ResQte Of The Week: Help Bring Kaly To Canada

“I thought I would send you a picture of puppy Kaly. I met her when she was 3 weeks old in India. I had to come back to Canada but I am raising money to try and save her,” writes Jade L.

“When I first met Kaly, she was sleeping at the bottom of a heap of 3 week old strays on the beach. She was much smaller than the other pups and very sick with an infection that left her blind in one eye.”

“I carried her to Animal Rescue nearby and they gave me antibiotics and eye drops which I gave her every day. Two days later her swollen eye had gone down to half the size, 4 days later she was standing on her wobbly legs and taking her first steps, and 6 days later she was healthy and playful. In this time I completely fell in love with her.”

“After some early research, I found out that puppies need to be 4 months old to fly and when I left Kaly she was only 6 weeks. I had to leave India but I am determined to bring Kaly to Canada so I can look after her.”

“Monsoon season is in May and it’s very hard on the dogs. Both animal rescue and a vet in Mumbai have agreed enthusiastically to help me bring Kaly home but I need your help!”

We’ve raised $1090 of our $4000 goal. It’s for a pet travel company I have hired to send her, and vet bills in India to give her vaccinations and care for her until she comes!”

“Thanks so much for taking the time to gaze into her tiny face.” [*Note: New FB page here. -Ed.]

    The post here states 2000$ as the goal while the gofundme site lists 4000$ as a goal. (The description says 3000$~4000$ will be needed)

    Just thought I’d let you guys know to avoid unnecessary confusion. 🐱

    I’m separated from 6 of my gorgeous kitties right now, for a few more months, and it’s beyond painful. Had to donate to help this pupster get home.

  3. What a sweetie!

  4. @yorekani: 2K was the figure quoted in the email- updating now!

  5. Blind in one eye means only one thing .. This little guy will hear that cheese wrapper 750 miles away vs. the normal 500 miles.

    Hope he gets to ‘come home’ soon .. looks like he might be

  6. I just had to donate, i noticed that of the $1,300 they have now, $1,000 of that was raised in the last 3 hours or so weee!

  7. Jade here!! To clarify the $2000 Vs. $4000 question. The weight to bring Kaly with a puppy moving company varies greatly based on weight. Since we don’t know how big Kaly will be in May when she comes I had to make the GofundMe amount be the highest it *could* be with any extra donations going to Animal rescue Centre in Goa.


  8. As an FYI to all: no name calling here. TY for your cooperation.

  9. Jade, I am really strapped for cash right now after paying rent last week but I will definitely make a donation when I get paid in a few days. I so want you and your sweet little dog to be reunited!

  10. I was cross posting to my dog Katan’s own blog and after seeing this this morning, her donations were only at $540. While writing the brief article, I am SO pleased to see that her goal of $2,075 has put her over halfway to her goal in just less than 12 hours. I absolutely amazed and know where much of that love came from. CuteOverload, I will forever hold a link to your site as a high end link from Katana, the Cane Corso, and her menagerie of brothers and sisters here at home if you will allow! Thank you so much for helping get the word out for this beautiful young woman and pup.

  11. But what about the rest of the puppies? I hope they’ll be alright… good luck to you both!

    Oh My God, KALY!!! You HAVE to go to Canada, you have to!! I’m in love w/ you. Jade, you are a wonderful person. Bless you and Kaly.

  13. Just donated. Thank you, thank you, CuteOverload for posting. I do believe it was the commited CO’ers & friends that helped push the numbers up! As of this moment, the amount is well over $2000.00 and heading to $3,000.! Jade, your puppy is amost home. :-)!
