Fundraising For Charlie Bear
that is okay cause your mom and dad love you and want you to get well, Imagine
having seizures 1 or 2 every week to ten days and your mom and dad finally take
you to the doctor and get medicine to make you better, but it makes you sleepy
all the time so they only give you one dose, and then when you continue to have
seizures that it creeps them out so much they stick you in the laundry room so
they don’t have to see it and keep you there 20 hours a day.
Well we don’t have to imagine it, it is what happened to Charlie, a resident
at Basset Rescue of Puget Sound, the previous owners didn’t even tell the rescue
about the seizures except as an afterthought as they were saying goodbye they
said they didn’t have time for him was the reason they were throwing him away.
As soon as Charlie got into rescue (two days) he had a series of seizure
activity that was so violent it flipped all his organs, he bloated and
torsioned. Not to let this poor boy down the rescue spend all its reserve funds
on emergency surgery his stomach was tacked but his spleen was damaged and had
to be removed. Charlie recovered and never stopped wagging his tail. But the
medicine is not controlling Charlies symptoms and he continues to have seizures
every week or two sometimes 3 or 4 in a row. The Neurology Department in the
Vet school at Washington State Universityon the other side of our state have
agreed to do a full day complete neurological consult including, MRI, CT SCAN
and a full neurology work up, blood work and a second consult when they are done
for $1700.00. Anyone who knows how expensive these tests can be knows we have
to take advantage of that offer and have to find the money to help Charlie.
Could you skip a latte or a lunch and donate to help this poor boy, could you
show him the love and compassion his own family couldn’t. Charlies foster
family will cover all the travel expenses will stay over night there to make
sure he is okay. Charlie deserves this chance he is only 6 years old. Basset
Rescue of Puget Sound is a 501C so your donation would be tax deductable.
