Honoring A Friend
Today, thanks to your donations, we sponsored a visit to our furrends at the East Springfield Veterinary Hospital for Neggie. Neggie and his companion Rosa have just been added to the Kane's Krusade family. Neggie is 14 and has lived with Rosa all his life. A few days ago he lost his appetite and started limping. Rosa feared the worst. After examination, a possible neck condition was found. Neggie will be on pain medication and monitored over the next week and a half for improvement. We provided Neggie with his first C.A.R.E. Kit of canned food, treats and dry food to improve his appetite. He also received a harness, flea/tick treatment and a dog bed. Rosa was so grateful for our help. She lives on a fixed income and has no transportation.
But the story gets even better. Rosa spoke of a woman that helped her for many years with dog food for Neggie. That woman turned out to be our friend Debbie LaBruzzo who passed away last week. We are so glad that we can continue Debbie's work of helping Neggie and Rosa. Rosa said she lights a candle for Debbie every day and says a prayer for the woman that was so kind to her. By helping this family today, we feel like we are lighting a candle for Debbie too.
