After such a wonderful post yesterday from Sophie, I hate posting another sad one. This is an e-mail I got from Kentuckiana Pug Rescue yesterday.
You HATE puppy mills...right? And you wonder..how can you help? What can YOU do to make a difference? Well, here is your chance!
Edward, Jacob and Bella were pulled from a puppy mill by a kind hearted person who works tirelessly to get these dogs to their breed specific rescues. We were thankfully asked to take in this Trio of Terrific little Puggies!
Being whisked immediately to the vet (photo of all 3 is at the vet's office), they were diagnosed with upper respiratory infections. Edward however, is a true victim of the poor breeding at puppy mills. He suffers from dysplastic elbows as well as a hernia.
He is unable to bear weight on his front legs at this point and does suffer some discomfort. His surgical costs will be very expensive. We are asking all of you who can to please contribute to Edward's medical expenses. Can you find it in your heart to help this defenseless little Pug puppy see it thru to his twilight years with some sense of normalcy??
We have all hope and expectation that once surgery is performed, with some TLC and physical therapy, Edward will be a very functional little Pug.
If each person contributed $10.00 -20.00 we would have enough to cover his surgery in no time at all. We know things are tough right now, but these Pugs don't stand a chance without the compassion and dedication of people like you!

Thanks for helping our new friend Edward if you are able. There are too many sad stories for doggies going on right now, and we hope that all of the doggies who need help will be getting it soon! Thanks for being such kind, caring, and compassionate friends to us all!
