NEW!!! Max (Dax’s brother - see earlier post) also needs help getting to goal for his medical care. All reblogs and donations are appreciated! Thank you :)
Max is a Devon Rex that will be turning 10 in May. He came in with his brother Dax (see Dax’s other project). Their owner took them in just before Valentines to save their lives and make sure they where allowed to spend the rest of their lives together as they are closely bonded, fully aware that Dax was diabetic. She was prepared to handle a diabetic cat, but was not aware of the other health problems both cats have that where revealed during their initial vet exams. Max desperately needs a dental, but during his exam it was also discovered he has a severe heart murmur. Upon further research the owner was able to trace them back to their breeder, and found out a life threatening heart condition known as HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) is a very big problem in their bloodline, and anything requiring anesthesia has to be put off until the funds can be raised to have full heart exams and echos done by a cardiologist to make sure it is safe to put him under anesthesia. Max also has a sweet smell to his breath which could indicate kidney problems, so full bloodwork and urinalysis are also needed to rule out any more health problems. Their owner also suffered a massive reduction in her income, and is now overwhelmed at the expenses she has already put into these cats, and urgently needs help to get them all the care they need to remain healthy and happy for as long as possible. Max has been through alot - Please help him get the rest of the care he needs!!!!!
NEW AND URGENT!!! Dax is in a diabetic crisis right now and has been hospitalized. PLEASE reblog and donate if you can to give him a fighting chance. Thank you!
Dax is a Devon Rex cat who was recently rescued (with a brother named Max). His rescuer knew he was diabetic and he was quickly stabilized with just a good diet. Sadly he went into a diabetic crisis and his blood sugar is proving hard to get back under any control, even with aggressive treatment. Money is running out and it is URGENT that his owner receives assistance to continue his hospitalization and treatment. Please donate if you can, any amount toward his care would be of great help. Thank you!
NEW!!! “Lucky” was aptly named because she survived getting hit by 2 cars, and came out mainly with a horrible eye injury, but otherwise did get lucky. Please reblog her for a signal boost as she needs this eye out ASAP!! Thank you :)
Lucky is a Mini Pinscher who was struck by 2 cars in Las Vegas a couple days ago. A kind hearted woman blocked an intersection with her SUV and picked up the dog to prevent any farther damage. She wasn’t even sure the dog would live. Lucky was taken to Durango Animal Hospital and with no proof of ownership, her new rescuer decided she would keep and take care of her. But she needs some help, because the vet has estimated she needs eye removal surgery, xrays and vaccines and that all comes at a price tag Lucky’s new owner obviously wasn’t quite prepared for. We all believe members of the pet rescue community would reach out and help in this situation, since Lucky gets a second chance at life. Please share and donate if you are able. Thank you!
NEW!!! Please give Thor a reblog and/or donation so he can be free of pain in his eyes. Thank you! :)
Thor is a Rottweiler who just turned one year old. His owners didn’t have enough time to give him, so he is now living with a foster mom. The first thing his foster mom noticed is that his eyes bothered him all the time. It turns out he has bilateral entropian disorder, which is basically where the lashes curve in and rub on the eyes constantly. It causes discomfort and, in many cases, can lead to blindness. Thor’s new mom needs help paying for part of the surgery. If anyone is able to contribute, or at the very least share him, that would be great. Thank you! http://fundapetmiracle.com/projects/canine-eye-surgery2/1167
NEW!!! Paris needs surgery to help her walk and play again. Can you please reblog or possibly donate to get her to goal?? Her family would really appreciate it. Thanks!
Paris is a 7 year old chiweenie. On Friday night April 3rd she suffered a ruptured disc in her back, she was rushed to the vet on Saturday morning and they started her on meds to help reduce the swelling and was put on crate rest. By Sunday morning she had lost use of her back legs and was rushed to the emergency vet hospital where they kept her overnight and started her on IV steroids and morphine for pain. She was released on Monday morning to her regular vet where they admitted her and continued steroid therapy, she gets shots multiple times a day. This continued until Thursday. Along with the paralysis in her back legs she has also lost bladder function and has to be manually expressed. She has shown no signs of improvement and the vet is recommending surgery as the only option that will allow her to walk again. The surgery is extremely expensive, and her owner cannot afford it on her own. She has put $1000 toward her care already this week and needs urgent help. Please help by sharing and/or donating if you are able. Thank you!
HELP!!! Shakira is back as well - she has MUCH medical care still ahead and the rescue needs your support with her. Can you lend a signal boost by reblogging? Even better, pitch in $5 or $10?? Thanks in advance!
Sweet, beautiful Shakira was abandoned at the shelter, pregnant and scared. WSKR rescue was able to find a foster and get her out to safety. Days after she was in foster, she miscarried her 3 very premature babies and became depressed. Two days later, she refused to eat or drink and was rushed to the emergency vet. It was discovered she had an infection and was very dehydrated. Intervention was needed to save her. This unexpected vet visit set this small rescue group back financially at a time when they are facing money challenges for two of the other rescue kittens to get eye surgery. Please help WSKR cover the cost of Shakira’s care so they can afford to save others like her! Thank you!
