A Few Special Dogs

Posted by Furkids | Wednesday, July 31st

Currently we have a few dogs in need of extra special care, and we would love your help caring for them! These three dogs will cost us more than $2,500 in medical treatment. Donate to their care today!

Hi, I'm Abalone. I was rescued as a stray in Gwinnett county with my brother Scallop. After a short time with Furkids/SDR, I didn't feel well. I had a slight fever and didn't really want to eat much. They found me a nice foster family to take care of me, but I just didn't feel right. The doctors say I have pneumonia. I had to stay at a vet clinic for three days on IV fluids and antibiotics. They made me feel a little better, and I am starting to eat again. My vet bills will be more than $600. Even though I know they will take care of me and pay for it, a little help would really be appreciated.

Fillmore Needs Leg Surgery

Posted by Furkids | Wednesday, July 17th

Fillmore was found running stray in a rural county with a limp. He was placed in a secluded back room at animal control for weeks before our team found him. Luckily we rescued him just in time!

Since his time with us Fillmore has proven to be a wonderful dog! He loves car rides and is playful with other dogs. He is mild mannered, sweet, great on a leash and potty trained. What more can we say?!

Fillmore is now in a loving foster home ready to help him through his upcoming procedure and recovery.

Fillmore can barely stand on his back leg and hops using his three good legs to get around. We know it must be uncomfortable for him. Fillmore either needs FHO surgery, which takes a few months to heal from, or amputation. Of course we want to save his leg, but we won't know what is truly needed until they begin surgery on his leg.

You can help by donating to Fillmore's surgery. It is estimated to cost $800. Thank you in advance!

Help Baby Lazarus

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, July 16th

We never expect these kinds of emergencies, but we could not turn a blind eye to Lazarus when our volunteer found him dodging cars in middle of the road. Upon first exam, the greatest concern were the deep wounds covered in maggots and a possible infection. Those are all cleaned up now, but pneumonia is our greatest concern now. Please help us continue our care for Lazarus by contributing to vet bills totaling over $1200. 
Thank you!
