A special thank you to Arlington Strength & Conditioning! They raised $1500 during their lift-a-thon for Ranger and he needs it now more than ever!
Apollo Events Coming Up
Furry Friends with Medical Needs
Ranger went to the emergency clinic in extreme pain last night (7/17). We had just determined this morning that he needed to see a neurologist and were in the process of getting his paperwork together for his appt next week. We have been suspicious and now feel confident that Ranger has Hydrocephalus, which is fluid on the brain, probably caused by the trauma and inflammation from the infection in his eyes.
This CAN be treated. But it will most likely require an MRI (which can cost between $2300-3000.) and costly medication.
His incredible fundraiser (by Arlington Strength and Co.) got us a great head start on his medical bills, but I don’t know what his bill will top out at. If you have it in your heart (and budget) to donate- even if its just $5.00, it would mean the world to us and help Ranger tremendously.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support. Please donate here.
Buddy and Sam
Two puppies fighting parvo. This treatment is $600-800 per pup but they can survive. We have caught it early. Please consider donating for their care so we can save Buddy and Sam. Call into the vet at 8174676688 or donate on line here.
Teddy was saved from the shelter after severe trauma to his ears.He is still not healing even after several rounds of antibiotics. He has ears that have had a bad crop job/ trauma and have closed up, so his ear canals are no longer open.He will need a very expense total ear canal ablation. Right now he is heartworm positive.Teddy is a wonderful sweet old soul who enjoys the company of older kids and dogs his size. He likes to be part of the group and not secluded or he feels left out. He still has some years left to live and this gentle giant deserves to have his health returned and to find his forever home.
