over she will be able to walk more and then her diet will work better. As it is now, she doesn’t walk very much and she just doesn’t feel good. If anyone wants information about her, please let me know. I have to smile every time I see her. She is so beautiful and adorable. Thank you so much!” Michele

KNOXVILLE TN Special needs German Shepherd puppies need homes

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 23, 2007

CROSSPOSTED…CONTACT INFO BELOW!

Greetings! 
I am working with a client that has a litter of 9 week old German
Shepherd pups that need homes.   Their background is I initially
examined and diagnosed Neospora in the litter at 5 weeks of age. 
Treatment has been initiated (Clindamycin 15mg/kg BID) , and clinical
signs were mild and limited to rigid extension of one or both legs. 
The disease is not expected to progress as it was diagnosed and treated
early.

Initially,
a rescue organization in New York had volunteered to foster and rehome
the puppies, but 8 hours before the pups were to be picked up by a
transport the organization backed out.   Ultimately, I believe there
was a miscommunication and alot of misunderstanding about Neosporosis
in puppies.

The disease in these puppies were acquired in utero,
and that is the most common (and only documented) form of transmission
from dog to dog.  Some have raised concerns that it can be
theoretically transmitted v ia feces, but it is as likely transmited
dog to dog as a pregnant woman is as likely to get Toxoplasma from her
cat! 

The
puppies are a result of a breeding for temperament.  The pups are
currently housed with the Sire’s owner, as the Dam’s owner wanted to
euthanize all the puppies.  Unfortunately, the Sire’s owner cannot care
for the pups, but wants to make sure they go to good homes.  I have a
few veterinary students who have volunteered to help temporarily, but I
was hoping someone in a different rescue group could help find these
pups permanent homes.  Here is a link to their pedigree http://www.tailsofvisions.com/greifzu.html

Although
the pups are unable to flex their stifle(s), it does not affect their
quality of life.  They know no other way of being and are acting like
happy, healthy, normal GSD puppies.  One of the orthopedic surgeons
(and GSD enthusiast) has adopted one of the pups and surgically
released some of the fibrosed muscles.  His puppy now has normal motion
in the affected limb, but I am waiting to deem it successful until
contracture free in another month.

Please
let me know if you have any questions and I can help.  If you do ask
your regular veterinarian about this disease, I also challenge you to
ask them how many cases they have treated with or without follow up.  I
have had some folks interested in the pups, but after speaking with
their vet began to reconsider due to misinformation.  I have
extensively consulted with our board certified neurologists and
pathologists here at UT and boarded therigenologists at Univ Minnesota
regarding information on transmission and prognosis.  Neosporosis in
dogs is a disease poorly understood at best, and has a prevalence of 2%
in dogs.  Thus, it is a disease many vets are unfamiliar with , aside
from experience with cattle or textbook information.

I also welcome any additional
information or first hand experiences any of you may have with canine
neosporosis.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read this email
as I know you are all very busy with other needy dogs!  I have included
pictures for those who are interested.

westernNC: PEANUT needs eye surgery-Please donate

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 19, 2007
Please donate ASAP if you can and
crosspost if you have a moment. Thank you!

 

Hi all:

 

Mary Ann Mayne and her husband, of Special
Needs Animal Sanctuary, Inc., rescued a darling senior obese blind Chow mix in
July in western North Carolina and he will live out his life there very
happily. Mary Ann has worked hard for 25 years in rescue and raises
funds for all the expenses at her sanctuary. No donations have
been appeared for Peanut’s eye surgery, however, and he is slimmed down
now so that he can safely be operated on. A donation of any
amount to this 501(c)3 at this time will be greatly appreciated.

 

Peanut is blind due to glaucoma and we can
only imagine the painful pressure from his diseased eyes. Mary’s rescue is a
501(c)3 group so contributions are tax deductible. Mary hopes not to have to
put Peanut’s surgery on her credit card. Please help this hardworking couple.
She is the caretaker for her ailing mother as well. She drives to various
fundraising events, sells inspired arts and crafts, and has on her
website a MissionFish opportunity for people to use to
donate. Peanut’s surgery should occur immediately to alleviate his pain.

 

I have the list of canine financial assistance
groups, so that is a document that is already on-hand. I am just asking
for donations now. If you are able to consider a donation for Peanut,
and/or to forward the request to someone who may be in a position to donate
for his eye removal now, thank you very much!!!


Liz in WA


 

Mary’s and Peanut’s
information:

 

http://www.blueridgedogcompany.com/thegang.html

 

 

What Can I say about Mr. Peanut.
 This precious old guy came to us in July at the ripe age of 10.
 We shaved him down due to having some serious skin issues and he looks
as good as new.
 We are working on a fund raiser to help have his
eyes
removed due to glaucoma. As you can see the pressure is bad and
this can be painful, however Peanut is a short as he is wide and would not
make it through the surgery at his current weight.

