Max Needs Help

🐾💕From Max’s Fospice Mom. “Cuteness Overload”🐾💕

“Max’s Mass Cell Tumor is shrinking. His next appointment is the first week in April.” 

No matter how long, I just want him to feel that he is loved again and will be loved to his last breath. Just breaks my heart that somebody gave up this sweet soul.”

Max was rescued from PBCACC. No one wanted to adopt. He was marked “For Rescue Only” as he had tumors on his back, face & lip which were suspected to be cancer. 

With Max’s upcoming surgery on his face and lip. Plus the other surgery to remove tumors on his back  and chemotherapy to shrink the tumors on his face prior to surgery, Max’s medical bills will be a minimum of $2,500.00. 

The paperwork from the shelter reflected that Max was only 5 years old. We felt that he deserved a chance at a Happy, Healthy and Whole Life. 

If you would like to assist towards Max’s upcoming surgery, any amount would be greatly appreciated. Donations may be made via Destiny’s PayPal

As always thank you for your continued support. Please keep Max in your loving thoughts and prayers🐾💕🙏

Love at first sight!

“Ollie has been Great! So good in the car on the way home, he sat up front with Adam, and I sat in the back between Maggie & Marvin. We’re (dogs & me) letting Ollie do what ever he wants, and take his time getting used to the routine around here. He’s a sweetheart! Ate all his dinner tonight, which some dogs don’t do the 1st night due to all the excitement! You & Jackie have been great, I was ready to give up when I got Ollie’s listing and told myself one last try!  So glad I did! All 3 dogs slept for 3 hrs. when we got home. Last photo of Ollie with a quote, “Who says a big dog won’t fit in a puppy bed?”

I love to sit in his lap and sleep.
Saturday we were home but today we are going to the pet store and for a ride in the car in my new car seat. I love my new family and they think I’m great.  Thanks for finding me my new forever home.

Sad News From Charlie’s Dad

“It Is with my deepest sadness that I write and let you know that Charlie crossed The Rainbow Bridge last night.  Wednesday night he had a first seizure and I rushed him to the emergency room. Medication worked and he was fine and good all day Thursday.  Last night however Charlie had another in the middle of the night, I rushed him back to the Emergency room.  The doctors worked on him for 2 hours to no avail,  they did everything they could to save him. Charlie died in my arms, he was such a good baby I had him almost 5 years.  Charlie wanted for nothing if he needed something he got it . I am heartbroken

 I attached a picture of Mr. Charlie in his own Lawn chair. He was such a big joy to me.

Sadly,

Michael”

💔IN LOVING MEMORY OF ZEN FROM HIS BELOVED PARENTS💔

“It is with a very heavy heart I have said goodbye to my little guy today.  It’s only been less than 5 years we have been together but seems much longer.  I’ll never forget when you and your little brother came to me as fosters from Destiny For Dogs, JoAnn Goodrich!  Thank you for giving me the chance to give him his final forever home. You had such a rough life before.  I’m so glad I was able to give you the love and family you deserved these past few years.  Thank you Dr. Matthew Bond for taking such good care of my boy at the end so he didn’t suffer.  I will miss you always ZEN but for now run free!   Until we meet again.”
