Princess Leia - Lucky Kitty!

Our sweet, gentle 6-month-old Princess Leia had her spay surgery on January 15, 2014, and, sadly, she developed an infection at her spay site. Because it was a holiday weekend, Leia had to be taken to the emergency vet, where they flushed out the wound, put in two staples and prescribed some medication.

Leia is back at her foster home now, recovering from this ordeal and wearing the cone of shame with as much grace as a young princess can muster. We are keeping a close eye on her and expect a full recovery. However, we need help covering the costs of the emergency vet appointment.

Please donate to Leia's critical care fund:

After being abandoned by his family because he was too big to fit in the car when they moved, Zeke found himself in a cold shelter. Lucky Dog Animal Rescue came to his rescue and swooped him up and out of the cold shelter.

LADR quickly realized that he was limping and in pain. We did many x-rays and tests only to learn he has sever muscle atrophy in his shoulder and needed surgery. Then ongoing physical therapy.

Zeke went in for shoulder surgery on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. His foster has reported that he came out of surgery a bit droopy, but could tell that he was happy to start his recovery and pain free life!

On the first day of his recovery, Zeke has had to wear a cone to protect him from getting into the area where surgery was performed. Being the scamp that we all have come to love, he quickly learned how to escape the cone! Quick thinking came into play and Zeke's foster family put a t-shirt on him so that he couldn't get out! It makes for such a cute picture.

While all this surgery and recovery does not come at a low cost, we here at LDAR think Zeke is worth every bit of it and hope our supporters do too and will help us cover his recovery!! DONATE TO ZEKE!

Lucky Cat Leo's Amputation

For those of you following Leo's story, he just had his stitches removed! He is no longer hissing at all of the other cats. He is very mobile--he uses his litterbox well & can go up and down the stairs. He is doing SO well now! We are still looking for a bit more to cover his medical care. Every little bit counts!!

Here is the link to Leo's fundraiser:

Lucky Cats Bailey & Frankie Need a Little extra Luck!

Bailey and Frankie need a little extra Luck!

Many people read about Frankie's trials with his earlier eye surgery and our efforts to save his eye. Unfortunately, we were unable to save Frankie's eye and sadly it needs to be removed. 

Poor Bailey needs dental work to treat severe gum disease, he may even need a few extractions!

Please help us raise the funds to cover these two Lucky Cats so they can continue their search of a forever home as healthy little guys!

Scamp: Healing Up and Stealing the Spotlight!

It's been one week since Scamp was released from the hospital, and everything's been coming up roses for our Parvo puppy superhero!  His foster mom reports he is adventuring around (to the extent a quarantined puppy can!) and up to normal puppy shenanigans. He has figured out how to climb out of his exercise pen and joins his foster family in the kitchen if they leave the room. He's a perfectly happy, goofy puppy, but not crazy. He had lost some weight while he was battling the virus, but his foster reports his appetite is healthy and he's now up to 21 lbs. He is going to be a big boy, especially if he continues to eat like he does and grows into his paws!

Scamp also had an opportunity this week to take part with his human foster sister in filming for our new Lucky Dog Documentary, currently in production with our friends from Creative Liquid Productions. And, as it turns out, the camera loves him as much as every person he's come in contact with does.


Though he's a cinematic natural, Scamp's film appearances are pro bono and he's not collecting any royalties, which means we continue to fundraise on behalf of him and his emergency vet care!
