I am sure your surgery patients are on top of the list ... but, at this point, I feel you, Edie, and other AMAR earth angels, know better than me, what/who might take priority.

Sue, I would love to foster. However, like others here on SM, I cannot foster because of Snowball's health issues. Believe me, I don't know how many times, with Sophie alone, I would have loved to not only foster her ... but, I would have loved to adopt her. (I wish Paula and Lorin could adopt her). I cannot help but feel that even Snowball would love her. But, in reality, I am not in a position to foster ... because my focus needs to be solely on taking care of Snowball, who is my heart.

Often, I feel as though whatever I contribute, is never going to be enough. I think I just read recently, that abandoned dogs are now at an all time high. I swear, that if I ever won one of those multi-million dollar lotteries ... my heart would be not in only helping rescues ... but, working on ways to help prevent so many dogs from being abandoned in the first place.

In the meantime, I try and donate as much as I can to AMAR. I am always in awe of all the work done through AMAR. Of course, that includes you, too, Sue.

But, my heart is also in helping local rescues. One of my favorite rescues locally is for ... *Hope For All Creatures* Snowball's groomer, Betsy Hobbs Monroe, is the founder of this rescue. I see her work endless hours ... with lovingly rescuing so many innocent and abandoned animals. Krisi Erwin, Snowball's vet ... volunteers many, many hours, helping Betsy.

And, then there are human charities that I choose to support. We need healthy human beings, who can help foster and rescue abandoned animals ... animals who are often recuperating from emotional and physical health issues, just like humans. I see it as the circle of love ... us caring for humans ... who care for animals ... animals, who then, unconditionally, care for us, with love.

Sue, thank you, once again, for all you do. You are amazing. You are an Earth Angel.

Oh ... and, I still think Tyler would accept Sophie full-time. If you have time, please share some of Sophie's videos here. Tyler and Sophie look so sweet together ... I am not just saying that.

I love you, girlfriend.

Sam is such a good boy and just needs someone to value his loyalty and gentlemen like personality. He's just an independent fellow who loves a lap and truly deserves someone to just love him back. That ability to be able to trust someone will help him to learn the rest. These babies have never known love before. Can you imagine what that must have been like? Praying for them and yes, we will do all that we can to help them find their forever home. It means the world to us.

Btw, I have offered before but wanted to mention it again, I am interested in volunteering to help AMAR with online posts, FB posts, Petfinder, CL, updating pictures, emails, call backs etc. Anything virtual services/outreach related is very much my gift that I can bring to the table. Just let me know where there's a need and I will help. Maybe more help with these types of "marketing" will help to generate more much needed revenue also.

I called the local Greyhound rescue and asked if they would do a home visit and they did and then called the rescue in TX. Once completed we flew out to get her. I hope they get the loving home they deserve.

Like Marie mentioned there are so many organizations in need of help! It can become overwhelming at times. So thankful for people like you that help in many ways! Many blessings your way!

Just wanted to give everyone an update I wrote on Doodles today.
Doodles underwent PDA surgery at 1pm ET today. Thankfully she is OUT OF SURGERY, but is in GUARDED CONDITION. When the surgeon tied off the blood vessel, the heart rate dropped precipitously, but they were able to normalize it. Doodles will be watched throughout the night and will be in our care for 3-4 months before being adoptable, as per her surgeon's suggestion. Please keep her in your thoughts.
And we have not met our goal yet, so please donate if you haven't already and SHARE this campaign to help cover the cost of this lifesaving surgery. Doodles thanks you from the bottom of her repaired heart.

Just made a donation to AMAR for Doodles. Sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts that she continue to do well and heal quickly. Such a beautiful puppy. Sue, thank you for all you and all the others involved in rescue do to help these innocent babies.

Pat and Lynne - thank you so much for your donations. Doodles loves how his aunties (and uncle) have helped save her life. I have a new update:

NEW DOODLES UPDATE: We're very excited to update everyone about Doodles' progress. She really turned a corner the day after her surgery and she is now home with her foster mom! She's eating well, was sleeping quite a bit after the surgery but is starting to get some of her spunk back and she's as sweet as ever preferring her foster mom's lap to anywhere in the house. Peggy is such a perfect mom to her. As always the hardest part of surgical recovery for a puppy is not letting them act like a puppy! Her incision looks good and she goes back for follow up on August 14th. We know Doodles has a lot of fans out there and love being able to spread good news about her.
And we have some more good news. We've reached 50% of our goal on Giving Grid today!! We've also gotten in some generous additional donations outside of Giving Grid from people who prefer paying by check and that doesn't show up in the Giving Grid total. So we're closer to our goal than it looks here and with some more donations we think we'll make it. Your outpouring of love and support make our choice to take on costly procedures so much easier. Saving a life is one thing; affording the medical care to do so is another. You've been there for us for both. Thank you! https://www.givinggrid.com/lfuegy/
