Matching Gift Challenge for the
Straydog Veterinary Expense Fund
So far (at 6 p.m. 5/20/13) the running tally from Matching Contributors is:
$18,920 (toward the now $29,187 Challenge pledges from the Angel Donor Sponsors)
We have paid Morton Small Animal Clinic the balance owed and our BALANCE is now (at 6 p.m. 5/20/13) ZERO!
$29,589 has been paid to Morton Vet Clinic, Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center and Athens Vet Clinic. For a short time our balances at Morton Clinic and the DVSC have been zero, but the Morton balance will begin rising again immediately as we, of course, continue to have to take dogs to see the vet! (See our Financial Status Page, which was updated Monday Evening, 5.20.13.)

Matching Gift Pledges TOTAL: $29,187
(which total includes a special pledge for Spice's knee surgery, which has successfully been completed [May1, 2013], and two months supply of Comfortis Flea Prevention for all our dogs, which has been secured)
Straydog needs Matching Contributors to
meet the Challenge of our Angel Donor Sponsors! We are asking
for your partnership in sending or calling in a matching gift,
in any amount, to help us double the already pledged $29,187,
by June 2, 2013. It is expensive to care for 130 dogs! Because
of your generosity, we will be able to replenish and raise the
balance in the Straydog Veterinary Expense Fund to cover our vet
care for the next several months--new arrival checkups, regular
vet visits, emergencies, surgeries, heartworm treatments, medicines
and more. (Please check our website to see the ongoing totals
raised during this Challenge!) Remember, your gift can be sent
in honor or in memory of a loved one, and a special card will
be sent to the honoree or the family of the honoree, letting them
know of the wonderful impact of your matching gift. (Please include
names and addresses so we can send out a card.)
Thank you so very much!
Please note on your donation that
it is toward this Matching Gift Challenge for Straydog's
Veterinary Expense Fund.
You can send or call in a donation direct to:
MORTON SMALL ANIMAL CLINIC
P.O. Box 1356
Athens, TX 75751

donations through PayPal at Straydog.org
Our deepest thanks from everyone at Straydog!!
A sad note from Juana:
has crossed the Rainbow Bridge (5/17/13)
(with our help, including the vet's). As we've been reporting
for quite a while, Champ has been in pain, but with his prescribed
meds he has been able to stand it until the past few days. Today
he gave up completely and couldn't take it any longer. Champ was
one of Ms. Pat's rescues in the year 2000. ... He and Trixie spend
many wonderful years together at Straydog. ... Rest in peace our
champion Champ boy!
Dr. Terry examines Champ and then puts her face on his side as she says goodbye to him. Then Juana says her last goodbye to Champ.
In August of 2000 Champ was rescued, and Pat Arnold took him in at Straydog. She soon tried him to be a kennel mate with Trixie, the toughest dog in our shelter at the time. They loved each other from their first meeting and were wonderful companions for the next 10 years, and "no one's gonna take that time away," as James Taylor says in a song.

THE WEEKEND of
Wildflower Festival 2013!
This is Straydog's third year in attendance with a booth at the
Wildflower Festival in Richardson TX.
Linda reports: It's been hot and windy. We had to tape everything down. We've had a fun time and met a lot of great people. Spay and Neuter has been our theme. Straydog Supporter Jim Buchanan (who donated all the new booth materials for our event booth, including the black table cloth) stopped by and gave a big contribution to our shelter and wants to help us in many, many ways!
There is a great amount of outdoor fun: Music (many bands and singer/songwriters), Art and Good Food!
The weather promises to be cooperative!
Come visit our Straydog Booth!

SEARCH ENGINE for Straydog.org
A Note from Bill: I accidentally deleted our Straydog search engine a few weeks ago, and I don't know enough about computers, the internet or the html programs I'm using to reinstall it and make it work again. So I just tried to Google: "Straydog.org Lisa-Lisa" and it worked, bringing up many, many pages on our website that include Lisa . So I guess we don't need our own Straydog search engine. Just Google: Straydog.org followed by the name of any of our dogs.
