Help Warren with surgery costs
Warren is a 2 1/2 year old Black Lab service dog trained by NEADS, Dog for deaf and disabled Americans in MA. Salisbury Elementary School had the good fortune of being matched with Warren in April 2014 as a full time Theraputic Service Dog.
Warren has had a tremendous positive impact on our students. He gives them unconditional love, comfort and develops a trusting relationship with a canine. Warren has daily visits with students to decrease anxieties and provide positive reinforcement. Warren provides support to all students and staff alike in many ways, some of which are indescribable.
However, recently we learned Warren has a serious illness which requires significant medical attention. He has Mast Cell Tumors. Although this type of tumor is very aggressive and often travels throughout the body, at this point all tests reveal the tumors are contained to one area.
We are seeking funds to pay for various tests and surgery Warren will require in order to bring him back to good health and continue to enjoy a healthy happy life at SES. Please consider donating to Warren's medical expenses, as your donation will not only impact Warren but an entire school population of 550 students and staff as well as his human family alike.
A special note to the parents of SES students: The children have not been told of Warrens illness as not to cause sadness or a higher level of anxiety. You may choose to talk to your children about this in the manner you feel your child/children will understand.
Warren, students, staff and community thanks you in advance for any contribution you can give. Every $1.00 will help.
Any funds not used for Warren will be donated to a canine organization.
Because of your generosity, we now have the comfort of knowing that we not only can pay for Warren's surgery, but have the funds to cover any unforseen costs that could arrive if surgery reveals complications. In addition, we will have the ability to pay for his "after care" needs, such as medicines and treatments, etc.
We are truly blessed by the tremendous kindness you have shown. The entire Salisbury Elementary community thanks you, my family is grateful beyond words, in addition, his weekend family, the Annis family who taught him to live in a home and lastly, the inmate who trained him for 14 months, we all thank you.
I promise to continue bringing Warren to those who need him and spread the canine love to those he can help and comfort with his light and love. Our dedication to this mission and furthering the use of therapy dogs in school is endless.
Good morning! I see that you have raised the necessary funds and am so glad that you did so. I was trying to contact someone in order to offer the services of our facility, Animal Eye Care of New England, to Warren and your community. We would happily donate our time/services/supplies free of charge. Obviously, you are in good hands and have scheduled the procedure-the offer still stands should you need it for any reason. www.animaleyecareofne.com Best of luck to Warren! He's clearly very loved!
I am interested in knowing hoe Warren did with his surgery and how he is doing now???
Jennifer & Warren, Leko (also a NEADS dog) and I want to wish you both the best of luck on his upcoming surgery. It made us very happy to see such support from so many.
