We want to extend a huge thank you to all of those who donated to the 4 Dogs Vet Bills fundraiser. The response was phenomenal! We also want to acknowledge and thank those of you who shared this post with others. It is amazing how the power of networking can reach out to people all over the world. Without this type of support, we could not have achieved this.
Hunter was rescued from a shelter in the Central Valley after being held as evidence in an animal abuse case. He had been kept in a small filthy chicken coop and had several growths that later were diagnosed as untreated yeast infection. In addition, he also had a large growth. Several of these growths were removed and he was prescribed medication to help control the infection. Hunter has since been adopted and thriving in his new home.
Rommel was rescued from a local kill shelter and had several growths on his body. After having the growths removed, it was discovered that they were an aggressive Mast Cell Tumor (MCT). Rommel’s prognosis isn’t good but he remains active and in good spirits. If we are unable to find him an adopter or a long term foster, we’ll continue to see Rommel continues to get the exercise and attention he needs.
Roxy was rescued from a kill shelter up north. She had come in as a stray with another dog. The other dog was later claimed but the family left Roxy behind. We suspect she was bred several times given the condition of her teats. When she was spayed, Dr Kang removed a few growths giving her, as he would say, a “tune up”. However, a short time later, a few of the other growths needed to be removed. She is doing excellent and is looking great, thanks to her Foster Mom who sees she is getting plenty of exercise.
Harpo was rescued from a kill shelter in Los Angeles and appeared to have contracted kennel cough which isn’t unusual for dogs coming from a high stress environment like the shelter. Concerned that Harpo wasn’t getting any better, he was taken to see Dr Kang who suspected Harpo had something much worse than kennel cough, a chronic respiratory infection. Harpo remained in the care of Dr Kang but got progressively worse and unfortunately passed away.
These four brave dogs came to us from a previous life where their health was compromised. CA GSP Rescue stepped in to pull these dogs and got them the medical care they needed. As an all volunteer organization, we rely on donations to continue our plight to save neglected, abused and unwanted GSP’s.
