Wally is is undergoing heartworm treatment, is under chiropractic care and is being nursed to health, trying to recover from neurological damage due to neglect by his owner that dumped him at the shelter. This boy is making progress, but funds are needed to get him all the care he so desperately needs to get well.

Check out Wally's blog:

Sweet Reba was rescued from being euthanized by a
compassionate couple, who tended and cared for her
until she could be taken in by Illinois Birddog Rescue.

Sadly, it was discovered that Reba has mammary
cancer and she was slated for radical cancer surgery,
that was also supposed to include her spay. Surgery
was extremely rough and the spay was actually
postponed as the operation took so long to take care
of the cancer removal. Reba is now waiting to heal up
to then undergo her second surgery to get spayed.

Reba's vetting costs have been high and we are
hoping to cover her surgery cost with this wonderful
raffle. Won't you buy some tickets to help this little girl?

She's the sweetest little Southern Belle you could
imagine. Read more about Reba on her blog:
