Stella is doing great and putting on weight. She is up to 42lb. He cancerous tumors have been removed and we are hopeful they will not return. We are starting treatment for heartworm and are going to start looking for a Forever Home for her. She lives with other dogs and cats and loves people. She is low key and likes to nap but loves to go for walks too. If you are looking for a true survivor that will love you to the moon and back then fill out an application to meet Stella.
Stella is fighting for her life. We rescued this girl this weekend also. The more tests, x-rays and exams we ran the more we found wrong with her. Despite the obvious emaciation issues, she has mammary tumors that need to be removed. Her intestines are an issue and have sunk down into a hernia she also has. She has chicken or some type of small bones in her stomach, heartworms, she is anemic and needs to have some teeth removed that are cracked. The world has not been good to this amazing dog but despite all of this she is a happy and peppy girl and we feel since she is fighting in good spirits we need to do the same for her. We are starting her donation need at $2000, until we get further into treating everything she has. We are hoping to do the surgeries on her soon and are praying she survives. We desperately need the donations for her and other medical needs we have incurred this month alone. You can donate several ways. We have a YouCaring link, our website has a donation tab, you can visit our adoption centers and drop off a check or you can attend a Casino Entertainment fundraiser on April.
Alsip To The Rescue (ATTR) strives as a rescue to make sure that when our adopters take home their new rescue they feel they have the support and access to all resources which ATTR can provide. If you want to learn how you can set your new rescue up to succeed and blend in with your family come to our Meet The Trainer sessions each weekend. We will give you tips on what to do when you first bring home a new rescue. Saturday at Noon in St John and Sunday at Noon in Frankfort are free Meet The Trainer sessions with more free sessions to be added during the week soon. Fill out an application in the Get Involved section to meet our rescues. www.alsiptotherescue.org
