WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO...

Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit  animal sanctuary located in Moses Lake, WA since 1996. We became a non profit in 2005  We rescue elderly, abused and disabled animals of all types, and WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT. Once we accept an animal it remains with us for the rest of its life. Because of they type of animals that come to us our Veterinary bills are extremely high. As we do not adopt out we have very little "income" from the animals that call us "home".  All donations should go DIRECTLY to our Veterinarians. 

SERVICES

We have received animals from owners, shelters and Veterinarians in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, Hawaii, North Carolina and even Taiwan. 

All donations are appreciated far more than you can realize - and there is no donation that is too small !!!

********IN LOVING MEMORY OF WOLFIE SHUTTLEWORTH********

********IN LOVING MEMORY OF BENNY THE FERAL BENGAL********

Benny came to us from Maui, Hawaii at the age of 16 in mid 2016. He spent the first 6 or 7 years of his life in a cage at a breeders house. He was then rescued by a Maui sanctuary, where he spent then next 10 years inside, in a room, with 2 other cats.  Benny remained feral his entire life. He had never felt the warmth of the sun on fresh grass, or laid peacefully in the grass and dirt. 

Our work

Benny was flown to us in the last days of his life.  Unlike dogs, who can be re-homed at any age, cats cannot. They will most often choose to die. Knowing this, we decided to let Benny, for the first time in his life, enjoy the summer sun and warm grass.  He would walk close to visit with us when we were outside, and he loved being with our other outdoor cats.  But his favorite spot was under the evergreen tree, where the sun shone through the branches.  Every morning while walking the dogs in the yard, Benny would sit peacefully, in the sun, watching.  His eyes were filled with awe and wonder - experiencing that which he never had before.  The outdoors. 

As the days passed Benny began to let us get closer and closer, touching his tail, then his head.  And then one day he let us pick him up. Because he was feral (wild) nobody had ever held Benny before. He had never experienced ear rubs, and gentle touches. And he purred. 

*****ANSWER THE PHONE MARIE!!!*****

Many years ago, when we were new in rescue and had llamas and alpacas of our own, we were asked if we could help trim the nails

of a llama owned by an elderly lady. After our initial meeting with Marie (Margarete) Hunter we loaded our llama chute onto the truck and headed to her home. Her llama was a large white guy who shared her back yard with her other beloved critters. 

We loaded him into the chute, which was no easy task as he had never been in one, and proceeded to get his feet back in shape, and trim some of his long wool. Marie stood with us the entire time, talking to the big man and calming him. Nobody was spit on! Once the trimming was complete Marie invited us into her house for refreshments and a snack. Marie was from Germany and had the most wonderful accent, and as it would turn out a great love of animals and a superb sense of humor.

Marie Hunter.jpg

From the living room we were able to see her large room of birds. All kinds of birds.  Parakeets, canaries,

parrots, finches - all of which were housed in immaculate cages and chirping up a storm. Moving about the

house were her beloved Pugs, each one carrying a baby pacifier in its mouth.  Once we finished our snack we moved to her living room where we sat and talked. Marie asked her dogs if they would like a snack, and that's all it took.  They lined up in front of the sofa like a small army - pacifiers still in their mouths. As Marie took a single snack and gave it to the first pup, he ate it and moved to the other end of the line. We chuckled. The next dog received its snack - and proceeded to the other end of the line. As each dog received its treat it picked up its pacifier and moved to the other end of the lineup! This continued until each pup had received two treats. 

As we sat talking the telephone rang - and from the Bird Room came the command to "ANSWER THE PHONE MARIE!". One of Marie's parrots was instructing her as to the proper procedure when the phone rang. This was the beginning of a wonderful relationship with Marie. 

***LITTLE HONDA - FOUND UNRESPONSIVE IN CAR ENGINE AT HONDA DEALERSHIP***

Little Honda came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) 2/19/24 when we were contacted by the Honda dealership in Moses Lake about a kitten they found in the engine of a car, unresponsive. We immediately took her to

Pioneer Veterinary Clinic where she received fluids, sugar solution, and AD feeding. She is in a

medical cage at our house and will be monitored closely.

***VANILLA ICE (ICY) SAVED FROM DEATH BY ANOTHER RESCUER AND TRANSFERRED TO US***

Vanilla Ice came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) 2/12/24 from Shawna Kluge and Rock Bottom Rocker Pet Pantry who was no longer able to care for his medical needs. His medical needs are extensive at this time. He is on several

medications which we have ordered from Pioneer vet and will pick up tomorrow. he will probably require

an enucleation (eye removal) of at least one, and possibly both eyes, and he will be neutered when well

enough. We have an appointment  Monday (2/19/24) with Dr. Redding at Pioneer Vet to reassess him. We

are changing his name to Icy.

