Who is Bean and why does she have a fund, you ask? Bean is a Great Pyrenees mix from Oklahoma. She was shot twice in the neck with a shot gun at close range. Why? We have no idea, but presumably, like so many other dogs, she was part of an “oopsie litter" and was an unwanted and unloved dog. Bean lucked out and is now living large on a Wisconsin farm, but many of these unplanned pups are not as fortunate.
In honor of Bean, let's stop the oopsies! The cost of caring for an unwanted litter and finding them all homes is far greater than the cost of neutering/spaying, so please consider helping us proactively address this situation.
Our goal is to begin assisting pet owners in the area around Purcell, Oklahoma, the area Bean previously called home. The Purcell Animal Shelter gave wonderful care to Bean after she was shot, so in appreciation of that kindness, Purcell is where we will begin this venture. If funding allows, we will reach out to more shelters in more areas.
Humane Society of Oklahoma will allow us to bring 10 cats and 10 dogs each month to be fixed. The fee for this service is $57/dog and $42/cat. We hope the folks who can afford this fee will pay it, and we will only need to provide the transportation to and from the surgery site. For those who can not afford the fee, we will pay it. No more excuses....get 'er done, folks!
The costs we need covered include:
-Transportation to and from the surgery site, which may include the purchase of a van, if necessary
-Surgery Fees, for those unable to pay, and
-Marketing, if social media doesn't do the trick to bring in the patients.
THANK YOU for any help you are willing to give us!
