A Quick Update on Trooper

Trooper is still in good spirits, eating and drinking lots. Both Gwen and Trooper will be leaving Deer Lake airport tomorrow, Sunday February 19th, at 1:30pm. We would like to give a big thanks to Frances Drover of the Corner Brooke SPCA who arranged Gwen's flight and applied all the donated air miles.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who has supported us throughout it all, none of this would be possible without you. We apologize if we forget to mention anyone in our thanks, and wish we could thank each and every person individually. We've all been a bit like chickens with our heads cut off lately.

You may have noticed that we have increased our ChipIn goal to $9000. When we originally set the goal we were in the dark about what treatment would be required. We are still unaware of an exact amount, but the costs are climbing and we have to consider his on going costs as well. It's amazing to see just how much has been donated already and we can't thank you enough! We have received some news that the ChipIn account has been failing at times. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It seems that if you continually try it will eventually work, however please see previous posts to find other ways to donate if you are having trouble.

A new facebook group has been started just for Trooper where you can find more pictures and a new video, you can find it by following the link: Troopers for Trooper.

We will be back with an update as soon as we know more!
