|Help needed for our rescues
2012 has been a tough financial year for our rescue. Poor Noel had surgery
to have her epiglotis trimmed due to her having more labored breathing.
The vet said her epiglotis was so long it obstructed part of her esophagus
which was why she was having such a difficult time. Dante recently had a
mass cell removed and is currently recovering. Miss Ping has had a number
of issues including her own 2 surgeries over the past few months.
Due to a very generous donation, Noel's, Dante's & Ping's vet bills
have all been paid in full!!
|We are starting our own Ebay Auction Page to raise money for the rescues.
