Friday WAS and IS dedicated to Mousey, BUT....

I received this email today from Paul - The Director President (oops) of  Rescue The Animals.  Although today was and is dedicated to my best friend Mouse (post below)  I wanted to pass this email and photo on to all you fantastic folk, who helped me raise money ~


"Thank you again for your tremendous donation. We spent a good chunk of the money yesterday treating 16 dogs for heartworms. They will stay in our heartworm wing at the clinic for about 6 weeks before they can be adopted.
With the local heartworm epidemic, we have been having trouble keeping up with the cost of the medications. The Brownwood Humane Society sent us a dog last week to treat because they could not afford to. His picture is attached. Your donors have saved his life along with many others.

Say Hi before you split for Oklahoma!
Thanks again,
Paul Washburn
President
Rescue the Animals, SPCA"

Thanks guys... you rock :O)

Also, than you to everyone who is leaving lovely comments about mousey.... I can't thank you enough :O)

  10. Hey Abi....got my card in the mail on Friday.... it's beautiful...thanks.....

    Wow... you are seeing the fruits of your labours...and headaches... already in action. That's great! It SO makes things worthwhile doesn't it?
    Yep...you got it...ticked off is exactly the same as pissed off. Damn dentists.... I worked for them for years...and they are still selling bread at the price of gold bricks...as I used to tell them often. I was expecting just a checkup and cleaning...but, got a few surprises... mostly becuz the office I go to for cleanings has changed head honchos..... a new young gung ho guy thinks I need some grafts on the tissue to help hold some of my compromised teeth in position a bit better. Easy for him to say...and so easy for the receptionists to just reel off the numbers... which by the way are $3375.00 .... like it is nothing. I almost fainted..even though I was expecting a high amount. But, this.... forget it til next year at the earliest... idiots. Plus.... an old root canal is failing and that will be a decision.... re-do it..as well as the crown on the tooth...or..... have it extracted.....arrrgghhhhh! I don't want to lose any of my teeth.... but, it is a chancy thing to re-do or try to find the reason it is failing in the first place.......sigh.... I know it is best to keep them after all my years in the dental field...but there comes a time when..... perhaps it is just too much money and too much effort to keep every single one.....

    so I'm thinking .... the definition of "a good start" would be about 600 dentists at the bottom of the ocean.....

  15. Abi, this post was so heartwarming - so wonderful to know that a good number of doggies were treated for heartworm.

    You are wonderful also for promoting this fund raiser. I can see Mouse
    panting and grinning widely in Heaven.

    Hugs,

    Sue

  16. Abi you should be very proud of yourself, see what one individual can accomplish, can you imagine what it could be like if there were more people like you?
    May the good lord always bless and keep you safe and sound.
    Blessings,Flora
