WE JUST ADDED FRESCA & FIRENZA! PLEASE HELP US RAISE $800 TODAY (7/23)! There are two 14-week-old puppies at BARC who are in VERY bad shape. They've been diagnosed with Parvovirus, which we all know can be fatal for little ones. Sadly, they lost their brother last night, but we want to do everything we can to save these two! But when do emergency situations ALWAYS happen? That's correct! On Sundays when nearly every veterinary clinic including our own is closed! However, we do have one veterinary partner who is open today, so we're rushing these two precious pups there ASAP. CAN YOU HELP? From experience, we know it's going to cost us about $400 to treat each pup. That will help pay for IV fluids, B12, anti-nausea medicine, and other necessary medications and constant attention while they're at the vet.
Over the course of this Macy's Challenge, this Medical Pleas fundraising page will become full of pictures and a medical pleas on dog,s cats, puppies, and kittens for whom we REALLY need donations. EVERY DONATION MADE TO THIS MEDICAL PLEAS PAGE THROUGH THE END OF THE CHALLENGE WILL BE MATCHED.
When RPM saves homeless pets, we seldom limit those we save to just the healthy ones. The weak, sick, and injured desperately need our help. In just the last two months, RPM has incurred over $30,000 in medical bills to help these sick and injured, and we are running out of funds.
Our first medical plea is for sweet Kanu. He is the puppy in the first picture in the veterinarian cage. Please read about this strong-willed boy, and PLEASE make a donation on this page to help us raise the $1,459.70 we have incurred for his medical bills. When we saved Kanu from the city shelter, he was lethargic, not eating, not drinking, vomiting, and had diarrhea. Because it was the July 4 holiday, we immediately took him to the ER, where he was diagnosed with the parvovirus. After the holiday and after the vets were able to stabilize him, we then transferred him to a nonemergency clinic to continue treatment and keep him under observation. This strong boy SURVIVED parvo and just went to his foster home on Saturday, July 15. He is very weak but parvo negative! The doctor said he was in terrible shape and almost did not survive. Although he is still weak, he has a GREAT appetite and will transport to his new home when he is all better. Again, PLEASE make a donation on this page to help us raise $1,459.70.
Our second medical plea is for Brigid, Bertie, Bly, & Bodee These little peanuts also suffered from the parvovirus when we saved them from the city shelter. We immediately sent them to the veterinarian for supportive care. And look at them now! Healthy, playful, loved, and alive!
