Help for River – Cortland, NY

Thank you all for your kindness; donations, attention, sharing, thoughts, and prayers for River!  She is doing well however still struggling to breathe and waiting on her next surgery where she will have a permanent stent placed.  I’ve been working hard researching, raising awareness, crafting, and doing anything and everything I can to try and help the situation and raise money.  We had a news story about River, thanks to Winks mommy, which was amazing and after that we had over $1000 come in.  Also, from my crafting and yard sales I’ve made another couple hundred and will keep going as long as I can until I either sell everything or until the date of surgery arrives.  Thanks again.  Please visit River @ or on facebook @

Here are a few new pics and as always Thank you and your foundation ♡♡♡

I’m truly sorry for sending out all of these special fund drives, but these surgeries are very expensive and all of these dogs are in critical need of having them performed. River is a truly adorable and very much loved family dog. She had a very unusual complication occur during a simple spay and now is facing a life changing surgery. She simply can hardly breathe.

This surgery is very hard to perform and only a few veterinary hospitals have the capability of performing this surgery, thus making it very expensive. This wonderful family has spent all they had, $6,000, for the first surgery that placed a temporary stent in her nose, but now she is in need of a permanent stent.

River is a therapeutic dog for the family’s youngest son who has autism and addisons disease. Please help River get this surgery she so badly needs……….she is only a 1 year old puppy and has her whole life with this loving family!
