They are fighting for their life. You can help make a difference!
Here are some of their stories…
It takes a village… and a lot of big hearts
These are just three of the nine dogs that Last Chance at Life has taken in over the past couple of weeks. Joey, Frankie, Jenny, Tyler, Jacob and Elmo are the others. Each of these has a story to tell, just like Rosie, Rumor and Cassie. In bringing in each of these lives, we made a commitment to care and provide for them until we can find each of them a wonderful, loving forever home. In some cases, that process is rather easy and in other cases, there are some bumps along the way. We have had a lot of bumps this time which is why we are reaching out.
When we chose this amazing group of dogs, we knew some of them were sick. We knew Rosie wasn’t eating and Rumor was having problems breathing. We thought we might have another one or two get sick, but that wasn’t going to keep us from trying to save them. After all, we are Last Chance at Life Rescue. These VERY dogs are our mission. What happened next though was unexpected. We thought we would be able to handle most of their care as outpatients but instead, several of them have required extensive hospitalization. Two of them remain hospitalized as this letter is being written.
While it is hard for us to do this, we need to ask for your help. The medical costs have risen quickly and are reaching into the thousands of dollars as we have worked to care for these sweet dogs. We have tried to make good decisions about which tests to run and which treatments to provide, but it still adds up. Your generous support in the past has helped pull us through and we are hoping we can count on the LCAL community and their network to help us pay for the veterinary care provided to Rosie and the rest of the “pack”.
None of us volunteer to help in the world of dog rescue because we like to ask for money or fund raise. We do it because we love dogs. We love everything about them – their intelligence, their creativity, their spontaneity, their ability to live in the moment, and their unconditional love. You love those things too! So please, help us help them.
