Strays in need

Hudson's fund

Goal: $1000.00 | Raised: $1100.00


Started: February 15, 2013  Ended: March 6, 2013



Hudson was abandoned at a pound with an injury to his leg.


It is difficult to say how the damage to his leg occurred, however the damage is very severe.

Medical exam revealed that Hudson has sheared off ligaments in the lateral hock and the Achilles tendon. There are masses of calcification and a chip in the Achilles tendon. Toes/bones have been shredded off the right foot. The damaged to the leg is beyond repair.


Currently Hudson prefers to spend his time lying down as he is unable to place any weight on that leg. He is also on analgesics to help with the pain.

Following the advice of the vet, Hudson will have surgery to amputate his leg.


As he still a young dog life on three legs can be almost identical to the previous four-legged experience. Hudson is an easy going, sweet natured and friendly dog that deserves a chance at a happy life.


We are grateful for any donations towards his vet bill.

Cyclone's fund

Goal: $580.00 | Raised: $790.00


Started: February 9, 2013    Ended: May 27, 2013



Cyclone is a sweet 12 year old Cocker Spaniel boy who had been neglected by his previous owner and found himself in Blacktown Pound.

He arrived at SOS in a filthy condition with a matted coat and fleas. He has ear and eye infections which are currently being treated.


He has some damage to the right eye from a previously untreated eye infection causing scarring which impairs his vision but he is not blind. He has 'dry eye' and needs regular lubrication in both eyes for for the remainder of his years. Cyclone is a little overweight, and has been booked in for a major dental to extract some badly infected teeth.


Despite all of these issues, this little dog's tail never stops wagging and he absolutely loves people (and other dogs).


You can help Cyclone by donating towards the costs of Cyclone's veterinary care.

Daisy's fund (terrier)

Goal: $500.00 | Raised: $530.00

Started: November 30, 2012 Ended: January 22, 2013


Daisy arrived as a stray at a Sydney pound and was never reclaimed by her owners.


Presumably her owners were not interested in getting her back as she has a severe infection in her mouth. An infection that would have taken some time to develop.


The first stop for Daisy after leaving the pound was a visit to the vet. Extensive x-rays were taken of her mouth. She has a very infected mouth and will required extensive dental work and several extractions.


The condition must be causing her pain but throughout her examination she has been a gentle and sweet dog. Always ready with a wag of the tail.

We appreciate any donations towards Daisy's care.

All donations over $2.00 are tax deductile.

Chance was saved from a horrible life. He was neglected to the point of not even being fed.

Dynamite

Goal: $500.00 | Raised: $500.00

Started: August 9, 2012 Ended: August 12, 2012


Dynamite was abandoned at the pound with Daisy. Both were left in dreadful condition.

Both dogs absolutely adore each other and are often seen smooching and playing together. Dynamite doesn’t like to go anywhere without Daisy. He is more outgoing of the two and a big teddy bear seeking cuddles at every opportunity.

Dynamite arrived very skinny with protruding ribs. A visit to the vet revealed that he has scar tissue on both eyes from previous injuries. He also suffers from entropion and will require surgery to prevent further injury to his eyes. The vet has also prescribed an eye medication.

We are grateful for any donations towards his vet account.

Daisy's fund

Goal: $300.00 | Raised: $300.00

Started: August 9, 2012 Ended: December 22, 2012


Daisy was abandoned at the pound with her best friend Dynamite. Both dogs were in dreadful condition.


Daisy is a shy and timid girl; however it doesn’t take her long to warm up to gentle coaxing. She then shows herself to be a very gentle and sweet dog.

She arrived from the pound very skinny with protruding ribs, hips and backbone. However, the most worrying was the dark green discharge. Initially the vet couldn’t tell whether she was suffering from pyometra or had given birth recently and still had something left inside of her.


The vet considered her condition to be very serious so she had an ultrasound and the same day had surgery.

Daisy had dead pups inside. Considering Daisy’s poor condition the surgery went well. The immediate medical attention meant Daisy didn’t develop sepsis and was able to recover. She is currently on antibiotics and eating well to put on some condition.


After all that this poor girl has been through we are determined that she will be rehomed with her best friend Dynamite.


We are very grateful for any donations towards Daisy’s vet bill.

Lola's fund

Goal: $700.00 | Raised: $700.00

Started: April 30, 2012 Ended: November 16, 2012


It is with great sadness that we inform you of Lola's passing.


She died suddenly from complications of Cushing's disease.


Lola had received the best of medical care. She was a loved member of her carer's family getting cuddles and kisses everyday.

RIP Lola Bunny.

We are keeping Lola's fund open. By helping us to pay for Lola's vet bills you will be helping us to rescue and care for other strays that need our assistance.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Previous update on Lola's condition


Lola does have Cushing's disease as was initally suspected. Consequently she will need lifelong oral medication. In order to prevent the reoccurence of Cushings, she will also need to be monitored and have regular specialised blood tests. She is on Trilostane (10mg).


Lola is still in the early stages of treatment. The dosage and frequency of administration may need to be adjusted during this initial treatment period.


We havebeen raising funds for the diagnosis. The initial blood test for the diagnosis was $250.00. Currently we are raising funds for the treatment. Cushings disease requires very specialised and lifelong tests. The regular blood tests cost $185.00 and also require a drug called Synacthen which costs $135.00 and can be used for up to 3 tests. The cost of Trilostane is $190.00 for a 100ml bottle.


You can help Lola by donating to her fund.

Previous update on Lola's condition

This is Lola. She was picked up wandering the streets and was dropped off at the pound. She is an older girl over 8 years.

Lola is not well. She has thinning fur, bad knees but very worring is her very swollen abdomen. Due to her poor condition is she has been released to Save Our Strays under a Duty of Care.


She went straight to the vet to investigate her condition. So far she has had ultrasounds of her abdomen, which have not been conclusive. She has been staying at the vets as she also had to have hydration therapy. Lola is having addition blood work for suspected Cushings disease and will have the results reviewed tomorrow (Tuesday 8 May).


Cushing's disease is the production of too much adrenal hormone, in particular corticosteroids. Cushing's disease causes increased drinking, increased urination, increased appetite, panting, high blood pressure, hair loss, a "pot belly" swollen abdomen, thinning of the skin, calcified lumps in the skin, susceptibility to skin infections and diabetes, weakening of the heart and skeletal muscles, nervous system disease and more. At this time Lola is not showing increased drinking or urination however she does exhibit most of the other signs.


We have increased the goal again by $200 to keep Lola's fund live while she is being diagnosed and a treatment plan formulated.

You can help us help little Lola by donating towards her veterinary costs. We will continue to adjust the fundraising goal as her diagnosis and treatment progress.

A sad passing.


Sophia has died suddenly from complications of the cat flu. Sophia was a loved member of her carer’s family and received excellent medical care. However, the cat flu and extremely poor condition that she was in when abandoned at the pound took tremendous toll on her.


RIP beautiful girl.
