Black Friday, cyber Monday, ….now it’s time for Giving Tuesday! Help us, help them by making a donation to Cutie’s Fund on Tuesday November 28th.
Cutie’s Fund is dedicated to raising support for the treatment of many injured or ill dogs each year. The Fund pays for medical care provided by the veterinarian in the Lucas County Canine Care & Control shelter and for emergency treatment and/or hospitalization in outside institutions. Since the fund was created in November of 2012, it has raised over $220K and helped to provide life-saving medical care to some 415 dogs!
Why the name Cutie’s Fund you may ask?……Cutie is a Chihuahua, and the name sake of the Fund, that we cared for in 2012 that came to us in the middle of the night with a puppy stuck in her birth canal. After some tests and ultimately an emergency surgery, it was determined that Cutie had two deceased puppies that had to be removed to save her life – she had been in labor sometime during the past week, a puppy got stuck, the puppies died, and now Cutie’s life was in danger. If we hadn’t acted quickly, Cutie would not be alive. The bill for only her emergency care exceeded $1400. Cutie is now thriving in a loving, lifetime home.