Hopefully we can get enough weight off so he can have this procedure
done in September.  If you would like to send a donation to help
Peanut, please go to our donations page. He is totally blind and has learned
the yard in just a couple of weeks. He is so loving!!!

Baby Bella – 8 Pound Dachsund Badly Beaten, and in need of Surgery to remove right eye!

Baby Bella is an
adorable 3 year old miniature Dachshund, that is in extreme pain.  Owners
suspect Baby Bella was beaten by a friend of the family. Baby Bella is in the
hospital, and will need surgery by Monday. She is in extreme pain and needs our
help.

Baby Bella’s family
sent the below to IMOM.

We
where at the store when my grand daughters boyfriend called and said to get home
quick, Belle was bleeding. We where rushing home when we got another call that
she was bleeding from the eye. When we got home Belle’s eye was bloody,
protruding from here head.  She was bleeding from her nose and mouth. 
Later we where to learn that she was also bleeding from her ear.  The
boyfriend tried to tell us that the 10pd toy fox terrier attacked her, and
caused the damage. It was obvious to the vet that she sustained “blunt force
trauma” to the head. When we left for the grocery store she was fine.  The
terrier (Tinkerbelle) had no or signs of injury. We will be turning this over to
the police.  Baby Belle will need her eye to be removed when she is stable.

She did not deserve this.  She is a tiny 8 pound miniature Doxie.
She is loving and very loyal and protective of the family.

My grandson is
bipolar and ADHD.  He has said he can’t live without his Belle, she is a
loving part of our family.  We received her from a person who did not take
care of her. She was one year old and weighted 5 pounds.  She had some of
her baby teeth still. Her breath smelled from where she had been feed cat food
all the time. We cared for her and neutered her.  She now goes everywhere
we go. She has a pouch that she travels in.  Her biggest problem usually,
is deciding which lap to sleep in.  Please help us if you can.

Baby
Bella will need surgery by Monday, therefore IMOM did not create a PIN Page, in
hopes of trying to raise funds as quickly as we
can.

Conneuat Ohio: Rescued, disabled pet pig (Gracie-Lu) needs donations for surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 17, 2007

Here is the conversation to date about this sweet pig named Gracie Lu, any donations for this sweet gal can be sent to the vet (info below) or if anyone can help to point me in the right direction for finding better cross post lists, websites, forums etc for posting this young lady it would be greatly appreciated.

Gracie Lu needs surgery on a large
growth.  The surgery needs to be
done soon because the growth is
keeping her from getting around
without pain. The surgery will cost
between $600-$900. 

We want to thank UNITED ANIMAL
NATION for donating $300 for
Gracie's surgery.  

We also want to thank Matt
Herman for organizing our candy
fund raiser for Gracie.

Matt is a student of Brandon Junior
High in Ashtabula, Ohio

**********************************

Becky, thank you so much for responding.  I checked IMOM, and I need to be a
501 first.  We have applied for it and the IRS told me I would receive my
letter by Dec 1,2007, I just haven't received it yet.  I did put a post on
chipin.org, I'm just not sure if I did it right or not. 

The vet that will do the surgery is
Greener Pastures in PA. 

Their address is  16257 highway 6 and 19
Saegertown pa 16322,
the phone is (814) 333-4241,
and the email address is
info@vetsatgreenerpastures.com.

I know to most people pigs are not companion animals but she is to me.  Our
website is storybookacres.org.  We serve only handicap or abused animals
(farm and domestic) We don't breed and we don't adopt animals out.  Our
animals live out their life here where they won't ever be hurt, go hungry or
be abused again.   I really want to thank you for helping me.  I will make
sure Grace has her surgery it's just with so many this surgery is more than
we can afford. The kids in the neighborhood are selling candy for me.  We
have never asked for help before, our farm is funded from my husband's pay
check, so I'm very new at asking for help.  Michele


Katie sweet deaf Pit Bull girl needs your help

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 15, 2007

Donation link: http://www.fundable.com/groupactions/groupaction.2007-11-02.7630022340/

Katie was a scared little pup who was abandoned at 7-8 weeks old. When her irresponsible breeders realized that she was deaf, and figured they could not make any money off of her, they dumped her at the local animal control facility to face euthanasia 😦

We rescued her in April 2007. Since she has been growing into an adult, she has begun to walk around more and more with her little bottom tucked under. We took her to a wonderful local vet, Dr. Hale, who found that this sweet girl was SO poorly bred that:
1) her knee bone (patella) would not stay in the socket because the socket was not deep enough to hold it
2) both of her hips are bad – her femur bones are sliding in and out of their sockets due to the same reason

Katie had her first surgery this past Wednesday, 10/31/07. Dr. Hale scraped out the socket which holds her knee bone in, and then placed a pin as well. After she has healed, he will determine if this surgery helps her hips at all. If not, she will have to undergo 2 FHO surgeries which do pretty much the same thing to allow her hip bones to stay in place.

