George & Earl are in need of dental work, costing
approx $300 per dog. Both are 9 year old brothers
and have been together all their lives. They lost their
family a while back when their owner passed away.
Family could not keep them so they came to us. They
are very sweet boys who deserve a chance to live
healthy and pain free!
Lulu is an absolute doll but in addition to finding
herself in a shelter in Alabama, her luck again went the
wrong way when she tested high positive for
heartworms. She is such a tiny girl who for her 8 years
of life doesn't seem to have had many breaks but yet
she is still so sweet and loving. DDRT is trying to raise
$800 to help fund her treatment.
As of Jan 26, DDRT has raised $410 of the $800 for Lulu
and they are in need of $600 to fund George & Earl's dental work.
Would $1000 to cover all of these expenses be too high of a goal to reach?
Let's See What We Can Do!
