It's TIME! The Olympics are starting! You guys all know how proud I am to be part of a totally PAWSOME group like Legacy Boxer Rescue. It's because of them that I'm the handsome, happy guy you all know and love. They saved my life, plus hundreds of other boxers. This year we're planning a super-fun Facebook event to coincide with the Olympics. We're going to be hosting an array of boxer-themed Olympic events like mouth jousting, boxer burns, and of course BOXING! Every day during the Olympics, LBR will share an album with pictures of LBR alums (and other boxers) competing in the day's event. The picture with the most LIKES by the end of the day will win the gold! There are pawsome prizes for gold, silver, and bronze in each event.
In addition, LBR will be asking for donations for three very special future Olympians.
This beauty came to us with a badly broken front leg after being thrown, or having jumped, from a 30' Bridge in Fort Worth. She had her surgery to repair her leg on Thursday, July 26th and is recovering nicely. Estimated cost $3,000.00. In addition, Brielle has some Mast Cell Tumors to be removed and she is also Heartworm positive. Basically, she's a little train wreck that we will whip into Olympian shape in no time at all.
Melody was just diagnosed with a torn cruciate ligament and will have her surgery on Monday, August 6th to repair it. Estimated cost is $2,000.00.
Napoli has hydrocephalus and will be seeing a neurosurgeon next Wednesday to discuss treatment. To diagnose and fix the issue (using a shunt), the estimated cost is in excess of $7,000.00. Please help us give Napoli the chance she deserves to become an Olympian too! She's a fighter this one, so if we can raise the funds, we can FIX THIS!
We will have a ChipIn on Facebook (by Friday night), or you can donate as always through http://www.savetheboxers.com/donate.php via Paypal or Credit Card. We can send you our mailing address if needed for donations by check/mail.
Our goals for fundraising will be:
GOLD: $15,000.00 raised in 17 days.
SILVER: $10,000.00 raised in 17 days.
BRONZE: $5,000.00 raised in 17 days.
HELP US GO FOR THE GOLD!!!
