Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Elderly girl needs a special person

Postby BaltimoreBully » Sat Dec 27, 2008 8:25 pm

Moon is about 14 years old. She is currently at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter located at 301 Stockholm st. Baltimore, MD (where I work) She desperately needs a place to live out her golden years. Moon is wobbly when first getting up and on slippery floors, she is very thin and her teeth are awful. Despite being in the shelter for a month she is the sweetest old girl I have ever met and doesn't pay much attention to the other dogs. She loves treats and her whole body wiggles with delight every time I go by her cage. I would really love to bring Moon home with me but I just can not afford vet care for her now. I'm hoping for a little after Christmas miracle here.
Oh yeah, her adoption fee is waived until the end of the year

Yeah, her abdomen is not horribly bloated anymore and she has gained about 2 pounds. These photo's actually make her look not so skinny but I can feel every bone in her body when I pet her. She could use a bath and nail trim to start.

If you could get some sponsering for her expenses, would you be able to take her home???

Murfins, If I could get enough sponsership money to get a exam, bloodwork, urinanylisis, etc I would definitely get her out of there right away. She needs a geriatric workup badly. Between Jezzy and the expenses from the last 2 dogs we've pulled from shelters I just can't afford this one. I took a huge pay cut when I came to this shelter and have to pay rent now as well so I'm really struggling. Normally I'd just put it on the credit card and worry about it later...

I would definatly chip in to help you. I hate seeing these beautiful seniors ending up at shelters.

Maybe you can get a donation thing going on here so you know you will be set with the funds. Good for you for wanting to help this girl.

Becky, wrong dog. I was taking a 10 month old boxer to the vet for another rescue.
If anyone wants to donate towards vet care for Moon my vet is Mountainside Veterinary Hospital. You can call with a credit card (410)833-8085 or I have a paypal account under midatlanticbullybuddies@yahoo.com
Thanks everyone!

If $ is needed for this old gal I'll chip in.

I have a soft spot for seniors, but my current senior requires so much I know I could not add another at this time.

Please keep us posted!

I would post this in general too. That section gets alot more visits. Does your vet take donations? Last time I tried donating to a vet, they were clueless about what I was talking about.

My vet is really good about taking donations for my rescue/foster dogs. Just tell them it's for Rachel/pit rescue. I will go ahead and post in general too. Are we allowed to ask for donations on here?

She's so sweet. If she was not so far I'd bring her here for her final days.