***SHEILA AND YANA - OLD, DEAF AND ON THE STREETS AFTER OWNER PASSED AWAY***

UPDATE 2/15/24

Sheila and Yana have adjusted to living with us. Sheila is very matted down her entire back. Unusual for a short haired cat. We will

Be clipping the mats off little by little as she is quite old, and seems fragile. The biggest revelation is that Yana, the black kitty, is totally deaf. She seems very happy to lay in a bed below a large upstairs window but she has periods of meowing loudly as if in distress.  Once petted and ears rubbed she is happy to resume sleeping or sitting on the windowsill observing her new domain. We put a bright collar on her to help identify her as we have several black cats, and will not want her to go outside

if she comes downstairs and is interested in venturing out with the others. She would not be safe outside

as she is totally deaf and only responds to vibrations and touch.  

 

Several days ago we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were  contacted about 2 cats in an outlying town. 

Their elderly owner had passed away and the cats were put outside. No family stepped up to take them in,

and they needed to be rescued. Today (2/8/24) we traveled to the house to try to get the cats. The Siamese was there, but was very afraid. We were able to get her to come out of hiding with canned food. Although we couldn’t get her to come to us she came close enough to the food so we were able to net her. She is an old girl that needs to be inside. We have named her

Sheila. The second cat was nowhere to be seen. We headed back to Moses Lake and contacted Yana and

Kim - the expert feline trappers - and asked for their help. They not only went immediately, but Yana called to

say she was holding the black cat and would bring her to us. We named the black kitty Yana!  Both cats are

now safe from the elements, the road, and dogs. This rescue was the result of 3 rescuers (Sheila, Daze of

Camelot and Kim and Yana) working together to save animals. This is how rescue should always work. Rarely

is rescue achieved by a single person. We are blessed to work with many caring rescuers. It takes a village!!

***DEACON (D.K.) LIVING IN 103 DEGREE AND FREEZING WEATHER WITH MASSIVE MATS FOR TWO YEARS***
 

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were made aware of this dog toward the end of January 2024. We were told that he has been like this for over a year, and endured 103 degree weather last summer in this condition. Many thanks to Sheila for keeping an eye on him and keeping us updated. We asked Bonnie Helvey with ARFS to assist in getting the owner to release the dog to us. she spent several days working on it, and it is because of Bonnie that the owner agreed to let us BUY him. He will be having an initial exam at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic tomorrow (2/3/24). His vaccinations will be updated, microchipped, appointment made for neutering and an appointment for being shaved while under anesthesia. We will also run a full blood panel to check his health. We are grateful that the owner allowed his transfer to us, and we are grateful to Bonnie Helvey for stepping in and making this happen.

***WE (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) ARE THE ONLY ONES ASKING FOR DONATIONS FOR THIS CRITTER!!

 

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) took D.K. to his first Vet visit today at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. He received 3 vaccinations which will be boostered in 3 weeks, was wormed and had a full exam by Dr. Maier.  He is 3-4 years old. No

testicles were found and we won’t know until he is sedated and shaved if it is because he was previously

neutered (owner said he is not neutered) or if he is cryptorchid (testicles are inside).  They will ultrasound

him at that time. We are hoping he is neutered and won’t have to endure a cryptorchid surgery. We were

able to trim the hair away from his eyes, but that’s about it. He did very well at his appointment, was a

little afraid, but loved Dr. Maier. He is eating well at home, and is settling in. He has always been an outdoor

dog, and will remain so for now. That will probably change once he has been shaved. We are waiting to find out when his appointment for being sedated and shaved will be. We were able to trim the hair from around his eyes. And look at his smile! His new name will be Deacon, which sounds a lot like his original name.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Deacon please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794

DEACON (D.K.) UPDATE 2/6/24
If you have been following Deacon’s journey with us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) you know that we bought him from his owner 4 days ago (2/2/24) for $500. On that day his new life began! For 2 years he endured his fur being in the condition

you see in the pictures, through rain, snow and 103 degree weather. TODAY he was given an anesthesia and

shaved! His skin is in fair condition but he had a lot of cheat grass removed between his toes. THEY SHAVED

11 POUNDS OF MATS OFF OF HIM!!Although the owner said he wasn’t neutered, he is. No cryptorchid surgery

is needed! Now that the massive mats on his back are gone the scanner showed that he was not microchipped.

