I contacted the Shelter last night to ask about<br><br>
Gretchen and the likely hood of her pulling through. I was told the she will come out just fine. She just needs the skin graphs as you can see. So please consider making a donation. Even if you can only send 5 or 10 bucks. It all adds up. I am sending my check today. I hope you do the same. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> You can also use pay pal on the website provided below.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Horrifying photos, but this dog needs donations ASAP! Dog is located in San Diego, CA.<br><br>

Gretchen Medical Fund<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Emergency Medical Funds are needed A.S.A.P. to pay for the ongoing care of Gretchen, a 7-year old, spayed female German Shepherd who was recently bit by a BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
This poor girl has had ongoing operations to remove decaying skin. Due to her condition, she has had to be transferred to a specialty dermatology clinic, where they continue to try to save her. Until this is under control, she will also need more lab tests, medications, etc.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
The veterinarian bill is already over $3000.00. Gretchen's "Dad" who brought her to San Diego to live with him 5 years ago, is on SSI, and can't afford the bills. He has already paid $1000, and taken out Care Credit for some of the expenses.

That is awful! Never seen anything like that because of a spider bite. My dog got bit by a spider, and she was put on antibiotics. It cost me $200 dollars, but it was not as bad as this poor dog.

So <i>that's</i> where they got the idea for those dogs in Resident Evil.<br><br><br><br>
The amount of skin lost makes me wonder how long it went unnoticed before the dog was taken to the vet.

No, I do not work for the shelter. The letter was sent to from the Boston Animal Defense League.<br><br>
I called the shelter and they said the pup would be good to go after the skin graphs. That is what is so costly.

I'm a holistic healer and can do distance healing. I would be more than willng to send healing light to Gretchen. All I need is your permission to do so. Please keep in mind that healing will be received by Gretchen at the level that she is accepting of.
