As we enter in to the final 3 days of the '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; we are entering into a bit of a desperation mode and are truly pleading for any consideration of assistance to please come her way….

Fundraiser began 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!

Her Canadian Bills to date: $200+

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:

Here is a photo taken just 7 hours before we head to grooming. I am worried about her. I am worried about how well her strength shall hold up. She needs a nail trim as well and I do not want to stress her out any more than necessary. She is barely eating and though, I have managed to encourage her to drink water up to 3 times a day now; it is no where near at a normal level.

I go to bed around 3:30 AM each night and I am up by 8:00 AM at the latest and every moment I have is spent trying to get her up on her feet and moving forward……the dogs are being so very respectful of her space and she has been fully integrated with everyone. She is much like our 12+ year old NewfX Kona at this time. Sleeping most of her days/nights away yet it is not an easy rest, lots of panting. 🙁

Please, please, please think about donating to her cause…..she is so deserving…..I cannot wait for those attending our upcoming BHRR "EXPERIENCE" Mini Open House to meet her. I hope that she looks into your souls as deep as she has done mine and touches you immensely.

I truly am not above begging, groveling and pleading to help any animal and BHRR's Maggie May is no exception. Her Vet Bills are immense and they will only continue to grow before she is fully healthy and we are committed to her welbeing. I have picked up every extra shift I can and all monies from my most recent added Behavoural/Training Client has also been put towards her care.

Please just look into those eyes…..look deeply….please….help….us…help….her!
