Lulu wants to wish everyone a Happy Easter and hopes that the Easter Bunny is good to all !!!

Things are still progressing, eating well, no regurgitation, breathing is so much easier for her...especially allows her to play with the other dogs and walk a bit longer distances :)

We will be taking her in to weigh her Saturday and I am hoping to post a good, solid weight gain so please check back !

Thank you ALL for EVERYTHING !!!! (can't say that enough)


Happy Easter :)

This is Lulu, she is truly the sweetest German Shepherd. She was abandoned at Spoiled Rotten Doggie Daycare  in Danvers, after being left behind there for over a month. She's had a hard life up to this point, spending most of her time outside, but deserves a second chance at life. Danvers Animal Hospital who has seen her in the past has shared that she has a medical condition (esophageal diverticulitis) which requires immediate corrective surgery to allow her to eat and not regurgitate her food. If she doesn't have the surgery, the condition will most likely escalate into a secondary condition (infection in her lungs from aspirating food when vomiting) that could develop, costing her her life. I am going to have her evaluated at Angel Memorial this week for immediate surgery to correct this problem which may cost between $5000 to $8000. depending on severity. Timing is critical. No donation is too small or will go unnoticed...please help me, help Lulu... the Staff at Spoiled Rotten is committed with me to helping her get healthy and get a second chance at life. We are her guardian angels, as she has not had an advocate until this point...  every soul deserves a chance. Thanks for lending whatever support you can.

I have been praying for Lulu. I have a very good feeling that she is going to do okay. I think she is so thankful for you Kimberly and is trying very hard to get better so she can continue to get your love and care, as this is probably the first time in her life she has received it. Thank you for taking such good care of Lulu.

I am also trying to raise money for my dog's surgery. She was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on her leg. Congrats on raising enough money for Lili.

I too was curious if a forever home has been found. I had 2 German Shepherds a female who lived to 17 and left me just over 2 years ago. I also had a male I adopted from a kill shelter and was blessed to have for 5 years. He passed 3 months after my Girl Teddy did. He had cancer we were dealing with. He was abandoned in an apartment by a 21 year old and the landlord found him 2 weeks later near death in the apartment. They had used him to train pit bull fighing dogs with...filed his teeth ,missing part or his ears and nose.He was a good boy.I know how expensive medical bills are as the last 2 years of my dogs life I spend 18 grand on needed medical events before they had to leave me for a better place. I'd offer a forever home once Lulu heals up and is ready just let me know...Best wishes.Thank you to all the donors and to Kim for being so loving and caring.

I am so so so happy to see that Lulu is going to get the help she needs. My dog has been in my life for almost 17 years and he is my everything. He is so important to me and the best thing my parents ever did was adopting him. I hope Lulu finds unconditional love like this.

So happy that you reached your goal to help this beautiful baby. I adopted a Boxer about 3 years ago that was neglected and also left at a doggie day care. The owner would drop him off at 7am and pick him up at 7pm then on the weekends drop him off at 7am Friday and not pick him up until Monday night at 7pm. Why have an animal if you are just going to leave it? They found he was also chaining the dog to a spare bedroom wall when he was home with it because the dog was "bugging him" all night. Some just never get it. Good luck Lulu. All the love and prayers for you and all the other animals in the world facing this type of situation. xoxo
