New Matching Challenges for Dutch’s Hit By Car Surgery. New Information From Surgeon. We Are About 3/4 Of The Way There. Boris Berger Needs Prayer.


February 24, 2020 Monday Afternoon 

Quote of the Day: Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”

~ Barry Finlay~

Together we pieced together what likely happened.
Since the shelter believes that it was the owner who brought him in, we think the owner probably did see him hit by a car, yet thought he would be ok.
After a week, he wasn’t ok, and they brought him to the shelter, saying that they saw him being hit by a car.
If this is the case, being hit by the car may be the best thing that ever happened to him. He’s with us now and he will never suffer like this again.
“Good Morning Robin: Poor little guy. Yes we do need to move quickly.
I will make a challenge in the amount of $500.00. Hope we can all come together and get the funds needed today.
As always sent with love,
“Hi Robin,
I will issue a matching challenge of $100 for Dutch.
Thanks for your hard work and determination to help the babies.
Judy DeAngelis”

We are about 3/4 of the way there. Help is still needed for little mistreated, starved then hit by a car, Bichon named Dutch.

They said this is a stoic dog. He KNOWS he is now loved. All My Love, Robin 

We were contacted by the Harris County shelter in Houston, Texas, about a Bichon who was seen being hit by a car, and was brought into the shelter. (The shelter workers believe it may have been the owner who couldn’t afford medical treatment, that brought him in.)
As you can see, he is not feeling one bit good.
Since he has no neurological deficits, surgery should restore him back to health, as it did for little Elf and Linus.
Elf is acting like nothing ever happened, after being thrown out of a moving car, and Linus is getting ready to begin physical therapy. He too, is doing so very well.
Both of them are expected to make full recoveries!
If we can raise these funds, Dutch will too,
X-rays show that he has a broken leg, and his hip came out of it’s socket.
They tried to put him under anesthesia and manually try to get it into place, but they couldn’t get it back in the socket.
He also may have a chipped vertebrae which is lower in his back. All of this is very painful and they are keeping him sedated until they can do surgery, today, if we can raise the funds. They are calling around ten to get out answer.
The surgery is going to be around $4,000.00. Then we get a 20% rescue discount off of these charges.
So, in order to save this little guy, we need to raise $5,000.00. They want a deposit of $3000.00 NOW.
We need help.
Dutch managed to make his way to our door. That in itself is a miracle.
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, he walks into mine. Play it, Sam. Play As Time Goes By.”
I believe that we are supposed to save him or he wouldn’t be in our arms.
I am here and will issue all matching donation challenges. But this is urgent and we are in a hurry. 

All My Love, Robin

Humphrey Sisco

Dec 26, 1993~ Aug 30, 2006 Pet Loss Link

When I first saw this beautiful picture of Cheri Sisco’s “Humphrey”, I thought it was truly the epitome of what we do, and why we do it. I wanted to use this black and white picture of Humphrey, taken only days before his death due to congestive heart failure, to let those who may be new to Small Paws, know what we do and why we do it. Without Small Paws, Humphrey would have never known love. He would have died in a kill shelter, sick and alone. Because of Small Paws, and Cheri Sisco, he lived, he loved, and he smiled.
