As of 12pm on 9/26, we hit the $2,500 mark and were matched dollar for dollar up to $2,500!! As a result, we have raised $5,000 for life saving medical care! You can still donate if you’d like as all money will continue to go towards the rest of the month’s medical care.
Dorchester Paws has had an extraordinarily busy September. With over 300 intakes this month so far, we are currently operating at a deficit. We are drowning in orphaned bottle babies and have seen an influx of cruel and hard to swallow cases. As an open admission shelter, we see the worst of the worst, and they don’t stop.
Wednesday we took in four separate medical cases. It started with a phone call from the emergency vet informing us about a kitten that was hit by a car and was sadly too far gone to save. The day just continued from there, when a good Samaritan picked up a dog that had an embedded collar. When he arrived to the shelter he began yelling for staff members to help him, stating the dog was in really bad shape. This sweet boxer mix had a deep and infected neck laceration. Shortly after, another stray was brought in with multiple gunshot wounds. Not long after, a cat was found in a ditch and our staff raced to give her fluids as she was presenting with dehydration and neurological issues.
Our emergency medical fund is running extremely low! For this reason, donors like Major Tony L. Phinney, from Dorchester County Sheriff’s office, and his spouse Leslie, & Hoof and Paw have come together to match donations made up to $2,500 to help us care for the medical cases we recently admitted.
This dollar for dollar match will last from 9/24-9/26! Please donate to help us be a voice for the voiceless and provide life saving medical care for the ones that have no where else to turn to. This match provides us the opportunity to raise $5,000 to help pay for urgent surgeries and continued care for the animals mentioned above, and for the ones to come.
Help us help them!
