Almost there! Only need a little more! Tess the Mastiff needs Surgery

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation for Tess’s care

$1370 out of $1400 has been raised so far!  We must reach 100% of the goal before the funds are released.  Please help reach that goal…It’s so close!


WE
ARE IN NEED OF FINANCIAL HELP FOR TESS. Tess is a permanent foster of
Tiny Paws Wet Noses (a 501c rescue organization), living with the
wonderful family who rescued her.

Tess is a nine month old Old English Mastiff female. Tess is
missing her right front paw because the umbilical cord was wrapped
around it, resulting in the need to amputate the paw at six days old.
She was rescued before she could be taken to the shelter by her
breeder, who “didn’t want to spend any more money on her”. Tess has
amazed so many with her strong desire to do just about anything. She is
beautiful inside and out, and the most loving and happiest dog. Tess
has a way of charming her way into everyone’s heart. She plays
beautifully with dogs, from lying on the floor and gently playing with
a tiny dachshund, to rough- housing with the big dogs. She’s gentle and
sweet with every person she meets, from the tiniest infant on up. She
has successfully completed the Family Manners and Intermediate classes
at the Canine Connection Dog Training, where her foster “mom” is an
instructor, and is ready for her Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog
tests.

About her surgery…

Tess first saw Dr Melvin Pond for an Orthopedic consult in August
in which several different options were discussed: amputation of the
leg, leaving things alone, and the possibility of a prosthetic implant.
As Tess grows larger every day (now over 100#), the strain on the rest
of her body (although not her attitude) has become obvious. Her stub
occasionally bleeds from walking or running too much and we try to
avoid pavement as much as we can.

Tess recently went back in to see Dr Pond and his staff to see
what they could suggest as the best option, due to the fact that she
has tripled in size since our last visit. Dr Pond and his staff were
pleasantly surprised to see good elbows and bones on her X-rays and her
strong will to make the best use of her shortened leg, so it has been
decided that Tess would be a great candidate for the implant. Plans are
currently in the works with the implant company and Dr Pond is working
out an estimate for her surgery.

1/25/07 update

Dr Pond and the implant company met this weekend the grand total
for the surgery is going to be between $6500.00- $7000.00 She will have
to be spayed before and will be getting up a cat-scan for her soon. We
have raised enough money for the CT scan ($650)plus, but nowhere close
to the surgery cost.

2/5/07 Update

Tess had her CT scan and charmed everyone at the vet’s office. She will be spayed 2/20.

2/22 Update-

Tess is recovering from her spay surgery. Thank you so much for
your continued donations past our original $1000 goal for this drive-
we’re still several thousand short of what we need for the surgery, but
very optimistic that wonderful people like you will continue to help.
We’ll update our goal amount to keep things going.

Remington is a Rottweiler in need of double Entropia surgery.

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 26, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation for Remington’s surgery

Entropia is a condition where the eyelid turns in, scrapes the eye
causing an ulcer and infection. The surgery is $1,100 but if we can
only get enough for one eye, we will use it for the eye in risk of
losing sight.

Remington has had this condition his entire life but only in recent
months has it become an issue and of course, these things seem to
happen at the worst possible time financially. He has suffered in
silence for weeks while I try to find a way to make it all better.
Remington is a gentle dog and together we have changed many peoples
negative view of this loving breed. I work as a waitress so my living
has always depended on the generousity of strangers, so I know you are
out there and we thank you in advance.

My Pet needs your Help for surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 26, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation to help Marley

A
week ago, my 6 year old American Bulldog, Marley, was diagnosed with an
ACL injury to his right leg that requires surgery. This same dog
underwent cancer surgery in the Fall of 2007 and did quite well. His
litter-mate/sister, Roxy, had 2 ACL surgeries that cost me a lot, but
they are part of my family and we didn’t hesitate to spend the money.

Depending on what the orthopedic surgeon decides, the surgery could
cost anywhere from $1500-$2500 for the standard ACL; $3,000-$3,400 for
the TPLO single plate; and approximately $3,400-$4,500 double plate
TPLO would cost. Due to his size and muscle mass, it is most likely he
will need the TPLO surgery.

Unfortunately, due to the previous surgeries for the illnesses and
injuries to Marley and Roxy, coupled with a recent divorce, finances
are tight. These dogs are our family and we will do anything for them.
We are hoping that pet lovers will understand our circumstance and help
us get the cash we need to repair his torn ACL, as his surgery is
tentatively scheduled for the end of March.

I set my goal at $500 because it would be a big help I would like
to raise more then that to cover the entire cost but any amount will be
a big help for Marley.

