Pup’s Hope Fund
On one of the stormiest nights we can remember here in our part of the Shenandoah Valley, a little Beagle mix puppy no more than 6 weeks old was dumped in the woods near a family farm. Her cries were heard from the dense forest as the storm began to rage. A young man from a neighboring farm went out into the woods searching but was unable to locate her. The following morning she was sitting in their lane looking up at the house on the hill with hopeful eyes.
She was brought indoors and within hours we stopped at this friends home and were introduced to this big eyed, adorable little pup. Of course we brought her home with us! Though we had three other dogs, this tiny puppy captured our hearts like no other dog we had ever had. Literally, we fell hopelessly in love with her. She was named Sarah Elizabeth, then Sarah Puppy, and finally called ….simply…”Pup.” For over 13 years Pup gave us immense joy. We had been helped by The Mosby Foundation when she had her two ACL surgeries. At age 13, declared to be in perfect health at her last vet visit, Pup suddenly had a lump in her neck. After a trip to VA TECH we were told she had aggressive Lymphoma and might have her another month.
We brought her home with heavy hearts but determined to make her last bit of time with us the best that it could be. We were able to enjoy her for another 6 months before she said she had had enough and asked us to help her cross the Rainbow Bridge. The loss of Pup was devastating as she had been the dog who helped us through the nightmare of grief following the tragic death of our daughter. Pup’s Hope, a fund for dogs with Lymphoma and other cancers was born. Pup lives on in Little Pup, another Beagle mix puppy we rescued two months after her passing from a gassing shelter in NC.
Jack’s Memorial Heart Fund
Jack came into my life when I found him as a stray dog on the streets. He had a thick yellow rope around his neck. No collar. Skin and bones. I tried advertising in the Richmond Times and no one claimed him. He was meant to be mine.
He was a wonderful and grateful puppy- he loved walks, playing ball on the stairs, sitting on his “perch” which was a twin bed on the second floor of my townhouse where he could see all of the action. He never had a potty accident or chewed anything. It was like he knew he had hit the jackpot and wanted to stay on his best behavior. He was my little buddy. We did everything together.
Over the years, Jack settled into his routine and we called him “the king.” He loved dog parks, rides in the “pup truck,” his babysitters/dog walkers and especially his big brother Marley (also a rescue). He was diagnosed with mitral valve sclerosis in 2011 and we put him on meds to help his heart muscle contract better as well as blood pressure medicine to ease the pressure that the heart had to pump against. He did really well with that and thankfully never had any overt signs of heart failure. He was diagnosed with an adrenal tumor around 2013 and that was what made his last years so hard for him.
I was so incredibly blessed to have my Jack, and he would want me to help other animals in need as I did him.
Spay & Neuter Program
The Mosby Foundation is offering spay/neuter financial assistance for families wanting to do responsible care for their dogs, but who can’t afford to have their dogs “fixed.” At the present time, we are operating from privately donated funds since we have exhausted all of our grant funds.
Pet Food Pantry
The Mosby Foundation’s Pet Food Pantry was started in the fall of 2009 during the very difficult financial times of the Great Recession our country was facing then, leading to an upsurge in some families surrendering their pets to shelters for lack of funds to feed and care for them. We realized that we would need to partner with an existing social service or volunteer group to distribute food to those who truly needed it, and we were fortunate to find a great partner in our areas largest people food pantry, the Verona Community Food Pantry, a 501c3 agency with a large volunteer base, an active board, and an angel for an Executive Director. Hunter Fauber started the food pantry out of his garage years ago, and it now operates out of a warehouse facility on the grounds of the Augusta County Government Center. The Food Pantry has an income screening process and set hours for distribution, so it was an ideal partner for our pet food pantry.
