Meet Rogue - Rogue started having seizures in November and spent several days in the hospital. (she is only 10 months old). In January, she started having repeated seizures again and was hospitalized for 5 days while they worked to adjust her medications. The seizures are now under control.

Then two weeks later, in early February, Rogue was hospitalized again with an E. Coli infection that was no responding to antibiotics. We thought we were going to lose her that first week but luckily she started to respond before her organs shut down. She spend 7 days at Georgia Veterinary Specialist under 24 hour care. We think her immune system was suppressed due to the recent introduction of the seizure meds.

Total Cost for all three hospitalizations: $9100

We were able to place this cost on our care credit card but it is now maxed out. We have until August to pay it off before interest accrues.

Meet Tuddy - Tuddy was came to us with severe heartworms. He has since been treated but it left behind scarring in his lungs that can make it hard for him to breath and makes him very susceptible to kennel cough. Late last year, he was somehow exposed to kennel cough but due to his constant persistent cough, we didn't recognize it until he was very ill. Tuddy was walking across the yard after barking at a car across the street and he just collapsed from lack of oxygen. We rushed him to the ER where he spent one night, then he was moved to the Village Vets of Decatur for Oxygen theraphy and 24 hour care for 3 days.

Total Cost: $2100

This was paid out of the checking account but it took away from the funds we were able to spend on current veterinary needs (listed below)

To donate:

Meet Holly - Holly was on a walk with her foster dad and a loose dog came out of no where. In reaction to the dog, her foster dad yanked her up into the air but the dog still hit Holly at full speed. She flew about 20 feet and rolled. She seemed okay until they got home and he called me. Holly had two large hernias protruding against the inner lining of her stomach wall.

We rushed Holly to the ER (because nothing ever happens during the day) and found out that basically for the lack of a better description, the impact of that dog hitting Holly "popped' her abdomen wall allowing her intestines to protrude against the outer wall.

Holly had to have emergency surgery to live. She has several tiny sections of her intestines removed and the tears repaired. 3 weeks later she was waddling around happily and headed to her new home but we still had that vet bill!

Total Cost: $5400

This is on our care credit card as well and is a few months from being paid off. We still owe $2400 on this charge

To donate:

Meet Bosco - In January, we took Bosco into out program. He was a sad, skinny boy who had been out on his own for a very long time. Bosco turned out to be heartworm Positive and already has a cough and minor heart damage b/c he has been sick for so long. Bosco also has a cracked hip and will require surgery on his leg after his heart is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia.

Bosco has finished up his 30 days of doxycycline and has had two months of Heartguard so is now ready for his first heartworm treatment. Due to his heart damage we will need to do the slower kill method. This means he will recieve one injection, then in one month he will receive two injections (instead of the two initially). Six months after those injections he will be tested for heartworms and have his heart evaluated for surgery. If he can have surgery at that time, we can neuter him and have his FHO on his hip.

This is a wonderful boy and worth it all. He also NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!

Total Cost Estimate for the Heartworm Treatment : $750

Total Cost estimate for the leg/hip surgery: $2000

To donate:

Meet Ceasar - Ceasar is an awesome boy who loves everyone but got abandoned by his family when they found out he was heartworm positive. Ceasar had finished up his 30 days of Doxycycline and two doses of heartguard and is ready for his treatment. Because Ceasar is mildly heartworm positive, we will be doing the fast kill method on him. He will recieve one injection on a Monday and a second on that Tuesday. He will then have to be calm for 4-6 weeks.


Total Cost for Heartworm Treatment: $475
