Dogs drool but Brownies RULE!
Recently our favorite Brownie Troup decided to do a fundraiser for Indi Lab Rescue! Parents have asked us not to list the troop number but let's just say these girls are the best bunch around and they love animals!
The girls raised a much needed $200 for Indi Lab doggies and will be using their donation to sponsor 2 dogs for adoption in our $25 doggie sponsorship program and the rest will go to help Walter!
Thank you girls! We just think you are a wonderful group! Woof!
If anyone wished to match or contribute to this wonderful donation, use the paypal link below. Our pups thank you!
Funds needed for Walter!
Walter Pup-Date! Walter is doing GREAT and is in his foster home now!!! We still have a ways to go, but soon this special boy can go up for adoption. Thank you to all who donated. We still need help so please consider a tax deductibel donation toward this most deserving boy's care!
Many of our friends and Indi Lab adopters and volunteers have been following our sweet rescue Walter the 4 year old purebred Golden Retriever. Walter came to us apparently neutered but very sick with constant urinary tract infections, overall fur lose, odd temperament, large nipples, and other strange symptoms.
After seeing multiple vets, we finally discovered that Walter was in critical conditon due to being cryptorchid (retained internal testicals.) This had created an enlarge prostate, hormonal issues that put his health in serious danger, and the testes themselves had become extremely large tumors causing extreme pain and infection. Within a short period, Walter would have died an extremley painful death.
Dr. Edmunson at Brent Air Animal Hospital who diagnosed Walter before even meeting him, performed emergency surgery to verify her diagnosis and we were told there was a change that he would be so infected and have so much cancer that he would not be woken up. But the miracle is that she was able to save him and he did wake up! All 4 biopsies take show no cancer and we are hopeful Walter will make a full recovery if he can make it out of the woods. He is still hospitalized on IV antibiotics and in critical condition.
This is a very expensive surgery and after adding on the biopsies, hospitalization, bloodwork, ultrasounds and other diagnostics, this will be a very heavy burden for Indi Lab.
We are asking for your help! Please whatever you can manage to donate to help us cover Walter's costs will mean so much. The funds used to pay for Walter mean we cannot help other dogs in need. Every donation is extremely important and valuable to the dogs we save.
Walter thanks you and we do too!
