13 Year Old Jagger's Give to the Max Story

I was turned into a shelter at 11 yrs - I don't know why because I'm a happy, friendly Sheltie boy. I was a little chubby (o.k. f-a-t), my teeth were horrible, and thanks to your generosity last year, I was able to have surgery for hip dysplasia. Because of living with this condition for so long, I struggle with residual pain and stiffness and am fortunate to be part of MNSR's forever foster program so that I can receive the care that I need. You can help more cute Shelties like me:

Emma's Give to the Max Story

I came from a puppy mill where my life was spent producing puppies without receiving love or proper care. I am one of the lucky ones because I was rescued, and I now live with a very nice MNSR foster family who is showing me what love is! My vet costs to get me healthy: $2474 for the basics (spay, parasite screen, vaccinations, exam, bloodwork, dental), plus diagnosis/treatment for upper respiratory infection, tummy troubles and sinusitis. Can you help MNSR help more puppy mill survivors like me to have a better life?

9 Year Old Loki's Give to the Max Story

Being a mama's boy, I was sad when my mom had to go to assisted living without me. I have Cushing's disease. My mom couldn't afford the medication so I was in rough shape when I came to MNSR. Diagnostics, rechecks and medications quickly have run into the thousands as it was also found that I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency which also requires daily medication. But look at the healthy me now! My foster family has done a fantastic job, and I reward them with LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
