Whew, it's Hot!

Wow - 108 degress predicted for Saturday. In spite of the sweat, we'll be doing cat adoptions on Saturday, June 30 at the Loganville Petsmart. Melanie and the dogs will be going to a neighborhood block party at Park Place subdivision in Loganville on Saturday from 3 to 7 pm. She'll have a tent, a pool of water and other things for cooling down, but we'll watch how the dogs hold up and may have to make an early exit if the heat is too much. I know it's already too much for me!

Can you help Daisy?

This is Daisy, a cattledog rescued on Monday from the Gwinnett shelter. She's an older girl of about 8. Daisy is showing her age a bit - missing teeth, vision problems, but it none of that matters to her. She is overjoyed to be with people. We took her because such a sweetheart doesn't deserve to die in the shelter.

But Daisy had some surprises. The vet discovered a life-threatening pyometra infection that required immediate surgery. While under anesthesia, Daisy was found to have severe dental disease - stage 4. She has ulcers in the roof of her mouth from the dental infection and most of her back teeth need to be removed.

Daisy's vet bill is $1,000. Plenty of people question the wisdom of spending that kind of money on an older dog, but those are people who haven't met her. The vet staff is in love with her and she's proven to be one tough girl.

This is an unexpected financial hit for us and we'd welcome donations for her. Our website has a Paypal donation button, or you can contact Monroe Vet directly at  (770) 267-3690.

Thanks for caring!
