This holiday season, we’d like to celebrate some of the Golden lives that were saved by our rescue and whose medical treatment was possible because of your donations.
Meet Tiny Tim, our second of the “Twelve Dogs of 2018."
Tiny Tim - $3,500
Eighteen-month-old Tiny Tim came into rescue from a breeder in August. Tim had a congenital liver shunt that was considered inoperable because its location was not easily accessible. Without surgery. Tim’s life would be shortened and his abilities would be limited. Tiny Tim, only 50 pounds, began a battery of tests and was fed three meals per day to fatten him up. After months of building him up and diagnostic tests, it was determined that there was indeed a chance for surgery for Tim. On November 30th, Tim had a cellophane sheath applied to the shunt which will allow Tim’s body to close the shunt on its own. To date, Tim is doing well and acting like the puppy he still is!
Won't you please help rescue more dogs like Tiny Tim? Any size donation is appreciated. Thank you!
Our first of the twelve dogs -
Jameson - $4,100
Jameson was on Craigslist three times. The breeder sold him, the first adopter had kids and no time, the second didn’t keep him because of frequent urination. Then a co-worker bought him but didn’t want to keep him because of excessive urination. Jameson had to be moved two more times to see specialists because of severe gastrointestinal problems. After many months of tests, treatments, medical boarding, a special diet, and medications, he is now a normal boy in a stable, loving home.
