Handipets Pets In Need

Vet bills and supplies for my 2 English Mastiff foster dogs!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on October 23, 2008

I recently took in two foster dogs that were to be put to sleep if they did not find a home immediately. I am working through Dave Ramsey’s debt reduction plan and have very little money to use on them, but I felt that I needed to stop two wonderful dogs from losing their life.

Unfortunately both girls are senior citizens for Mastiff’s(6-8 yrs old), and both have serious health problems. Libby, the first girl is suffering from Cushings disease and also kidney failure. She needs medication and immediate help from a specialist to start living comfortably. She was kept at a puppy mill for a large part of her life, and now she needs some help! She is also partially blind after suffering with entropic eyelids her whole life and needs surgery to repair them to stop future pain.

Willow is my other beautiful foster girl. She has a torn ligament in her left front leg, and severe athritis in her hips and hind legs. She is also starting to see deterioration in her hind end due to pressure on her spine. She needs surgery on her front leg, supplements and medication for her other problems and time in a rehab facility. This is the sweetest dog you could ever hope to meet and she needs help!

Please if you have the ability to help at all, anything will help! They are limited to only $300 each of care from the rescue I am fostering them for, and they have already surpassed that limit. We need approximately $1,500 to take care of the surgeries, medicine and rehab for these beautiful dogs.

God bless everyone for reading this, and please help if you can! If you can also pass this on to others I would greatly appreciate it!
