On Monday, our volunteers visited George at the vet. When he saw us, he wagged his tail furiously and his eyes finally lit up. We took him for a short stroll outside the clinic, which he enjoyed so much that he refused to go back into the clinic. We had to carry him back in when it was time to return! Poor George; strays usually cherish their freedom, and are not used to being cooped up.

George's tick fever medication is very important. It must be fed to him orally 3 times a day for 8 days. Like antibiotics, if they are not administered on time, they will be ineffective and George might die from his sickness. However, at the kennels, there is nobody to feed George his medicine. We can only feed him after work, and that is not enough at all. His medication also needs to be refrigerated, and there is no refrigerator at the boarding kennels.
We urgently appeal for a kind soul to just foster George for 8 days, to feed him his medicine 3 times a day. George is a really sweet dog and won't be much trouble. It is a very short period of time and it will mean the difference between life and death. Will you help us save a life?
