9-11-13 Gene - Severe neglect , numerous medical issues
Gene, was believed to have been one of three cats belonging to an elderly man who entered a nursing home one year ago. It is believed that the pet cats were released to fend for themselves. He has a respiratory illness so severe that he was unable to breathe well and his eyes were not visible through the discharge. Gene was covered in fleas so severe that he is anemic. He is emaciated with prominent bones and he is unable to close his mouth due to a past jaw fracture. In addition, Gene suffered from several infected teeth that were removed, and had a sore on his lip that added to his tremendous mouth pain. He is expected to recover with time and loving care. Gene's medical care has almost reached one thousand dollars and is expected to exceed that. http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/saving-gene-a-stray-cat-/84742

9-2-13 Chloe - Rescued Beagle with Microflaria
We're a pit bull rescue, but we ended up caring for a Beagle (how could you turn down those sad eyes)!!! She has an extremely bad case of microfilaria. It's a very long process to treat her, and very expensive.
Chloe went to our vet this morning and when the tests were run they found little baby heartworms swimming all over the place. Usually you dont see that but the vet says this is one of the worst cases she has seen and she is really surprised that Chloe survived her spay surgery. (She had surgery somewhere else) What this means is that we have to treat her slowly so that she survives. It will extend the treatment and require double the cost. We need to raise $500.00 more dollars to cover Chloe's treatment ASAP. We have to show her that life on a chain didnt mean a death sentence. As a new rescue we don't have the funds to treat her, but we refuse to turn our back on her. So we're begging for help. www.facebook.com/adoptapitrescue

9-2-13 Sam - Huge Abcess
HI, my name is Sam. My mom rescued me from the mean streets of NJ. One month ago, I was playing with my brothers and one of them scratched me. Mom didnt find out because back then my fur was thick and luxurious - and when she did, I already had a bad infection, which turned into an abscess. Then necrosis set in and my vet had to excise away the whole area. I spent a long time in kitty ICU. My mom visited me every day. i lost a lot of weight so they had to insert a feeding tube which i hate. My poor mom brings me to work with her so she can feed me every 4 hours. I've got a long road ahead, but I'm getting better every day. And when the feeding tube is gone and my fur grows back, i'll be as handsome as i ever was. My vets have been wonderful; practically saved my life but the bills are astronomical. Mom is having a hard time paying them. Can you help her? She deserves it not just because she's my mom , but she's a warrior when it comes to caring for stray cats around our town. She takes care of 120 cats daily not only feeding them but provides all of them with shelter and feeding stations. My mom has single handedly been responsible for TNRing ( TRAP, NEUTER RETURN ) literally hundreds of cats. I'm not good at math but even i know that's probably thousands of kittens saved from being born into a hard, hungry life on the streets. Like i was - until Mom found me.

9-2-13 Autumn, torn acl
Autumn is a foster dog in our dog rescue, UnChain NY. She has torn her ACL and needs surgery as soon as possible as she is in tremendous pain. Right now we have to give her pain medication and sedatives. She has to be confined in a crate in order for her not to further hurt herself. We are trying to raise the funds as quickly as possible so this poor girl does not suffer anymore, she has had a rough start at life. Autumn used to be chained up in NY City, then she was rescued by another group only to be mauled by 9 dogs! She sustained many injuries during the attack. That is when our rescue took her in. Autumn does not deserve to ever feel a day of pain again, so please help us to help her get through this quickly.

9-8-13 Andrea - Rescued Senior Dog
Andrea was picked her up from the Pasadena Animal Shelter this afternoon! She is estimated to be around 7 years old and what a little love! When she was spayed yesterday, they found 2 of her breast have Mammary Gland Tumors. She will need to have blood work, surgery to remove the tumors, and then have them biopsied. She also is badly in need of a dental. When I picked her up yesterday from being spayed they said she had pieces of teeth falling out while she was there! Her estimated medical bills will be around $1,000.00 and Southern Comforts just can not afford this at this time. Please donate to help this sweet girl get the surgery she so desperately needs. Y

9-8-13 Ally2 - abandoned dog - very ill
Ally was rescued from a supermarket parking lot in Yonkers on Monday afternoon, Labor Day. She was so weak, she could barely move. Her body was so riddled with infection that she smelled horrible. Her paws were a bloody, swollen mess. She remains at the vet and will for the foreseeable future. What the vets do know is that she is one very sick little girl. What we don't yet know is what, exactly, is going on with her. She's severely anemic and weak. Her sodium levels are off, her proteins are low and her red blood cell count is also low. She's had blood work/labs run several times already and the people at the lab this morning said they are shocked she's not in a coma! She remains on IV antibiotics, fluids & painkillers. She is being kept comfortable & we are committed to doing what it takes to get this girl back on her feet!!! Please continue to pray for her and share her story! Her vet bill is well into the thousands, so any donations are appreciated. Check her page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Allys-Struggle-for-Survival/654951941182223

His surgery is scheduled for September 18th and any help with the cost to help Bommer have a fixed up mouth would be appreciated.

9-12-13 Otis - Splenic tumor
Otis was rescued from death row at NYC ACC on 7/22/13 and it was clear he had been someone's pet. Most likely upon his declining health, he was dumped on the streets of NY. He was picked up by Animal Control and listed in severe medical condition and to be destroyed. We rescued him from the shelter and welcomed him into our home, into our family, our pack. After several trips to the vet, he was diagnosed with a splenic tumor (among other ailments). This type of tumor can be very dangerous as it could rupture at any moment causing internal bleeding and most likely death. Our amazing vets are confident that they can remove the tumor and allow Otis to continue his fight for a better life. Stay up to date on Otis's progress by following Kongo's Page