He is now. He is now living inside and enjoying the company of a couple of our large indoor dogs. We will leave

a coat on him long enough for him to get used to having no fur. It will grow back quickly. Labradoodles require

constant grooming. We are asking Pioneer Veterinary Clinic to look for a good home for him with one of their

clients. Someone they know and trust. He will receive his last vaccination boosters in three weeks.  The cost

for Deacon’s rescue was $1,065 ($500 to buy him from owner, $265 for shaving with anesthesia and removing

imbedded cheat grass and microchip , $150 for first set of vaccines and worming and $150 for second set in

3 weeks. This is not the first time we have paid an owner to rescue an animal - and it

probably won’t be thelast. We can only pray that the remaining years will be full of love

and caring for him.

***DEVASTATING HOUSE FIRE WHERE OWNERS DIED, BUT FIREFIGHTERS SAVED PHOENIX AND FUEGO***

In a devastating house fire January 24, 2024 near Ephrata two elderly human lives were lost. Two young large, family dogs were housed outside and were safe. Although they suffered smoke inhalation and required medical treatment a tiny Chihuahua and a very old calico cat were pulled from the fire alive. All 4 were transported to Grant CountyAnimal Outreach (GCAO).

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) are currently fostering to adopt the Chihuahua and the kitty while

Grant County Sheriff processes the incident. We have scheduled a dental and neuter for the elderly

Chihuahua for February 5,  and are administering medication to both. The old kitty’s name will be Phoenix -

as she rose from the flames. Her little whiskers are burned and curled, and she is on respiratory meds.

The little Chihuahua will be Fuego - Mexican for Fire. He is also on respiratory meds. Although they were

brought to Pioneer Vet yesterday by GCAO we are transferring yesterday’s medical records from GCAO

to Daze of Camelot. The charges for yesterday’s visit, exam and medications was $545.38.
We will be posting an update for dental and neuter fees for Fuego after his surgeries on February 5th.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Phoenix and Fuego please mail or phone a donation

***HENRY - CRYING FOR DAYS IN -4 DEGREE WEATHER***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were called 1/14/24 to rescue a feral cat that had been crying outside in -4 degree weather for several days. We were told that both eyes were glued shut. The caller was feeding the cat, and had contacted

several rescues asking for help - with no results. We showed up hoping to net the cat but it wouldn’t come

out of the bushes. At that time we did not leave a live trap but agreed to come back in the morning to trap it.

As morning came they texted to say they were able to get the cat to go into a carrier and shut the door. We

immediately left to pick it up and take it to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. We named the kitty Henry. The

examination at the Vet showed that one of Henry’s was already gone. As the eye had already disappeared it

wasn’t an emergency to clean the socket and suture the eye closed to prevent future infections. Henry was

vaccinated and has been receiving antibiotics at home until today 1/24/23 when his surgery was done.

Although semi feral when we brought him home Henry has adjusted well to being petted. Henry’s medical

costs to date are $510.25.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Henry please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 or donate here at the yellow donate button above.

***DIPPY - CAUGHT IN A FAN BELT IN WINTER WEATHER***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were contacted 1/8/24 about a cat that had been injured in the fan belt of a car.  This time of year cats will get into engines of warm cars. Many die. If Facebook blocks his injury pre surgery photo I am

posing it in comments also. Dippy is a male that is less than a year old. He will have a long recovery at our

house, but he will be one of the lucky ones to survive being caught in a fan belt. The cost for Dippy’s

emergency surgery was $1,200.

***SHYANNE, OUR SHERIFF RESCUE, NEEDED HELP***

Shyanne came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) in 2015 when we were contacted by the Grant County Sheriff’s Department to rescue a horse, several rabbits a dog (Shyanne) and our beloved pig Ruby Stubenmaier . They had been deserted in 100 degree weather in the middle of nowhere. Shyanne was feral and it took us 3 days to catch and trap her. Through the years Shyanne has remained semi feral, but eventually allowed us to pet her and tolerates our company. Over the last few days Shyanne stopped eating, lost weight, became depressed and had diarrhea, and so we took her to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic 1/15/24 where Dr. Maier ran bloodwork and X-rays to try and determine the cause of her illness. The bloodwork was unremarkable, as were the X-rays.

