Luke has been rescuing dogs and cats in his neighborhood of Antipolo for several years now. He finds the saddest animals,usually left in dumpsites or alleys to die. Luke has no steady income and earns very little from freelance computer repair work. Despite not having much for his own food and for the care of his mom, he still manages to find ways to care for 13 dogs and 8 cats. Right now a dog he rescued last year has been diagnosed with canine TVT and needs three doses of chemotherapy. He has to bring Leo from his house in the outskirts of the city (Cogeo) to the UP Veterinary Teaching Hospital. He has no vehicle and has to find vehicles that some may be willing to rent out to ferry the dog. But that is not easy and also costs money.
We are asking for help for the chemo sessions of Leo. Right now Leo in undergoing resistance building and has to eat liver and chicken to improve the condition of his blood and make his system strong enough to take the chemo sessions. Luke suspects that another dog he rescued a couple of years ago may also have the same canine TVT, and so Magda is under observation.
Another dog has been bitten by a bug in his ear which is now swelling and Luke regularly drains the blood out of the swelling. It also has to be checked for antibiotic treatment or anti-parasites treatment. In the meantime, Luke is also feeling the impact of the stress of having to care for the animals, get them well and find homes for them eventually, while not having much to eat himself.
We are asking for help for the immediate needs of Luke (chemo), Sugo (ear swelling).
Thank you so much!

Leo's first chemoUpdate posted by Karen BC at 05:24 pm
Leo had his first chemo session on April 12 and will have the next one on April 26. After the session he seemed a bit dizzy or groggy on his way home in the taxi that Luke hired for the afternoon to bring Leo from Antipolo to UP Vet Hospital. . . . .

It's Tuesday morning and Handsome Leo is on his way to the UP Vet with his medicines. Luke was able to ask his neighbor to help him by renting out his van and driving him to UPVet. The expenses including Jollibee lunch for the son who will drive is 1,000.

We were able to raise P9,839 as of today. Some from here and some were sent directly to my BPI account. So I deposited 10k into the account of Luke. There are some fees removed by GoGetFunding and by paypal. I covered up the whole name for privacy of the. . . . .
