I am a volunteer with a local rescue group, Black Dog Second Chance Rescue. We currently have a few needy dogs and cats who need extensive surgeries and vetting. Please help us raise money for their care!
Please, if you have the means donate. Every penny helps! Share this on your facebook and twitter pages too : )
Jack. Jack came to us from NC along with all the hounds that were dumped in the field. He was on the kill list so Tammy stepped up to foster him. He is a young dog, but he arrived with a limp. We got him in for x-rays and Dr. Albert had never seen anything like it! Jack had a previous break to his leg, never saw a vet, and now it was healing, improperly, on its own. It is very painful for him and he will limp on it if he walks too much or tries to play. We have an appointment with Dr. Van ee, a bone surgical specialist, to see if we can correct the break so he can live a quality life. Jack may require extensive surgery if the leg can be saved, but if not, we will have to amputate. Either way, the surgery will be costly to give Jack a quality life. We are asking for your help!
Marlee. Marlee is a pup who was dumped in a shelter along with her brother. A rescue took her brother, but could not take Marlee because of her eye- they did not have the funds to help her with vetting. BDSC knows how compassionate our fans are, and we have faith in the fact that we can get her to see a specialist and try to save her eye. She has an appointment with Dr. Stanz, the eye specialist. Hopefully her eye won’t need to be removed and we can restore her sight!
Runty. Runty came to BDSC along with her 8 siblings and young momma. They were in a kill shelter in NC. The family arrived safely and settled in nicely. One day, little four month old Runty seemed to be having trouble pooping. She was rushed to the Orchard Park ER, and it was determined that she has some sort of congenital defect from birth. Her poop is coming out her vagina! She is being referred to another surgical specialist at Orchard Park and we will see what we can do to help her. She is not too young for surgery to correct this.
3 Little Kittens have lost their mittens! No, seriously, three tiny kittens were found abandoned and absolutely covered in fleas in a field. Our foster volunteer discovered them and scooped them up immediately. They are bottle babies and will require lots of formula and around the clock feedings. Not to mention vet visits to get them healthy again.
