We raised a little over $9,000 in two weeks which was critical to replenish the medical fund to help dogs get the vet care they need. You're awesome!
For dogs like Danny Boy!
MEDICAL COMFORT FUNDRAISER
We are asking for your help to replenish our dwindling medical fund for dogs in need! So far, in 2019 alone we have vetted 162 dogs (including 6 stray kittens) who have been in desperate need of veterinary care. This includes spay and neuter, vaccinations, heartworm treatment, treatment of tick-borne diseases, costly dental treatment, urinary tract infections, cancer, debilitating arthritis, painful ear and skin infections, fractures, embedded chains, treatment of flea infestations and a variety of other injuries and illnesses from which so many dogs suffer; they are forced to live outdoors 24/7 without basic daily care or vet care.
While we can build fences, deliver dog houses, water bowls, new tethers, and dog food, we realize the quality of life for these dogs is downright miserable if they are sick or in pain. There are occasions we are met with dogs who are days away from being inhumanely euthanized in someone's backyard.
Vet care comprises over 50% of our annual budget. The combination of our vets who offer us discounted rates, and the generosity of our donors, allows us to greatly improve our dogs' lives. When we meet these dogs for the first time, most have never been to a vet. In some instances, lack of financial resources is the causative factor; the family cares about the dogs, but they simply can't afford vet care. In other cases, it is because providing vet care is on the lower end of the priority scale. Regardless of reason, our primary objective is to relieve dogs of their suffering by providing quality vet care. Building relationships with our owners has demonstrated that most people strive to provide healthcare for the animals, and simply need to be shown the 'how-to' of animal husbandry, along with financial assistance.
During the next two weeks we will highlight several dogs whose lives have been dramatically transformed because of the help provided by DDB-BR. I can't reiterate it strongly enough that without the support of you, our donors, DDB-BR could not improve the lives of the dogs we help.
We have an ever-growing list of dogs who are dependent on us for help, without which they'll likely be doomed to an unhappy, often painful existence. Our goal is $10,000! Yes, we are reaching for the stars, but we believe that with the support of our followers and supporter, we can make it happen.
