There are good people in the world. Only three left, and they all found each other, but it’s good to know they’re out there. -*Mat https://www.gofundme.com/shelterfarmsanctuary Hi, everyone. We’ve had a tough day here at Shelter. Our dog, Totoro, has been vomiting for a couple of days now and it has been decided that he has an intestinal obstruction that isn’t going to be able to move on its own. We made the decision to proceed with surgery, and they started just a few minutes ago. Our boy has challenges already, because he lives with a neuromuscular condition called myotonia. His brain is unable to communicate effectively with his muscles, which causes his body to stiffen and then causes him to fall - a lot. He is on twice-daily medication to allow him to function pretty normally, and it really doesn’t bother him much. He’s always happy, and we think his condition helped him to overcome his early challenges in life. Totoro, formerly known as Russet, came from a basically feral life on a rural property where he and his ten siblings were kept with a variety of adult dogs. They had almost zero human interaction. Suncoast Animal League took the five-month-old pups, named them after potatoes, and worked with them to help them understand that humans are generally good. We are still in touch with most of the people who adopted them, and we try to get them together a couple of times a year. Most of them still have significant anxiety outside their homes. Totoro is our boy - he is not a sanctuary rescue and will never be adoptable. His medical costs, which are estimated to be $5300-$7200, will come from our personal finances, not our sanctuary funds. However, having earmarked a significant portion of our own personal funds as backup sanctuary funding, this puts us in a stressful place as far as taking in any more animals. Our priority is providing them with excellent care, and the elimination of our safety net is not something we take lightly. So many of you have generously contributed to our startup fund, and that money has gone directly to pig, cat, and chicken feed, building costs for ensuring the safety of our fences and shelters, vetting, and equipment for animal care. I am asking that you share our GoFundMe with anyone you know who might be interested in helping us make sure we are fully funded for our sanctuary animals. We just got a call about seven piglets who need our help, and we can’t turn them away. Please help us if you can, or share with your friends. We are so grateful. *EDIT* We’re also taking in five chickens next weekend along with the seven piglets.
