Fundraiser for Ella

Hello Everyone,

My foster dog Ella has had a bit of a rough go of it as of late. First she came in as a stray to the Prince George SPCA, where she was considered unadoptable due to being a senior. Fortunately the staff fell in love with her, so much so that the Manager drove her down to the Lower Mainland! She quickly had the entire Bully Buddies crew swooning over her, and was doing great until one day she got sick and had a seizure. They found that Ella has a Grade 3 heart murmur and heart that is twice the size it should be. She is now on monthly heart medications . The vets then found a softball sized tumour on her adrenal gland. On Thursday May 8th she will be heading into the specialists at Can-West vet clinic, for further diagnosis, and to look at surgery possibilities for the tumour.
To date her vet bills have totaled $845.38 The Can-West bills are expected to total at least $300, with surgery costs to follow.
Ella is an amazing dog. When she gets through all of this we are hoping to get her registered as a Therapy Dog because she has a wonderful, gentle temperament. People are just drawn to her where-ever she goes. She has become our official PR dog at local events, and recently won-over the crowd at the SPCA Open House.
We are holding a raffle fundraiser for Miss Ella, in order to help cover all of her health needs. Tickets are 1 ticket for $2 or 3 tickets for $5!Two amazing baskets are available- one for humans, the other for your beloved canines. Tickets can be bought online through Paypal (, or via cash, cheque or credit card.Draw will take place May 31, 2008.
Thank-you for supporting Ella and Bully Buddies!
