Our christmas tree

The Animal Doctor made it! He finished putting up our tree just at the stroke of midnight on December 1st. Ohhh, it definitely smells like Christmas in our house now.

Secretary's note: I cannot believe how far we've gone with the fund raising. I am glad that I listened to Teri ( our LLL contact) not to give up. As of this posting, Scarlet's Wheelchair Fund is almost complete. Eddie's Wheels will likely begin constructing it as soon as we finalize Scarlet's measurements.

Scarlet and I will now focus on raising a few more hundreds to cover the cost of shipping her wheelchair to the Philippines. Sad to say, shipping and insurance charges are expected to be higher due to our locations and the size and weight of the shipment.

To all our friends and supporters who are responsible for this on going miracle, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Some of our donors were able to sponsor 1 female dog, 2 female cats and 2 male cats for free spay and neuter. We have activities lined up to pay forward your kindness and we will be telling you about these in our future posts.


  1. Hello Scarlet!
    You look so happy under that lovely tree!

    Dear Secretary,
    How much is the cost of shipping? If you would like, you may send the wheelies to FRS ( Fast Reliable Service) in NY,then they will arrange the shipping here in Manila. That's what we usually use when we buy stuff online ( US websites) , its kind of like Johnny Air. It makes us save a lot on shipping cost. FRS office is located in QC. You may email me if you are interested :)

    Hugs to Scarlet,

    Mrs. D

  2. Thanks for the tip, Ms. D. I wonder if FRS is cheaper than LBC? The original plan is for the wheels to be shipped to my bestfriend in California who will then ship to us via sea. This is probably the only way I could afford it, but it will take one or two months for the wheels to reach us. If we are able to raise additional funds, there is a good chance that we can ship via air. I might be able to get a closer estimate next week. Will let you know. :)

  3. Merry Christmas Scarlet from Lancaster!

  4. Blessings my Sweet doggy friend!

  7. Hi, Scarlet!
    Your tree is beautiful!
    I love to see your happy face!
    I can't wait to see you on your wheelies!
    Kisses and hugs

  8. Oh - you probably need me email! Hee! It's: hannah.musictherapist @ gmail . com

  9. Scarlett, I am kinda, half-way in love with your sister Truuuuudis, but I think I may be falling for you too! You are just precious! I just read about your wheelie and my girl wants to know if you still need/are accepting contributions. She tried to email you at the address on your blog, but it didn't go through. If you could, please email her so she can talk with you about it :-)

    Give Trudis a loving lick from me, will you?


  10. What a beautiful tree! And what is that I spy at the base? An exquisite Christmas Fairy...?

    Oh, Scarlet, you are so beautiful and happy. An example to us all.

    Special love to you all at Christmas - and always. We pray for you all every night - even though God has already blessed you so richly. The Doctor and Secretary have each other - and, together, they have Scarlet, Trudis, MoyMoy and all their other furry friends. Bless you all.
