Weekly News Letter Dec. 29th

Hello everyone!


We're back for another wonderful week here at the rescue, my apologies for being a little late this week. We would like to wish everyone a belated merry Christmas, and we hope you all have a fantastic new year!

I would like to start off by thanking the Santa Paws Drive for everything, this has defiantly been, hands down the best Christmas for our animals! They were so happy with all their toys and treats, and not to mention the $700 donated to the rescue, Thank you! To see pictures, video's and for more information on the Santa Paws Drive:http://elevenelevenanimalrescue.blogspot.com/2009/12/christmas-at-rescueom.html


We have a new arrival this week to the Rescue:
Alice: A wonderful little girl, she was dropped off to be euthanized two days before Christmas (can you believe it?), just because she had fleas. Well, not anymore Alice is free of fleas and ready for her new forever home. For more info or to adopt this little cutie see the web site:http://elevenelevenanimalrescue.blogspot.com/2009/12/new-arrival-alice.html


We also are in need of even more foster homes, the SPCA is overflowing, the tally as of now is: 28 Rabbits, 13 Hamsters, 1 ferret, 1 dove, 2 buggies, 6 rats and a lot of guinea pigs. there is also two Giant Schnauzers that need a foster home by this weekend, If you would like to open your home to anyone of these animals you can fill out a foster application, it would mean the world to these little angels.

Sponsor an Animal – Rocco

Justin Durrell is a familiar sight to NDG residents.
Rain or shine (or 30 below), this young man can usually be found panhandling outside the corner of Sherbrooke and Hingston.

Justin is friendly with many locals, who give him change, or bring him hot coffee on cold days. They are also familiar with Justin's two beloved dogs, Rocco and Molar, who are always by his side.

But lately residents have noticed that one of his dogs, Rocco, has been absent. Rocco recently suffered a leg injury, and Justin is desperately trying to raise money for an operation. He was playing ball and took a bad fall. He tore his ACL ligament and hurt two others - needs expensive specialized surgery to recuperate. Operation and recovery will cost about $3000. Justin has gotten off the streets and is in his own apartment, but doesn't have the money for Rocco's operation.

*His story will be featured today on CBC radio's Homerun at 4:40, 88.5 FM on the dial.a

Update Porscha

Noah Updates

Update 28th December 2009: Noahs feeding tube has been removed and he is now eating all by himself!

Update 20th December 2009: Noahs jaw fixture was finally removed! He is now starting to eat small bits of food and will be able to have his feeding tube removed soon.

Update 6th November 2009: Noah has recovered from the surgery and is now walking around, playing, exploring. However another complication has come up and it has been discovered that he has zero tear production. This could be cause by head trauma and a result of nerve damage, it may or may not be permanent. For now he needs eye lubrication at least 3 times a day. The eye ointment is expensive, and adding up when he needs it so often.

Update 2nd November 2009: Noah is now slowly starting to walk. He has been unable to until this point, it is still not sure if this is due to the head injuries or not. He continues to be fed through the feeding tube, and will not be able to eat on his own until the fixture is removed. The re-evaluation is in one month, at that point they will determine if they will have to go back into surgery or not. However they believe they will most likely have to. Therefore Noah will need constant feedings throughout the day for at least one month, if not two. For now his incision is healing well and everything is going smoothly.

Update 30th October 2009:Noah went into his first surgery with Doctor Warrak, and Interns Dr. Grenier and Dre. Bond. As explain by Dr. Warrak, “A cerclage was put to immobilize the fracture at the intermandibular symphysis. An external fixator was put to reduce the mid-mandibular fracture. It was impossible to put a cerclage because there were some mandibular fragments, and all the plates were too big for the mandible. There was a lot of fibrous tissues, indicating that the fracture was old, at least two weeks. Due to his very small size at 5 pounds, it was tricky. They had to adjust their instruments, pins and wires accordingly. The surgeons were amazed by the extent of the injuries, which means a lot when these are specialist and see this every day. The surgery nonetheless went well and Noah recovered in the ICU that night.

Update 29th October 2009: The CT scan revealed extensive jaw injuries, more than expected; Oblique mid-mandibular fracture to the right, with a fracture at inter-mandibular symphysis. Polytrauma to the head, with multiple fractures at the temporo-mandibular articulation, skull, zygomatic arch, frontal sinus, ethmoid, and nasal septum. The surgeon Dr. Warrak, explained that it was caused by “severe head trauma” comparable to being hit by a car. However Noah was stickly kept indoors in an appartment with no acess to escape. Noah will need at least two surgeries each costing 1200$. This does not include the pre-operative and post-operative intensive care needed.

Update 28th October 2009: Noah has been transferred to St. Hyacinthe to have a CT scan and be evaluated by the surgeon.

Update 27
th October 2009: A feeding tube was put into place. This tube is directly attached to his stomach as he cannot use his mouth due to the damage. Despite difficulty incubating because of the injuries and swelling the surgery went very well as he has now recovered from it.

Sponsor an Animal: Noah

Noah a young, healthy, affectionate little kitten was brought into a veterinary clinic October 26th 2009 because he had not been eating. Upon examination it became apparent that there was a good reason for Noah’s lack of appetite, his lower jaw had been severely broken.Unable to afford the 3000$+ it would cost to afford the reparative surgery; the previous owners declined further treatment leaving one option (and a much cheaper one), euthanasia. After previously being treated for a broken rib and fractured paw at only 3 months old, now 5 months old with a broken jaw.. Noah was facing the end of his short life. Thankfully that day a small girl with a big heart came to his rescue. On that faithful day Noah found his guardian angel.






Bongo Adopted!

Bongo was dumped at a clinic to be euthanized, after being dumped on the streets and picked up by Animal Control. He was finally picked up, and placed in a foster home who decided to adopt him because he is too wonderful to give up! One mans trash, another mans treasure - their loss! Bongo will now spend the rest of his life being lathered in love and affection and enjoying a country living.

New Arrival - Porscha

PORSCHA

Age: Young 
Sex: Female
Breed: Min Pin 
Size: Small

Porscha was a victim of for profit breeding – you know the face behind the cute puppy in the pet store. She grew up in a cage, un socialized, and neglected, never seeing outside, touching the ground, or even knowing what toys or play was. She was so neglected for her living situation that she was blind because of lack of tear production. Thankfully after a month of intensive eye treatments – she has now mostly regained her vision. She is now learning what life is all about, learning to walk in grass, just discovered her love for snow, figuring out what toys are, and learning how to make friends. Despite her lack of socialization she has blossomed into a social butterfly. She is pad trained, and crate trained. In fact she loves her crate! Porscha is a great pup who started life in an unfortunate situation and now just needs someone to open up their heart for her and help her continue to figure out what life is all about.

Hook has been adopted!

Hook was rescued October 22nd and adopted at the begining of December. He is just a regular young pup, full of mischief, energy and love. However Hook was born without an eye, which we think only adds to his charm. He is still figuring out how to explore the world with just one eye and often ends up bumping his head on things while goofing around. He takes everything with stride and doesn’t let this get in his way of enjoying life. He is now in a great home and enjoying life, like puppies should.
