Heartworm Positive Dogs Continue to Pour In

We continue to have dogs who need help with the deadly disease dumped on us, or found by employees and some are even brought in by good samaritans.

Vet bills, in addition to rent for our eight locations of the main kennel and other buildings we rent/lease to house the animals continue to be out of control.

The heartbreaking stories of dogs we can't help overwhelm our staff members, but we keep on plugging on along knowing the ones that we can help, are helped with a quality pet food, medical care, love and warmth.

Please consider helping make a dent in our vet bill specifically in regard to the cost-prohibitive heartworm treatment for heartworm positive dogs which is astronomical.

Dogs needing vet care, spay/neuter NEVER ends

The amount of people who continue to ask for veterinary care, spay and neuter for their dogs is never ending. We continue to help as we can afford to do so.

Inasmuch as this is a good thing that people are asking, it's very frustrating when we don't have the money to help them.

It is actually heartbreaking to know someone WANTS to help their dog to get veterinary care or to stop breeding, but can't afford it. Many of these people who contact us have dogs who have had MULTIPLE litters.

Spay and neuter for Pit Bulls and mixes which most will end up dead or being abused for fighting is so important and proactive.

People write to us after their dogs have had litter after litter and want us to take the puppies. We are getting so many calls and e-mails from people not wanting to keep whole litters of puppies with no way of feeding them or caring for them, much less spay or neuter.

We continue to try to help locally in our new area, but we would really love to be able to help on a more national level. Because there are so few resources available in the southern states, we focus on the areas of Louisiana that have no help and very little hope.

Thank you for reading.

Final Report for Our Project

Despite us not getting anywhere near the amount we needed to raise for our spay and neuter mobile veterinary hospital, we got such a better and more realistic idea of just what it would take to run a mobile clinic.

The $100,000 pre-owned vehicle would be the tip of the iceberg as far as the expenses are concerned. The $100,000 we were trying to raise for this altruistic project would have been just a drop in the bucket in the sea that it costs to run a clinic such as the one we wanted.

The equipment alone would have probably been another $100,000.

We did manage to get a lot of pit bulls and mixes spayed and neutered in an area of the state of California which at the time we were offering this service had very few resources for low cost spay and neuter.

Given the fact that Tia and all her crew were pretty much forced to move out of the state, this original project had to be slightly changed because she was not going to remain in California due to the difficult process of obtaining a kennel license for 200 rescued dogs and running a parolee program at the same time.

The end result of this project is that we learned a lot from this process which will leave us better equipped to possibly start a low cost veterinary clinic someday. The population where Tia and the crew live now are a poor and low income people who love their pets, but can't afford to treat their pets with proper veterinary care.
