- Letter from Ally's Mom
- Ally New Pics
Last week, Ally had her mammary tumor
and also was spayed. She is still restricted in her activities, but
has snuck in a few joyful runs in the back yard when she thought her mom
wasn't watching. We will update in another few days, on her
Update and New Pics
Ally, aka Scooby, has
been in long term care and recuperating on Long Island for the past 10
Ally has come a long way since being
rescued, by a police officer in South Carolina, last winter. She is still struggling with her
health. She has been treated for Heart Worms and Pin worms.
After two treatments, Ally was finally declared free of Heart Worms in
October. She still has a mammary tumor that has not been removed,
and Ally has not yet been spayed, awaiting an improvement in her
health. She is now being treated by a veterinary neurologist
for muscle twitches, and loss of weight.
On a good note, every day Ally seems
to be coming more and more out of her shell. She still spends too
much time, staring up at the ceilings, but now she can play with her three
brothers, Willie, Chuck, and Ben. (Exercise was restricted while she
had Heart Worm.) She loves to snuggle on the couch or bed with her
foster Mom, and has a favorite stuffed pig toy that she loves to play
with. And she is starting to put some weight on with the help of
some very expensive daily medication.
Ally did not have an easy start to life, and
she still has quite a ways to go. Her vet expenses are
approaching $3000 and counting. You can help offset the cost
of Ally's care and recuperation, by sponsoring

2/24/02 - Ally-Sheba
is in desperate need of your help. A police officer saw her tied in a backyard
in South Carolina. She was in such bad condition that the animal control officer
removed her from the home. She was extremely underweight. He had never seen a
dog thinner then she was. All were concerned she would not make it.
Sheba is now
safe in Massachusetts. Her problem now is she is heartworm positive. Our vet
treated her this past week and now she needs a foster or forever home to
recuperate in. Sheba needs a quiet environment for 6 more weeks.
of Sheba were taken in the home she was brought to before her treatment. She had
gained a good amount of weight in the 2 months she was there. Unfortunately they
cannot take her back because of a family health issue. Sheba is still at our
veterinarian's office. If you can help Sheba please e-mail the contact below.