If you would like more information or are interested in helping,
feel free to contact me via email at HelpMarley@sc.rr.com. If the
donations received exceed the cost of the surgery, it will be donated
anonymously to the local animal shelter.

Soaker-T needs your help!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 26, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation to help Soaker-T

Soaker-T
is an Olde English Bulldogge who was originally purchased for breeding
to “pay the mortgage” and is an OTI because he is cryptorchid and
requires surgery to correct this. In addition, we recently found out
that Soaker-T has hip dysplasia. He is not even 3 years old yet and is
uncomfortable when he sits. He is well-mannered and gentle, but has
snapped when his rearend was swatted by his former person. Soaker-T
will need therapy and medication for quite some time until it is
decided whether or not his hips will require surgery to correct this
condition. Soaker-T appreciates any donation, no matter how small to
help him get the surgery and therapy he needs.

Sally,
is a Border Collie/Samoyed mix. She is vivacious and playful. She loves
all people and all animals especially her wonderful brothers and
sisters: 2 other dogs and four cats and a bird. All rescues She loves
her mommy most of all.

Sally started to limp about four weeks ago. I took her to the
veterinarian when the limp was getting worse not better and got the
terrible news that she had osteosarcoma (bone cancer) on the upper part
of her left front leg. The vet says her lungs and other organs are
clear riight now but that this is a highly aggressive kind of cancer
and her leg and shoulder had to be amputated immediately. She had her
surgery on January 17, 2007 and started her first session of
chemotherapy on February 3.

I borrowed all I could out of my 401K for care of my Sally which
covered her surgery and the first chemo treatment. February 7th I lost
my job of 21 years and am desperate to get the funds together for what
she needs to live. Pleaase help me to help my girl to have her chance
to die of old age instead of cancer.

Now after all this I found out yesterday that my bird Tidbit has
cancer also….Please make a donation to save both their lives..

I am getting many requests to send checks instead so if you prefer
you can send a check directly to the veterinary office where Sally is
having the chemo done

** PLEASE BE SURE TO NOTE ON THE CHECK THAT YOU ARE DONATING FOR

Help Valentino (Rescued Chihuahua) Get His Leg Surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 19, 2008

Valentino is an
adorable little 1-yr old Chihuahua who was rescued from the Harbor
Animal Shelter (San Pedro) where his was a favorite amongst the shelter
volunteers. This little guy is quite a charmer (hence the name), but he
has an old leg injury that needs to be repaired so he can walk right
again!

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation for Valentino

$160 raised so far!

Before coming to the shelter, Valentino had broken his leg as a pup and
his previous owners never took him to the Vet to get it fixed (can you
imagine… who would let their puppy stay in that condition for all
those months?). Now Valentino tries to walk with a wobbly, crooked leg,
but really needs corrective surgery so he can have full use of it
again.

Thanks to a caring Vet specialist, leg surgery will only cost
$500 (a surgery that would otherwise cost $3000!). It was too good of a
deal to pass up, so we are collecting donations. So please help spread
the word 🙂

If you would like to make a donation, it will all go towards Valentino’s surgery .
If you do not have PayPal, you are welcome to send a check payable to ‘Dogs Without Borders’ to:

Please help raise funds for Kitten Veterinary Surgery

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation to help this little one

$60 has been raised so far!

About a week ago i found a kitten in the parking lot of a middle school
by my house. She was up inside the engine of a truck. I saw her come
down and then i went over to see if i could pick her up. she was very
sweet and friendly and came right up to me. After i took her home i
discovered she had a limp so i took her to the humane society and put a
hold on her if the original owner didnt come forward to claim her
because shes super sweet and i wanted to keep her. So today i went back
to the shelter to pick her up and i took her straight to the vet for a
exam and x-rays for the leg. After the X-rays came back it turns out
she has a fracture on her right rear leg where the bone and the
ball-joint connect. we dont know for sure but she might have been hit
by a car or injured it somewhere along her journey. Its causing her a
lot of discomfort and i dont have the funds to pay for her surgery. The
vet quoted me at around 1100-1200 for surgery including a spay and all
the necessary things that go along witht he surgery.
I’ve managed to get some help from a couple people who help pay for
animals surgeries when the owner cannot come up with all the funds
needed but thats only about $200. I pretty much spent my last $200
today on x-rays and pain meds and antibiotics for her cold. So im
pretty much in a bind right now and it upsets me to see hurt animals.
especially cats.
I was wondering if anyone out there would like to help me by donating
any amount of money or have any ideas on what i could do. Anything
would help.

