Small World/Small Souls - A Brave Dog in Need
How the day started -
I got a message from Mrs. Keenan this morning early (Blogorado's FarmMom) that there'd been a fire at a friend's apartment complex last night in Alabama and his neighbor not only lost everything he owned, his neighbor's dog was hurt, taking out the sliding glass door when the flames reached him and jumping off the third floor away from the fire, to jump to the only person he recognized.
That person was Gunsmith Joe.
Joe called Old NFO on the phone this morning - and we're trying to get the word out.
Joe has set up a Go Fund Me, to help with the dog's vet expenses - he's got some cuts, some burns and a couple broken bones, but he is stable at AMC Emergency & Specialty Center and hopefull will recover with proper care. He is all that this poor man has left, everything else burned, the other units suffering only smoke damage or no damage at all. Here's the info and the link to go fund me.
The goal is enough to cover the vet bill and perhaps leave a little extra over to help his owner Chris, further, as he literally has the clothes on his back left. I googled it (it was in the Birmingham area) and saw the news story about the dog as well, he is one lucky pup,
You can also Paypal to oscarvine@gmail dot com to donate, and if you use the friends and family option there's no PayPal fee. FarmMom knows and trusts the source of this info related to the PayPal Account.
Or you can go to the GoFundMe: gofundme.com/phtv8nhc
Thanks for sharing and caring. Old NFO will have updates.
