Help Homeless Pets

bring-pets-home-logI received a couple of e-mails last week with information on a new website that allows visitors to “obtain valuable pet care information, interact with fellow pet lovers in an online community, and shop online to raise money for homeless pets.”  What I like is that you get to choose which shelter your purchases will support, so you can keep your money local.

Can You Help Tigger Fight Canine Cancer?

Received this information from Kathy DeRay, who is trying to save her dog, Tigger, a second time.  After rescuing Tigger 3 years ago, she is now trying to help him survive liver cancer, but as you can imagine, it is quite expensive.  If you can help her with even a small donation, please visit her fundraising site.

Those of you who are regular readers know I lost my Beagle mix, Molly, to lymphatic cancer many years ago, and more recently lost my Coonhound/Lab Mix, Tracy, to cancer of the jaw.  In both cases, they did not respond to any of the treatments we tried, but it looks like Tigger may have a chance.  Maybe if we can help Kathy raise the funds she needs, she won’t have to go through the heartbreak so many of us have experienced.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
