Imagine It: You find out that there are 6 puppies living in deplorable conditions and the owner is willing to let them go. You agree to take the puppies, but only if the owner will also release the momma dog. He agrees. You start to make plans to take the crew - 6 puppies and momma dog. As you're getting the pieces in place, you get an urgent message: The puppies got into some pills. One has died; another one is sick. Your plans to pick them up later in the day turn into an emergency run to get them NOW. You race over to the home and find that there are now only 4 puppies alive and one is near death. As your loading the puppies and their momma, you spot an older dog with a tumor the size of a grapefruit on her backside and you see that there is something very, very wrong with her right ear. You tell him that you'll need to take her too. He agrees to give her up. You race to the vet with the rag-tag crew. Time is of the essence.

LGR volunteers don't have to imagine this scenario; we lived it yesterday. The puppy that was near death was gone before we left the vet office. The three remaining puppies are at the vet hospital fighting for their little lives. The momma dog is stressed and distraught, but she's physically ok. She had never seen a vet - until yesterday. The older girl needed a vet years ago. Her ear surely caused her tremendous pain and the tumor that was visible on the outside was at least as large inside. Her organs are involved and the vet can't figure out how she's able to eliminate with such extensive injuries. He tells us that the damage to her body is too much; she's been neglected for far too long. The call for help came years too late.

It was an incredibly sad day, but the work isn't done. We have 3 princely puppies who need intense veterinary care and a momma dog who needs to be fully vetted. The estimate for the puppies ranges from $600 to $1,000 per day per puppy. Our hearts ache for the ones that were lost. We can't lose anymore. We need your help.

Any amount - big or small - will help us reach our goal. So much has been lost, but there is hope in the future of the little ones fighting for life. Please help us help them.

PS - We are asking for your help for these pups, but we have a few others in rescue with some big needs, including 2 seniors who are in need of full veterinary care. We are asking for your help with these pups because their needs are so great and because we want to be able to continue to help others in need. Thank you for your support!
