UPDATE ON BUDDY

Buddy image3 (2)

Buddy, the 5 year old Bengal that was attacked by a coyote late last week is doing ok!

We were contacted by Central Park Animal Hospital on behalf of Buddy and his guardian for financial help towards the cost of the surgery to repair the bite wound and the dislocated hock joint. They desperately needed our help, and after we approved the application, we reached out to our followers for the extra bit in donations that we needed to make this happen.

Buddy had his surgery on Sunday afternoon, but unfortunately the infection had spread. The specialist felt an amputation was in Buddy’s best interest and our own medical consult, Dr. Walton, also agreed.  Animals are amazing as we all know and can manage quite well after an amputation. Buddy was home by Monday and doing ok, but being a Bengal he is quite rambunctious, so he is back in hospital for a few days to ensure he rests and starts his recovery out right.

Thank you to those that gave that extra bit, through our “YourCaring” page and email transfers.  With your support, Buddy will have a second chance at a long and happy life!

We will keep you updated!

WE NEED HELP FOR BUDDY!

We have received an emergency request to assist a 5 year old Bengal named Buddy.  He was attacked by a coyote and needs surgery to repair the bite wound and a dislocated hock joint.  The prognosis is good but we need your help to assist Bengal and his guardian.  It’s been a tough time for the two right now and we want to help as much as we can.  The surgery cost is between $1500 & $1700, and it can’t wait. Good Samaritans have already directly donated a bit to the cost, but we are still a bit short of funds. Can you help?  Any amount is greatly appreciated.

We have approved the application for funding, and have setup a YOUCARING page for him … CLICK HERE, or you can donate through our website:

Thank You for any assistance, every bit helps!

But more importantly, we raised much needed funds for the memorial account!!!!  We thank everyone who supported us this weekend with donations, buying our blankets & crate pads and tickets on our raffle basket!

UPDATE … where we are today

updateAs you all know “In Memory Of Maggie May” is very dear to my heart and I will never give up, I will always do my very best to help those pets that truly need our help.  Fundraising is hard because it is tough times out there for many of us. But, it is  discouraging when donations don’t come, especially when we need it most. We are a non-profit organization, but not a registered charity (yet!) because we are small and need people to join us to help us grow, but it does not mean that our hearts are not in the right place.  We donate our time and absorb much of the costs personally.  We look for great deals on fabric so that the majority of our sales are directed to the memorial fund. We are very diligent in our application process, we work closely with our medical consult, and we ensure that those truly in need receive our help. Did you know that to date we have paid out close to $15,000 to pets in need? Can you help us continue our cause …. we have 426 followers, can you imagine if we received a $20 donation from each, that’s $8520! Small amounts add up fast!


Our main priority right now is to help Bambi, a 7 month old Chihuahua with a broken leg.  Her application came in last evening, we know our funds are short, because we have other pending requests for a pup with IVD disease, a kitty with diabetes that is not eating, and another that needs a lump removed. You can donate via paypal or email transfer.


13411988_10154927872900299_7560043588280525379_oAWe recently assisted Mittens with her surgery. The best feeling in the world is knowing  how much our help means to the fur parents, but we could not do it without your support!
