Help Stop Bubba’s Pain


Donate for TECA-BO surgery for Bubba

UPDATE!! Great news!! Bubba has been accepted into the CSU program!! We will keep you updated with details as we get them! Yay Bubba! Bubba is a wonderful and sweet pit bull mix who needs a special surgery. He was left with untreated chronic ear infections for so long, his body started fighting back through growths in his ears that essentially look like cauliflower. This condition is very painful for him leaving him constantly shaking his head, rubbing his ears on the ground, and constant scratching. Bubba needs his ear canals removed which is an extensive surgery that typically costs around $4000. We are hoping to get him accepted into CSU for TECA-BO surgery at a reduced rate of what we hope will be around $2000. The CAWL board has voted to help this sweet dog but we are desperately in need of donations to help cover these costs. Please consider helping this wonderful companion who has been left to suffer for so long.

Remembering Naiad

NaiadThe volunteers at CAWL are very sad to report that our senior potcake Naiad (aka Morgan Freeman) has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Naiad was a potcake dog brought to CAWL from the Humane Society of the Grand Bahama. Naiad was a shelter favorite and loved living in Colorado. According to the volunteers at HSGB, Naiad was fished out of a canal by HSGB staff in Sept 2009.  No one ever came looking for him.  They estimated the gorgeous labrador mix to be about 8 yrs old but claimed he had plenty of life in him yet!  He was never a minute’s problem at the shelter.  They likened him to a regal king; “he’s above all the rough and tumble playing but he still enjoys being in the big play groups”.  Our calm, collected, super smart, and affectionate senior potcake was adopted and lived a happy Colorado life with his new family, the Reynolds. He will be greatly missed by CAWL.Naiad and True Thank you True for fostering him and finding him such an amazing home and family to finish his life.

Thank you to the Humane Society of Grand Bahama, Operation Puppy Lift and The Kohn Foundation for continuing to care and raise awareness for the plight of the potcakes.
