ALFIE STILL NEEDS HELP WITH HIS VET BILLS

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:58 pm by Administrator

As of December 10, 2006, Alfie is still just over $1500 short of what he needs to pay off his vet bills.  We have him in our forever foster program now since his prostate cancer makes him unadoptable.  We would like to be able to keep him in this program until the inevitable, but desperately need funds for this.

Alfie’s holiday update

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:28 pm by AlfieTurner

Alfie is doing well on his medication. He still has to wear a diaper, but he seems to be feeling better and has a good appetite. Of course, when he felt a lot worse, we had to make hamburgers for his meals to get him to eat, and he still wants them. So, since he is so special and sweet, his foster mom continue to make him hamburger patties. His favorite thing is to go outside and role around in the yard scratching his back. Sometimes he comes to the door covered in grass, but so “happy”.  He’s a sweet little guy and continues to require daily medication. We hope to find maybe 4-5 people who would be willing to commit to sponsoring him by donating just $10.00 each monthly to cover the cost of his medication. We know his is a hospice situation, but we want him to feel as good as he can during the time he has remaining. Will you consider helping him?

Alfie is feeling so good now that he is on the new cancer meds, so he’s hard to photograph.  Here he is newly groomed and another snoozing in his crate.  What a cutie.  Please read his story below.  Be sure to click on all the “comments” links to see the chronicle and comments of his foster mom.

If this little guy’s story – abandoned at 12 years of age - and now with cancer – moves you, please consider contributing to his medical fund.  We need to be able to pay his current bills and get prepared for what it will take to keep him happy until the inevitable.  If you are able to contribute via Paypal, CLICK HERE.  Or, if you would rather send Alfie a check, GO HERE.

Alfie has prostate cancer

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:14 am by Administrator

Sadly, we received the test results for Alfie – he has prostate cancer and the long term prognosis is not good.  He’s already incurred astronomically-high vet bills and now there is nothing we can do other than be supportive.  However, he’s on a medication that is helping him for now to feel a whole lot better. He’s eating better, actually playing some, and is more active than he has been for a long time. In addition, he’s playing this for all it’s worth since he now gets daily hamburger patties instead of dog food. He will stay with his foster mom who will will keep working with the vet to help make sure the quality of his life is good for as long as possible. We’ll keep you updated on this little guy’s progress and thanks to all of you for donating so we can help Alfie feel as good as possible for the remainder of his life

To date, this sweet little boy has only had $350 contributed toward his $2200 veterinary bills.  We need to be able to support him, but, as you know, are totally dependent on the public donations to keep his medical treatment going.  Please consider helping Alfie.

Update Saturday 12:15 PM – thanks Stephanie F., Pam Glass, Lori U. and Cat M. (and Chachacha and Chugger) for your donations to little ALFIE.  He thinks he just hit the lottery.  Only $1530 to go.  Stay tuned on this page to watch the progress for this adorable boy.  Foster mom, Karen, took new pictures today, so hopefully we’ll have some new photos of this adorable pup within the next day or so.

This sweet little boy sure needs help with his medical expenses so we’re trying to raise funds for him.This great little guy never complains, although we know he’s not feeling good. He sure needs help with his medical expenses and we’re trying to raise funds for him so he can get well and find that “forever” family who will love him and care for him.  Read his history at the “History” link to the right.
