I want to let you know about a wonderful organisation that has helped us with Harry, the English bull terrier we adopted last week.
Poor Harry has not been well, he fell sick on Sunday and could not bear his won weight on his back legs, we had to rush him to an emergency vet were they gave him painkillers and something to bring his high temperature down, we brought him home to care for him before taking him back to the vets the next day. They did a lot of tests on him, full bloods etc, he has been on a drip to get his fluids up and painkillers with antibiotics. He will be staying in for two nights (hopefully he will come home tomorrow) He has had X-rays done and fluids taken from his joints, turns out Harry has sever arthritis in his right front elbow and left rear knee. to add to his misfortunes he also has a urinary tract infection that might be causing his high temp.
Some of Harry's history that we know of is that he was in a pound many miles away and three days overdue to being put down. This wonderful organisation had managed to get it put on hold, someone traveled down to get him out and take him to a temporary foster home for a few days, they then got in touch with us to see if we can take him on, the rest you know about :)
The people that run this organisation are all volunteers, what they do is for the love of the dogs, they will not let you adopt by simply asking, they come out and do a thorough home check to make sure both you and your home are suitable, they then try and find a dog that will fit in with your family.
They have also picked up all the costs of Harry's vets bills and I can tell you its mounting up but this is what they do. They do all this through fund raising and donations and nothing else.
Please if you can then help out by donating to their PayPal account of firstname.lastname@example.org
I know times are hard but any amount no matter how big or small will help, thank you in advance from all us including Harry :)
