Hi everyone. It's me, Freya. I've never actually done a fundraiser for my own work, so I'm really nervous and hoping this goes well. Let me explain.
Thanksgiving weekend, our cars were broken due to an engine issue. Thousands of dollars went into repairs and we weren't able to go visit my family that weekend. However, A mother german sheperd, her bff, and her six puppies were at the shelter and needed to be pulled before the holiday weekend. They were rescued from a hoarding case. If I had gone to ontario to visit my family that weekend, I wouldn't have been able to save those pups and their mom.
When I went to pull the pups at the shelter with my friend,
we noticed a cardboard box full of six 3-day old puppies. They had been dumped at a Home Depot. These pups were so small...they didn't even have their eyes open yet. If we had not been there, at the right place at the right time, those puppies would have been taken to the back of the shelter and euthanized. The shelter simply doesn't have the resources to bottle feed six babies, six times a day. Not to mention, puppy formula is expensive.
My friend and I left the shelter that afternoon with 13 dogs. The biggest dog rescue operation they OR I have ever done. I took the 8 shepards and another foster took the bottle babies.
All these puppies need feed/formula, vaccinations, and spay/neuter. I simply don't have the means to pay for all of it. I can give them everything I have. All of my time, energy, and love. But this is the first time I have ever had to ask you all to help me. I cannot bear the cost to spay/neuter all the shepards myself. Even the shelter don't have the resources either. I'm praying we can meet our goal. This has been a very difficult week and I would love nothing more than a win for us and these pups.I am forever grateful for you all. You guys are so incredibly special. I know we can do this. Please share and contribute what you can. If you include your address, we will send you our family Christmas card/thank you note. Happy Holidays you guys. We love you so heckin much. ;)
