No time for a Gem. We have a medical emergency
happening NOW at
an Emergency Hospital in
7 year old "Hobbit" was found in
a box with wounds to his hind quarters and
legs. (Open wounds with live maggots crawling
in them). His core body temperature was only
93 and it should be 101.5.
Small Pawser Julie Lyne went to get him.
We now have him at the Animal Care Center of Plainfield, a 24 hour
Emergency Care Hospital in Plainfield Il. where they are using warm fluids and warming
blankets to heat him back up.
14411 S. Rt. 59
Plainfield, IL 60544
His testicles and hind quarters were infested
with maggots. They are infected and inflamed.
He is in pain.
He's trying so hard.
His blood glucose numbers
were almost zero.
Now they are up to 70.
Maximum and minimum
blood glucose levels,
should ideally be
between 100 and 250 mg/dL.
He seems to be saying "Thank You"
to Julie for saving him.
For them to be able to work on him to get
him stabilized, in ICU, he needs our help.
I can hardly stand it to come and ask you
again for help, but this little guy just
wasn't in our plan when last we typed.
This is the estimate for the next 24 hours
of care for Hobbitt for $703.15.
(The vet told me she thinks he will need
48 hours of care but her computer only lets
her give an estimate for 24 hours.)
So we are looking at about $1500.00 to try
to pull him through.

I am sending you a picture of a Bichon or
a Bichon mix. He looks from the pic to be
on the small side. He was found as a stray
and someone left him in an open crate. He
is urine stained, has severe flea DeMartini
with open wounds on his legs, tail and buttocks,
along with MAGGOTS crawling all over his
wounds and bottom. Thank you for letting
me put a hold on him and he is going to need
vetting, labs, grooming, neuter, dental,
quarantine, and God knows what else! Our
rescue pups have been needing so much lately
and costing so much ! We rarely get a rescue
that hasn't been neglected, abused, sick
or malnourished. It is so sad.. some days
I can barely stand it! Some days I ask my
self, Sara, why do you keep doing this? All
the sadness, heartbreak and anger at the
people who did this to these poor babies.
Well, I will tell you why I do, because if
I don't than who will? If we say, "oh
someone else will do it" then what happens
to these innocent souls? I have made a promise
to help them, so they can find love, trust
and a happy forever home . Yes, being a volunteer,
foster, donor is what I am, through sad,
heartbreaking and happy situations! I am
a Small Paws Volunteer and thank God everyday
that we have this organization!
Thanks you Robin for starting such an unbelievable
rescue! You not only are my friend but have
been my mentor! You take many dogs that many
I just want to say that I feel so blessed
to be a part of this great organization!
With Love Sara
I am here and will issue matching challenge
donations for this precious little dog that
looks like a cross between a Bichon and a
bunny. Our precious little Hobbitt.
All My Love, Robin