I know most of you would feel uncomfortable donating money to a
stranger on the internet thats why if you wouldnt be willing to do that
id set it up so you could put it straight through to the hospital where
i will be getting the surgery performed.
If anyone has questions please call me: 619-847-5598
My names Johnny

Most likely its gonna take place at:

Emergency Medical Fund for Uber’s Leg Surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 19, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation for Uber’s care

$340 HAS BEEN RAISED SO FAR!

Can you help Uber?

Uber was abandoned in the night drop box at Berkeley Animal Control
several months ago. She had a severely infected broken jaw. She was
only 7 weeks old.

We brought Uber to the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society (BEBHS)
veterinary hospital and treated her broken jaw and infection.
Unfortunately after her jaw healed, we discovered her left rear leg is
growing abnormally.

Uber needs specialized surgery beyond our capacity to fix her
injured leg. The estimated cost of the surgery is $4,000. We’ve
tried to find her a home in spite of her medical condition, but
we’ve been unlucky so far.

Uber is a sweet, likely purebred, Doberman and is crate trained,
house broken, and trained in basic obedience. She adores people and
dogs, and is spayed and up to date on her shots.

If you are interested in learning more about Uber, please contact
Mary Giuffrida at 510-845-7735 or mgiuffrida@berkeleyhumane.org. If you
have questions about your donation to the Berkeley-East Bay Humane
Society’s Emergency Medical Fund, please contact the Development
Department at (510) 845-7735 ext.19.

Please help Uber and the many other wonderful animals who, like
her, need emergency care and a second chance for a wonderful life.

Thank you!

GA.ABUSED BEAGLE.Her EYE is UNBELIEVABLE.GRAPHIC PICS. Needs help asap

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 17, 2008

Can anyone help this poor beagle mix?   She needs surgery to have her left eye removed.  She was dropped off at a spay/neuter transportation site in Burke County yesterday, (February 13th).  The guy that dropped her off said if they didn’t take her, he would shoot her.  He also left a fake phone number and only a PO Box for an address. 

She is very sweet and walks on a leash.  She wags her tail when you talk to her.  We named her Sandy. 

We spoke with local vets in North Augusta and got an estimate of $400 to do the surgery. 

If anyone can help, it would be appreciated.  She also needs a home.  Her spay and vaccines will be covered financially.  We only need help with the eye surgery fee.   Please email me if you can help.

Owner Turn-in.
Seems fairly young. Didn’t get along with owner’s other dog.
Friendly with me this morning. Already Neutered. About 40 lb. Small for
a Lab.

Dear God, somebody please get this poor, skinny, three legged young dog
out of this pound. Please. He is an owner turn in because the ‘owner’s’
other dog didn’t like him….please, you know that means he has little
to no time. I don’t know why this one has hit me so hard; maybe because
he is so skinny…or maybe I’m wondering how he lost his leg….or
maybe, because he looks like he’s never known joy, but still has a
little HOPE that he might someday. There is a transport toward Chicago
next weekend, and I’m sure we could find him transport in any other
direction if a rescue can help him, or if a good home could be found.
Even if you can foster for a while, just please, get him out of that
place….

Help needed for Jesse’s amputation surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 17, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation to help Jesse

Jesse(our 6 year old dog who is more like a family
member than a pet) needs to have her front leg amputated. 6 months ago
we had saved up enough money to have the vet look at her because her
leg was swelling and she had gone lame on it. Because of having to wait
there is no option except amputation. She can barely get around because
of the weight that she has to drag around. The Vet said the amputation
would be about $1400. In a few months, without help, I will be on here
asking for help to have her put down. My kids have already been through
the hell of losing a pet twice in the past 6 months and I pray daily
that they won’t have to do it again. Thank you for anything you are
able to do and please pray for us.

Need Help with Sake’s Vet Bills – Dog with Heart Disease and Cancer

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 17, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation for Sake’s vet bills

Sake,
a black and white Japanese Chin dog, was diagnosed in January 2007 at
the age of seven with heart disease -mitral valve degeneration- and
placed on medication. In July 2007 he was also diagnosed with canine
lymphosarcoma – an invasive cancer – in his GI tract. He underwent
surgery to remove two tumors and seven weeks of chemotherapy, at which
point the cancer entered apparent remission. In September, Sake’s heart
disease began to worsen and his medication was increased; but in
December he went into heart failure and had to be placed in an oxygen
tent for three days. Recently the medication began to impact his
kidneys as well and he went from 14 pounds to 10 pounds; one of his
owners, Elizabeth, gave him subcutaneous fluids for a week. It is now a
question of keeping Sake’s medications balanced and not sending him
into heart failure again, while praying the cancer stays in remission.
Through it all, Sake remains a gentle, playful, bouncy, loving
dog with a wag in his tail. He is always ready to flirt with a girl or
nuzzle up to a child. We can’t tell you what a special little guy he
is. He is still young for his breed and he deserves all the love and
care in the world.

