In Dire Need of a Foster in the next 24hrs

June 25, 2010

*Please read & pass on to anyone you think might be able to help!* Rebecca with My K-9 trainer contacted me today and she is desperate for some help with her foster puppies (photo album link attached). They need a new temp foster home ASAP. Her neighbors have contacted the constable and they are threatening to take the dogs to the pound within 24hrs due to noise complaints. Rebecca is fairly certain these same neighbors may have also thrown something in the dog’s faces because they all suddenly have rashes. These pups were scheduled to be euthanized in March and a certain rescue group asked Rebecca to foster guaranteeing help with medical bills and adoptions- however Rebecca has been completely on her own since she graciously took these sweet babies in. She has spent over $500 dollars on medical care and the ‘rescue’ has left her high and dry and won’t even return her calls or emails. There are three puppies left, they are about 5mo old, are mixed breed and weigh between 13-20lbs. If you know of anyone- rescue or otherwise that could either foster or adopt one or all of these puppies please contact Rebecca ASAP at 832-266-3247. She has until 2-3pm to remove the dogs or they risk being picked up by the city and possibly euthanized. These puppies deserve better.

Foster Needed

FOSTER NEEDED (Cross-posting for Treatemright.org)
 
**This little girl was thrown over a 6 foot fence at a boarding kennel by her owner with a note attached. The owner apparently chose the “boyfriend” over her faithful dog. The note read “my name is Roxy and my mom had to give me up because her boyfriend does not like me. He said it was either me or him so my mom chose him. I hope you can take good care of me and find me a good home and not kill me”. This little girl is about 8 months old, loves other dogs and people. We NEED a FOSTER for her. PLEASE…if you can foster this little girl email me at info@treatemright.org

Please Help Save Sadi- Pooch Cancer victim

February 24, 2010

This email was sent to me by a very good friend, client, foster, and dedicated animal rescue advocate- I can personally attest that every claim she makes in this email about her rescue efforts and the care of her rescues is 100% true:

Sadi, My Lady, has been diagnosed with Lymphoma.  She is the sweetest dog and loves everyone she meets.  I rescued Sadi from living on a  chain.  When it rained and her surroundings were flooded, she stood, chained, on top of her doghouse.  I offered $50 for her which was accepted and I took her straight to the vet.  She had fleas and ticks, was malnourished and was filthy.  The tips of her ears were raw and bleeding from mosquito bites, the vet said.

Over a number of years, I’ve rescued many, many dogs.  I’ve paid for all of their veterinary needs and then had them adopted through local pet adoption agencies.  Six of them have found their home with me.  I’ve given them the best health care and nutrition that money can buy even though I’ve worked as a secretary my whole life.

After losing my job with a non-profit (which means that unemployment benefits are unavailable to me), I now find myself unable to pay the $6,000 it will cost for chemo treatments for Sadi over the next 5 months.  Had I done nothing, she would have died within 2 months.

I’m over 60 and single.  I am in desperate need of financial assistance to help my beloved baby.  Her 3rd treatment is scheduled for March 3rd…..but without help, I won’t be able to continue the treatments.  Please help Sadi.

If you can help, please send your gift to:

Gulf Coast Oncology
1111 West Loop South, Suite 150
Houston, TX  77027
with your notation reading:
for Sadi/Dr. Carreras
If you can share this email with others who may be able to help, please do so.
 
She also has a ‘chip in’ site now as well: IF YOU CAN HELP SADIE

Many, Many thanks!
