Raffles to Help Elvis

On May 2, Looziana Basset Rescue took in a very sick basset boy named Elvis.  He was an owner give up and came into rescue with horribly infected ears and prominent lesions all over his body.  His neglect was the worst that I have seen in years.  He is currently in ICU and treatment has begun. Because of the high cost of ICU, we are trying to raise money for his hospital bill and treatment.  The lesions will be biopsied in order to determine their origin. 

Each raffle ticket is $10.  We will know how many raffle tickets you want by the number of tickets you buy.

The drawing for each raffle item will be on Monday, May 19 at 5pm CST.  The winner will be responsible for the cost of the shipping.  Click on the titles below, to view the item on FirstGiving.com and make a donation for raffle tickets.
