Last year was a year of substantial medical bills and dogs that took almost a year to heal. Bills for surgeries that generally cost $3800. now cost close to $8,000. Complicated surgeries such as what Maya had were over $20,000. by the time we got her squared away. She has finally reached the point where we are comfortable with her outcome. The list goes on and on for each dog we have in our care.
GWINNETT COUNTY, GEORGIA.....I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with lots of Joy and Laughter. The year will soon close, and we are in crunch mode to get every animal's medical bills paid before the year ends. Today is Giving Tuesday, and what better way to celebrate than to donate to an abused dog?
BENNETTSVILLE, SC......The Human Race appears to get crueler by the minute regarding Animals. I am past the point of being shocked but never past the point of feeling the heart-breaking sadness these precious pups endure. Adorable Dandy is a one-year-old Border Collie Mix. He was picked up as a stray and taken to the Humane Society of Marlboro County.
COLUMBIA, SC.....We have been saving dogs for a long time and have never had a case more complicated than Maya, the two-year-old Cane Corso we rescued. A good Samaritan picked Maya up after she was found on the side of the road. Cane Corso rescues were contacted, and she was taken to an ER in Columbia. Maya's injuries are massive. No one was willing to go out on a limb to get this young pup the medical care she needed. Maya had complex pelvic and sacrocaudal spinal fractures and hip luxations.
VIDALIA, GA....We were contacted about a four-week-old male chihuahua puppy with a genital deformity. The sheath over his penis had not developed, leaving him exposed and in danger of developing infections from drying out. We had dealt with this several times before with our hypospadias puppies.
