This winter the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network was overwhelmed after rescuing more dogs than normal during the season (Penelope wasn't the only one left in the snow), including six puppies pulled from "a damp, cramped, feces-covered cellar." Bryn (pictured) is a 4-month-old pup that they rescued, but she's now on life support with double pneumonia, racking up more unexpected expenses for the shelter. They write:
Now in the trusted hands of the Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group of Brooklyn, NY, Bryn's bill is expected to come to close to $4,000. Vaccination, spay and neuter for the remaining dogs will add another $1,000. BAFN will always be confronted with tough situations that hit us out of the blue, but we just couldn't turn our backs on this little guy. Could you?
If you can help donate and save this, and other dog's lives, do so here... and once she's all better, maybe you can take her home!
