Las Lomas K9 Rescue - General Operating Expenses

by Las Lomas K9 Rescue & Adoption Foundation, Inc.

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

Hello supporters!

I'm happy to share a story with you about Little Max and how you all helped him get a second chance on life!  He lived in the country and belonged to a man who sadly passed away.  A neighbor spotted him and went to check on him.  Little Max was so sick and nobody even realized it.  When he was diagnosed with parvo, things looked grim.  Fortunately, the veterinarian explained this didn't have to mean the end, this could be treatable.  It was!  Little Max had his treatments and pulled through at 100%.  Just recently, he was healthy enough to be neutered, get all of his shots, and even tested negative for heartworms.  Today, he is a happy dog looking for his forever home!  He gets along well with others and is adjusting to living inside the house.

Little Max sends hugs, love, and many thanks!!

Each and every person can make the difference in the life of an animal, thank you so much for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Kim Miller and all the dogs at Las Lomas K9 Rescue

Hello supporters!

We are happy to report that with your support, we were able to save 3 small dogs whose owner is facing foreclosure.  These dogs would have had no place to go and would have all been put to sleep.

We were able to provide them with their vaccinations and a month supply of dog food.  They are now in a foster home and thriving!

Because of you, they all have a new hope for a second chance at life and are all available for adoption.

Luvvy is a sweet little doxie who loves everyone.  She is a bit of an escape artist but is friendly and adjusting very well. Faith is also a sweet little doxie with lots of love to give.  Charlie is a cute little doxie mix who loves to play fetch with his ball.  

All 3 of them want to thank you for your kindness and generosity!

Thank you all for your continued support helping the animals in need!

Sincerely,

Kim

Hello Las Lomas supporters!

We are so happy to report, that with your generous donations, Baron had surgery to remove multiple mass cell tumors and it was a success!  Baron is a Doberman who I witnessed being thrown from a car.  We chased the guys down as Baron was running behind them.  They denied it but it was obvious.  Poor Baron was sitting at the window wanting to shake hands with the guy.  They made a lot of excuses and I brought him home.  He is an awesome dog and so loving and kind.  He developed cancer and we didn't know what the outcome would be.  Thanks to all of you, and an awesome vet, Baron had surgery.  Dr. Bowman felt confident he caught it in time and was able to remove all or most of it.  Baron went back for a follow up and there is no sign of the cancer!  We are so happy to have been able to save this sweet dogs' life!  He needs to follow up with the vet every 6 months but his future is looking brighter because of all of you!

We were also able to help BeBe & Little Man.  They are a pair of doxies who were left behind when their Father passed away.  They both had a bad case of ehrlichia and BeBe had anaplasmosis as well.  Both of these are serious tick borne diseases.  Their blood counts were through the roof and both had to be on medication.  Little Man is out of the woods and BeBe is getting there, slowly but surely!  These little senior dogs have never been outside, their owner worried snakes would get them, but are thriving with us!

On top of all this, we were able to keep all the dogs well fed and buy enough hay to get them through the Winter!  Plus we hav some exciting new things to share with you soon!  You have all been so generous!  Donations the past few months have exceeded our expectations and we are so blessed and excited about the wonderful things we are doing together for the betterment of the animals!  We have the most awesome supporters and you have all made such a huge difference in the lives of so many dogs.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!  There aren't enough words to say how much we appreciate you!!

Many thanks, love and hugs,

Kim and all the dogs of Las Lomas

Hello Las Lomas supporters!!

It never ceases to amaze me how awesome all of you are for your support in helping the dogs at Las Lomas K9 Rescue!  With many thanks and appreciation, I am happy to report that four wonderful puppies who came down with parvo have all been treated, released, and totally survived a parvo outbreak!!  It was a very scary and touch and go situation but everyone came out on top, and we could not have done it without you!!  They are now happier and healthier than ever and Polar has already found his forever home!  

I will never be able to find the words to express how much all of you mean to us and the dogs.  We are making a tremendous difference in the lives of many dogs.  This is all because of YOU!

Our next project will be saving 36 dogs from an independent private rescuer who is being forced to close down due to lack of resources, All of the dogs are in a safe location, but dog food donations have been really hard to come by and I feel strongly positive that because of all of you, these dogs will never go hungry.

The dogs at Las Lomas are truly blessed to have such wonderful supporters and they send lots of love and puppy kisses your way!  Their future is much brighter with you on their side!

I personally could not have gotten a better Christmas gift than the news from the veterinarian that all these puppies were going to pull through.  Happy tears streamed down my face and we owe it all to you!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and Merry Christmas to all!

The group picture in this report is of the 36 dogs I mentioned above.  Thank you all again! 

Very Sincerely,

Kim
