H.A.S.R.A. Needs Your Help,….

I took the liberty to swipe off of H.A.S.R.A.’s donate page, a letter from their founder and president about some of the work they do. If you love animals this is an amazing group of people who volunteer to help the four legged fur babies. Here is that letter,…


Hello, this is Debbie Rappuhn, founder and President of HASRA.
When we started this organization, we just wanted to save animals and give those that have had horrible beginnings a new, happy life. Since 2009, we have done that for more than 2600 animals!
We take animals in that are sick, hurt and need expensive surgeries and we love doing it. We want to save more and more, but we have also learned how much money this takes to continue, and we need your help to continue do this. We purchase all their vaccines, wormer, meds, food, toys, beds and you help us with your wonderful donations, which we (and they!) appreciate very much.
We need you to share our page and tell everyone about what we do and ask them if they would like to be a part of the HASRA community to help us save more and more. We appreciate all of you that are already HASRA angels!

They say in business that word of mouth is the best advertisement. I believe this to be true. Now with facebook and other social media outlets we can spread the word faster than ever before. H.A.S.R.A. needs your help with medicines, vaccines and vet bills so they can continue to save animals. Go visit General Medical Fund and donate if you can. Feel free to share their website and or this blog post. And be sure to click the other links on their webpage and learn what they do. Below are some of the animals they have to deal with. SPAY AND NUETER is the answer. These animals are sad. H.A.S.R.A. does need your help. Spread the word.

Adira Faith (Strong Faith)
Found wandering the streets near as local manufacturing facility, starved, and freezing cold. Obvious signs of being used as a puppy factory. In need of emergency medical attention, and assessment. Heartworm test needed, vaccines, spay, wormer.

Diamond was a confiscation case. She came from horrific conditions where she had been chained to a tree for who knows how long, with no food, no water and no shelter. She has obvious signs of being a breeding dog, and who knows how many litters she was forced to have. A concerned citizen called the county animal control officer, who promptly confiscated Diamond and brought her to the Florence-Lauderdale Animal Shelter, in Florence, Alabama. A plea to get her out of the shelter and into a loving foster home was quickly answered by a shelter volunteer Kim Bergeron Price.

Left to fend for himself, Hancock was found nearly starved to death, fighting off an infection in his eye, full of worms and later found to be heartworm positive. With little chance to survive the harshness of the shelter, one of our great foster mom’s stepped in and saved his life by tasking him home. He is on his way to better health and will begin heartworm treatments once he is stable enough to do so

When his owner passed away, Hero was found in bad condition. Severe case of sarcoptic mange, cataracts, and heartworm positive. The shelter had to make a decision by the end of the day on what to do. Luckily, a foster family stepped up and took him out of the shelter. When the mange is under control, he will begin heartworm treatment

Pretty Girl (Angie)
Pretty girl was found roaming in the 7 points area (busy for traffic). She has a tumor about the size of a basketball on her backside, making it very difficult for her to walk, or stand. She was seen by a vet, who decided after making two deep incisions into the tumor, she shouldn’t have surgery. Hearing this, a foster decided to take her for a second opinion. The second vet took an x-ray and found that the tumor was not connected to any major organs, and was operable, but was full of infection. Once she is finished with the strong antibiotics to get the infection under control, she will have surgery to remove.
