Thank You, Everyone – Fundraiser Update

WOW, on behalf of all of the volunteers here at HFE, we can’t even begin to express our gratitude to our supporters over the last month.

Leif, one of the dogs in our rescue needed a life saving surgery on his spine that totaled over $8,000. While already strapped for funds with huge outstanding vet bills, we came to you for help. Around a time where everyone is low on funds because of Christmas, you all rose to the challenge, not only to cover Leifs surgery, but also the aftercare and physical therapy he will need.

This week we were also able to hold 2 fundraisers, at I Luv Cheese and Ireland’s Pub in which a few more thousand dollars was raised (A big thank you to both venues for having us!). We wish we could thank each one of you individually for your monetary donations, your donations to the raffles, coming out and eating/drinking at the fundraisers. It has been a rough go lately and the thought of having to close the doors after just over 14 years in rescue was heartbreaking to all of us. While we are not out of the woods yet financially, and will have to continue to fundraise, we could not let our gratitude towards our supporters go unnoticed. After all, without your support and the help of volunteers and fosters, it’s almost impossible to help these animals.

Merry Christmas from HFE

Happy Holidays and Urgent Plea for Donations for Leif

We need to raise funds for Leif’s vertebrae surgery and for our rescue efforts. This surgery is needed is absolutely needed for Leif to live a pain-free life, and can only be done with additional donations to Home FurEver.

Leif’s diagnosis from an MRI shows dorsal to dorsal lateral bilaterally smoothly marginated regions of moderate to severe spinal cord compression at level T3-T6 causing dorsal and lateral to circumferential spinal cord compression. These findings are most consistent with spinal cord compression secondary to bony spinal malformation (hemivertebra).

We cannot afford this surgery due to the number vet bills incurred over this past year for veterinary care of our dogs and puppies. Home FurEver is in need of funds not only for Leif’s surgery, but to pay our outstanding vet bills and the continued emergency care for all of the dogs and puppies in our care.

Sparkle Needs Eye Surgery

See that adorable and loving Sparkle in this beautiful girls eyes? Isn’t she beautiful?

Poor Sparkle needs your help today! Our beautiful girl has a condition called entropion which is an abnormality of the eyelids in which the eyelid folds inward. This inward rolling often causes the hair on the surface of the eyelid to rub against the cornea (outer part of the eyeball) resulting in pain, ulcers in the eye or erosions. We have been told by our vets that this condition could actually cause blindness if not corrected immediately.

We have received a quote of $1600 to correct all four of her eyelids. Please consider a making a tax deductible donation in any amount to help us raise funds to have this corrected as soon as possible.

Loving Foster or Forever Home Needed


Like so many of our rescue dogs, Chevy has a very sad history: he was found in a run-down, abandoned home. When he was discovered, Chevy was starved – he was just skin and bones – and filthy. He was also heartworm positive.

Because his heartworm was so advanced, he had to spend a great deal of recovering. This did not give him a chance to learn to socialize with other dogs, and he simply has not been able to acclimate to the other dogs in his current foster home. His fosters are also caring for other dogs with serious medical issues; now that Chevy has recovered, we’ve decided that it would be best for everyone if he were moved to a foster home that has no other animals.  He would be perfectly happy with a family or a single person of his own to care for and to snuggle with for the rest of his days.
