October Update: Donations Needed

For the Love fo aLex October newsletterHello Angels! We are beyond grateful for all of the recent donations and positive comments and reviews. Over the past 5 months we’ve helped 53 pets. Thank you for helping to save lives and keep families together. Unfortunately, we cannot take on anymore cases until we make up the funds spent on these 53 animals, including their ongoing care. Donations are needed to keep us going.

The Pets You’re Helping

We have 53 open cases. Here a few of them.

Angel the dog For the Love of Alex Angel is almost completely done with treatments. It’s been a long road, but thanks to your support she is receiving the help she needs for her odd case of puppy strangles. For the Love of Alex still must raise approximately $500 toward her care.

Chess the cat For the Love of AlexChess, short for Cheshire, is happy and healthy since his operation for a urinary blockage. If you are concerned about your cat’s urinary health, check out this educational website, and always consult a veterinarian you trust. For the Love of Alex still must raise $2,800 toward his care.

Maui the dog. For the Love of Alex Maui has had a truly remarkable recovery after his major surgery. As a dog with numerous vascular abnormalities, we expect he may need future care, but for now he is happy and healthy. For the Love of Alex must still raise $4,500 toward his care.

Finnain the cat For the love of Alex Finnian had rough summer, in and out of veterinary hospitals, but he is great now! After many tests he was determined to have a rare cryptococcosis fungal disease. With treatment, he is thriving and his owner is smiling! So are his dog brothers. For the Love of Alex must still raise $1,900 toward his care.

Donations Needed Desperately

On September 7th we announced, via Facebook, that we would be shutting down our application for support until we raised $70,000, and I issued a challenge of raising $10,000 a week to be able to reopen by the end of October. (See original post here: http://bit.ly/2PLHObT) As of right now we are not making our goal and still need to raise $48,000. Your help is needed more than ever right now!

How to “Walk for Alex”

  1. Download the Walk for A Dog app to your smart phone.
  2. Create an account.
  3. Choose your charity to support. Find “For the Love of Alex Inc” under Pennsylvania.
  4. Every time you go for a walk, with or without your dog, open the app and select “start walking.”
  5. The app will track your walking distance. You can even open other apps while you walk, like Pokemon Go.
  6. For the Love of Alex will get a donation based on our number of walkers and the miles you’ve collected.

You can even add Alex as one of you “dogs” on the app, to see his picture and remember why you’re doing this in the first place.
