HELP SAVE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
Partake in Leah’s Hope.

August 31, 2014 — Rescued six-year-old, White Shepherd (Leah), whose harsh
beginnings in life were less than humane, now survives with the aid of antibiotics
and painkillers, until crowdfunding efforts help enable a life saving surgery.

blue moon 004Diagnosed via x-ray and ultrasound with an infected kidney that’s no longer functioning, veterinary specialists from the eastern Santa Rosa based Petcare Emergency Hospital speculate that the root cause of infection lies within Leah’s
pelvic region; where a mysterious mass (possibly cancerous) is pending further examination.

While the removal of Leah’s left kidney is imminent, to help prevent the spread of
infection, exploratory surgery of Leah’s pelvic region also necessitates a biopsy; a
complex procedure based on where the potentially cancerous mass is embedded.

Crowdfunding efforts via Indiegogo (IGG) are in effect and will continue through11:59pm on September 7th. Since the campaign launch (in late August), the Leah’s Hope campaign has reached a global audience through various social media platforms, and has received donor support from sources in Northern California and Hawaii.

Over a two week period, diagnostic cost and treatment has reached $2,000. With the impending cost of surgery and recovery, medical expenses are expected to quadruple; hence the IGG campaign goal of $10,000.

All contributions toward Leah’s Hope have a direct impact on prolonging Leah’s life; therefore campaign leaders encourage the public to help in securing Leah’s future as a healthy, happy, member of Sonoma’s thriving canine community.

LEAH’S HOPE. INDIEGOGO CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN.



LEAH’S HOPE. INDIEGOGO CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN.

With a heavy heart, we bring you word that our MinaPRESS canine companion — six year old Leah — is in need of an operation. In recent days, Leah was diagnosed with an infected kidney (cause still unknown) which needs to be removed before the infection spreads. A rescued soul, whose early beginnings in life were far from humane, Leah now survives with the assistance of antibiotics and pain killers until the necessary means are acquired to cover the cost of surgery. Fundraising efforts are in motion and here’s how you can help:

IGG Logo

Thoughtful gifts (perks) have been carefully selected for each denomination/pledge amount: $5 (Leah’s paw print), $25 (framed hi-resolution photo), $50 (Leah’s Hope charm bracelet), $100 (Leah’s Hope Chest/keepsake box), $500 (handmade Princess Leah tiara), or $1000 (canvas print).

Please note that the more you donate, the more perks you receive; i.e. by donating $100, you’ll receive the $100 perk, along with each perk of smaller denomination.

On behalf of our girl, we thank you in advance for your interest in Leah’s Hope.

May Leah’s life-force be with you.
