Post Surgical Followup for Ophelia

Well, she had her heart surgery on Nov 3, and we are happy to report it was successful and she is on the road to recovery!

!! BIG THANK YOU!! to all of you who donated to her surgery so far. It was expensive and she will have additional costs in the coming year with follow up visits. We are happy we are able to help this sweet and wonderful girl.

Her costs are ongoing, so donations are always welcome. You can contribute by 1) the DONATE button on Facebook (we'll know it is for Ophelia ); 2) visit our website at dawgrescue.com, click on the donate link and specify "shelter medical"; and 3) send a check to DAWG at P.O. Box 1850, Gardnerville, NV 89410 and write Ophelia on the memo line. All contributions are tax deductible.

Thank you and thank you for your support of our shelter animals!

DOUGLAS ANIMAL WELFARE GROUP
WELCOMES YOU

Bettering the lives of Douglas County Animals

At Douglas Animal Welfare Group we’re raising funds and promoting initiatives to serve the people and animals who need them most. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of Douglas County animals.

 

PROGRAMS & COMMUNITY SERVICE

DAWG initiates programs and services to help the community with the care of their pets. It is DAWG’s belief that such assistance may reduce the shelter animal population with special spay and neuter programs or short term assistance. These services and programs may be long or short term at DAWG’s discretion and funds available.

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE
