I used to be troubled by the fact that people would call me in my role at WSU's veterinary college and complain about cases like this. They all went something like this: "That much money for a damned dog! And when there are children in this town alone without a decent pair of underwear? My God people have lost their minds." After one particularly frustrating day I went up and spoke to our counseling psychologist and longtime friend, Dr. Kathy Ruby. Wisely she said, in a sense they are correct and at the same time, "Why would anyone ever look any act of benevolence as something negative? Especially when one considers most people and animals in need will never feel the warmth or benefit of such kindness. There is always far more need than there is charity. We should instead celebrate any act of giving because it is those people who encourage us to be better, more generous people toward any cause." I have slept soundly since.

Crying reading this. I'm always amazed at the way humans can be with animals, either monsters or angels . This lady is an angel. Jane UK
God bless you as He has blessed Theia and all who have contributed and prayed for her recovery. He has a plan for all of us-to share love with our dog friends and family members with four legs.
Theia is certainly a MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will be praying for her as she goes to surgery tomorrow. Please keep posting about her. You are one special lady to do all of this for THEIA.
Hi there. Thank you for caring for this milagrita! She probably needs help with her eyes as I saw she cannot blink well....she will dry her corneas out and develop a pigment army keratitis. Tacrolimus drops or possibly lid surgery might help.

Hi I am willing to give this precious pup a wonderful home if you cannot find a permanent home for her. I have to rescue dogs now and live on a large piece of property.
Bless you for tending to this beautiful animal in need. With the monies that are being collected, I also pray that you pay it forward with other animals in need. Shame on those using this page to promote donations for themselves or others. And, ESPECIALLY those that say, "it's JUST a dog"! Don't you know that dogs/cats are the only company that many in our society have. Shame, shame.
Everyone please help me visit my family in california im a junior at georgia tech and i havent saw my family the day i left for college so can anybody please help me
What a wonderful story of a will to live and great kindness. I hope there are many happy years ahead. Came across the story completely by chance whilst searching for online content for my son's band "THEIA" here in the UK. So glad I did. My wife and I have 6 dogs and do holidays for dogs, so this story touched us deeply. All the best.
What a wonderful thing you are doing. If she needs a home, I would love to help out. Thank you
It's a good thing you do. Animals deserve a shot at a good life, and Theia deserves a good Forever Home! (And I suspect she already found it with you!) In 90 minutes I head South to Fredericksburg, VA to pick up a 3 1/2 y/o Rescue Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to Foster until he finds the Forever Home he deserves. Thankfully, he was not abused or mistreated by people, but he was part of a home brew Breeding Operation, and later shunted around to different owners, evening being sold on Craig's List - a real no-no for good homing of a pet!! He needs a little stability and love until he can be adopted out to a vetted family by a very caring CKCS Rescue group. Hopefully, I and my 8 y/o Tri Cav can help him get ready for that loving Forever Home...
Thanks for your comments/story below, Charlie Powell. I can appreciate that many people don't or can't understand why some other folks might help an animal in need rather than another person, but in truth... there are so very many resources out there for people in need...not so many for animals in need. We're like the Red Cross for abused & neglected animals & I'll never stop helping animals in need as long as I'm able to, (just as I'd never turn a child in need away). Theia & needy animals like her.... they still love unconditionally, even though they've been so very unloved -- my question is: how can anyone NOT help them???
If I had the money I would help yal what yal are doing for her is amazing yal are good people keep up the good work hope yal get the money you need for her surgery god bless yal we need more good people like you for all these dogs getting beat and left to die
