Help Ashley save LUNA

I am raising money to help a lady out with a BIG heart for dogs - especially Dalmatians. Ashley runs a doggy day home in Calgary and she also fosters, rescues and has three dogs of her own - one of which is deaf.  

Over a year ago, Ashley drove to BC to rescue a Dalmatian, Luna through no fault of her own. She drove in a snow storm and did it all on her own using her own expense. She then invested 100s of hours of time in training Luna, giving her some basic rules to live by and socializing her into her day home. 

We (Ashley and I) then thought we had found Luna's Furever Home in Tumbler Ridge BC. We arranged to get her to the new home and everything seemed to be going well. Since being in her new home, Luna has had extremely bad weight loss and was deathly underweight. The new family agreed to send Luna to Calgary to have access to more vets and opinions on her rapid weight loss. 

Ashley arranged for Luna to come and spend time with her in Calgary.  After much testing and vet treatment; also with a change in diet, Luna put on weight and was looking very good. Luna returned to BC only to have the owner contact Ashley again with some "behavioral issues" and further weight loss again.  None of these problems were evident when Luna was living with Ashley.

So once again, Ashley is driving 15 hours to collect Luna as she is being surrendered.  The trip is going to cost Ashley $600 (the agreement that Ashley came to with the family to get the dog back), gas money and Luna needs special dietary food to ensure she remains healthy. 

Ashley has a huge heart and is always fostering and rehoming dogs all at her own expense. If everyone I know in the dal world alone could contribute just $10 then we will reach our target in no time.
Ashley recently rehomed Max, Gus and several puppies. She is not in a position financially to do this rescue but we need to get this dog back and kept here in Ashley's care. 

If you can please help out - it doesn't matter how small the donation.
