Hello supporters!

We are reaching out today because Bailey and Candy both had cancerous tumors that needed to be removed.  Not only did they have the tumors that are visible, they both had large tumors that couldn't be seen.  Fortunately, the vet was able to remove it all, on both dogs.  Bailey had complications (swelling and draining) which required two emergency trips.  The second time, they decided to keep her a few days.  She is still there recovering but is doing very well.  We decided to leave Candy there for a few days just in case she had any problems over the weekend but so far she has not.  They are both expected to be released next week.

We have raised enough money for one of the surgeries through friends and family but still need help with the second one.  Our donations have dramatically decreased and with the costs of dog food and heartworm prevention, we have literally exhausted our funds.

Please help as much as you can.  We are expecting our balance next week to be well over $1,000.  

We have so much work left to do and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!

Sincerely,

Kim and all the dogs at Las Lomas K9 Rescue

Hello Everyone!

This past quarter, we spent all of our donations on dog food.  We are thankful for all of you who continue to help us and appreciate those who have helped us in the past.  We understand times are hard; a few of our donors are no longer able to help due to loss of jobs. While we fully understand, it has honestly taken a toll on us.  Our dog food bill is $200 a week and that doesn’t count the dogs in foster.  We are barely able to keep up with that lately and regret we haven’t been able to help very many new dogs.  The cost of vet care is rising as well and we realize we can only bring in what we can afford to feed and properly vet.

We are hopeful donations will pick back up.  Please help us spread the word.  Together, we can all make a difference and continue our mission in saving abandoned animals and providing quality care to the ones currently in our program.

Our website hasn’t been updated; we have been experiencing Internet issues and currently looking for a new provider.  We hope to have it updated soon and apologize for the inconvenience.

Attached are a few pictures of our most recent adoptions over this past weekend.  We are making not only dogs happy, but the families who adopt them too!

Thank you so much for your support, it is truly appreciated.  The dogs send their love!

Sincerely,

Kim Miller

Hello everyone!

Frank came to us as an owner surrender.  He was an escape artist and would always jump the fence and run off.  He never had any medical care in his home.  Thanks to your help, we were able to get him fully vetted.  He was heartworm negative!  Yay!!  He had all of his shots updated, has been neutered, and is now on heartworm prevention.  He was recently adopted and is in a loving home.  Frank is living in an apartment now, so no more escaping the yard for him.  He also has two new friends, cats, who he has gotten along really well with.  Frank is enjoying a life with lots of attention and trips to the beach!!  He is learning new things and living a great life!

Thank you for making a difference in his life!!

Sincerely,

Kim

Hello Las Lomas K9 Rescue Supporters!

It's been a rough start to the New Year. Donations were at an all time low during the past few months.  However, thanks to your help, we were able to purchase some dog food and some hay for the Winter.  We are thankful for any help we can get, without you, we couldn't continue our mission!

Volunteers put the boards up before the first freeze and helped to cover the concrete with hay.  The dogs really love the hay. They play in it, toss it all over the place, and then enjoy curling up for a rest.

We have vaccinations coming up, spays/neuters needing to be done, and hoping this quarter we might be able to take care of some of that.  

The dogs are doing well and they send their love and thanks!!

Thank you again for your support!

Sincerely,

Kim and all the dogs of Las Lomas

Barney Joe had a tumor on his leg that was growing pretty quickly.  It was suspected to be mass cell cancer but the chances of removing it were in his favor.  He had the surgery, the vet felt comfortable he was able to remove it all, and now Barney Joe is on his way to being cancer free!!  He also has a skin condition that is rare, called pemphigus.  He's been on medications for that and it is also clearing up.  We are so thankful to our supporters for helping us save him!

Our bill was just over $1,000 for all of his treatment (lab work, pathology reports, blood work, medications, surgery) so we still need some help.  This is also the time of the year we need hay for the comfort of the dogs during the winter season. 

Your support has helped us save these dogs and we are very thankful to all of you!  Wishing you have safe and happy holiday season.   See you next year!

 

Sincerely,

Kim and the dogs of Las Lomas
