I first saw Colby in a picture a friend posted on Facebook of a dog that she was treating at her Vet Tech School with a caption that read "She needs a home!". So what do I do? I take a look and I swore it looked like the spitting image of my current girl, Payton. So I spread the work, tried to find someone to pull her from the shelter, with no luck. Time was certainly running out and last minute, the ladies at the NC Gastonia Animal Control took pity on me and helped me adopt her. The next day, I drove the almost three hours down to Gastonia to pick up my new pup. And as she settled in and made friends with Payton and my roommates, I began to consider the major flaw in my adoption plan. Colby is heartworm postiive and I am a college student. I spent the first few weeks getting her recovered from her spay surgery, flea free and mannered. I then took the plunge after talking with her vets and scheduled her heartworm treatment. Treatment totalled $444, but that didn't include the rest of her care, adoption fee, transportation, etc. As of today, Nov. 11, 2013 costs have totaled just under $1,000 and donations have come to roughly $400. This is where you guys come in. I am asking you to please help me suppot this wonderfully kind hearted girl, who definitely has not had the easiest life until now, and get her become a healthy and happy dog. Donations go directly to Colby's care and treatment and anything that goes along with it. My goal in all of this is to give an incredibly sweet, loving, big hearted (literally) dog a second chance at finding her forever home. She will be available following a clean bill of health to the right person and family. Please consider donating to such a worthy girl.
