When we as an organization reach out for donations for a particular dog we have to weigh out a lot of options along with the prognosis for that dog. Sammie has far exceeded those guidelines; her age 3 ½ yrs, she has a loving foster who will care for her, she responds well to treatment, her diagnostic tests are normal, organs functioning normal. With this surgery Sammie would be able to stay in remission and to continue to live a happy normal live. To ensure the best possible result for the removal of the isolated mass cell tumor her surgery has been scheduled for February 15, 2012.
Sammie is a very sweet brindle Pit mix who was found abandoned at Rouge park in Detroit about almost 2 years ago by our Director in the midst of one of the harshest Winter snow storms Detroit had seen in a very long time. She was VERY thin and VERY pregnant, but we got her a good foster home, some healthy food, medical care, and lots of love, and she soon delivered 8 healthy pups who have all since been adopted.
Sammie has remained with her foster mom while we worked to find her a ‘forever’ home. In that time, she has become quite a happy, loving, playful dog who has made friends with all the other foster dogs living in the house, and has developed into quite a cuddler who loves nothing better than curling up next to Mom on the couch or the bed. She loves to chase balls, and chase the other dogs around the big yard and her tail never stops wagging!
Unfortunately, Sammie has recently been diagnosed with cancer and she needs immediate surgery (February 15, 2012) to have a isolated malignant tumor removed. Sammie’s foster Mom is paying for as much of her treatment as she can afford, unfortunately, her resources are limited. And because of the large number of rescued dogs currently in our care, we at Make A Difference Rescue are also currently without financial means to get Sammie the surgery she quickly needs to prevent the cancer from spreading. Therefore, we’re turning to you, our wonderful readers, in the hope that you will find it in your hearts to donate toward Sammie’s treatment. Whatever you can afford will help, be it $5, $50, or $500 and we will happily accept your gift on Sammie’s behalf (and it’s tax deductible since we’re a non-profit so we will be happy to provide a receipt for your tax records). Remember small change can Make A Big Difference.
