Floyd is a lucky boy.


We asked for help with Floyd's medical bills, and we could not have been more inspired by your response. We have received 26 donations to date, ranging from $10 to $300!

This has been phenomenal, not only by helping us through a precarious financial period, but by reminding us how very much you care. Your supportive words, and the time and thought behind every donation is so much appreciated by all of us who work on the front lines.

We are pretty sure Floyd knows how lucky he is, because he is a thoroughly happy boy completely in love with his new life. He has settled into foster care and has wonderful house manners (even around the grouchy cat who won't play with him). His health status overall is good, although he's fighting a nasal infection as a result of the untreated trauma to his face.

Thank you. From the bottom of our hearts, to all of Floyd's guardian angels, listed here alphabetically:

And for those of you on the island, Kim Rose is organizing a pet portrait fundraiser in Courtenay on Saturday, October 23. Bring your pet to the Van Isle Pet Hospital for a portrait session by donation, with proceeds directed to HugABull. More details on facebook and on Kim's website.

Please note that we don't have a final total on Floyd's medical expenses, but if donations surpass our bills, you can rest assured that 100% of these funds will be directed to medical care of other dogs in need.

Until our next update, a little glimpse into Floyd's idea of "bed rest"!
