Echo, rescued from a breeding mill, has been healthy for 6 years. Now, she needs emergency surgery to save her life.
UPDATE: Sadly, at 2am on September 23, 2013, Echo passed away at home with us hours before her surgery. We loved her very much, and will continue the fundraiser to pay for remaining vet bills and cremation of her body.
Echo started life at a puppy mill as a breeder. She lived there for 3 years until being turned into a shelter and adopted. Another happy 3 years went by, until her owner was no longer able to care for her, and she went back to the shelter.
A local rescue, Mini Mighty Mutts, took her in, sending her to foster with us. From the moment we first saw her we knew she wasn’t a foster, she was ours.

Three happy years went by, until her owner was no longer able to care for her, and she went back into ashelter. A local rescue, Mini Mighty Mutts, took her in, sending her to foster with us, Nina and Dianne. From the moment we first saw her we knew she wasn’t a foster, she was ours.
On September 6, 2013 we took Echo to the vet because her body had suddenly swelled with fluids. After several tests there was a tentative diagnosis of liver failure. While waiting for the date of her ultrasound appointment, Echo took a turn for the worst. She suddenly could hardly stand or raise her head. She was unable to drink or eat. She was rushed to an emergency vet, and after hospitalization and an ultrasound, it was discovered she has a severe infection on her uterus. An abscess had grown on her uterus, and was dangerously infected. The vet has said if she does not have her surgery to remove that part of her uterus she would die. Sent home with medications and care instructions, we are awaiting her surgery date and giving her the best care possible to help her survive.
