BENEFITING: Hamburg Mutts For Freedom Inc
Hamburg Mutts for Freedom saved Bubba James off of death row in GA. He had a bad leg and his owner in GA was "tired of taking care of him" and was going to shoot him. So animal control took him in. However, due to his bad leg no rescue took him in. Hamburg Mutts for Freedom saw him and could see what a good, sweet dog he was - and boy we were right!!! Despite no kindness or comfort in his life, he maintained his sweet disposition. This dog is a gem - everyone who meets him falls in love with him. When he was pulled to safety we discovered he had heartworm. We thought once he was treated, we could get him up to New York State and let him enjoy his life. But that was not to be. Bubba has been in a tremendous amount of pain so we took him to Dr. Cely at the Village Vets of Hamburg and we discovered that Bubba has a very large cancerous tumor at the top of his leg. This is what has destroyed his leg. We need to amputate his leg quickly so the cancer does not spread to the rest of his body.