Dr. Hale also said that this sweet girl has been in such excruciating pain, yet she has not once in her sweet young life whimpered nor whined nor complained.

Katie’s dream is to live pain free – please help me make her dream come true!! Thank you!!

NY..Deaf 2 yr. pittie living in kennel 1 yr !!. $$ running out. will DIE

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 15, 2007

This
2 year old boy, is up to date on shots, neutered, and Deaf.  He
is very
playful, loving, handsome, and understands sign language.
Antonio Such a ham!!!  Gets along with other dogs. 

Antonio
was pulled from a  high kill shelter in New York City  around 6
months ago.   He is looking for a forever home..We are desperate
to find it for him. There are some dogs who have been in boarding for too
long, and paying the bills can become a problem, and saving other dogs is
out of the question in a long term boarding situation.
Antonio chases cats out of curiosity, is a medium size dog, and does not
have a mean bone in his body. He really needs a person who has lots of
love and patience, Since he he cannot hear, commands are not so useful.
Only  SIGN LANGUAGE works for Antonio’s needs..
.Please help find him a loving home soon

Chatsworth, GA – Siamese sisters – 1 w/ no eyes – need homes

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 15, 2007

This beautiful pair of female sibling kitties are wonderful. The siamese’s sibling apparently has no eyes. She seems to have been blind for a while b/c she’s very
well adjusted.

Can we find someone to take them as a pair? They both need to stay together

There’s a transport from IL to GA next weekend-maybe transporters would be willing to go Ga to IL at same time if we can find a rescue.

Miami, FL: Kitten with birth defects needs forever home

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 15, 2007

Cross Posting, please use contact info below


Someone dumped a black kitten, approx. 6-8 weeks old at my Vets
(Miami). The kitten is safe and in good hands. I’m sure he will
receive all his shots, tests and deworming at my Vets.

Kitten has deformed back legs. Pads on feet are facing up and legs
are bent. Tail also has a bend in it. One front leg is normal; other
front leg is curved. The kitten gets around fine. I saw and held the
kitten. He’s adorable. He’s going to be a very affectionate cat.
Purrs like crazy, plays and jumps around like a normal kitten. Kitten
seems to be perfectly healthy. He can have a normal life inside a
good home.

Thanks.

NJ – Collie Mix Pup – Special Needs Priority!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 12, 2007
Hi Everyone;
 
This little boy is Tito, he is a 6 month old
Collie mix.  He has beautiful markings, polka dots on his nose and a
beautiful coat with fuzzy ears!  He is extremely sweet and loving, and
SO cute!  No one knows why, but Tito does not walk normally

He
is in a county shelter, so most likely he will not be looked
at by a vet.  He is such a good puppy and deserves a normal life where he
will be spoiled rotten and cherished.


 
Please help us give him a second chance. 
He will make a wonderful companion for some lucky person!  
 
*If anyone can help Tito,
rescue or adopter, please contact John Richardson at 
Burlington County
Animal Shelter in NJ at:
 
jrichardson@co.burlington.nj.us
(@co.burlington.nj.us).
Cross posting and outreach for this boy is
welcome and appreciated!
Kindly,
Jenn

sweet 10 month old blind Red-nosed Pit Bull has lived his whole life in
a crate with another dog in a dilapidated trailer in Pensacola, FL.

South Jersey – Placement needed for Special Needs Lab

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 12, 2007

Clayton Veterinary is trying to help one of their clients place their special needs dog and we are running out of time. The family has a child that is having some very serious surgery requiring long term care and the family feels they have no choice but to give up the dog. They are concerned about keeping up with his care and they do not want to see him in a shelter or euthanized.

Roscoe is a very active and outgoing 8 year old black lab. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccines. He is used to children and other dogs.

His disabilities are that he is going blind secondary to glaucoma and he is a vetsulin dependent diabetic.

Roscoe’s current family has gotten him through the difficult and expensive part of diagnosing and regulating
his diabetes. His blood sugar is currently regulated with 18 units of Vetsulin injected twice daily and he is adjusting quite easily to the sight loss. Roscoe’s Vetsulin and syringes will cost about $35-$40 every 2 weeks due to his high dose.

This boy has a terrific personality and we are hoping that someone will be caring enough to help us out by giving him a good home.

Please contact Pam Young, who is one of our vet assistants, at petpals@verizon.net SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!!! She will be happy to arrange a meeting with Roscoe and his family.

