Meet Fox, or as his first and second foster families call him, Fawkes. He is a spunky little rescue dog in need of funds for medical treatment.

Fawkes experienced the spelling change after his second time through a rescue organization. His first foster momma took the new spelling from the phoenix in Harry Potter. Much like a phoenix, he rose from the ashes of his failed past as if it were nothing and became a beautiful, loving dog again.

In April, Both Fawkes and foster momma #1 knew they had found the perfect family for him. A young boy for him to run around with and a big family full of caring people to love.

However, last week, in the midst of the foster-to-adopt process, tragedy struck. Fawkes' lungs became filled with fluid and he had to be rushed to the emergency vet. He is now fighting hard for his life at at vet specialist clinic. 

His wagging tail says he has a fighting chance, and his foster family, adoptive family, and rescue all want to give him that chance.

But we need your help. Fawkes can only fight for his life while on expensive oxygen therapy.Fawkes' rescue is a small rescue organization with only so many resources, and the people that love him only have so much to give.

By donating to this cause, you are  directly supporting Fawkes' fight for his life. All funds will go directly to his vet bills. 

Every amount counts.  It may only be $5, but that $5 just paid for a few more minutes of the oxygen keeping him alive.

A donation of $50 may seem like nothing in contrast to the $10,000 we need, but that pays for his medicine for the whole day.

The ER Vet was close to $4,000 in total cost, and it costs about $1,200 a day to let him keep fighting.

Please help our handsome little phoenix rise from the ashes again so he can live the life he deserves. 

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc., please don't hesitate to contact foster momma #1, Alisa, at

Thanks in advance.
