Update July 25 – Here he is!! Sammie sailed through his surgery, and his incision is healing up nicely. He’s not quite ready to go to ground yet, but he is getting there!! Sammie’s biopsy was cancerous, but it’s a very slow growing form and only has a 5% chance of coming back. The best news of all? He found a forever family! Sammie is one happy little guy, and we couldn’t be more thrilled for him! Thank you all so much for your donations and support. Sammie is healthy and home because of your generosity!
Update July 11 – We reached our goal and Sammie’s surgery is scheduled for tomorrow! Thank you all so very much for donating. We couldn’t do it without your support!
Sammie needs our help! He is a 9 year old bundle of love and kisses. The poor little guy has a tumor on his back right leg and another one on his back left leg. They need to come off because they could be dangerous. He’s a healthy, happy little guy and in good health otherwise. We want him to be able to run and play for years to come! Won’t you please help us help him?
The vet estimates that Sammie’s surgery will cost about $600 and Sammie must have this surgery done before we can find his forever family. Please help us help Sammie by giving! No amount is too small… it all adds up! You can donate with PayPal and all major credit cards. Please notate that your donation is for Sammie in the name field.

11/23/17 – Astro is scheduled for surgery. As you can see from the video, he really needs to have it done.
He drags his leg and rubs his foot raw. Once his leg is amputated, he will be much better! We have raised $195 of our $800 goal. Please give a few dollars if you can. It all adds up! Thank you!
Astro came into Fort Bend County Animal Services in November with an injury to his back paw and leg. Russell Rescue got him into a foster home and to the vet to assess his injuries and it has been determined that Astro needs to have his leg amputated. He hobbles along and walks on top of his foot.
Astro’s leg is badly broken and damaged and has been for quite a while. Astro is in pain and we need to get him scheduled for surgery as soon as possible. The vet estimates that the bill will be approximately $800. Please help us help Astro by giving. No amount is too small… it all adds up!
If you prefer, you can also donate directly to the vet clinic providing Astro’s care:

Make sure you tell them it’s for Astro. Thank you from Astro!
