Beautiful Lily was surrendered to our shelter as a pregnant stray. She was the sweetest, most loving girl! After being with us for just 8 days, she began showing signs of labor and gave birth to 2 stillborn puppies. Lily's labor failed to progress and she became lethargic and feverish. Rather than euthanize her, we rushed her to the vet's office where they determined that she needed a c-section. Lily delivered 7 more puppies via c-section. Despite working over an hour on each of them, none of the babies survived. We were heartbroken but hopeful that we would at least be able to save mom and that she'd never go through anything like this again. As her surgery was coming to a close, Lily crashed on the table and the surgeons were unable to bring her back. We were devastated. We stayed with this group of veterinarians and techs through the entire ordeal and watched them fight so hard for her and her babies, and it didn't matter that it was a Friday evening on a holiday weekend, they gave it everything they had.

Even though we were unable to save any of them, we still have the bill to pay. We were given a discount through the veterinarian's office and the total outstanding bill is $617.60. We took a risk by taking her in, thinking with everything we had in us that she was going to be okay. We now risk not being able to continue to seek veterinary treatment for future emergency cases. Would you be willing to donate in Lily's memory? Even the smallest amount will help us get this bill paid so that we can continue helping emergency cases that come through our shelter doors.

If you would prefer to donate directly to the veterinarian's office, please give Angela a call at 828.649.3190 so that I can pass along their information.
