Please help me provide Veterinary care for my rescued animals!

Hi there,

I am a Medically Disabled "mommy" to four fur-kids.

When I rescued these guys, I had more than enough money to care for them and no reason to think that my situation would change. Now, however, I am supporting myself and these babies on less than 11000.00 per year, so any and all donations will be greatly appreciated. :o)

Emily is a 10-year old Pit Bull who was being used as a "bait dog" by Pit Bull fighters. She was found abandoned and starving in the streets. When I rescued her, she weighed only 40 pounds and had no light in her eyes. Now, 25 pounds heavier and with a spring in her step, Emily is my constant companion and guardian. I had already adopted Emily before I became disabled, so the decrease in my income has hit us pretty hard.

Sirius is a 7-year old rescued Maine Coon who came to me after his prior owners divorced in 2005. He is a big-boned, gentle giant who does NOT meow-he yodels, sing-songs, tweedles, twirps and squeaks. He is the most expressive animal I have ever met and his "human" expressions never fail to make people laugh.

Noah is my little old man. At age 14, he has been with me since he was 8 months old. In 1998, he was brought into the Veterinary Clinic where I worked after being hit by a car. He had a broken leg, was emaciated, flea-ridden and acted as though he had literally never been petted or talked to by a human. It took Noah a long time to bond with me, but now he gazes at me adoringly and quietly demands attention on a regular basis. Noah was recently diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure, so I'm administering daily treatments of Subcutaneous fluids, which he is tolerating really well. Noah spends his days bullying the Pit Bull, enjoying "mommy supervised" outdoor time and demanding attention.

Enoch is my unruly teenager. He is an FIV-positive kitty who I rescued 6 years ago from a different Vet Clinic where I had worked. He receives daily treatment for FIV, which consists of Immune-boosting supplements, a good diet, a low-stress environment and daily cuddling. Although many FIV+ kitties have a life span of 3 years, Enoch is almost 7 years old and behaves like an evil little imp when he feels that he's being ignored. Enoch is directly responsible for 99% of my shattered crockery. ;)
