I had no business being on Petfinder this morning, but that is another story... Amelia is in the municipal shelter in Sand Springs OK. http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=8763998
I left a message before the shelter opened and a delightful young lady named Amanda called back- from her personal cell phone since the shelter does not have long distance. The shelter has very limited resources, and no provision for vet care. She described Amelia as very sweet but increasingly uncomfortable as the "wet smelly" sores under her neck are getting worse, and she is scratching them harder. (UGH!)
Amelia is being seen by a local vet now- who does not accept credit cards, but will let me send a check to pay for her treatment-- lots of angels in this story already!
Is anyone here close to Sand Springs OK? I live on the east coast- in NC, and have 3 beautiful Saints of my own, and a precious Newf courtesy of some amazing BPO women, so there is not much else I can do-- alone, anyway. I will post an update when I get a diagnosis (and I requested a fecal and a heartworm test too). I have emailed OK Saint rescue, but it looks like they have a lot of dogs right now, and I do not want to assume that they will be able to help.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Miracles?
Thanks you, and I will post a proper intro soon!!
