3/6/15 – This very sweet girl needs our help; the only break she’s had was to be rescued by the right person. She needs a foster/adopter and we could use financial help so that we can follow through with her medical bills. If you can help with providing her a home whether permanently or while she goes through treatment, contact Gina at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to make a donation to help with medical bills, donations can be made through paypal on this page or through our website www.4paws1heart.org.Here is Ginger’s very sad story.
Ginger was found wandering the streets during the below zero temperatures. She was severely malnourished and had a leg wound. The rescuer’s friend, Gina, (not our Gina) contacted us to get help. Ginger was taken to one of the caring veterinarians who work with us and it was determined that the wound on her leg was infected and was the result of a gun shot. Fortunately, the doctor was able to get most of the metal out but when he tested her for heart worm, it turned out to be positive. When I talked with the doctor, he told me how very sweet she is and it just broke my heart to think we couldn’t help her. So, one way or the other the rescuers and 4 Paws 1 Heart have decided to do whatever we can to get her healthy and find her a foster home — but even better a loving, forever home. Ginger is not spayed and won’t be able to have that surgery until she goes through heart worm treatment. She can’t start her treatment until she gains some weight. Ginger is crate trained, good with cats and good with kids. Because she is in heat she has not been allowed to be around the male dogs of the rescuers so they are not sure how she is with dogs. She is very loving and never barks. Her current guardians said she is just the best dog but because they already have their dog limit they can’t foster much longer. Please share Ginger’s story. We’ll keep everyone updated. ~ diana
