******Baxter had surgery today (Tuesday) at 2 pm EST and is doing well - Vet said everything looks good - he should have full range of motion once healed. Thanks to all of you who helped get Baxter the surgery he needed!!!********
A Check for $850 is on it's way Fedex to Indiana for Baxter's Surgery Which is Now Set for Tuesday at 2 pm! We Still Have A Ways to Go - PLease consider a donation to LOLIN or a Purchase from WIK. 100% of the Sales Price will go to Baxter*******
WIK is going to help LOLIN's (Love of Labs Indiana) latest rescue Baxter get the surgery he needs to be adoptable.
This incredible group (which I learned about from Karen/Sloigo) pulled this lab from a shelter where his family had dumped him b/c they could not afford his ACL surgery - he would have been PTS if not for LOLIN.
Right now the surgery is scheduled for Tuesday but can only happpen if the full amount is riased for surgery ($800 - $1200).
If anyone wants to help and get a great gift at the same time - you can buy WIK's Kindness Treat Totes - mini canvas totes that come in 5 colors and come with a bag full of Old Mother Hubbard Assorted Flavor Treats inside. A number of folks here have purchased them in the past and I think can attest to the quality of the product....
I will donate 100% of the sale price ($19.95) of every bag sold between now and Tuesday to Baxter.
Thank you so much Kate, for the generous offer to help!
Baxter is a WONDERFUL dog that has stolen the hearts of our group members! Sadly, there are so many dogs every day tossed to the side. We do our best to help those that we know are otherwise healthy & adoptable. Baxter, even in the pain he must be in, has the constant happy lab tail that could knock you over. The vet has checked him out & said he is a good candidate for repair.
You can go to the main LOLIN page http://www.lolin.org/
scroll down to where you see a lab in a wheel chair, below that is Baxter & his story. There you will find a "donate" button that will link you to pay pal or you can email us & ask for our actual vets address & mail something to the vet with Baxters name "c/o" LOLIN.
Thank You ALL!
