A Sibe in need

Meet Shana, a sweet 2 yr.old little girl that came into South Florida Siberian Husky Rescue after being found wandering the streets of Hialeah. In her short life she became this adorable little girl who only wanted to be loved. She is being fostered by a family that fell in love with her gentle spirit and capacity for giving back to people and other dogs. Today we found out Shana has ITP which is an Auto Immune Disease which can cause her to bleed internally by the slightest bump or turn of her head. Her foster family brought her to the vet when they noted her lethargy and the alarming color of her urine..

This disease causes the body to attack the platelets, thus causing a lack of clotting. Today she received her first transfusion from one of her husky friends, and in three days we will know how much that has helped; however, she may need more.

Her treatment is quite costly, and when they get the bleeding under control, she will need to be on steroids in order to keep this problem from recurring. She will require constant monitoring and possibly occasional transfusions to enable this girl to live a full and happy life.

We want to give Shana the chance she deserves to live that full life, but our funds our low and find that we must turn to you, our friends to help keep Shana alive. We ask with heavy hearts that you help us find a way to help Shana fulfill her desire to give love to a special family when shes well.

If you'd like to donate to them, here is the link.

What a heart breaking tale this is... our dear Benson is on a similar path right now... expensive meds and treatments to keep him healthy and alive and fighting his disease. We are sending prayers and crossed paws for this sweet girl...
