Help Dimmie

ep‧i‧lep‧sy [uncountable]
a medical condition affecting your brain, that can make you suddenly become unconscious or unable to control your movements for a short time

Have you ever encountered any one with epilepsy? Have you encountered any dog suffering from that condition? Dimmie (since renamed Zara), a two year old golden retriever, has been afflicted with this condition all her life. Her eyes would roll back and she would convulse and thrash about, sometimes even banging herself against the walls of the room. Dimmie was a one-time shelter dog at our previous location. Because of her condition, we entrusted her to a kind fosterer. Dimmie is not well again. We sent her to the vet and it cost us a whopping $2,500. Her fosterer, a cancer patient, cannot afford to pay the bill. A volunteer at Gentle Paws has kindly paid the bill first. $2,500 at one go is a huge sum for any one to afford. We are currently desperately seeking contributions to repay the volunteer. Please contact us at if you are interested in helping us out. We will provide further details, such as the scanned copy of the bill from the vet.

If we are not there for Dimmie, who will be? It is not fair why some dogs are born with such afflictions while others get to have a home, a family, love and warmth. Please help Dimmie. She is now back at the shelter with us because her fosterer can no longer cope. You can visit her at the shelter before you decide whether or not to help out. We sincerely hope you do. Thank you.
