Sad news

There is a rescuer in NM, Lyn, who recently rescued a liver female Dalmatian named Coco. She suffered the worst complication from spay surgery that you could possibly imagine. Both the internal and external sutures failed and her entire intestinal tract spilled out onto the kitchen floor. Lyn and her vet, Dr. Abercrombie, fought to save her but in the end it was not meant to be.

Throughout this ordeal Lyn spent over $3,500.00 out of her own pocket to try and save little Coco. As an individual rescuer, Lyn does not have any outside funding and runs Albuquerque Dalmatian Rescue out of her home. It is for this reason that we are reaching out to our friends in hopes that we can lessen her financial burden. There is no recourse from the shelter vet who spayed Coco, and Lyn will have to close her rescue until she can pay off the surgery charges. This will mean that other Dalmatians in NM will die. Lyn needs our help desparately and I hope we can help reduce Coco's vet bill.

We have created a special page on our site so you can read about Coco and her struggle.