HELP!!! Aiyana is back because we still haven’t raised enough to get to the bottom of her seizures and heart issues. Please reblog this sweet service dog!!! Thank you :)
Aiyana is an Italian Greyhound and a loyal service dog and companion dearly loved by her disabled owner. In February, Aiyana was near death when she went into a bad cluster of seizures, and it was discovered she had also developed a heart problem. Aiyana improves the life of her owner in so many ways, and her owner wants to make sure everything possible is done to get to the bottom of her heart problems so proper treatment can begin to insure she’s around for many years to come! Her owner is living off disability and struggling to care for several special needs rescue animals in her care and really needs your help! If you are able to donate to Aiyana, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
NEW!!! Kona needs your help. Her medical treatment has been and will continue to be quite extensive. She could use support by way of donations and reblogs. Can you reach out?
Kona is a senior Rottweiler who was adopted from Nevada SPCA about a year ago. Late in March 2014, her owner noticed Kona limping and took her to the animal hospital the next day. After an overnight stay, x-rays, bloodwork, urinanalysis, and a bone biopsy, it was confirmed that she has osteosarcoma in her right hind leg. She had her leg amputated on April 2nd and is getting ready to move forward with chemotherapy treatments at a cost of $3,600. Kona’s prognosis looks good so far based on the fact that she is otherwise healthy, happy, and active. Her muscles are strong, she has a healthy appetite, and she is responding well to pain medication. As an avid rescuer, foster parent, and fundraiser in the community, her owner knows it’s not easy to come up with these funds all at once and for once she is reaching out to the opposite side of fundraising. Please help Kona by sharing and donating if you are able. Thank you!
NEW!!! Help these little girls with a reblog and/or donation! Thanks!
Sweet little sisters, Rough and Tumble, were both born with a genetic disorder called eyelid agenesis. Essentially, this means that they were born without upper eyelids. This makes it hard for them to keep their eyes from drying out, from getting damaging debris in them and even allows their own fur to come up against their eyes causing damage. These sweet loving sisters need surgery to correct this and keep their sight and ensure they don’t live life in constant discomfort. We Save Kitties at Risk Rescue found them on the rescue list at the local municipal shelter, owner turn-ins, suspected to have entropion and saved them. The opthamologist diagnosed them with eyelid agenesis and recommended surgery to correct the issue and allow them to lead a normal life without need for round the clock eye drops/ointment to keep their sight. The surgery is to happen in either late April, dependent on when the girls get big enough to withstand the long surgery required. Meanwhile, their amazing foster family is putting eye drops in every few hours, around the clock to keep them comfortable and retain their sight. Please share their project and pitch in if you are able! Thank you :) http://fundapetmiracle.com/projects/feline-eye-surgeries1/1165
NEW!!! Dorian needs a special surgery (and soon) to function in a fully healthy capacity. Please reblog him to help and donate if you can - thanks!
Dorian is a cat who was rescued from a possible dumping situation. He came with two sisters — his blood sister has a medical issue herself. Dorian is one year old, and he has been with this new owners for 10 months. He is neutered and the owners have had him working with a vet since day one. Dorian was diagnosed with feline elogated palate. It is usually seen in dogs and rarely in cats. It is essentially when the palate extends back past the tonsils, which can cause gagging and/or breathing issues and needs to be corrected with surgery. Second opinion DVM’s have confirmed that only MSU vet school can do the surgery Dorian requires. Dorian’s owners’ goal is to raise enough to help him have the surgery so he can properly breathe. Please help them by sharing his project and contributing if you are in a position to. Thank you!
NEW!!! Atillia had a life-saving surgery and has some more care ahead. Can you help him? ALL reblogs and donations matter - thank you!
Atillia is a 3 year old cat who somehow got very lucky back when a group of Siamese kittens were saved from a high kill shelter. He managed to sneak into the group, as a little ornery black cat with a cute personality. He was adopted by a senior lady who has loved him and hopes to have a long future with him. Recently, Atillia was in tremendous pain and was admitted to an emergency vet and hospitalized for 3 days. The vet urged an emergency surgery to alleviate a urinary blockage, saying that they didn’t have a lot of time and if it didn’t happen ASAP, the cat would need to be put to sleep because he could not live with the condition. His owner really needs help covering the bill, which was partly billed and partly paid for with borrowed money that they need to return quickly. Please reach out to help if you can.
HELP STILL NEEDED! Henry could use a lot of reblogs and donations. He is trying to become a service dog but has a few health challenges. Thank you for opening your heart!
Henry was a happy, healthy 9 month old German Shepherd mix, learning how to become a service dog, when he suddenly started acting unusual on Feb 27. He went to the vet the next morning and was diagnosed with hemolytic anemia, a rare condition where the body attacks and kills red blood cells. By that night he needed a transfusion to save his life. Over the next 2 days he required 2 more transfusions. Finally on Monday the medication finally started working and his PCV started rising and he was making new red blood cells on his own. The bill was very expensive as he had to be treated at Tufts Foster Hospital (emergency clinic) in South Grafton. Henry’s owner cannot afford his bill from the emergency vet. He requires weekly visits to his vet right now to monitor his blood count. His medications is also expensive. His bill totalled over $1300. They saved his life and his owner doesn’t want to be turned away in the future should she need them to save his life again. Please help by sharing Henry and donating if you are able. Thank you!
