I talked to Dr. Liston’s office today and we have a date now scheduled for BHRR’s Ava Marie’s 2nd cruciate – Friday August 13th, 2010 AND we are now reaching out again to her fans/supporters to help us raise the last amount needed to pay for this 2nd cruciate repair surgery; just $1,309.25 more required as the last part of her Ava’s Action Assistance Fundraiser. Truly, even $5.00 is not too little and you can can donate by email transfer to gwen@birchhaven.org or by PayPal(account is gwen@birchhaven.org) OR you can write a check/MO or Bank Draft out to ‘Birch Haven Rescue & Rehabilitation Services’ OR to ‘Gwendilin & Sean Boers’ for her Vet Bills with BHRR’s Ava in the memo section and mail to:

Birch Haven Rescue & Rehabilitation Services
C/O Gwendilin Boers
2425 Totem Ranch Road West
RR#1 Oxford Station, Ontario
K0G 1T0

OR you can call Liston Animal Hospital at (613) 591-0966 to pay on Ava Marie’s Bill directly by Visa or M/C – Ava’s bill is under the account name of ‘Ava Boers.’ Dr. Liston was the Vet that did both BHRR’s Jaxson’s and BHRR’s Potter’s leg amputations in 2009 plus did BHRR’s Apollo’s own cruciate/menisal surgery on July 2nd, 2010.

Between fundraisers and the absolutely generous kindness of her Action “Angels”; $4,690.75 has been raised to date to help BHRR’s Ava Marie get the 2 surgeries she has needed plus rehab to then be placed up for adoption to give her that chance of having a forever loving home to call her own.  Her first cruciate surgery was on May 21st, 2010 AND we are so close to being able to pay for her 2nd surgery now scheduled for Friday August 13th, 2010 and I am just pleading with all my soul for her adoring public to open up their hearts to consider donating a few monies her way to help us help her. To everyone that has met her at our BHRR “EXPERIENCE” Mini Open Houses, to those that have met her on our GD Walk/Hike events to those that have met her at Fundraisers; to those that have not yet had the delight in meeting her yet have fallen under her spell in seeing her pictures and have read her blogs as she has not only triumphed in losing almost 40 pounds yet has recovered from one of her cruciate surgeries with strength plus will power to overcome her injuries; to please please please consider donating to her cause. In turn, I know that BHRR’s Ava Marie would thank you with the best in person or even virtual leans and kisses for though she cannot use her words; I see in her eyes; how much better she feels and happier she is, how much better she can move and she is so touched by the warmth extended her way.

We have until end of day on Friday August 13th, 2010 to raise these funds for BHRR’s Ava Marie and I have been asking for any extra shifts I can at KAH to help reach this goal. Truly, thank you ALL in advance for your consideration of BHRR Ava Marie.
