I haven’t posted in a long time, I know.  But for those who happen to stumble upon this ruined relic of a blog I wanted to post a link to the giving page we have started to help in our attempts to adopt an Eastern European orphan.  Any amount you can give helps- even $5 or $10 dollars.

An Auction for Kane…

One other thing that Special Needs Dobermans does- aside from raising tax deductible donations- is special auctions on Ebay to raise funds for individual dogs.  I got some good news that Kane’s first auction is up.  Swing by and check it out and see what you think.  Our family really has been blessed to come into contact with S.N.D. (Special Needs Dobermans).

Auction for Kane

The Special Needs Dobermans charity was kind enough to approve Kane for assistance with his medical bills.  This means that he is eligible to recieve tax deductible donations.

Special Needs Dobermans is a nonprofit 501(3)(c) corporation. We are able to help Dobermans and their families thanks to the generosity of people like you. Your donation to SND is tax deductible. All money donated on behalf of the Dobermans, every cent, goes towards their care. – Special Needs Dobermans

100% of the money you donate at the link below goes directly to Kane.  Even if you don’t want to or can’t donate, swign by the link below anyway to check out Kane’s special page. 

Special Needs Dobermans: Support Kane

Well since I don’t have much time to type, I have some petting and walking and bladder expressing to do, here is a bit are some pictures of the Kane man after he got home. BTW, if you think you can help us pay for Kane’s surgery click on this link to find out more about how to give.  Even if you can only give $5 or $10 it will mean a lot.  We have already raised over $500 to go toward his medical costs- that means we’ve raised about 15% of the cost of his care and surgery.  I would love to make it to $1,000.

Perhaps I should show you his little corner.  Doctor’s orders, he has to be kept in a small area to minimize movement.

Here is another view… (more…)

THANK YOU ALL!  Because of your kindness and generosity we are half way to our goal of raising $1,000 to help with the costs of Kane’s $4,000 treatment and surgery.  If you want to help us make it all the way to our goal (and possibly beyond) just click here for more information on how to help out.  We appreciate all that you guys and gals have done.  It is amazing watching the blogging community come together for our boy Kane.

Also, it is only a few more days until Kane comes home. (more…)

That is Kane, the black and tan one in the background hamming it up.

Surgery is complete.  Is wasn’t perfect since he did have some spinal degeneration and fusing consistent with his age.  However, the vet was able to remove the flap of bone that was causing his spinal cord to bulge.  His spinal cord is now running straight as an arrow.

Now we are waiting to see if he can fell pain tomorrow.  Even better if he can move his legs tomorrow.  I will take a trip into town tomorrow to meet with his neurologist and of course visit the billing department.  I hate to say this again, but since this wasn’t cheap, if you feel you can afford to help and feel led that way we sure could use the assistance.  We would love to get together about $1,000 from donations if possible. We are also looking into grants and charitable organizations, but have found nothing thus far that will work.

Please keep praying about those grants and also pray that Kane will not only feel pain tomorrow but that he shows signs of movement and control in his hind limbs.  Thanks to everyone!

I just got off the phone with the head neurologist.  The news is mostly good.  Kane will need surgery.  His chances of a significant recovery after surgery are 80-90%.  However, he has apparently had this disc problem for a while so there is some kind of significant build up around it that could cause some complications with the surgery- making it harder to remove.  Please pray that Kane’s surgery is successful and if you can help us with the cost of Kane’s surgery please click here to see how and where to donate to Kane’s surgery fund.  Thank you all for your continued support and encouragement.  We are almost out of the woods.  We will know more in about six hours.
