Brown Dog Foundation July 15th-September 23rd The Brown Dog Foundation helps animals in their most vulnerable state. Veterinary care is so very expensive and in this economy people are finding themselves in compromising positions. Some people feel "Why have a pet if you cant afford to care for it." So many people have just fallen on hard times that they could have never anticipated. No matter how you feel about responsibility, animals should not be expected to suffer or be euthinised if they can be helped medically with a procedure or just medication. Brown Dog Foundation helped me and my dog Angel when I was desperate to help her. I had Angel for almost 6 Months I'm sure some people feel 6 month's that is a waist of money but on assessing the situation Angel was helped with a couple office visits and some medication. Those 6 months meant the world to me and my 80 year old mother, it included several holidays and I did not see any suffering on Angels part for the duration. I owe Brown Dog foundation more than money can repay. If you are on the fence about donating I can only say the Brown Dog foundation it so well run with amazing volunteers that touch peoples lives in a positive way.
