Scottie Rescue & TerrierL, writes:
I have a mostly-Cairn mix here, who was turned over to friends along with a Scottie she was found running with (they pulled both from a shelter).
I cannot spend $$ on a non-Scottie temperament; she looks 3/4 Cairn and is oh, so bubbly compared to a Scottie - I can't place her as a Scottie mix. I called the closest contact and she was OH SO NOT HELPFUL. I am unsure as to what to do as this point. I emailed (X) as well since the Cairn rescuers are just citing "we're full". I wasn't asking them to take her, but to see if I could get some assistance from their national rescue fund.
This girl likely needs to be spayed, have a lipoma on her clavicle removed, and possibly have her teeth cleaned; she's about six or seven, according to my vet. Very friendly and in good health. I have already done heartworm & brucellocis (since I have breeding dogs of my own in the house), but I just can't do major vetting on her as I'm doing the Scotties out of my pocket and losing on most of them, especially since I have THREE Scottie rescues right now alone (plus Colina).
Thanks for anything you can do.
After discussion among the members of the CRUSA INTAKES Board, comes the word on 4 February:
Shell got me hooked up and it appears that Colina is going to get assistance to get spayed, etc.!
I moved her upstairs tonight as her brucellocis test came back (negative, of course!) and I got a quote from my vet for her spay & lump removal (lipoma) so they can call directly to pay for it. Whew!
