Abby's Angels is a 501c3 organization who rescues dogs and cats from high kill shelters in the upstate South Carolina area. Right now their vet bills are getting away from them, and they need your help. Abby's is known for taking some of the most difficult medical cases, where they realize there will be huge vet bills involved.
They do this not only for the love of animals, but because they have faith that animal lovers who read of their service to the community will cover the majority of the vet bills. They were one of the first rescues to step up to help puppy mill dogs from two alleged busts back during the summer.
This week alone, seven more animals were rescued into their care, and all must be cleared by a vet before they can start helping them find their forever homes.
Here's a recent case as an example.
Abby's Angels picked up Aerosmith in Charlotte, NC on October 11. Aerosmith was adopted from their rescue nine months ago (thank God for microchips!). He was found lost and no one has been able to reach his owner. To make this situation harder, Aerosmith is exhibiting some neurologic issues, stumbling gait, wobbliness, etc.
Abby's Angels took him to the vet, where blood work to try to determine what might be causing his wobbling and neurologic behavior was done. The vet went ahead and started him on prednisone to help with any possible inflammation. Aerosmith has no signs of trauma. Despite feeling so strange, Aerosmith is a sweet, gentle boy. He turns those eyes on you and you can't help but fall in love.
Aerosmith is doing better since starting the prednisone, but the rescue is still waiting to hear back with a diagnosis.
Abby's currently has large outstanding bills at Wade Hampton Veterinary Clinic (864) 244-1658, and Care Emergency Vet Clinic (864) 591-1923. They are desperate to get these accounts cleared so we can continue our much needed work.
A donation page has been set up at Go Fund Me for those of you who wish to help with their vet bills. If you can't help, please share this article with those who can. To keep up with Aerosmith, as well as the many other animals in their care, their Facebook page is here.