She was given IV fluids overnight and medications and we were able to pick her up the following day as

she had started eating. Shyanne doesn’t come running for attention as most of our dogs do, she is a

somewhat solitary soul, but she holds a very special place in our hearts. The cost for Shyanne’s veterinary

care was $366.45.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Shyanne please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 or donate

***HARLEE - 2023 CHRISTMAS RESCUE - UNKNOWN REAR END INJURIES***

Harlee Update 1/15/24
Harlee had another visit and exam at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic today. She is still very sensitive and painful in her hindquarters. A brief surgical exam showed that there is NOT a visible hernia. We will be letting her out of her medical cage at home within the next few days. She isn’t a fan of other cats, but she will have lots of room to roam and find her own space. As spring and warm weather arrives she will have the option of being an indoor/outdoor girl if she chooses. The cost for Harlee’s brief surgery and exam today was $266.40. If you would like to donate toward her recent expenses you can do so at the yellow dot above or by phoning a donation to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic at (509) 765-6794. No donation is ever too small! Thank you so much!! 

 

Harlee Update 12/30/23
X-rays  at Pioneer Vet Clinic revealed that Harlee probably received some sort of rear end trauma in the past. Several of her discs are pressed together, and the large swelling in her rear quarters and base of her tail are probably a hernia of some sort. Because she is eating, drinking, walking normally and using the litter box without an issue there will be no treatment at this time. It is possible that will change in the future, in which case surgery will be considered. We will monitor Harlee closely and pray that her condition remains stable. She is a good girl, but not much of a fan of other cats no doubt due to her discomfort. We are glad that she is part of our family now!

 

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) have done a Christmas adoption every year for the past 20 years. We always try to adopt from our local shelter, Grant County Animal Outreach (GCAO). So yesterday, 12/23/23 we asked who needed help that we could fit into our home. Harlee is a 1-2 year old unspayed female tortoise shell kitty that has a massive swelling on her tail

and hind quarters. And she is in pain. Because of this nobody has been willing to even look at her during the

two months she has been at the shelter. Well Harlee’s dreams of a home for Christmas, and forever,  just

changed. She was initially taken to the Vet where it was determined this is not an abscess. She was recently

transported to Spokane as a possible transfer, but was rejected as an examination revealed she is in need

of a major surgery. So as Pioneer Veterinary Clinic opens after Christmas we will be scheduling a full exam

with Dr. Courtney Redding to figure out a plan of action. Once we determine the type of surgery Harlee needs

we will update her condition, and ask for donations to help us help her. Meanwhile, Harlee is safe. She is loved. She is home. Merry Christmas from Harlee - and from Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary!!

***LITTLE REBA - CEREBELLAR HYPOPLASIA AND NEEDS AN EYE REMOVED***

Little Reba came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) 12/29/23 when her caregiver was not able to provide the enucleation (eye removal) that Reba will need. It appears that little Reba also suffers from mild cerebellar hypoplasia (wobbly

cat syndrome). We have lots of experience with both!!! She appears to be about 10 weeks old. Her appointment

at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Tuesday, 1/2/24. She is currently receiving AmoxiClav antibiotic, terramycin eye

ointment, and as she is eating and has no temperature she has received her first vaccine. We will update her

condition and expected surgery date next week. 

REBA.jpg

***MAMMA KITTY H...FIV POSITIVE AND EXTREME DENTAL NEEDED***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were asked a couple months ago to accept Momma Kitty as she is FIV positive and her people could not keep her as they have 2 disabled cerebellar hypoplasia cats that would be at risk. Because we have FIV positive cats AND because we love cerebellar hypoplasia cats we brought Momma Kitty home. We have been waiting for her

dental date to arrive - and today (12/13/23) was her day. Mamma Kitty’s mouth was in bad shape, and she

had to have all of her teeth pulled. She is home, on antibiotics and pain meds, and will be much more

comfortable now! The cost for Momma Kitty’s dental today was $505.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Momma Kitty please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

***MOCHI BOY - INCONTINENT AND REAR LEG ISSUES***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were asked today 12/4/23 if we would accept little Mochi Boy as his person is no longer able to care for him. Mochi’s back legs don’t work properly and he is a little bit incontinent. Mochi Boy is 4 months old. Althouh he has been being seen at a Vet in Moses Lake they aren’t able to determine if his disability is from an injury, if he was

born this way, or exactly what the problem is. We have made an appointment with Dr. Redding at Pioneer

Veterinary Clinic for his examination tomorrow, 12/5/23.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Mochi please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT

MOCHI BOY UPDATE 12/5/23
Mochi’s exam with Dr. Redding at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic this evening went very well. We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) are starting his vaccines over again, he was microchipped and received a flea treatment AND we are scheduling weekly laser treatment to begin soon in hopes that will help his incontinence, and more importantly help with his back legs issues (which might be neurological). After 6 weeks of treatment we will decide if it was beneficial and if we should continue. We did have a pup with similar symptoms about 3 years ago and weekly laser treatments helped her immensely.

