One of our own just got a wonderful write up from
This is the original post on Read Larry Powell on Wally the Wonderdog.
A BIG DOG WITH A BIG PROBLEM IN BIG D
His name is Wally and he was surrendered to the Dallas Animal Services shelter because he’d been having seizures and his owner didn’t have the money to get him to a vet.
Danielle Fry, the animal transfer coordinator at DAS, issued an appeal and someone answered — St. Clouds Rescue in McKinney. He was transferred to the non-profits care last night, says St Clouds Rescue spokesperson Rosemary Adkins. She told Readlarrypowell.com, “Yes, we are really the lucky rescue that saved Mr. Wally! — with the help of a nice young lady named Lindsey who went and got him at the shelter and brought him to us. We already love him to pieces.”
She says he arrive so late Wednesday that “we could not really find out much .. Wally has not had any seizures since we have had him . Today he got a bath and all cleaned up. Tomorrow [Friday] will be our first visit with our vet at Stonebriar Animal Clinic in Frisco.”
Dr. Lollie Mensik has the rescue monitoring Wally for seizures and any other suspicious thing. So he’s in “observation” and we’ll know soon, perhaps, the source of the seizures.
Rosemary says Wally has been by himself to protect other animals from any communicable problem. “He is a beautiful full St. Bernard that is kind and sweet. We are sorry a person could not care for him due to financial concerns. At St. Clouds Rescue , we are a small rescue that works with St. Bernards and other large breed dogs . We have re-homed over 650 dogs since 2003.”
Obviously, whatever care Wally gets is going to cost money. There is a way to help St. Clouds Rescue deal with unexpected medical expenses such as this. You can go to www.stcloudsrescue.org and donate or, Rosemary says, go to the StoneBriar Animal Clinic in Frisco and “have it go to our hospital bill.”
And, you know, there might just be an opportunity to adopt Wally.
