“This surgery will save her life… I need Nancy to know that she wasn’t adopted into a family who will ever give up on her, regardless of the obstacles we may face.”

Annet has been devastated by the news she received recently about her beloved dog, Nancy, who lives in Houston with her mom, Karen.  Nancy has a massive blockage in one of her intestines, and desperately needs to undergo surgery.  Being a dog rescuer, Annet hates to ask for help on her own behalf, but knows that without this surgery, Nancy’s death is imminent.  If you can, please help create an Easter miracle.

This comes from Nancy’s fundraiser page:

On Tuesday, 3.22.2016, Nancy was rushed to the emergency vet with suspicion of a blockage in her intestine. Bloodwork and X-rays were done and it was determined they were consistent with a large blockage. The vet let me know surgery alone was going to be $4000 IF everything went well – in addition to the $622 I had already paid for testing and x-rays.

I immediately spiraled into an emotional panic, knowing I didn’t have the money on hand to save my sweet girl’s life. With some reassurance of a friend, I decided to go ahead with the surgery – the vet let me know that if they discovered it was perforated, the surgery cost would quickly raise to $7,000-10,000. As of right now, we are taking it one step at a time and hoping for the best. After the surgery, she will need at least 48 of hospitalization, which are critical to her health and recovery.

My heart is shattered into a million pieces, but this surgery will literally save her life – without it – she will die. I need Nancy to know that she wasn’t adopted into a family who will ever give up on her, regardless of the obstacles we may face.

As an animal rescuer, I am entirely embarrassed to be writing this, knowing so many other dogs need help. But as a mom (dog and human), it is in my blood to not give up on my kids, but I cannot do it alone.

  1. I would like to donate but, I alway’s do it with a personal GOOD check I need an address to send it to Also she should go on GO Fund Me she would have better results
    Thank s

    1. I had a problem where my large, 11year old dog Kody, broke his back and lost movement in his back legs. The emergency vet suggested I take him to the Veterinary School at University of Washington, where it would be about half of what the only vet in our area would charge me.
      He called, made all the arrangements. The only thing is I had to drive him over there by 6AM the next morning. It was an all night drive. I got there at 6;15 am and they were ready for him. They took him in and it took a day to get him sabaillzed. The next morning he had surgery and he did well.. I had no money. The Administration worked with me to get the money. I took out a loan. Paid the bill and we went home the following week with my wonderful,sweet old boy., Look into into Veterinary Schools at The University in your area. They may be able to help you. Best wishes to you. The students are working under Veterinarians and about to graduate, and the procdure is about half what you would pay. Give it a try.

  2. I will help in whatever way I can as well – please start a “go fund me” page and provide an address as well.

    My best to you and

  3. Please send me contact information of the vet who is treating her.
    I prefer to make a payment directly to the vet.

  4. Pls provide complete vet info. I would love to help, but would like to confirm some things with the vet doing the surgery. God bless.

  5. Give your dog castor oil in an edema: buy a disposable syringe, the ones that don’t have a needle, and fill it up with castor oil, and inject it in her butt, repeat twice and wait an hour or so, your dog will go potty so watch it!
    Walmart sells the castor oil in the hispanic area or where they have all the hair shampoo and stuff. Walgreens might have it too.
    And you can also give her turmeric powder for inflamation: mix half of a teaspoon of turmeric powder with 2 tbsp of plain yogurt and give it to her, if she doesn’t like it then give it to her in the morning before she eats her food.
    This is what one of my boxers had last year and I had no idea until I gave him the castor oil edema:

  6. I’m afraid everyone ho donated may have been taken to the cleaners. Two days ago, someone named Allen posted on the fund page in broken English that they needed more money. After a donator commented asking what was up, Allen’s comment was deleted. Now, the comment and all updates have been deleted. I sent a message to the campaigner without a response. This is truly unfortunate.
