I have been finding other ways to help the rescue community after my recent set back with an organization who I once trusted, only to learn they abused their privileges in ways that make good rescues struggle to keep their good name.
I’ve been hosting fundraising events for a couple of animals. One is a Yellow Lab named Zeus; the other is Ella a cat.
ZEUS is set for surgery tomorrow for what is called a Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) for Treatment of Ruptured Cranial Cruciate Ligament – See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-zeus-run-again/96905#sthash.aRLe2nwV.dpuf
I decided I wanted to help this sweet boy and put together a Facebook page for him called “Zeus the Yellow Lab” https://www.facebook.com/pages/ZEUS-the-Yellow-Lab/563807007002189?ref=hl and he has a YouCaring Page, where people can donate to. At present we are very very close to reaching his goal of $2,500. We need about $400 and his surgery is for Monday, November 18, 2013!
People commend me, say very nice things to me but I just feel that all animals deserve a chance and that is quite simply why I do what I have been doing.
Miss Ella is a very sweet 2 year old Birman/Ragdoll cross cat. She is very petite in size and stature. She is my cat and her veterinary costs in a very quick period of time have come close to $950.00. We have managed to raise $604 and have about $340ish to go. The illness they have thought she had/has is either she passed a kidney stone/crystal (her kidney enzymes were very high), her white blood cell count has been very high, indicating an infection and she ended up staying 3 nights with our veterinarian’s office. Feline Leukemia and AIDS have been spoken about, but they have not done the testing for that at this point, they have wanted to attack her infection and go from there.
To read more on Ella you can go to her FB page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/All-things-Princess-Ella-A-cats-life/180768685448702 and if you wish to donate to her veterinary expenses you can do so at http://www.gofundme.com/558d3o
Ella, like ZEUS are both rescues, both have had hard starts in life, but both are resilient with determination and spunk, these furry babies really do know what it takes to be determined to have a good life. 🙂