***COOKIE - ONE OF OUR PARALYZED DOGS THAT NEEDED AN AMPUTATION***

Cookie was 2 1/2 years old when she came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) in May 2021. She had been found paralyzed, and was going to be euthanized. We brought her home, ordered her wheelchair from Eddie’s Wheels, had her spayed, and she has lived happily with us for the past 2 1/2 years. The morning of November 15,  2023 we found blood on the

mats in her area of the living room. As we picked her up to examine her we were horrified to see that she

had chewed off one of her hind feet overnight. We took her to Dr. Maier at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic

immediately. Dr. Maier explained that even though Cookie has no feeling in her back legs she would

have experienced “phantom pain”.  I am familiar with that term from reading over the years about people

who have had amputations and feel pain in the area of the limb that was no longer there. We currently

have 3 paralyzed dogs that have been with us for years, and can be seen on our website All three have

wheelchairs purchased from Eddie’s Wheels.
Bolt is a Chow that came to us a couple years ago from Seattle; Marvel was sent to us many years ago

from Taiwan; and Cookie. We have had 3 other paralyzed dogs over the past 28 years. Bolt experienced

the same phantom pain about six months ago, but he was slow to start chewing his paw, and we were

able to save it. Cookie wasn’t so lucky as she chewed it off overnight. Dr. Maier and Dr. Jennifer Brown

sent us home with medication and a cone to keep her from reaching her foot again until surgery could

be done. Today (11/22/23) Dr. Brown amputated her leg. Although she has a wheelchair from Eddie’s

Wheels for walks outside in good weather we will buy her a new one to accommodate the loss of her

one rear leg, as there will no longer be a leg to drop into the one opening in her wheelchair. The cost for

Cookie’s amputation today was $1,023.

***BELLA - WE SEND ANOTHER COMPANION ANIMAL TO AN ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY***

Perhaps you saw our post (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) mid September when little

Bella came to us after her family didn’t want her any more. We had a dental for her at Pioneer

Veterinary where she had 18 teeth removed. She is a tiny little girl, and an absolute love. Fast

forward two months - Bella is now residing at Monroe House in Moses Lake. We had her

required Vet exam , vaccinations and paperwork completed 11/20/23 and took her to Monroe

House. Several hours later we made a visit to see how she was doing. She was sleeping peacefully

in the TV room on the lap of one of the ladies that live there. Both seemed very happy.  She is a

companion dog to ALL the senior residents there.
We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) provide companion dogs and cats for residents in assisted

living facilities. We remain the “owner” and provide all medical care, (and food if requested) during

their stay. If the resident’s situation changes their companion returns to us.
It warms our hearts greatly to see the faces of residents light up when we deliver companion critters.

***JELLY BEAN - LONE SURVIVOR IN THE FREEZING WEATHER***

Jelly Bean came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) 11/16/23 after the person that found him contacted 2 other rescues, and was given a medication by one rescue and told to call us for treatment and rescue. He is a good little boy,

approximately 7 weeks old. He was found a lone survivor during the cold weather after his siblings had died.

Jelly Bean had his eye removed today (11/17/23) at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. He was vaccinated and wormed

today. He will remain on antibiotics for two weeks and will be much healthier now. The charges for Jelly Bean

***BROKEN BONNIE'S FAIRYTALE ENDING***

In a wonderful turn of events we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) received a phone call from one of little Bonnie’s doctors at WSU. Dr. Hottmann was with Bonnie during her 5 day stay at WSU, visiting her constantly. And she fell in love with her.

Dr. Hottmann asked if she could adopt Bonnie. She loves her. Bonnie needs one more surgery on her other broken

leg in a few months. We were blessed to have donations to pay for her first surgery of $5,000, but honestly don’t

know if we would be able to raise that again for her next surgery. Dr. Hottmann not only loves Bonnie, but will be

able to provide her second surgery. Who are we to deny either one of them that relationship. And so once again

we thank everyone for your financial and emotional support during this journey. Because of what we do we don’t

always see happy endings for our critters. But little Bonnie just won the gift of a lifetime of love and security.

