It's been a bittersweet week for the martin Pack and rescue. On 11/4 our GA rescue Wufers took ill and things were not looking good for him. I had started the mental processes for saying goodbye to this rescue from GA who nobody else wanted to or could save from the kill shelter he was being held in. He was older, and had a large fatty mass hanging from his back leg. Long story short, Wufers has had the surgery to remove the mass that has enabled him to walking with much greater ease. We have had Wufer since June. I was not ready to give up on him and on Monday morning took him to our vet to see what could be done. After tests he was hospitalized for two days for IV treatments for hepatitis, anemia, and dehydration. He's doing much better and is resting now at home. My costs for his care is $500.00.
At the same time as Wufer was going down on Sunday, I took on and committed to rescuing a little Mini Eskie sitting on death row in the East valley LA shelter. I have had him pulled to safety and is in temp fostering till I can fly him to me in Chicago. I have already invested $150.00 for his release so far. His flight to Chicago including health certificate, kennel, and ticket will run close to $350.00. I have now reached the $550.00 investment mark for the East Valley rescue, now named Paulie.He travels to me on Tuesday. I operate and conduct all my rescues out of my own pocket and usually have less complicated times. Whatever help you can offer is appreciated by these two very deserving rescued Eskies. I love rescuing these down on their luck dogs. But I can't continue to sustain these kinds of financial hits without the help of the dog loving community.
