Bonnie needs our love and support to help her heal after years of neglect!!!  She needs EMERGENCY VETERINARY CARE!!!

Bonnie was obtained by a "dog breeder" who traded a pair of her "dogs" for a pair of New Guinea Singing dogs.  She thought she could make a lot of money breeding and selling these rare dogs... but the male was ill and they never had a litter. The male died and the lady listed the female on Craig's List!!!!

She was unwanted, unloved, and not cared for! She was useless because she couldn’t be used as a puppy mill for this lady!! Look at her nails!!! This “breeder” wanted to exploit the fact that she was rare to sell her puppies for a lot of $$- but once she couldn’t have puppies, she figured she would try to sell an 8 year old female for $500!!! Of course, she said she would only take CASH!!!  But we convinced her to take receipt through Paypal, because we are a non-profit (501c3) and needed the paper trail!!!   We required a Health Certificate and requested confirmation of her health and that she was up to date on all of her shots/vaccinations!!  She confirmed she had no medical history and was up to date!!!  WELL!!!!!!

As part of our effort in the conservation of New Guinea Singing dogs and their rescue, we raised the money to purchase her from this lady and found placement in a sanctuary with another rescue Singer.

When we went to pick her up, we discovered that she was so sick that she could barely walk.  She just laid on the ground and wanted to be picked up!!

She likely has a nail bed infection from years of neglect!!

She has scars on her leg

She also has a horrible infection in her mouth, with many missing teeth- from years of poor veterinary care and even worse food!!!

The infection will definitely require she have teeth extracted, but possibly part of her bone and we don't even know if the infection has spread to other parts of her body or bone!!

32247716_1534697834145577_r.jpegWe have to take her immediately to a vet!!!  One of our team members is currently driving her through horrible storms to get her to the vet as quickly as possible.  He estimates that her veterinary care will cost a minimum of $3000 to start, plus we need to find a place for boarding and care until she is able to go to her new sanctuary!!  

BONNIE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!

Bonnie did amazing throughout her surgery. The teeth were a lot worse than expected and the cleaning and repair took well over a couple hours. They managed to save her canines and extract 4 teeth!! She had infection in her sinus cavity and luckily she did not require any debridement!!! See a few before and afters. I am going to do final financials to see where we are with the Gofundme and if we need additional funds for this girl!!!
Thank you everyone!!!

Surgery day for Bonnie!!!! Her labs came back good to go and the vet was given the anesthesia protocol that was used for our Singer to ensure no complications occur. Singers can have a different reaction to anesthesia, so we want to make sure the vet is prepared with a protocol developed by a Veterinarian Anesthesiologist and that we used for a spay. Everybody send positive healing energy to Bonnie today!!!!

Bonnie Update! Bonnie continues to improve in the antibiotics she has been deciding for her heinous teeth!! She is settling in with her foster home and being loved on. Gayle says she is an extremely sweet singer, doesn’t make a sound, eats well, and loves being around her... she isn’t a fan of the rain... her current vet bills are a bit over $800 and we anticipate her surgery will get us to $1500 total. There is a lot of uncertainty in total costs for short and long term care, as a lot depends on the damage to the bone from the mouth infection and what the actual mass on her shoulder ends up being. We will keep sharing updates!!! Stay tuned, and please share!! #lovebonnie
