Hello all. Well, I had a horrible weekend. One of our little rescues is very, very sick. Little Thoreau, a tiny, 8 lb white boy, is fighting for his life right now. It might be distemper.
So, I have had little time to do much more than care for him.
But, we are sorely behind in the fundraising for Carme, Mandisa and the rest from the last newsletters.
Carme needs surgery!
The most urgent is CARME BURKE. Her fund is getting there, but we still lack over $700 as of right now before she can have surgery. It was scheduled for last week, but unfortunately, with the economy the way it is, we had to reschedule it for a future data. We can’t go forward until her funds are ready.
You all are wonderful! Never cease to amaze me with your generousity. But, please pass this message around. We definitely need more and more new people who love these little dogs. It’s a more-than-full-time job just trying to keep them from dying.
Carme Burke – surgery fund update
Little Carme Burke was rescued from the Pasadena Animal Control with a broken leg. After our vet examined her, he found that her leg had healed in the broken position. So, we were left with two options – amputate the leg or get her down to Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists for an orthopedic specialist to fix it.
We took her for a consult with Dr. Brian Beale who is very certain that she can be fixed – his surgery estimate will total around $3,000 and we’ve already spent just at $500 for preliminary x-rays, vet visits, etc. HERE is the original post about her situation.
As of Saturday morning, we have raised $2680, which is only $820 short of where we need to be. We can reschedule her surgery for later this month if we can raise the remaining $800 this weekend.

And then there is Mandisa!
Mandisa had to have a big bladderstone removed asap, when she had bloody urine.
The total cost, including x-rays, surgery and post-op hospitalization is around $950.
Mandisa also had surgery on her eyes just before Thanksgiving. We’ll need another $300 for that so I’m rolling that into this plea. I hope you don’t mind.
We need a total of $1250 to get her whole and up for adoption. As of right now, she has a total of $580 in her fun.
