Please donate to help us: This sweet young cocker pup was born with a heart problem (Pulmonic Stenosis) and needed surgery ASAP to live. She has had her surgery and is doing well but is having a hard time being confined while recovering because she is a youngster. We are still taking donations as her care will be a long road of recovery before she can be adopted to a loving home. Thank you to all who donated to help this sweet cocker girl pup live. We stepped up to help her when the breeder didn't care enough to do the right thing. Checks can be sent to: CCR, P.O.

Hi There, No applications will be accepted for me until I am well enough to be adopted. I have had my life saving surgery and now have a long road of recovery ahead before I can be adopted out. Please, No phone calls or emails unless you just want to know how I am doing. To those of you who are kind enough to donate to my vet care, CCR will be happy to give you updates.
My name is Katie Sue, aka Goat. I am just a young pup. At 11 weeks old I needed immediate surgery to save my life and thanks to CCR the surgery was done on November 15th and I am doing well. I was part of a litter of pups born July 25th of this year to a breeder. Within just a few weeks she realized that I wasn't feeling well so she took me to NC State for a heart echo. The vet diagnosed me with a grade 6/6 heart murmur saying that I have Pulmonic Stenosis-a severe condition. He told her that I could fall over dead at any given moment unless she agreed to do surgery to save my life. She told him that I was of no value to her if it was going to cost her the price he gave her. She refused to do surgery saying It wasn't worth it to her to save my life. She did take the heart medicine that he gave her and he told her to restrict me from playing or being a puppy, just crate rest and heart medicine to slow down my over burdened heart.
At home, I was never given any medicine, the breeder just let me continue to live in pain knowing that I could die any time. She didn't care that I wasn't feeling well, needed the medicine to help my heart and I needed love and kindness too. Instead, I was miserable, in pain and with no human to care what happened to me. The vet found out that the breeder hadn't bothered to give me the life saving heart medicine. He decided to get me away from her by asking the lady if she would agree to give me up and allow them to surrender me over to a rescue if they would take me in. She agreed, so he contacted this rescue, explained my situation and told them what was needed medically to help me live my life as close to that of a normal dog as possible. This nice lady rescue owner came to get me, got a 2nd opinion from the rescue vet and had to raise $2500 to $3000 to pay for my life saving care of surgery done at NC State. My care will now include several ultrasounds, medication, and 6 to 9 months of recuperation, so vet costs could be more, depending on what's needed. Time was critical.....this rescue needed immediate financial help to save my life! Thank you so much to all of you who showed your kindness by donating to help me live......the financial help was greatly appreciated. I wasn't ready to die. Eventually after my long recovery, I look forward to finding a home, someone to love me because I am special and hopefully it will be with someone who will always care about me and never let me suffer ever again. Donations are still needed and greatly appreciated as my care will be several months before I am ready for a home. Please donate to:
