CHELSEA NEEDS YOUR HELP
A few weeks ago on Facebook, we introduced you to 'The Teddy Bear Sisters', the gorgeous Cavalier x Poodle litter mates Lola and Chelsea, who were surrendered by their loving elderly owners as they could no longer care for them.
Both girls have had extensive vet work to date - Lola needed a dental, ears flushed due to infection, tumours removed, blood tests, grooming due to extensive matting and a specialised low-fat diet etc
All up we have already spent well over $1000 on the gorgeous girls, and honestly, as crazy as this sounds, we wouldn't have it any other way.
When we agreed to help them we knew it would be a ridiculously costly mission, but meeting these two girls is like falling in love, once you cuddle them there is no turning back.....how could we say no?
Yesterday Chelsea was at the eye specialist to see if we could do something to prevent her from going blind, which is a common side effect of diabetes (as if diabetes alone isn't bad enough!)
Luckily, after a very thorough examination, Chelsea was given the all-clear and is a great candidate for cataract surgery!
While we are over the moon that we can restore vision for this gorgeous teddy bear, given that she has already lost the only family and home she has ever known, we don't want her losing her vision as well, it comes at a huge cost (huge!!!)
Chelsea needs further blood tests and potentially new medication, she needs to see a diabetic specialist as well, and on top of today's $300 vet bill, her sight-saving surgery is going to be in excess of $5000!
We never ever put a price on the health and life of an animal. If they need our help we don't stop until everything possible is achieved, even if just the surgery alone is $5000!
We know it's close to the End Of Financial Year, and people have probably already donated to other worthy causes, but we can't sit by and not help animals in need due to the fact all our resources are already being pushed to the limit trying to regain the health of these two gorgeous girls.
If you have a few dollars to spare we would be so grateful for any assistance so we can keep saving lives while saving the health and vision of these two girls! We know that some people might ask us why we are raising so much money for only two dogs, well, the fact of the matter is, to us those two dogs mean everything. Every life is important, and we made a promise to these sisters that we would make sure they lived their best life possible!
Any donation over $2 is tax-deductible and we can provide tax receipts upon request in time for EOFY.
