URGENT HELP REQUIRED – DONATIONS NEEDED – PLEASE SHARE
We need your urgent help tonight. COVID-19 has really hit our rescue hard. Donations are well down but our vet bills continue to rise and tonight we’re calling out for your help. We have no choice.
We’ve have put off asking for help for as long as possible, but it is getting critical now. We are struggling to pay our bills, with more bills due at the end of the month and we are losing sleep over it.
We need help to keep our doors open. It’s as urgent as it gets and we need your support.
We have had some very expensive surgeries that have hit us hard and have wiped out our savings. We hope to be able to pay these bills off and have some funds leftover to prepare for an influx of dogs coming in that will need us (which we predict will happen after COVID).
We’ve had Lucky – A timid pound boy with horrendous skin issues and internal infections. We got him treatment for his skin issues, surgery and ear flushes as his ears were so infected. Lucky has been doing so well in foster care and is finally getting a chance at happiness. Yesterday he suffered massive blood loss from his surgery site and had to be rushed to the emergency vet and placed on IV fluids. This has cost us $2k already. We've also just found out that Lucky has cancer and needs an additional surgery (but has a very good prognosis as the cancer is treatable).
Poor Albie – Our gorgeous boy with neurological issues affecting his walking (but not affecting his quality of life or happiness). His carers found him curled up and panting. We rushed him to the emergency vet and he had a severe case of stomach bloat which can kill a dog within hours. His stomach had rotated, trapping the gas inside, and blocking off the stomach's blood supply. This cost us $7k.
On top of this, we have had dogs needing leg amputations, multiple cancer biopsies, allergy medicines, sore paws and all of the other bills and treatments that come with ensuring that our dogs are healthy and happy. We make a promise to, and have a duty of care to the dogs in our care that once with us, we won’t turn out back on them. We don’t just pick the healthy, ‘easy to rehome dogs’ or cute puppies, we advocate for the ones who have no other hope and who are often from pounds where their health condition is completely unknown; we are their last chance. We are going to have to keep turning away dogs until we can financially recover. The sooner we do this, the more dogs we can save, so please help us!
We need to urgently raise $15,000 tonight. If there was ever a time to support us, it’s now.
Just $5 from each and every one of you would help get us over the line. It’s just your next cup of coffee in the morning but one that will help save a life.
Can you answer the call from Albie and Lucky and our other precious pups who need us to provide for them.
