1/5/23 – Jane Doe has been in and out of the emergency hospital since December 24. She was originally posted on fb by a person who saved her from a very abusive/neglectful situation. She was only 10 weeks old and Jane appears to have been starved and couldn’t hold down any food. An amazing woman saw the post and took in Jane thinking that the condition sounded like Parvo. Well, to make a long story short, it wasn’t parvo; this poor baby has been diagnosed with Megaesophagus which will eventually require surgery if the doctors can get her through her current issues of pneumonia caused from the aspiration of vomit. According to Web MD, Megaesophagus in dogs is a disorder in which the esophagus gets larger in size and consequently loses its ability to transport food. When this disorder occurs, the food accumulates in the animal’s espophagus.

Unfortunately, as an organization we have to consider all of the many stray animals in our communities who need our help. And, as we know from experience, money spent on medical needs can go fast. Consequently, we can’t help Jane Doe to the level she needs but we can at least help with a fraction of what the total costs will be for Jane’s medical care. Jane was again recently admitted to the emergency hospital for more testing and at this time her ANGEL is making arrangements with a surgical hospital for future surgery and continuing to raise money. Please pray for Jane Doe as well as her savior who has jumped into a situation she didn’t expect and really can’t afford. But she is committed to Jane — at all costs.

When you read and see all of the bad happening in this world, you once again regain hope when you come across a Paige Burgess who is giving it all for a defenseless, abused animal. – diana.

1/4/22 – Meep is a one-eyed sweet boy who started living on on a very caring person’s porch during the severe weather of a couple of weeks ago. The homeowner contacted several rescues without any success and once the storm hit she didn’t have the heart to leave him outside so she brought him into her home and has been keeping him separated from her other cat until he could be tested and examined. Meep’s rescuer planned on taking him into All About Animals but was concerned there might be a longer term dental issue (you can see his snaggletooth protruding from his lower jaw) or other care that may not be in her budget at this time. He is an absolute sweetheart and as long as his testing comes back ok and introductions with her other cat go well she will be willing to give him a furever home.

We offered to cover Meep’s All About Animals visit as well as any dental issues needed. And, yesterday, Meep was tested and found negative for FIV and FelV, he has already been neutered and his rescuer paid for a microchip. The doctor examined his mouth and found Meep’s mouth and teeth to be healthy. He did indicate that because the ‘snaggletooth’ is so deep into Meep’s jaw, he would not recommend surgery. – diana.
