Harry Potter

PLEASE HELP HARRY POTTER

Harry Potter is an adorable 4 16 week old puppy who is very sick and needs surgery.   He needs to be seen at Kansas State College of Veterinary Medicine for most likely Porto systemic liver shunt surgery. Harry has “episodes” where he stops eating, becomes disoriented, runs into walls and things in the house.  His heart races, his eyes are open wide and scared, and his mouth won’t fully close. He is completely worn out for days until he has another episode.  His “Mom” is a single Mom who struggles daily with trying to make ends meet. She simply is out of  funds to help any further........ She is doing everything she can, but she and Harry needs our help.

Please help Harry Potter get the surgery he needs.  This puppy deserves a long healthy loving life!

 
 

UPDATE 7-1-14   HARRY STILL NEEDS FUNDS FOR HIS SURGERY!  PLEASE HELP HARRY!

Great vet visit today!!  The main vet could not believe we brought the same dog in as we had there two weeks ago!!

Sounds like they want us to have him on meds at a minimum of another two weeks before we discuss surgery, so I’ll probably shoot for four weeks. I’ll try to have an appointment with the small animal people we’ve been dealing with then, and see if they will let us have an appointment that day also to talk to the surgical department and get that ball rolling. That will also give time to hopefully come up with all the funds for his surgery.  On the third page she wrote in that it is estimated to be between $2500-$3000. It would also include a 3-5 day stay in the hospital, and she said probably more the 5 days. They again said Harry would be totally spoiled by everyone who works there. That makes a Mom feel a lot better!!

I am so THRILLED with how this visit went, and so happy they were able to see the real Harry!! I’m hoping with the tweak in meds, he’ll continue to improve. They said he gained almost a whole pound, so I was happy about that. Before, there were days I couldn’t get him to eat at all, so this was a nice benefit to better med management.

So, HELP!!! Please help me help Harry!!!

132 DOGS AND FOUR BIRDS ON THEIR WAY TO A NEW LIFE AFTER BEING RESCUED FROM A VIRGINIA PUPPY MILL

Virginia – Animal Rescue Corps (ARC), a nonprofit animal protection organization based in Washington D.C., is pleased to announce that all of the animals rescued from a Virginia puppy mill just before Independence Day are on their way to ARC’s shelter and foster-based rescue partners in Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee, and Canada. ARC had been caring for the rescued dogs, parrots, and cockatiel at an emergency shelter they set up at the Page County Animal Shelter in Stanley, VA since their rescue, Operation Liberty Dogs, on July 3.

“Without compassionate partners like these, we couldn’t do what we do,” said Animal Rescue Corps President Scotlund Haisley. “These partners are as critical to these operations as the boots on the ground getting the animals out of harm’s way.”

ARC’s network of placement partners will be tasked with physically and emotional rehabilitating the animals and finding them permanent homes. The list of U.S. placement partners includes: Mutts Matter Rescue, Dogs XL Rescue, the Humane Society of Calvert County, On the Rebound Bulldog Rescue, Doxie Rescue of Bucks County, the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Agape Animal Rescue, New Leash on Life, and Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee. In Canada, ARC’s placement partners include Marley’s Hope All Breed Rescue, Atlantic Small Dog Rescue, and Buddy’s Bully Rescue. Carolina Waterfowl Rescue in North Carolina took three ducks rescued in a separate, unrelated operation in which Animal Rescue Corps helped Page County, VA officials address another cruelty situation in their community. 

“Anyone wishing to foster or adopt one of these animals should contact ARC’s partner organizations directly and follow the foster and adoption screening process,” said ARC Outreach Director Karla Goodson, who is tasked with placing all of the animals ARC rescues. “Many of these recently rescued animals will not be available for adoption immediately but there are many other dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and other animals available through these rescue groups too, so anyone looking to add a member to their family will be able to find their perfect match.”

Operation Liberty Dogs began when ARC received a tip concerning the alleged neglect of the dogs. Documentation brought by ARC to the Page County Sheriff’s Office revealed several violations of county and state cruelty codes.  

On July 3, 132 small breed dogs, including newborn litters, were found crowded into small, dilapidated, indoor and outdoor wire and plastic crates and pens encrusted with urine and excessive piles of feces. The dogs, the majority of whom were underweight, were suffering from severe eye and ear infections, significant fur loss and matting, urine-soaked fur, skin issues, and extreme internal and external parasites, such as fleas. Additionally, three parrots and a cockatiel were found living in similar conditions, their cages and food bowls also covered in feces. All animals lacked adequate living conditions, socialization, and veterinary care. 

Animal Rescue Corps performed Operation Liberty Dogs in conjunction with Page County Animal Control and the Page County Sheriff’s Office. American Dog Rescue and The Mosby Foundation provided critical financial resources. Also contributing essential equipment, supplies, and other support for this rescue are: PetSmart Charities®; Caring Hands Animal Support and Education (CHASE); Herndon Animal Medical Center, Page County Animal Shelter of Stanley, VA; SPCA of Northern Virginia, Mutts Matter Rescue of Rockville, MD; Harrisonburg Animal Control of Harrisonburg, VA; Middleburg Humane Foundation of Middleburg, VA; Humane Society of Calvert County in Sunderland, MD; and Dogs XL Rescue of Baltimore, MD; Page Paws.

PETCO FOUNDATION AND BLUE BUFFALO TAKE A BITE OUT OF CANINE CANCER! The Mosby Foundation has been awarded a very generous grant by The Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo to assist with funding the treatment of cancer in dogs. Canine cancer is now the leading cause of death in dogs in this country.  This grant is directed toward helping families that may not otherwise be able to afford cancer treatment for their dog. Applicants may complete a preapplication by clicking on our financial aid page. WE CANNOT THANK THE PETCO FOUNDATION AND BLUE BUFFALO ENOUGH!

Heat KillsHEAT KILLS! Tuffy, a scruffy and adorably sweet little terrier arrived at my hospital in a state of collapse with profoundly labored breathing, purplish gums, and a temperature of 106 degrees Fahrenheit (the normal body temperature for a dog is 100-102 degrees). Tuffy’s well-intentioned family let him accompany them on a brief outing and, while they were in the store for a mere ten minutes, Tuffy remained in the car. The outdoor temperature at the time was 82 degrees, and the temperature within the car quickly soared to well above 100 degrees. Tuffy is one of the lucky ones. He survived his episode of heatstroke without any lingering complications and has gone home to rejoin his grateful (and more knowledgeable) family. Most patients with heatstroke don’t fare nearly so well. I invite you to share Tuffy’s story with others with hopes of preventing a needless tragedy. Read More Here...
