Someone coming from Ohio story is as their dog's name and story jumps I think thirtieth up 3033 feet really well so world yes and just say what the dogs can do was pretty amazing is it says atlantis' that I wish I had actually I'm. With you there and radio family and the dates for the event our Saturday and Sunday may twentieth and 21. Taking place of the Winston-Salem fairgrounds give us a little more detail about that Caron. All the details first of all our on our website which is try and Dodd came sac town. But it's at the Winston-Salem fairgrounds and parking is free and suffered deacon boulevard. An admission is ten dollars for adults and five for ten and under. And ten to four on Saturday are the hours in on Sunday at this eleventh and twelfth floor. Very good and will make sure to repeat that information again as we get closer to the end. Our conversation here in a week in addition of community focus Telus or share information about the Sergey foundation Caron. The charity that is benefited by the try dog games. I found the Syrian foundation and I'm in 2009 maintain health companion Stanley is what their dog or cat to get emergency vet care. And so that's what this that benefits I started the event like it's a four years ago to serve fourth event. As a major fund raiser for our mission. And the reason I started a series foundation really was not just to help. Animals but. To really help their owners their with a lower income families to take good care their pats in an accident or her at a onetime illness happens and they can't pay to get out foreign object removed for example alienate a corn cob over fourth of July and they paid for the X rays and you know they make and disability or veteran and the guilt that they must feel that I went in most pet owners feel when they have to either put their dog downer pat you know passes naturally. I wanna do alleviate that guilt that would be acts financial with somebody who knew what was wrong with their Dodd and just could not help. Only because of financial reasons don't have feeling like you let your best friend out. And here and here the compassion in your voice on matters such as this. And as a former pet owner myself and for pet owners who were listening to was right here on the week in addition of community focus. Vacuum perhaps be one of the toughest decisions. That an individual may help to me and on the opposite side try to keep up with shots examinations and that can become costly. And thankfully that's where the Sergei foundation comes end. Right whether we give us financial grant or we have a lot of veterinary partners now in the trendy area that you know even if we can't assist we might be able to refer to one Hugh is. Skilled in the area that is the situation going on with the pet at that time and might feel other. I'm normally it's a combination of both you know Canada. What an owner can contribute what we can contribute and our veterinary partner you know making some discounts to make you know make it happen and it sounds like it's a lot of work when you're talking about emergency you have to work fast but all of this really does happen within that 24 hour period so Kieran token one qualify for assistance on applications are done on plane and it it. It's a quick form you can. Fill out the farm in just a few minutes. We do ASCII do attack summon the income. The documents there because that was a qualifying I don't for our emergency care is income based. And so we we look at household income if you don't have it with you when you're filling out the application and it's you know we get applications in without that all the time and then we just go a little bit. I don't essay above and beyond that will Colin that's what he'll get more information first law contacts that an owner and asked them to either facts that are bring it to the vet. Or you know well will work with them a little bit on what we need him they have but. So income is that is that the biggest thing is just not the application and can't tell you sunny times fields had he known take. Does this cost side does this cost high but you know. Pretty much it's a staff of one and in the Sergei foundation and so. First attention is going to be given to those applications that come thrilled that somebody email out they might not get the attention. Quickly as if they would fill out an application to. Surreal Stanley fill out the information first and then look to get all of the details and after exactly just to see how severe it is how fast we have to Acton and things like act. I mean we do help with general that Karen. And I and that has you know lower. A lower minimum of assistance but sometimes that can help with. Need a blood work tech you know hope and know something or help with the splint rap or something and I'm so obviously if we get any yeah our case what can handle that first but we always. Replying at least two applications within as you know same distance and you move. Karen let me ask you this which are happening have a story or two that you would want to share about the animals you have recently helped. Oh yeah sit there is I think now it's Panos so many never really know it's going to panic. To talk about. But. We often don't get hugs and for one reason or another you know and and we just had a cute little black tie. Come and that. Had. A fight with its sibling now the end. Supersede those of the wings did not look that deep Atlantic accident that it truly was. Pretty severe can move in to the point where they didn't know stopped stops us let's set and then they needed Ted. Its stay overnight this this hospital. They close at six season but the office manager in fact that's one of our time may one of our sponsors BCM hospitals it was a hospital in Raleigh. And that he stay until almost midnight just hits keep an eye and that's die Indian fluids to make sure that Atlanta. You know had the best chance of surviving for him on the other way and then I was in talk about Islam Pomeranian that. I just jumped out of its owner's arms and broke. It's. And form medic carpal bones and that's in its pole so yeah and it's Paez and you know to just jump down at a dodge specially smile died in a way it was fairly young it was under year old dean of the mounds and a farmed. So that was being recommended for specialty surgery. But we actually stepped down and we had a accessories debuted again by some of our best partners and incidents going through that surgery route because that the policy is not any way we did nothing would work. That where are trying to you I'm in this working or just weekly split changes and alignment of the bone and being a young puppies should heal okay so. You know not only do we. Yes grant money when when it calls for it. But I'm really proud of our veterinary partnerships that we have that help us to review cases and you know gets kind of second and third opinions on. Looking at what is the best route for the least amount if any of them still. Be a good. Treatment for for these animals and we're basically talking one time emergency situations correct exactly and has Syria one time accident or illness. Then I'm receiving examples I just have more accidents on. Illnesses and we see a lot of cats are I like urinary tract disease or they'll be blocked. Which is. If as a male cat has its urinary. I attacked blocks and mean it it can be a deadly situation within a matter of it's you know twelve to 24 hours if that's not corrected because or bladder fills up and. Karen do you share a few well.
