Meh Mummy has been volunteering with @Safe at Last Dog Rescue Society and has been helping with fundraising for a gorgeous (ok so he is, but not as cute as moi, Blaze *giggle*) Golden Labrador named ZEUS. We want to share a message from ZEUS and His Team:
From everyone on the ZEUS TEAM and ZEUS’ foster family, we wanted to wish you all a Pawsitively Wonderful safe and happy Pawlidays
We have set up phase 2 of ZEUS’ fundraising now and donations have started to appear. Just a quick side note, on the
the site doesn’t allow for a second fundraiser for the same cause, so the $2,500 raised is from the first fundraiser. The $3,000 is the total needed for the second one that we have begun. The cartrophen injections are higher in cost than before, and ZEUS needs 4 of them at $50.00 a round, it all adds up.
As well we are looking for blankets, bedding, and all things safe and warm for those in need. If you have anything you want to donate please contact @Marion a Safe At Last Dog Rescue Society
oh and moi, Blaze! I got to see Santa too!!
Its been 3 days since ZEUS, a gorgeous 2 year old yellow Labrador, had his surgery. The product of a puppy mill he needs to have what is called 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.wDizDtG6.5P2XbO5N.dpuf
I created a Facebook page for ZEUS and worked on fundraising for him. It was an amazing process to see how people can come together to help out. I’d like to share some of the photos of ZEUS this week and thank you all for your donations towards ZEUS. Dr. Mann said his Left leg was in rough shape and we have about 4 months and he is highly recommending that ZEUS’ Right leg be operated on. We will be fundraising for that procedure as soon as possible.
Day 1 after surgery
Day 2 with my foster family 🙂
Some post operation x-rays, they show the parts that have been put in to stabilize ZEUS’ knee/joints
Yes, I wear the cone of shame, but I also took my pink bandage off!
This is what A COMMUNITY can do when we all work together as a TEAM.
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.
This is ZEUS a 2 year old, Yellow Labrador
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. 🙂
We’ve been hard at work for ZEUS, we know all of our followers are animal lovers too. We have more information to share with you all and we hope you will consider helping ZEUS.
Safe At Last Dog Rescue Society is an animal rescue organization in the Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada area that has been serving the needs of animals at risk since 2010. Our operation relies on the kind hearts of our volunteers and donations made by the general public.
Recently our organization took on a 2 year old Lab named Zeus. Zeus is in desperate need of some serious surgeries and medication for hip dysplasia to give him back a quality life without pain. Zeus is one of the rare cases where the costs of his needs put a great strain on our available finances. We are reaching out to our local community to ask for their help to give Zeus back the life he so desperately deserves.
You can help us by providing a donation to either our organization or directly to MENZIES PET HOSPITAL 604-792-3399. ZEUS’ veterinarian is Dr. Mann. If you are donating directly to the vet office, please leave a contact card so we are able to contact you privately. In addition to your donation receipt we would like permission from your organization to publicly thank you either on our Face Book Page or in the local news paper.
The above X-rays are of ZEUS’s Hips and legs.
Here are some new photos of ZEUS from our visit with him yesterday
This is Sharon, Fundraising Co-ordinator with Safe at Last Dog Rescue Society
This is Marion of Safe at Last Dog Rescue with ZEUS.
Please donate to Zeus so he can have his surgery. ZEUS so he will never have to feel pain again!!
ZEUS is worth spending even just $5. He loves to give lots of kisses, he’s affectionate, sweet, and forgiving.
We guarantee that It will be the best 5 bucks you have ever spent.
Lots of Wiggle Bums and Kisses!!
