Madeline has had a string of bad luck, starting with being being born 4 years ago into a puppy mill. During the last 4 years she has produced litter after litter of puppies. Something happened, she was limping, the miller released her to a vet, who released her to Aussie Rescue and Placement Helpline. Coming to ARPH is the best thing that could happen to Madeline!!!
Days after Madeline arrived with her foster home she was taken to the vet. Her teeth were in horrible shape, she could barely eat. Her limp was much more pronounced than anticipated. The vet took x rays to determine the source of her limp, Madeline's pelvis was fractured. Now she would need two more surgeries beyond a spay. First up she needed a dental so she could enjoy eating again and put on some weight. At 37 pounds, she was under weight.
A week after arrival Madeline was scheduled for her dental. During the pre-dental exam, the vet felt a lump near her breast. The tumor was odd enough that the vet removed it and another lump during her dental surgery. He sent the lumps out to be biopsied. It was a long week while we all waited to find out the type of mammary tumor. Everyone was happy to find out the tumor was benign!!!
Next up Madeline will be spayed, no more puppies, for this sweet girl!!!! Lastly she will need to have a femoral head and neck removal to her left hip. She will have a long recover, but she will not be in pain anymore.
The vet said said she has as strong a will to live as any dog he's every dealt with. He wants to get her back to normal as soon as possible. Everyone who meets Madeline sees her sweet disposition and her drive to enjoy life. Total expenses will be over $6000 to cover Madeline's surgeries. Will you please donate to help cover our costs?

Ross #14038 Needs Your Help!
Ross is a super handsome laid back 50 pound 2/3 year-old Black Tri. He loves to cuddle and be near his person. Ross came into ARPH from a shelter as an owner surrender because “she had too many dogs.” Ross was found to be heartworm positive. He is not feeling the best right now but is anticipated to make a full recovery with the needed heartworm treatment. Ross is being fostered in Central Indiana with other Aussies. ARPH has always been fortunate to have so many caring donors for Aussies with special needs. Adoption fees rarely cover even the basic cost of routine vetting.
