BENEFITING: Lucky Mutt Animal Rescue
Lucky Mutt Animal Rescue needs your help!
Taking in the dogs that many other rescues won't touch, LMAR has numerous special needs medical cases right now and is in need of funding to provide medical care for these deserving dogs. Where other people have failed them, LMAR is stepping in to rescue these babies mere hours before they were slated to be euthanized. Can we pull together a holiday miracle for these dogs and raise the funds for their care? You can read about each dog's story below. In addition to these special cases below, LMAR has 15 other dogs in our care requiring veterinary care and some requiring expensive medications. Any and all donations made to Lucky Mutt Animal Rescue are tax deductible, with 100% going directly to the dogs care!
Found running as a stray in Tennessee, Roxie was believed to be pregnant. One of our partner rescuers set food stations, and was able to catch Roxie who immediately seemed to feel relieved being off the street. It was quickly discovered that her puppies had been delivered and were picked up by someone a month prior who left Roxie behind. She is being spayed and has been diagnosed with heart worm disease, which is prevalent in the southern US and fatal is left untreated. Treatment for this disease is not cheap (around $1000) - combined with her spay, transport to New England and other medical care, we are looking at approximately $1500 in medical care for Roxie alone.
A 7 month old Cane Corso mix, surrendered to the Brooklyn NYACC 2 days after Thanksgiving. The reason? Too destructive. Midnight came in with an unsteady gait and weakness in his hind legs, which will require an orthopedic work up in addition to his standard vet care required. Without knowing the cause of his weakness, it is unclear how much his treatment will cost. We are hoping to raise $1000 for his vetting and orthopedic appointments, knowing his vet bills may well exceed this amount.
SAMMY AND THUMPER
Sammy and Thumper were seized in a cruelty case from Connecticut. They were found living in an attic with their two siblings, and likely had been there for their entire lives. We were originally told these girls were 10 months old. These sisters were essentially feral, allowing no human contact. They have come a long way behaviorally and allow us to handle and bathe them! Medically, both of their spays cost us (discounted) $400 each as it was discovered they were much older than originally thought, at 3-5 years based on the condition of their uterus' during surgery. In addition to their spay costs, Sammy is partially blind and requires some follow up opthalmogy appointments to determine what her needs are. The cost for these sisters has already come to $1000, with more to follow.
