One of our own needs our help! Nancy is one of our volunteers who has been hit with many obstacles lately. She needs our help.
Her wonderful Beagle Stella has cancer. The prognosis is excellent, but chemo is pricey. They could sure use some help here.
Nancy has adopted four pets from our shelter–including Stella last year–and two of them have cancer. Her precious Boo Ridley just passed away this week from cancer. To top it all off, Nancy has had back surgery. She has depleted her savings for these wonderful animals, and we would like to give Stella a long and happy life with Nancy. She is being treated by Garden State Vets, and they say she has a long life ahead of her with the treatment.
PLEASE HELP US HELP NANCY SAVE HER STELLA!!!!

We know that this is a hard time for everyone. Nancy herself has taken in her mother and daughter and their pets, who have also lost everything. We love this woman who gives so selflessly of herself for the animals.

What a week! Thanks to the generosity of so many friends, the FOSCAF, rescuers and dog lovers across the county, you have saved my Comet!
Last night and this morning, Comet was very lethargic. His condition was deteriorating. He hadn’t eaten or been able to drink more than a few licks of water in six days. This morning, he underwent abdominal surgery to remove the foreign object or objects from his intestines. He had a shoelace or other elastic string which was wrapped in hair or fur lodged in his small intestine. There were a few other objects as well, but it was this string that was causing his problems. There is no damage to his intestine or bowel–good news!
I just spoke with a doctor at Garden State Veterinary Specialists moments ago and was told that he was up on all four legs soon after surgery and has been able to go outside to potty. He won’t be fed until tomorrow to give his digestive system time to recover from the surgery. He is being kept comfortable with medications and is doing very well. He will be able to come home in a couple of days.
This whole incident and the responses of people from across the country has reaffirmed my faith in humanity. Caring animal lovers who don’t know me or my dog shared our story and opened their hearts and wallets to save my boy. It’s at times like this that I realize how deep the bond is between animal lovers, animal rescuers, and everyone who has ever loved a dog or cat. You all amazed me and turned what was very nearly a tragedy into a success story. I am humbled by your generosity and very, very thankful.
From the bottom of my hear, thank you.
URGENT! Comet is in danger of dying and needs our help!
One of our dedicated volunteer’s Golden Retriever, Comet, needs emergency surgery due to having a blockage from eating a toy. He can not eat or drink water and needs surgery right away or he will have to be PTS.
He is a sweetheart of a dog and he is only 8 years old.
This volunteer dedicates so much of her time writing a newsletter for the shelter and taking photographs and she needs us to help her now.
Due to this volunteer having a serious medical condition, she can not afford the costly $4000 surgery to save her dog’s life. We are asking for 200 caring people to donate $20 each and we will be able to raise the money needed to save Comet’s life. We can do this if we come together.
We can come together for a dog and a wonderful human being in need. You can donate through the FRIENDS paypal account
This is a 501C# charitable tax deductable organization.
Let’s do this and help a friend in need and save a life.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being Comet’s angels.
