    Default Holiday Fundraiser: Help Save Gary!

    Hi – my name is Gary and I am one very, very lucky dog…I was saved from the South Los Angeles Animal Shelter just hours before I would have been put to sleep (talk about being in the right place at the right time!).

    My story is this…as I was being brought into the animal shelter as a “stray” a very nice rescue lady from Philly Pfoundation who was at the shelter pulling another dog saw me. This rescue lady is good friends with So Cal Bulldog Rescue (SCBR). My rear end was a mess – I had a prolapsed colon. That means that my colon was coming out of my body. The shelter worker turned to the Philly Pfoundation rescue lady and asked if she would take me because if not, they were going to put me to sleep that afternoon because the shelter did not have the means to fix me. This nice rescue lady immediately got on the phone to SCBR and asked if she should take me for SCBR. Thank goodness the answer was yes and I was on my way to being rescued!

    -018-gary-prolapsed-colon-jpg

    I was taken directly from the shelter to the SCBR vet but they took one look at me and said the job was too much for them to do since it was closing time and said I needed to go to an emergency clinic as it needed to be done asap. They took me to Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Irvine, California. The doctors evaluated me and said that there were several options to the surgery. The easiest and least invasive surgery would have been where they could try and shrink the membrane and just pull the prolapsed colon back inside me. If that didn’t work they would have to go into my abdomen and pull it back inside that way. Well, once I was on the operating table they could not shrink the colon enough and turns out that they had to go in through my abdomen. The good news is that the surgery was a success and I now have a beautiful behind! But, I am not quite out of the woods yet. The surgeon’s biggest fear is that of internal infection. Since they didn’t have any history on me they had no way of telling how long my colon was exposed and how much bacteria there could be. They have pumped me full of antibiotics to try and keep me infection free.

    On top of all of this they noticed that I have a severe medial luxating patella on my rear left leg. That means another expensive surgery for me in the near future.

    As it stands right now, it has cost SCBR over $3,000 to get my prolapsed colon fixed. It is going to cost another $2,000 to fix my rear left leg. No one knows my birthday for sure but everyone is convinced I’m a young guy – they think I’m about two years of age. That means I should have many good years to look forward to. My friends at SCBR would be so grateful for any donations sent their way to help with these unexpected expenses for me. No amount is too small.

    Thank you for reading my story and many thanks for whatever help is being sent on to SCBR.

    Love ya,
    GARY

    Just donated on behalf of @pdolphin27 s wife Maggie who made me an awesome Christmas gift for me and is refusing any kind of payment. Her only request is a donation to Gary's fundraiser! It's so great knowing such selfless and caring people on this forum! Thank you Phil and Maggie and God bless Gary!
