Helping Shy

We recently learned about Shy when we were contacted by Amy from Two Pitties in the City. A sweet, courageous, emaciated pit bull, Shy was brought to the animal hospital by her previous owner to be euthanized. Seeing something special in her, the veterinarian asked the owners to relinquish her instead. Shy was diagnosed with diabetes and treated; however, since she was brought in so late, she developed cataracts and lost much of her vision.

Amy and vet student Heather have shared Shy's story and opened a chipin page to raise funds for a specialized surgery to restore Shy's vision. Since then Shy has found a loving forever home and received over 70% of the funds needed for her surgery ($2000) from the generous online community!
To help Shy raise the remaining funds needed for her surgery, we have donated collars to be included with other goodies in a Raffle. Also we will be donating 20% of our proceeds in the next 2 weeks towards Shy's surgery.

So a new Sirius Republic collar, leash, and/or dog tag AND helping a sweet dog-in-need, what better time to shop?! Please enter code "funds4shy" in the Rescue Donation Code box when you check out. Or you may donate directly on Shy's chipin page (link on Two Pitties in the City). Shy girl you'll be good!!! ♥