***BROKEN BONNIE - CONTINUED***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) travelled to Washington State University today, 11/3/23 for Bonnie. Her 4 1/2 hour surgery was completed yesterday, and she is doing great!! She remains in a fair amount of discomfort from her long

surgery, but still has a wonderful attitude. Dr. Danner was her surgeon and physician and Dr. Hottmann was

her emotional support during her 5 days at WSU. Their compassion and kindness toward both Bonnie and

Dale and I were beyond compare. We would like to thank everyone for donations that made Bonnie’s surgery

possible. We received $4,600 in donations toward her $5,000 surgery. We are SOOO grateful for everyone’s

financial AND emotional support. Bonnie has endured a lot during her 6 months of life - but she is now on her

way to having a normal life. She will rehabilitate for several months before she will be ready for surgery on her

second broken leg. I am including a list of her requirements for daily exercises. She won’t like them, but they will help to make her whole again. We are humbled and grateful beyond words for the support you have given Bonnie, and Dale and I over the last couple weeks. Thank you again!!

***BROKEN BONNIE - CONTINUED AND UPDATES***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) spent the day at Washington State University (WSU) today, 10/30/23 with little Bonnie for her assessment for possible surgery and costs. Surgery would be done one leg at a time, with the first surgery

to be done on her right leg. The bone HAS come through the skin and is in danger of causing major infection

and sepsis. The cost for this surgery is estimated to be $5,000 to $6,000 dollars. WSU requires the BALANCE

TO BE PAID IN FULL before releasing the patient. As mentioned in an earlier post donations CANNOT be called

in to Pioneer Vet, as those could only be applied to our Pioneer Vet account. Over the last few days we have

received $1,300 in cash donations toward the possibility of this surgery. We gave that money to WSU today, and

we left Bonnie for her surgery. We are hoping she can come home Friday, but we are in desperate need of

donations to help pay for her surgery. Please find it in your hearts to donate ANY AMOUNT directly to us. You

can do this at PayPal.me/dazeofcamelot or by taking CASH to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic and telling them it is

for Bonnie Casebolt at WSU. Once again, Bonnie is only 6 months old. She came to us about 2 weeks ago with

both back legs that had been broken for some time. The pictures show her x-ray, and the estimate of $5,000 

to $6,000Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

***FUZZY - JUST A BABY, WITH SEVERE SEIZURES***

UPDATE 10/25/23
Fuzzy had several seizures during the night, and this morning she remained in a constant seizure that the doctors were unable to bring her out of. We set her free. She is now at Rainbow  Bridge running healthy and free.

 

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) received a call the morning of 10/24/23 about a young, neighborhood

cat the caller had been feeding for about 2 months. During this time she was able to determine that the kitten

was deaf, but healthy. Things changed the previous day when the kitten (we have named her Fuzzy) began

having trouble breathing and stopped eating. We picked Fuzzy up, took her home to a medical cage, and within

5 minutes she was having a grand mal seizure. We immediately called Pioneer Veterinary Clinic and we’re told

to bring her right in. Glucose test was normal. Dr. Kryshelle Ballard decided to keep her overnight to administer

IV fluids and watch for more seizures. A SNAP test was run and was negative. As of 3:00 Fuzzy has had 2 more seizures. Her blood work is unremarkable. There are no known toxins that she could have gotten into. She will remain at the hospital overnight with meds and fluids, but it doesn’t look promising for little Fuzzy. At this point her charges are over $400. If you would like to donate toward the care she has currently received please do so at the yellow donate button above.

***BROKEN BONNIE - CONTINUED AND UPDATES***

Today (10/12/23 while at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic a call came in about a cat that was found with a broken leg, but the person who found it couldn’t afford to help it. We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were asked by the staff if we would be willing to accept the cat - and of course we said yes! Dr. Maier x-rayed her legs while we waited, and the result was shocking.

BOTH back legs are broken - and have been broken for some time. This little girl is only about 6 months

old. We are naming her Bonnie. Because the legs have been broken for so long we aren’t sure right now

if this will require one amputation or two. Now this sounds terrible I know, but Bonnie has been living like

this most of her short life and is dealing very well with her disability. So today her expenses are X-rays,

vaccine and spay for $497. 
If and when it is determined that amputation of one or both legs is is recommended we will post again for

another fund raiser. Meanwhile Bonnie is safe at home with us. She is a loving girl who was thankfully found

before the cold, wet weather arrives.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Bonnie please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 or donate above at the yellow donate button.
We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much for helping us save the critters!

****UPDATE FOR BONNIE****
Dr Redding at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic contacted WSU Veterinary College about possible treatment for Bonnie.

