SHE is here!!!!! I have BHRR's Maggie May scheduled to come to KAH with me tomorrow night to just do a check-up and get an updated weight. Her ears also seem to be bothering her a bit. I shall also ask to have a referral form faxed over to Canine Water Wellness(same place that BHRR's Apollo goes to) for some additional therapy for we are still trying to open up our own pool.

She has been integrated with PPSS, Bleach, Potter(who thinks she is the next best thing EVER! LOL) and Kona to date. She is a very sweet Pyr and we are trying to make arrangements to get her groomed ASAP. I am thinking she needs to be shaved right down and our clippers here are just not going to be able to do that. If you know of any recommendations on grooming places that would be rescue friendly in the Ottawa, Kanata, Kemptville, Brockville or Kingston, please email us!

She has been settling in well. She has yet to eat or drink a thing but that is understandable. I have posted several photos in her slideshow and am adding two below from when she arrived earlier today.

Her surgical site looks AWESOME and she is still learning how to be balanced and most effective when moving and she will get there! She has a light in her eyes that speaks of being a survivor and one of determination. She oozes strength in a quiet calm manner and looking into her eyes makes it feel like in turn she is seeing into your own soul…….

You can tell that this girl has seen much and experienced more and is very world wise, very sad to say yet true…..

The vet records that came with her have given her a great bill of health beyond that right front leg(2 different Vets tried fixing the leg before it was determined that it was just too painful and far gone to be saved).

We shall be doing a 'MONEY MARATHON MOVEMENT' for Maggie May Fundraiser; whereby all monetary donations that come to BHRR over the next week will go directly to her USA bills incurred to date –

Fundraiser begins Monday June 13th @ 8:00 AM EST and shall end Monday June 20th @ 8:00 AM EST. All monies raised will be used to pay for the $400+ bill in TN, USA and then her $3,000+ bill in KY for her leg amputation. We are setting a tough high goal of $1,000 and plead to our supporters, followers, fans and believers to donate even $5.00 to her cause!  No amount is too little!

You can donate by email transfer to or by PayPal(account is 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 Maggie May in the memo section and mail to:

Maggie May was spayed, had a fecal test, was HWT(negative), had presurgical bloodwork, given her DAPP + Rabies Vaccines, treated for Ehrlichiosis and was on Doxycycline for 10 days in addition to having had her front right leg amputated. She will be put on Sentinel and proactively/preventatively dewormed. She will also be groomed as she is in dire need of a good shampoo, cut and blowdry. 🙂

She still needs to be microchipped and shall require her own Kuranda Dog Bed or Costco Dog Bed if anyone wishes to sponsor or virtual foster her.

WELCOME TO BHRR Maggie May and I cannot wait to get to take this rehab journey with you!
