For February Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for L.O.V.A.R. (Lifeline of Oro Valley Animal Rescue).
L.O.V.A.R. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Oro Valley, AZ striving to support those most in need. Since opening in 2014, they have successfully rescued and adopted animals considered by some to be least adoptable- including dogs that are feral, senior, sick and injured, as well as those with behavior and fear problems, hospice and mothers with litters, as well assenior and bonded pairs of cats.
Champion was Scheduled to Die for Skin Issues and Ringworm but Received a Lifeline
This boy was found extremely emaciated and infested with ringworm, he was put onto a final list to be destroyed at Maricopa County Animal Care Center. A volunteer contacted us with a plea to help. L.O.V.A.R. jumped in literally at the 11th hour to save him and he was immediately transported to Northwest Clinic where he was diagnosed with entropion, and his entire body was covered in scabs and crusts; whole body pruritis; erythema of paws, and emaciated stage. That was just the external exam. His fungal culture came back positive for ringworm.
Champion is a love and did not deserve to die for something so treatable or because of his physical appearance. LOVAR has helped cats and dogs with ringworm that would have otherwise been put down.
Please support their work and buy a Beading Divas bracelet so they can help more dogs like Champion.
