Help Marsha Keep Her Furry-Babies!

Hello, I'm Donna and I want to tell you a story about Marsha and her Fur Babies.  As most Fur Friends and Fur Parents know, our Dogs, Cats other animal friends are not really pets-they are our family.  The thought of giving them up is no less horrifying than the idea of giving up one of our human children   So, losing a Fur Baby is a very difficult and heart breaking event.

    So I'd like you to meet Masha's babies: First there is Bre-a fistey black Papillon Shcipperke mix.  She knows how to get what she wants and can charm a diamond from a jewler . Then there are  the two loving and gentle Pit Bulls, Tucker and Brindle.  They look tough, but they are as gentle as bunnies :).  All three are rescue dogs and are very closely bonded to their mommy.  They are happy and active doggies and love to run free in their enclosed back yard in Florida. 
 So why does Marsha need help keeping her babies?  Well, they all lived in New York City, and sadly, earlier this year, Marsha lost her job.  Things were not going well in her new job search, and so they picked up and moved to Omaha, Nebraska, where she felt she would be able to find a job-but she was not able to find a job that would allow her to be self sufficient.  So a friend in Florida found a job for her and invited her and her babies to stay in her home, so she picked up her babies and moved to Florida.  Unfortunately, Marcia did not realize until after she had moved that her friend turned out to be a mentally unstable alcoholic.  In fact, this friend almost caused one of her fur babies to be killed!
     Marsha IMMEDIATELY packed her things and moved into a temporary home where another friend had offered to let her stay for four weeks.  It has now been five weeks and she has to moved out of this home on the weekend of October 28th-29.  She found a home to move into, however, she does not have the funds to pay for it.  She's very concerned that soon she will be homemless and living in her car.

     Marsha loves her babies, and while she is a big girl and can handle being homelss,  she is very concerned for Bre, Tucker and Brindle.  She knows that this would not be fair to her babies and doesn't want them to have to go through being homelss. She has looked into temporary fostering, but the local animal rescue has advised her to surrender all three!  She is horrified and conflicted, as she knows that her babies would not be happy living in a car with her, but she loves them desperately and says, "Without a place to go, I am forced to give up my babies and potentially have to move back to Nebraska. My babies are all I have and have been with me through my darkest hours. They have literally kept me going. Without them I am completely shattered."  She also says that they are very attached to her.

     Please consider helping Marsha and her Furry Children find a stable home environment so that they can get back on their feet and continue to be happy in their forever home!
     Donations of all amounts are helpful and greatly appreciated.  Also, all donations will go directly to Marsha so that she can find a home for herself and Bre, Tucker, and Brindle.
     Thank you for reading her story and please pray about what you can do to help :)
