Funds needed to help with Pom vet bills! No donation to small!

Picture of quilt
On Monday, Sept. 26,2011 at 12:00 midnight, we will end the fundraising for Amanda, with the quilt as a gift to one lucky donor. We have taken in a little over $300.00 and her vet bill for Saige was $800.00+. We want to help her as much as possible to pay that bill since she has not worked in over 6 months. I know funds are tight for everyone but every donation helps no matter how small. Remember if you donate $5.00 or more, your name will get put in the drawing for this lovely quilt donated and made by Nancy Jackson. (One entry per donor) Please help if you can. Thank you in advance and thanks to all of you who have already donated.

URGENT...loving foster parent needed for Pit Bull in Las Vegas!!

This beautiful girl was left in desert and luckily the Animal Hospital on Nellis was able to help her. She was pregnant and not in very good shape. She is doing great, she is fully vaccinated, spayed and chipped.

We are looking for a foster or forever home, we have an adoption event coming up Oct 22nd and hopefully will find her a home. The problem is no one is at the vet center on Nellis AFB during the weekend so we have been boarding her over weekend and not sure how much longer we can do it.

Even if you can foster over weekend anything would help.

She is not aggressive but doesn't seem to care for other dogs right now, we thought maybe because she was pregnant so we are having our trainer evaluate her.

Please contact myself or Alison if you maybe able to help, not sure how much longer Nellis AFB will let them keep her on base, since they have the rule of no pits no one on base can foster her.