Columbus Ohio: Nella Rescued From Cruel Backard Breeder injured and Needs Help

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 10, 2007
Med Vet in Columbus. The number is 1-800-891-9091. The
nuerologists name is Dr.Fenner. Thanks to anyone who can help!
http://www.medvet-cves.com/
 
NELLAS BIO: Nella is a beautiful 3 year old mostly white pure
Staffordshire Bull Terrier who was rescued from a selfish and cruel
backyard breeder. She was kept in a back room run down trailor in the
dark, in a small filthy cage when she was pregnant and her babies
were sold as early as 5 weeks for bait dogs for fighting.. When she
wasnt pregnant she was chained, on several huge short chains to a
doghouse behind a junkyard among a long row of other bully breeds
this cruel man used for various reasons. She has been overbred but
was an affectionatte and caring mother. She was in severe suffering
when she was rescued. (we also saved one of her puppies) She has
healed physically and emotionally. utd on shots, and she is spayed.
She now thinks she is a lapcat. She was first owned by a lady who had
children and gave her alot of affection but gave her away to this
breeder because she moved into a smaller home. Nella listens well and
LOVES kids and curently lives with 7 other rescues of various breeds,
ages, and temperments and gets along well with all of them. She loves
to go for rides and learned to walk on a leash pretty good. She likes
to chase cats but has never hurt one and will immediately lose
interest when they stop running! She is fine with strange dogs as
long as they dont show any aggression to her (then she grumbles at
them). She has never been in any fights but has been attacked by
other stressed and suffering dogs who got loose at the breeders
junkyard. If she gets off leash she will listen to her human pack and
follow them wherever they go. She likes to snuggle on the couch when
her humans are watching tv and will fall asleep snoring loudly like
an old man in no time. Nella also loves getting kisses and hugs and
loves to kiss her humans back!

NELLAS EMERGENCY: This week she was running around in the yard fast
playing keep away ball with her puppy and another rescue pup and she
made a sharp turn and damaged her spine. She dropped and started
screamingand was unable to get up. She is paralyzed from the hip to
the toes on her back hind leg.
(Thank goodness just one leg was
paralyzed!) Her vet said she either has Fibrocartilaginous Embolism
(FCE), or Intervertebral Disk Disease, either way she needs to see a
neurolosit and then get an MRI asap. Her vet visit wasalmost 200$
which was almost all of our funds for all the dogs here in our area.
To see the neurologist, in Columbus, it is 125$ just for him to look
at her and nothing else. The MRI is between 1700$-1900$...We didint
even ask how much surgery for either option was...One hurdle at a
time....We are starting a fundraiser to get her to the neurologist
and for her MRI. We need to know what is wrong so we can work on her
future and make sure that she will be okay..or whether she wont be
okay. We are worried it might be a perm damage and she may be in perm
pain. We just need to find out as much as we can as soon as we can
from this nuerologist. She has been through enough in her life. She
has to be crated and it is hard to do that considering her past
crating experience...She is starting to get depressed and Im worried
about her going downhill. Please repost to anyone you think might be
able to help her.

Anyone who wants to donate for her (125$)
consultation with the nuerologist and the (1700$-1900$) MRI can
contact

Med Vet in Columbus. The number is 1-800-891-9091. The
nuerologists name is Dr.Fenner. Thanks to anyone who can help!

PLEASE HELP KATIE- Katie’s dream is to live pain free-please help make her dream come true!!

Katie was a scared little deaf
girl who was abandoned at 7-8 weeks old
.  When her irresponsible
breeders realized that she was deaf, and figured they could not make
any money off of her, they dumped her at the local animal control
facility to face euthanasia.

Chicago: Blind & deaf Australian Shepherd needs a new family

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on November 10, 2007

CONTACT INFO:

For more information on adopting Magoo, please contact
PAWS at 773-935-PAWS (7297)

http://www.pawschicago.org/


Magoo
Needs a Home!




Magoo is a very happy & healthy, 12 year old Australian Shepherd
who was born blind and deaf
. But he doesn’t know that! He was dumped
in a horse barn and found by a very nice young man named Paul who
decided that they were a match and took him home and loved and cared
for him for 12 years. Unfortunately, Paul passed suddenly at the
young age of 42 so his family brought Magoo to PAWS Chicago knowing
he would be well cared for and that he would find a wonderful home.

Magoo has had a good life, he has lived with dogs and cats and loves
everyone – he just may need a reminder when someone or some animal
is in his path. He is a herder, and loves to be outside exploring.
He needs some help figuring out his surroundings but then memorizes
them and gets along great. Magoo is a testament to the indomitable
doggy spirit, he loves life and is ready to show you how much there
is to love. Magoo is looking for a home where he can be loved and
cared for. For more information on adopting Magoo, please contact
PAWS at 773-935-PAWS (7297). Thank you!