Our collective medical bills (two of us are helping) on Sake’s
treatment total over $20,000 and we have never asked for help before.
His condition has stabilized, and we’d like to keep it that way and see
him jump and bark again- we’d also like to help his owners pay off
their bills. To those who know and love Sake, anything will help, $10,
$20 – just 33 people donating $30 would take us to our goal, although
we’d like to raise more- and to those who don’t- please imagine if it
were your puppy.

Lucille deaf dog with tumors needs vet care, can you help?

Lucille
is a cocker spaniel that after 9 years of giving litters of pups to the
puppy miller, she was tossed away like garbage. Now she is in our care
but needs a lot of medical care

Lucille
is totally deaf. That was confirmed by my vet. Doesn’t stop her from
being the sweetest girl I have ever known. It always amazes me that
these mill kids can be so sweet when they have every reason in the
world to be mean and angry. Lucille loves and is thankful for every bit
of good food, every pet on the head and the warm bed she sleeps in!

I WISH for help so my ServiceDog, Zeke, Could Get A Cataract Operation

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 16, 2008

CLICK HERE to donate towards Zeke’s cataract care

Zeke has had quite the life! He was an abused and abandoned dog, about
to be put down in an hour when he was rescued by a Christian
organization that trained Search and Rescue dogs. He spent two years
with them, learning obedience, agility and SAR. They say he was the
best at finding dead bodies, but then he would chase rabbits and
squirrels. Apparently that’s what he ate before being placed in a
shelter.

Zeke was retrained and became my service dog. I have myasthenia gravis
and lupus. He is primarily a mobility dog, keeping me from falling,
helping me up from chairs and he tries to make me walk in a straight
line 🙂

Zeke developed diabetes in 2005. I give him insulin shots twice a day
and he does well. A complication has been cataracts. He needs them
removed. I live on SSI disabilty and cannot afford that. I’m hoping
someone can help Zeke see well again. He certainly deserves it! Zeke is
a wonderful service dog, loved by all that meet him. It would probably
kill Zeke to retire him. He is an Australian shepherd with a strong
drive to work. He has many good years left.

The two pages of pictures are from when we lived in an underground
house on an organic farm in Vermont. Now Zeke, Aleka the cat and I live
in an apartment in Lakeland, Florida.

I WISH for Financial Assistance to Help With Vet Bills For My Sick Kitty

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 16, 2008



CLICK HERE to donate towards Bandit’s vet care

I am a disabled individual on SSI, who has been struggling monthly with
what the system provides. I have a wonderful 12 year old companion
kitty, Bandit, who has been diabetic for the last 2 and 1/2 years. He
has been up-chucking his food every now and again recently, and needs
to be checked out by a Vet. [He’s previous one is no longer with us].

I very much need your kind financial assistance in being able to get
Bandit a thorough Glucose panel [involves all day testing], complete
blood panel and tox screen, with liver enzymes, UA testing, possible
fecal testing; and whatever else a new Veterinarian would require, plus
medications.

Bandit means the world to me, and is more than just a pet. . .he’s
therapeutic value is invaluable, and truly is beyond description.

Bandit is my Baby; and because of huge Emergency Vet Hospital Bill
[over %3,500], I often due without basic necessities, to make sure he
is taken care of, and the huge monthly payment is made. It is hard,
what with two mortgage payments, Prop. Taxes, Prop Ins., Car Ins., meds
that are not covered…and the list goes on.

Bottom line is to get my Baby seen and evaluated; re-adjust his insulin
if necessary, a ‘good’ special diet that agrees with his tummy, and all
the other things he needs to manage his diabetes, so there will be more
happy, healthy, mischievous years left in my BBB![Big Beautiful Boy]

Thank you for reading. And, I want you to know I most greatly support any help you can offer!

