Two doggies that need our help!

Wroooo! Happy Wednesday! I'm not doing a Wordless Wednesday post today, because I want to write about two doggies that need some help.

The furst one is the doggy from my post yesterday, Daisy. Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle told me about her, and her situation is so similar to mine that I feel like we're kindred spirits. She's the doggy that was injured and not taken care of. Now she has had one operation, and she needs another one. The cost of Daisy's medical care is estimated to be between $5,000 and $7,000, and her foster mom has set up a fund to collect any donations that anybody can make. Go to Eduardo's post for the information on how to donate. (Eduardo made this really cool button, and I wanted to post again so I could share it with you!)

The other doggy I want to mention is named Sasha. She is being fostered by Tatum Tot Spice and her family for Utah Collie Rescue, and they are worried that the rescue group doesn't have enough money to pay for Sasha's medical care. Look at this beautiful girl!

You can see that Sasha has a problem with her nose. It actually extends to her mouth, nose and ears, and she is going to have a biopsy done on December 23rd to see what is causing the problem. There are apparently three possibilities, and if you'd like to read about them, please go to Tatum's Mum's bloggy. (At least I'm pretty sure that Cynthia is Tatum's Mum!)

Sasha also has kennel cough (which is being treated right now) and an infection in her mouth. She's got terribly bad teeth, too. There's a lot going on with this girl, and we want to help her cuz she's a really sweet girl! You can go to Tatum's bloggy to find out about donating.

It is really a hard thing for rescues and shelters when they are caring for doggies (and kitties, and all kinds of other animals!) who need medical attention. The Girl has volunteered at our local SPCA for years, and she has seen so many wonderful animals come in who would make the BEST addition to a family (good temperament, sweet and happy disposition). The only problem is that they have some medical need.

The BCSPCA decided to do something just for these animals. They created the Biscuit Fund, the sole purpose of which is to provide emergency medical treatment for homeless and wild animals. I've posted about the Biscuit Fund before here, and my own story is here. Yes, it was the Biscuit Fund that provided the funds for my operation! I even have a button somewhere on my sidebar, BOL.

Not evfurry rescue and shelter organization is lucky enough to have a Biscuit Fund set aside that is specifically for medical care. So they have to raise the money on a case by case basis. I know that this is a hard time of year, especially THIS year, but if you are able to give anything, evfurry dollar counts. Maybe you have to buy a pressie for somebody who loves doggies, and you can make a donation in their name!

The Girl and I have no money to donate (darn disability!), but we're helping Eduardo and Tatum to get the word out. You can help that way too, if you want to mention these two wonderful doggies on your bloggy.

Thank you, my furends, for reading about Daisy and Sasha. I know you all care about them, cuz I know you! Pass the word around the bloggy-world, you never know who will be able to help!

Hey Dannan!

The Biscuit Fund wants to know what inspires people to help animals like you. Please invite The Girl and all her friends to visit Biscuit's Blog and let us know why animals matter! (We have a feeling you provide some pretty awesome inspiration.)

Love from the Biscuit Fund Team
