Dear Small Pawsers,

As you know, we have a little one who has been hit by a car. 

This is 3 year old, 11 pound “Marley” who was hit by a car.

He needs pelvic surgery to be able to stand and to walk.

So far we have raised $438.00. His surgery will be $4000.00. See below for details and x-rays.

We have the following matching donation challenges.

So we are just barely at 10% of raising what is needed for surgery tomorrow morning.
That price does include a rescue discount.
I am here and will issue all matching donation challenges.
We have a long way to go and a short time to get there. All My Love, Robin

Gem Of The Day: No time for a Gem. We Have A Hit By Car Medical Emergency. 

Dear Small Pawsers,

This past weekend, with the help of our Texas Team Leader, Michelle Morgan, we rescued two dog’s from two Texas shelters.

First, meet this approximately 8 year old male Bichon, whom we’ve named “Panache”.

flamboyant confidence of style or manner.
“he entertained Palm Springs society with great panache

Panache was abandoned in the parking lot, at the Austin, Texas shelter.

He was on stray hold for three days before we could finally have him.

Because our vet in the area, Leander Vet Clinic ,was already full until Tuesday morning, Panache is being boarded at a boarding kennel until then. His vetting will then be around $1700.00.

Next, meet 3 year old, 11 pound, “Marley”. I think he might be a Cocker-Bichon mix. Marley was brought into the Dallas shelter, after having been hit by a car. He was in pain in this picture taken at the shelter.

He is now at the Veterinary Medical Center of Athens, in Athens, TX. 

As you can see, Marley can’t bear any weight on his back right leg.

This is the culprit. See where it doesn’t meet? He needs a


He will need a plate and screws.

They are giving him meds to relieve his pain.

He is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday morning. But we have to be able to pay for it, in advance.

They will neuter him at that time, too. (He was probably out “looking for love in all the wrong places” because he wasn’t neutered, when he was hit by the car.)

The cost for this surgery will be around $4000.00.

Altogether, we need to raise $5,700.00 for Panache and Marley.

I know there isn’t much time.

I’m here and will issue all matching donation challenges.