We have an appointment Monday, October 30 at WSU for an exam, more x-rays and the  estimate of possible

treatment. Monday will be $800. Once we have their suggested plan for treatment we will be asking for

donations- LOTS of donations - as they require payment at the time of service. Because GoFundMe takes

4-5 weeks to disburse donations we will be asking for donations through PayPal. PayPal and GoFundMe

both charge fees, but there isn’t any way around that. We will not be able to proceed with surgery without

your help. I will post on Monday the cost of surgery. Please find it in your hearts to help little Bonnie. If you

haven’t read her story and looked at her x-rays please do so. We appreciate all of you more than you can possibly imagine. 

****UPDATE FOR BONNIE****

Regarding possible Surgery for Broken Bonnie, our appointment at WSU is Monday, October 30. The visit,

X-rays, consultation, etc. is going to be $800. WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR DONATIONS AT THIS TIME FOR

SURGERY because we don’t know if surgery is possible OR if we would be able to raise enough money

to cover the surgery. WSU requires payment at the time of service and so we would have to secure the

total amount prior to surgery. PLEASE DO NOT CALL IN CREDIT CARD DONATIONS TO PIONEER VETERINARY

CLINIC. That money would have to go on our Pioneer Vet account and couldn’t go to WSU. Pioneer Veterinary

Clinic is setting up an envelope for CASH donations that are to be used for Bonnie’s WSU care. They will take

your name, address and phone number. IF WE DO NOT PROCEED WITH SURGERY WE (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) WILL CONTACT YOU AND REFUND YOUR CASH.
Once we determine IF surgery can be done AND the cost we will post asking for donations through our PayPal account or for cash to be taken to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic.
We are truly humbled at the outpouring of concern and love for little Bonnie. Please continue to send her prayers and light.

***BABY - TERRIBLY MATTED AND NEEDED ALL TEETH REMOVED FROM DENTAL DISEASE***

Baby came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) in September 2023. Her human had been moved to assisted living several months earlier, and Baby and 2 other cats were left alone in the owners house as family members were unable to take them. Family would come in and feed them. We accepted all 3 cats, and the other 2 are doing fine. During the

transfer of Baby, Dale was bitten quite badly. We are used to this with cats and know to bleed the bite out

immediately and watch it closely. The following day Dale was receiving emergency treatment for the bite.

Baby was matted TERRIBLY and so we made an appointment with Pioneer Veterinary Clinic for her to be

shaved - with an anesthetic. When they opened the crate door she shot out and they needed to net her.

But they, too, are used to this! When we picked Baby up we were told that she has stomatitis so bad that

all of her teeth need to be pulled. Stomatitis in layman’s terms is when the cats jaw reject the presence of

their teeth. It is extremely painful, not only when they eat, but constantly. Sometimes removing one or two teeth will help. In Baby’s case her entire mouth was involved and all teeth needed to be removed. That was done today, October 18, 2023 and she had 24 teeth pulled. Dogs and cats are miraculous healers, and eat normally even when completely toothless. Baby has been in a medical cage at our house waiting for her dental. After she was shaved and the terribly painful hair mats were removed she

began to accept our presence more and more. She will remain in her medical cage for a couple weeks to

enable her to recover from her extreme dental. After that she will be in the house with the two other cats

that came with her, both of which are becoming more and more friendly. 

The cost for Baby’s extreme dental today was $995.

If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Baby please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT

to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 or donate above at the

***15 YEAR OLD REBA WAS NO LONGER WANTED AND NEEDED A DENTAL***

15 year old Reba came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) after her family didn’t want her any more. Today, 10/17/23 Reba had a much needed dental and had 15 teeth pulled. The cost for her dental today was $839.19.

***BROKEN BONNIE - 6 MONTHS OLD, AND TWO BROKEN LEGS***

While at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic 10/13/23 a call came in about a cat that was found with a broken leg, but the person who found it couldn’t afford to help it. We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were asked by the staff if we would

be willing to accept the cat - and of course we said yes! Dr. Maier x-rayed her legs while we waited, and

the result was shocking. BOTH back legs are broken - AND HAVE BEEN BROKEN FOR SOME TIME. This

little girl is only about 6 months old. We are naming her Bonnie. Because the legs have been broken for

so long we aren’t sure right now if this will require one amputation or two. Now this sounds terrible I

know, but Bonnie has been living like this most of her short life and is dealing very well with her disability.

