Timmy’s Fund

All That Wag began because of my desire to support a sponsor dog who suffered from leish subsequently his sister also succumbed to the disease i currently support the vet bills to test / treat these dogs.

Timmy the Rescue!

Timmy was rescued by one of these groups. There are diseases that dogs commonly get in Mediterranean countries which dogs are not exposed to in the UK. So, the rescues routinely test for Leishmaniasis and Ehrlichiosis. I am not an expert so I will give you the layman’s description. Leishmaniasis is a parasite infection caused by Sandflies. There are two types of presentation, Cutaneous (skin) reaction and visceral (abdominal organ) reaction. Even when treated, once a dog has the parasite infection, it has it for life. This means they need treatment and testing throughout their lives. The prognosis is not usually good, but some dogs can go on to live relatively normal lives. Even when symptoms are under control the dog may relapse into an acute episode at any time which can be fatal. More information can be found at http://www.leishvet.org.

All That Wag’s Charitable Donations

If a coat is ordered through a specific charity, they will receive a donation of £5 per coat. If offered through a general site, I look at the breed and donate to a charity on my list (below). I use the proceeds both to donate cash to charities as well as donating coats to be used for fundraising.

I also make and donate to individual dogs in need, primarily Timmy’s Fund. Timmy is a Spanish rescue brought over to the UK who arrived in very poor condition. He has 2 Mediterranean diseases and wasn’t able to get pet insurance as a result. As his owner has 4 other rescue dogs, I decided to support his regular blood testing and treatment by paying directly into his vets account.
