I sent an email to fritz's rescuer wondering how we were doing on donations, and here's the response I got:
Thank you for asking about him. The fund raising went well EXCEPT I had the wrong information on the plea that Gail from Bright Haven sent out. I have thanked nearly everyone that donated or offered him help and if someone didn't receive a thank you they may have donated to the wrong pay pal. Cindy the incorrect account was email@example.com
The Correct pay pal is ksross40@gmail. This caused a lot of frustration on my part because it was my fault and I can't thank them or tell them about this because I don't know who may have donated to this account. Please check your face book and make sure the account is firstname.lastname@example.org
If anyone donated to the wrong account the money sits for 30 days and is returned to the donor. they can also retrieve it at any time since there is no account with that email.
Gail did send out a correction but I'm not sure how many people read it because it looked similar to the first one.
Cindy you wouldn't believe the support this little guy received. I had over 6o people that donated and virtually all the funds were raised through many different people and groups, foundation etc. I worked so hard to raise the funds. Other pleas that went out were correct. I received nearly 400 emails and found him on Face book Pages in England, Canada, New York, Texas, Northern California, Southern California etc, etc..
The surgery Thursday took four hours. He had a tracheotomy, one root canal, the two holes where his canines once were patched with flaps created from his mouth, other flaps were created for the nasal holes in his mouth, his lower canine was removed and they restructured his jaw bone. Other holes that were found running below other fractured teeth were also addressed.
They also discovered a tumor under his tongue and that was cut out and will biopsied.
With the exception of the tumor all his injuries were thought to be caused by blunt force trauma to his face.
All his teeth, gum and facial wounds were the result of the trauma he suffered. Featured teeth that became infected etc.
I sincerely appreciate all the help, encouragement and donations that made this possible.
The response to him and the donations generated were amazing. I received countless emails regarding him and the compassion and attention he received was overwhelming.
So for everyone that sent money....for everyone that reposted this on their own pages or sent this on to others..... you have truly made a difference. There are no words for this besides thank you.
Although fritz has had the surgery, he's still having complications with surgery, so send some healing energy his way in your thoughts.......he deserves all the kindness and pain free life that he can get!! [= thank you again....from the bottom of my heart.
