Saving Molly

Thank you for stopping by. My name is Samantha and I have started this fundraiser on behalf of my family:

After our dogs Mya and Khia passed away unexpectedly, 28 days apart, our hearts were empty. A few months later, we made our way to the shelter where we met Molly. Our hearts connected instantly and it felt like Khia was saying, She's the one! 

We learned that Molly's time living on the street was detrimental to her health. She was heart worm positive and in need of major dental work. Her teeth looked as though she had been chewing rocks. She was extremely underweight and her body was covered in scars.

Unfortunately, due to losing 2 dogs in the past 4 months after 2 major sicknesses, the financial burden of adopting Molly wasn't feasible. 

In the following months, I would check the shelter's website periodically. Molly's beautiful face was always there. It was breaking my heart. She needed to get out of there and get the care she desparately needed. 

I started seeing Molly's adoption poster in various places in early October.  It was as if fate was pushing us together. 

On October 17, 2015, exactly 6 months to the day we lost Khia, my husband and I drove to the shelter and signed up to foster Molly. As "adoption ambassadors" we have 4 months to find Molly a home or to adopt her ourselves. 

We want nothing more than to adopt Molly. She fits in with our family like she was meant to be with us. Her devotion towards me is incomparable to anything I've ever seen before and it's only been 1 week.  Our dogs Noodle and Macy already seem to be attached to her. The only thing stopping us from signing the adoption paperwork are the medical expenses. 

Molly needs heart worm treatment, most (if not all) of her teeth pulled, and she has a mass behind her left ear.  Her first vet visit (which isn't covered by the shelter) is scheduled for Friday, October 30th, after which I will update this page to include the exact treatments and costs. 

All we want is to give her a life of love and comfort. Whether its a month or years to come.  Please help us do that.

Thank you!

Greg , Samantha, Molly, Noodle, and Macy
