Dachtoberfest and Well Wishes for a Member
Friday, October 2, 2009 9:23 AM
Hope you are all enjoying the beginning of fall and hope to see you all next week at Dachtoberfest! **Don't forget that the location has changed and we are now meeting at Camp Bow Wow in Tonawanda- NOT downtown at WJ Morrissey pub**
As a reminder, please bring snacks and treats to share with the group! Also, if you were able to get any raffle items, please contact me ASAP so I can pick them up from you early, or plan on bringing them with you to the event. They will be collected upon your entry.
Also, one of our members is going through a very tough time with her pet. Virginia T. Kessler-Bunt was told that her vet would not do the neccassary emergency surgery to remove an object from her dog T'Dah's intestine unless she paid half the quoted $1550 bill before the surgery and the other half before she could pick her up after the surgery.
The SPCA gave her the name of a vet who has an animal sanctuary in Little Falls, south of Springville. Virginia told him how bad off her dog was and he had her bring T'Dah down there on Tuesday night for the emergency surgery. He said that she wouldn't have survived that night.
He also said "when and if" she gets $350, to send it to him for his sanctuary. T'Dah is not out of the woods yet. So, if any club members who like to donate a dollar or two to Dr. O'Leary, the Samaritan's sanctuary, his web site is: www.almosthomeanimalsanctuaryinc.com
Also, if you could please send all of your positive thoughts Virginia's way - that would be great.
See you next week!
