The Story

Brownie's situation is URGENT!  His family, who lives in the NW section of Germantown in Philly, has to leave their home due to multiple safety issues with the home they rent.

From gas leaks, CO poisoning, mold growing in the walls, to most recently, electrocution from a door bell, the family must get out ASAP. 6ABC Video of Gas Leak and CO issue - https://www.facebook.com/pray4meok/videos/10212622503333423/

While a friend is giving the family a room to live in until they can get back on their feet, there is no room for their beloved dog, Brownie, a three-legged, 7 year old Pit Mix that they adopted from PSPCA three years ago, and the family's 2 cats, Smookie and Dory.

In his younger years, Brownie was hit by a car, which resulted in the loss of his leg and most of his teeth.

Brownie spent 2 years of his life at PSPCA, patiently waiting for a family to adopt and love him; but he always seemed to be passed over due to his disability; that is until Carol and her family saw him, fell in love and took him home.

Brownie has been living the life ever since; he is so loved by his 2 human sisters, ages 6 & 8, who love dressing him up in tutus. He also shares his home with 2 feline siblings, and his mom Carol.

We are attempting to find a temporary foster for Brownie, Smookie and Dory, but we have nothing definite yet.  Plan B is to raise funds for long-term boarding (approximately 2 months) so Brownie, Smookie and Dory can go back to their family as soon as they are in their new, safe, pet-friendly home.

Did I mention that Brownie is FAMOUS?? He was featured in a Cesar Milan episode!! https://www.facebook.com/pray4meok/videos/10212622501733383/

8/4/2017 - Smookie and Dory were seen by our vet for exams and vaccinations today.  They are ready for boarding or foster; we sure HOPE it is the latter!

8/3/2017 - A few days ago, we found out that Brownie's feline siblings, Dory and Smookie, also have no place to go when the family moves out of their current residence and to a friend's house for 2 months. Since mom never asked for help with them, we just assumed they were going with her.

Can anyone foster Dory and Smookie until their family gets back on their feet (about 2 months) and into a new home? They can go together or separate.

If foster isn't found, we are HOPING to raise enough money to board all three in the same facility near the family's home.
