Mikie's Fund ~ For Special Dogs

Ruger

April 2009 - Ruger came to rescue after he was abandoned at a Cape Cod Emergency Hospital by his owners. Apparently, he swallowed something he shouldn’t have (they think it was a toy) and his whole belly swelled up. The people who had him didn’t want to pay for his care so they decided to have him euthanized. That is where RESCUE stepped in and saved him. We authorized the surgery as well as his extended stay and our bill is now over $3500 and we need help!! Thanks to the great doctors at Randolph Animal Hospital, Ruger is now healthy and HAPPY.

Levi

April 2009 - Only 12 weeks old when he was rushed to the emergency hospital for his broken leg, Levi’s young owners couldn’t afford the surgery to repair his leg and took him home. We also found out that they purchased Levi so that they could breed their female blue pittie, because “Blue Pitties are rare and we can get a lot of money for them.” Thankfully, a concerned family member was able to convince Levi’s owners to turn him over, 2 weeks after his injury, to rescue. Rushed to the vet, it was determined that both of Levi’s left front bones were broken and his ankle dislocated. One can only guess what happened to him. He underwent surgery to set his bones, flex his wrist and of course was neutered. He will require continuous cast changes for the next 6 weeks as he continues to grow during his healing period.

Mikie

Most of you won't remember Mikie. Mikie was six months old when he was unceremoniously dumped in the shelter. Mikie's former owners had not provided him adequate medical care, and consequently Mikie contracted pneumonia. $4200 later, Mikie's guardian angel picked him up from the emergency vet. Mikie became the icon of wonderfully-tempered dogs needing homes who would be euthanized at the shelter if it wasn't for rescue. Mikie was adopted on June 1, 2006 but there are many more dogs like Mikie who need our help. Please contribute to Mikie's Fund. Your donation is tax deductable, and Mikie himeself has been seen signing thank you notes lately.


Meet the recipients of Mikie's fund:

Cady - Cady's foot was constructed in such a way that the dew claw removal required two surgeries to reconstruct a bone that stuck out from her foot. While this has no lasting impact on Cady's life or mobility, it was a significant expense that we had not planned on. Because of this, Cady is now a recipient of Mikie's Fund funds. Cady will be released from the hospital on approx 8/9. Her veterinary bill as of 8/2 was $961 (after rescue discount). Please help us defray the costs of Cady's surgery.


Daria - This 18 month old lady was pulled off of the euthanasia list in New York. Healthy upon arrival, she developed pneumonia within five days. Daria is expected to recover and hopes to be released from the Animal ICU on August 9. As of 8/7, her veterinary bill was $2037, after discount. Please help us with Daria's surgery. This girl is with every penny! 8/13 total bill after discount was over $3000.

Nicholas - Nicholas is a very sweet young man who suffers with a bum leg injury caused by a human & left to heal on its own. We don't really know the truth as to what transpired that left this poor boy in the condition he is in, but he doesn't hold that against anyone. Three orthopedic veterinary consultations later, it was decided that Nicholas had to lose the leg. The damage to the leg included the knee, and the knee could not be fixed, therefore amputation was the only solution :(

Lola - This wonderful pittie lady joined in February 2007 covered in demodectic mange. When she finally recovered from that, she tore her cruciate -- to the tune of $2700, after discount. While Lola found her forever home, her teatments and surgery was felt through the rescue.

Troy - Five year old Troy was labeled "cruelty impound". While he shows no emotional side of mistreatment, his physical condition certainly needs improvement. After a good bath, Troy was found to be missing his canine teeth (chewing on bars, most likely) and having a perennial hernia (major surgery, performed 4/30/07). $2400 later, Troy found his true love with Dorothy.

Sabrina - This adorable puppy contracted pneumonia while in foster care. Nobody knows why -- she just did. $1900, Sabrina is healthy and ready for a new life.

Shiloh - Where does one start with Shiloh? Joining us in February 2008, Shiloh had several cancerous masses that were removed, leaving her cancer free. She was treated for heartworm. While in foster care, Shiloh decided that slowly eating the driveway gravel was a fun activity - which caused her to bloat. And now, in 2009, we learn that Shiloh's heartworm treatment wasn't effective and again she is undergoing treatment. She is our million dollar dog - and still doesn't have her own home.

Braeton - A pittie man from upstate New York, this wonderful young man was to be euthanized because he needed special food and the shelter was sure that nobody would "pay $40" for a bag of dog food. As it turned out Braeton has serious allergies. Braeton now eats a commercial fish & potato food, and is stableized. But getting to this point was a $1000 adventure into trial and error as to what combinations of food and medication worked for him.

Ruger - Ruger was surrendered to a Cape Cod emergency hospital after consuming a toy -- his former owners would not fund its removal. $1700 later (after our discount), Ruger has recovered and is healthy and happy.

Levi - Only 12 weeks old when he was rushed to the emergency hospital for his broken leg, Levi’s young owners couldn’t afford the surgery to repair his leg and took him home. We also found out that they purchased Levi so that they could breed their female blue pittie, because “Blue Pitties are rare and we can get a lot of money for them.” Thankfully, a concerned family member was able to convince Levi’s owners to turn him over, 2 weeks after his injury, to rescue. Rushed to the vet, it was determined that both of Levi’s left front bones were broken and his ankle dislocated. One can only guess what happened to him. He underwent surgery to set his bones, flex his wrist and of course was neutered. He will require continuous cast changes for the next 6 weeks as he continues to grow during his healing period.
