I know shes not a golden but our group does all breed rescue and this is a very sweet girl who really needs our help....


Please cross post! Lola needs everybody's help!

Lola (Cyndi) was part of the 80s ladies/Star Wars boys that we rescued from a backyard breeder a couple of months ago (There were 12 dogs total). Lola was matted to the skin, very thin and very shy. We got her cleaned up, in an indoor foster home and worked on finding this 4 yr old Shipoo a new family that would love her as much as we do. Less than a month after Lola was adopted her new mom noticed that Lola would run into things pretty often. Off to the vet she went. It was discovered at the vet visit that Lola has advanced cataracts in both eyes. Without much needed Cataract surgery Lola will loose her sight. We have promised Christine (Lola's mom) that we would do all we could to help raise the much needed funds for this expensive surgery. Cataract surgery alone will be anywhere from $1700-$2000.00 for both eyes. This does not include meds and follow up care.
Please help CARE raise the funds to help Lola take the final step to a happy, healthy life!


You can do that one of three ways
1. Mail a donation to CARE PO Box 90060 Columbia SC 29290

2. Donate thru our chip in fundraiser

I hope your rescue collects a lot for Lola. she sure does DESERVE IT.
Since I lost my job on September 16th, my donating days are over for quite awhile, but I wanted to "Support your post."

I know what a hard time I have trying to collect money no matter how WORTHY the cause!

I just lost my job Sept. 16th after 12 years so as much as I would love to help I just can't, but I looked at the chip-in link for Lola and it says $100 of $2500 was collected, is that correct?


Would Lola's adoptive family be able to check with the vet and see if they have the Care Credit or Wells Fargo credit card where you pay no interest for a year or year and a half.That's the only way the Ken and I could afford Smooch's $3600 TPLO surgery.
