PLEASE help Lilly!

Lilly is currently under the care of Houston Pug Hearts Houston Pug Rescue.  She has huge tumore cells all over.  Poor thing.  I am filled with sadness and chills through my body every time I look at these pictures.  They need $2000 for her treatment and only have received $65 of contribution as of today.  Please visit and help Lilly!  (SERIOUSLY, EVERYTIME I LOOK AT THESE PICTURES, I GET CHILLS AND ALL MY THE HAIR ON MY BODY STAND UP…I can’t help but wonder how this could of happen to this sweet Pug and we all can help by chipping in whatever we can).

PS – We just learned that this was caused by neglect of her previous owner and she has stage 1 cancer.  It’s not terminal at this point so please chip in.  Every dollar will help!  Thank you and Pug kisses.

Here’s a PugCam of Lilly.

    That is the most terrible thing I have ever seen.

    POOR PUGGY! I have no money at present. Sigh. I wish I could help her, but I literally have nothing because of the move until pay day!!!

    Did the tumors multiply that fast??? How did this happen?!

    Well, I just posted a huge message on the Calgary and Vancouver Pug Meetup Message Boards, so hopefully that will generate some funds! The donations are up to $540, so at least they are on the rise. I can’t even stand it though, I am going to donate on Wed. when I get paid. It’s just too horrible not to try to save her life.

    This is just horrible. There was a french bulldog, Churchill who was neglected and suffered the same illness, ufortunately for him it was too late. But I am glad Lily was brought in before it got to the next stage.

    We will help, it may be small, but it’s something.

    Thank you for posting this. I am glad to be able to help out financially. I will be praying for this little sweetheart to make it through her surgery and have no cancer recur. What a little angel. I am so glad you all were able to rescue her. Thank you for the sacrifices you have made for her. How could anyone let an animal go through this? There should be criminal repercussions for such neglect.

    This is giving me chills, too. I have goosebumps all over my body.

    I’ve posted about Lilly on Suki’s blog and we gave a donation, too. I really hope we can help.

    Hi all, I just emailed an update to Jin, but I just had to come over here and thank you all personally. What wonderful people we have around the nation.

    Lilly is not doing so good at the moment, she is running a fever (104) and refused to eat again. At the moment we have her wrapped with ice packs and sitting under the ceiling fan with the AC running. Earlier we tried syringe feeding her, but she clamped her mouth shut and flopped on the counter as if she was giving up – and we do not allow that. Lilly is a fighter, we know that, she is just feeling so weak at the moment due to lack of nutrients. As such we have made an appointment to take her to the clinic in the morning to have a feeding tube inserted so we can get food and water inside her without forcing her to eat.

    We have lots of experience with this sort of thing, Robbi was a nurse before she went to NASA, and we both helped Alfie fight through to the end. We are not going to give up on Lilly when we know that if we can get some nourishment inside her it will make all the difference.

    We will keep you updated, and I am working on the site at the moment with a view to uploading an update in the morning.

    On a side note, Sally – the other Pug who’s little daughter Missy died last week – is not doing so well either. She is not at the stage where we need to give blood, but her levels are dangerously low. We are awaiting and update from the pathology lab on the samples from Missy – hopefully we will get some answers and be able to deal with Sally’s ailment head on.

    Thank you all once again!


    P.S> Keep an eye on the webcam at Hopefully if lilly feels a little better we can pursuade her to make an appearance.