I WISH for help with chemotherapy costs to save a dogs life

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 16, 2008

CLICK HERE to donate towards Grumpy’s vet care

For the past few months my daughter’s dog has been receiving
Chemotherapy for lymphoma. He is an amazing dog who in October was
given 3 months to live. With treatment that started Jan 2 he in now in
remission. He stands a really good chance to live only if we can keep
him in remission. As of right now that does not look like it is going
to happen. Our funds to treat him have run out. We had more money saved
for him but another dog that my daughter rescued got sick and passed
kennel cough through all our dogs. That meant taking 4 dogs into the
vet for treatment. Gumpy’s next treatment is next week and I just don’t
think I can find the money to pay for it. His treatments are $114.00
each. He has had 5 treatments so far. We have also paid for all the
tests and other care that he needed that have totaled close to $1000.00
already. Gumpy is only 5 years old and is finally seeing what life
without abuse and illness is all about. He is also teaching us the
meaning of fight to live.. Through all this he has also continued to do
doggie sports and my daughter and him are using his battle with cancer
to raise funds for the Chase Away K9 Cancer fund. I just hope that we
can find a hero(s) that can help him just one more time and he can
continue to fight for his life. If anyone also wants to make sure this
is real please message me and I can give you the vet’s information.

Help Valentino (Rescued Chihuahua) Get His Leg Surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 16, 2008



CLICK HERE to pledge your donation to Valentino


Valentino is an
adorable little 1-yr old Chihuahua who was rescued from the Harbor
Animal Shelter (San Pedro) where his was a favorite amongst the shelter
volunteers. This little guy is quite a charmer (hence the name), but he
has an old leg injury that needs to be repaired so he can walk right
again!

Before coming to the shelter, Valentino had broken his leg as a pup and
his previous owners never took him to the Vet to get it fixed (can you
imagine… who would let their puppy stay in that condition for all
those months?). Now Valentino tries to walk with a wobbly, crooked leg,
but really needs corrective surgery so he can have full use of it
again.

Thanks to a caring Vet specialist, leg surgery will only cost
$500 (a surgery that would otherwise cost $3000!). It was too good of a
deal to pass up, so we are collecting donations. So please help spread
the word 🙂

If you would like to make a donation, it will all go towards Valentino’s surgery .
If you do not have PayPal, you are welcome to send a check payable to ‘Dogs Without Borders’ to:

Help my Squeeker smile again!!!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 16, 2008

CLICK HERE to pledge your donation to Squeeker

Hello,
this fundraiser is to help my cat Squeeker, aka Eurydice (because she
is so beloved by all who meet her) get her dental procedure so she can
eat, drink, and meow again. She has a fractured tooth that scratches
her tongue so she can’t even clean herself now. The total procedure is
$250 and I have $100 from my savings to get her appointed in for this
Friday the 15th of February. The vet will give me 2 weeks to pay the
remainder because I have taken her there for 5 years. I lost my job of
10 years last year as they moved abroad to save money, and had to enter
a debt counseling program which froze all my credit cards. I took a job
making $5,000 less that is 30 miles from my home to make ends meet, and
it has eaten away all I had to keep things going. I would do anything
to help her, even resort to swallowing my pride and asking for help
from complete strangers. Please, if you can help me and Squeeker, I
would surely appreciate it!

Rescue Mission for Elaine’s Foundation for Homeless Felines

Felines


A
neighborhood of social and economic problems perpetually neglected and
abandoned their pets. Often people moved away and just put them in the
yard or street. These abandoned animals were frightened, hungry,
injured and abused. And they were reproducing. I gathered these animals
and took each one to the animal hospital for medical attention and spay
and neutering. The dogs and puppies got homes quickly. Some of the cats
were also adopted. Due to neglect, a number of these cats have special
needs. These special needs animals and the remainder of the healthy
cats that have not gotten homes are in a temporary holding area. If the
animals are not out of this holding area by March, they will be
euthanized. I need two small buildings so to give the animals a home.
Each building will be insulated for the cold winters and hot summers.
Each building, including insulating it and adding plywood walls and
linoleum floors, cost $3000.00. This would be a permanent home with
caretakers. These animals were victims of abusive and neglect when
abandoned in the neighborhood. A few of the things these animals
suffered from was injured eyes, anemia from poor nutrition and fleas,
upper respiratory , hunger and fear. They are now clean, healthy, fed,
warm and safe. All is in place for them! A home and a caretaker!

Yet, they are in danger because I cannot find the people to fund
the buildings and I have run out of money due to the financial demands
it took to help them this far. I am saddened beyond words to not reach
the end result after such great efforts of hard work and financial
demands. I reach out to Fundable for help.

All donations can be mailed to: Elaine’s Foundation for Homeless
Felines, 139 Fern Ave., Lyndhurst, NJ 07071 or visit our website

Please help me make this rescue mission a success.

All donations are tax deductible.
