SSR has NEVER DENIED a dog vet care. Not only do we treat every illness we seek out the best and the pros. Eleanor came to us as a stray from West Virginia, from our friends atB.A.R.C Boone Animal Rescue Coalition. She was found in a park with a limp. We sent her to our vet where we discovered she had a broken pelvis and we paid for a FHO - femoral head ostectomy. After Eleanor arrived in Jersey City, we noticed immediately that she walked with a limp and may be in pain. We took her to an ER vet that same day, then our regular vet, and finally we took her to see the director of orthopedic surgery, Dr. Robert C Hart at The Animal Medical Center ! He said Eleanor has a lot of scar tissue from her FHO, is probably in pain daily, that she will need a hip replacement and it will be a difficult surgery. But he and his team will take care of her. Her standard of living will greatly improve. Eleanor goes to the hospital Tuesday 7/22 for her CAT scan, then pre-op on Wed, and surgery on Thursday 7/24. We very rarely ask for donations, but we are asking now.See Spot Rescued is NOT supported by your tax dollars, we are funded entirely by our adoption fees and private donations. EVERY CENT goes to the dogs. There are no rents to pay and no salaries to pay. When you donate to SSR - YOU KNOW where the money is going - TO THE DOGS ! In 2014 SSR has paid for 10 Heartworm treatments, 3 surgeries, 4 dental procedures and numerous ER visits. SSR only buys American made grain free food for their rescues and that includes the food for the litter of puppies we just had in NC. Thus with Eleanor’s hip replacement, we do need a little help - please consider donating to her surgery, click here: http://tinyurl.com/SSRDonate And stay tuned as we update on how Eleanor is doing ! Please say a little prayer for her. WE LOVE YOU ELEANOR ROOSEVELT !!
"Some boys like pink, and why not? Pink is just a color, and so is green, and blue, and yellow. No child should be teased for what they wear," she wrote on her Facebook page.
Marketing of gender-conforming colors and toys, like blue and pink aisles in kids’ stores or the gender-specific doll and action hero options in fast food meals, can seem inescapable. But the positive response to Zoer’s campaign on social media suggests change is coming — or at the very least, that parents are becoming more aware of the issue.
