Dog Kennel Fire -Please Help Rebuild

Created November 16, 2018
We are looking to our friends in the local community to help. Nancy Massi of Aldrich Street Kennels is a local breeder who has been a long-term client of Northern Rhode Island Animal Hospital and we have been providing care to her adults and litters of puppies for years.  Unfortunately, the indoor kennel where Nancy houses some of her dogs completely burned down the morning of November 16th.  All of the dogs made it out and are currently being evaluated; one is currently receiving intensive care in hospital.  We are looking to raise money to help Nancy rebuild the kennel, replace all of the supplies that were lost and help with medical care.  Donations in any amount are appreciated.

We want to provide an update for everyone. We are sad to relay that Casper, the Golden Retriever in the picture who sustained the worst injuries, was euthanized at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists late on Friday. Everything was done to try to save him, but he was very badly burned and had severe smoke damage to his lungs, among other injuries. Our condolences go out to Nancy and her family; we know how special Casper was to them.
We want to thank all the doctors and staff at NRIAH who worked tirelessly to treat all the dogs on Friday. Along with Casper, two other dogs who were also more critical were transferred to Ocean State Vet on Friday; we are happy to report that they are now both discharged home and doing okay. We want to thank the staff at Ocean State for accommodating us and getting the dogs right in to treat and evaluate.
We want to thank the pharmacy at Landmark Medical Center in Woonsocket, RI, who donated a medication that we needed to treat the dogs for smoke inhalation.
We also want to thank Kevin at Blackstone Animal Control who helped Nancy out on Friday and transported some of the pets to the hospital for medical care.
And of course, huge thanks to all the brave firefighters who fought the blaze and trudged through the snow to get the eight dogs out of the fire.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the campaign and for your kind words and support for Nancy and her family during this time.
