Dante was found on the streets of Hancock Park in the Los Angeles area three weeks ago wandering with a female Husky. He was adopted from the shelter along with the Husky as a bonded pair. From the time he came out of the shelter he was being treated for kennel cough. The kennel cough was getting worse and the family took him to the vet, and the vet diagnosed Dante with distemper. The family had been considering euthanasia until Kind Hearts In Action and Under the Porch came forward to get Dante to a vet willing to try Dr. Sears’ distemper treatments.
Dante is now at the vet awaiting treatment, but donations are needed to pay his vet bills. Donations can be made through Paypal at the Under The Porch Web site at http://undertheporch.wordpress.com/ or through Kind Hearts In Action at http://kindheartsinaction.com/
We also need funds to pay for the creation of Dr. Sears’ serum to save dogs in Southern California.

From Karen Bond: Dante didn’t make it – he passed away in the night after the last bed check at midnite and before the 6 am rounds. He appeared to have gone in his sleep not all twisted from a siezure . The vet techs had all spend time with him petting and talking to him and trying to make him comfortable. It was just too late for him … Sorry guys, we tried … We will save the next one is what we have to hope.
