June 2014

Boss is a big, happy, sweet boy who went from a hoarding situation, to a death row county shelter dog. He has a wonderful, "hey, why worry, it's all going to be good" attitude you have to admire! We're trying to raise $1000 to treat his advanced case of Heartworm.

Precious Paloma was rescued after a man shot, then stepped on her. She can't yet use her back legs, but a specialist surgeon feels if he can cautiously remove the bullet, she has a chance. The cost of the surgery, medication, and hospitalization is $2,200. We'd love to give Precious Paloma the chance she deserves!

A man went to the back of his shed on Saturday morning for his lawnmower. What he found was an emaciated black cat lying in the corner, looking up at him with pleading eyes. He was covered in flies and had severe injuries to his lower back. The cat, Evan, allowed the man to swaddle him in a towel and bring him to the shelter, where we found out Evan had been shot, a "through and through" in the lower back. He's badly infected and his injuries are serious, but with pain medication, antibiotics, fluids, and surgery, he has a chance at a life and a home. We're trying to raise $2500 to cover his emergency care.

Thank you for any help you're able to give, and thank you for your compassion for Boss, Precious Paloma, and Evan!


Fall 2013

So many rescues in 2013 alone!

Clemson, a beautiful golden Retriever with heartworm; Valentino, a sweet cat from a hoarding situation, suffering from pneumonia; Maja, a wonderful girl with a long-term, but manageable medical condition; Thatcher, a small kitten and victim of cruelty, needing emergency care; McCoy, a young black lab left to starve in a foreclosed house; Ernestine, a blind colony kitten unable to find food or protect herself.

Through the first half of 2013, STAF was able to save over 140 dogs and cats. How quickly the outcome can change from suffering to comfort, from fear to security, from certain death to a wonderful life of love and care. All it takes is a willingness to act and the means to provide the needed help.

Our Medical Fund is the vehicle for providing this help. We’re proud that medication and veterinary care is over half of our annual budget. It’s where donation dollars go.
It’s what we do! The fund means one less cat starves because of the pain of dental disease. It saves the dog who has been tied in the back of a yard for years without care, only to end up on death row. It’s the lifeline for an injured puppy or the kitten who has experienced cruelty for the sake of cruelty. It’s help for those that have no one.

The Medical Fund makes our mission – yours and STAF’s – achievable. Bottom line, it ends suffering and pain, it saves lives, and it gives the unwanted the chance at a home, love, and care.

We hope you’ll find it possible to be part of this effort with a donation to The Medical Fund. It truly takes all of us working together to make lasting change for the animals!

Thank you so much!
