I am on the board of a rescue called Im-Paws-Able Rescue. Since it is so costly to pull urgent shelter dogs, we frequently post chip ins and ask for donations so we can continue saving lives. I hope you won't mind an email from me now and then that includes a plea for a particular dog. I will include a link to a Facebook post/page where there will be more information concerning the dog, if you can share it there that would help so much as well. If an occasional email is a problem, please let me know.
We are currently in the process of raising money for a boy named Shawnee. Shawnee was seized by BARCS, where he was adopted from, w/a broken femur & had to have a metal rod put in to stabilize the break. Impawsable pulled him & placed him in a screened foster home. Within 3 days, his hip was draining. Xrays showed the pin placement was incorrect, so an orthopedic surgeon appt was made. The following day, the pin punctured through the skin and he tried to chew it out. He required orthopedic surgery to put a bar on the outside of his leg & clean/repair the large hole he had chewed in his hip. He then needed surgery to remove the bar.
Shawnee needed PT that he was not receiving, nor was he made available. There were also other, serious concerns, so the rescue sent a written request for the return of the dog and appeared to pick him up. Fosters refused to release him, sending a cease & desist, instead. ImPawsAble finally convinced a judge to sign a warrant for his return. He is in very poor condition. We now have to begin his therapy from scratch. It will take nothing short of a miracle to make that leg functional again...but that's what we are shooting for!
Shawnee requires special food and water therapy that costs $20 a session, 3-4 sessions a week.

Please let's give this boy a New Year that will insure him that we will get him back and playing on all fours!
