If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Raven was a sweet 1 year old girl who suddenly became paralyzed in her hind legs recently. Lots of tests were done, which we all know amounts to lots of bills. Sadly it seemed that Raven's symptoms started getting worse and started to affect her front legs as well....the vets thought maybe it was some sort of neurological problem. The tough decision was made to have Raven euthanized, which was heartbreaking. The rescue lady, Dawn (who runs the rescue by herself) now has $6,000 to pay to the hospital for Raven's care and tests. She needs help. No amount donated is too small and is great appreciated. Please share this around if you can.Thank you so much!
Dawn's Rescue is Angels On Paws Animal Rescue

Oh, I thought a lot about Raven yesterday. She was such a pretty girl. I bet it broke Dawn's heart to have to euthanize her. sigh But, she is in a better place. Poor girl. She had such a short life but her life touched so many people.
After reading about her I wondered if they ever determined what was wrong with her?
Her symptoms reminded me of a kitty I adopted 2 years ago from Michigan.
Kyle started having problems walking after being brought to a shelter in Michigan after being discovered along the side of the road with his siblings. They were baking in the summer sun.
Kyle was flown to Kansas to live with us and then lost the use of his front legs and became incontinent. Then, less than a month later he developed breathing problems and passed away.
From the beginning my vet felt he had globoid cell dystrophy. I miss that little guy so much.
I ended up adopting his brother and sister Kyler and Skyler and had them transported to Kansas too.
They were all at a wonderful shelter called Bellwether in Freemont Michigan
I hope everyone can give something to help Raven's rescuer out. She did the right thing and tried to help out this very needy little girl. /Jean
PS: Christine or Carol I wonder if we should link this page to the rescue page where she was initially featured?
