Status: PALLIATIVE CARE SECURED; FUNDS NEEDED TO HELP WITH TREATMENT COSTS
Information from pound pullers:
URGENT CASE – FOSTER HOME REQUIRED FOR ELDERLY STAFFIE – SKDC/NKDC area,
brought into vets, after found straying, has a lump on back leg. Temperament unknown but hope to update asap. We will vet treat. Can anyone help?
UPDATE: from what vets have observed, this girl is not other dog friendly. Thought to have been dumped at vets by owner due to coming in with matching lead and collar.
UPDATE THURSDAY 9th May: It may be the case this girl needs a home to give palliative care and keep her comfortable. She is covered in lumps and growths (will be looked over by a vet) but with her age it may not be fair to put her through so much. For now she isn’t in pain it seems so we will see how she goes and keep everyone up to date.
UPDATE 21ST MAY 2019: PALLIATIVE CARE SECURED; FUNDS NEEDED TO HELP WITH TREATMENT COSTS
*on average, it costs £150-£200 to pay the rescue costs (neutering, vaccination, chipping, worming, flea treatment) for every dog rescued from the pound, and more if they need to be transported and moved into EB before they find a rescue space. Please note that funds alone do not guarantee a dog’s safety, as there are many other factors to take into account such as availability of emergency boarding, rescue kennels, transport and rescue space. They do, however, provide a huge help to the dogs and their helpers in paying for their vital and expensive rescue costs.