So today her expenses are X-rays, vaccine and spay for $497.  Her next appointment is with Dr. Courtney

Redding at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic October 21, 2023 for an assessment of the best way to proceed. We

are thinking that it will be recommended that we take little Bonnie to WSU for surgery as the legs have

been broken, and healed over, for so long. Bonnie is able to walk, but when it comes to sitting she half lays

down in order to position her hind legs properly. If and when it is determined that amputation

of one or both legs is recommended we will post again for another fund raiser. Meanwhile

Bonnie is safe at home with us.

She is a loving girl who was thankfully found before the cold, wet weather arrives. 

If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Bonnie please mail or phone a

***13 YEAR OLD TEDDY AND HER SON, 11 YEAR OLD BEAR, IN A SHELTER FOR 3 YEARS AFTER THEIR OWNER DIED***

.

Last week we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) became aware that 13 year old Teddy (momma dog)

and her 11 year old son, Bear, have been at the shelter for almost 3 years - since their owner passed

away. Even 3 years ago they would have been considered elderly as they are large breed German

Shepherd dogs. And they are bonded and needed to be adopted together. 3 years at the shelter - waiting.

The good news is that our shelter does not euthanize and so there was hope. Our Mission Statement for

over 28 years has been to rescue elderly, abused and disabled critters. Last weekend Dale spent 2 day’s

buying materials and doing a remodel to allow us to bring them home. He finally finished last night after

he got home from work and TODAY, 10/3/23 we brought Teddy and Bear “home”.  They have a nice sized

area on our back deck and a very large roofed area that is enclosed with plastic to keep the wind and

snow away. Although they have two very large dogloos, this weekend we will buy enough plywood to

construct a dog house that will be under the roof, large enough for both

of them to fit inside, and tall enough to safely hold a heat lamp for the

coming cold weather. And straw. If you look at their pictures you can

see the hopelessness in Teddy’s eyes - and you can see how old she is.

They have a home again.

They won’t leave this world alone. And when it is time for them to cross

Rainbow Bridge their beloved owner will be waiting for them, to continue

their journey together. 

If you would like to donate toward the building materials please do so above at the yellow area, or find us in PayPal under Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary. Thank you so much.

***WHISPER - 3 WEEKS OLD WITH A SEPTIC ABCESS***

Whisper came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) September 28, 2023 from another rescue. Whisper appears to be 3 to 4 weeks old. She is in very bad shape. Dr. Maier explained that she has a SEPTIC abscess that runs from

her umbilical cord into her hip joint . He has lanced the HUGE abscess and Whisper is now home with

us on antibiotics. If she survives it is possible that this will result in long term arthritis in her joint, but

we won’t know for some time. We are bottle feeding her formula and she is on a heating disc.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for WHISPER please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 OR you

can donate at the yellow button at the top of this page
We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much for

helping us save the critters!

UPDATE 9/29/23: It is with heavy hearts that we lost little Whisper overnight. She had a dinner of formula,

and her antibiotics and was warm on her heating disc. Unfortunately she wasn't brought to us in time to

save her. All we can ever do is try...

***PINKY - 2 WEEKS OLD AND FOUND IN THE ROAD***

When we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) saw this post 9/17/23, we offered our help, and were called to

pick this baby up. Pinky (we named her) appears to be about 2 weeks old. As you can see, her eyes were glued

shut and one is infected.

Once home we gave her a flea bath, a drop of amoxiclav (antibiotic), a drop of Karo syrup, terramycin in both

eyes and of course formula. She was a hungry girl. Pinky is resting in her kennel on a heating disc,

accompanied by her stuffed mamma bear.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for PINKY please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to:

Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 OR donate above

at the yellow donate button. 
We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much for

helping us save the critters!

UPDATE 9/21/23: Pinky is doing very well now. One eye seems to be okay, while the other eye remains very

questionable and might require enucleation (removal) in a couple of months when she is older and stronger.

We are continuing to apply terramycin eye ointment in both eyes twice daily, but there doesn't seem to be a

need for antibiotics any more. Other than the one bad eye she is doing very well, and meows loudly when it

is time for her next feeding!!!

***STEVIE - FOUND IN AN ORCHARD - WITH NO EYES***

Stevie came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) 9/17/23 after being found with her two siblings in an orchard

in Chelan. They are about 4 months old. Stevie has no eyes, with possibly a very small globe in one socket. She was

vaccinated and wormed today, and will have a double enucleation (eye removal) and spay very soon to remove any

remains of eye globes and to prevent infection if sockets were left open. Stevie is a very loving little girl.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for STEVIE please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to

Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794, or you can donate at the YELLOW

button at the top of this page. 
We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much for helping us

save the critters!

UPDATE 9/30/23: Stevie had her surgery today to remove any remains of the globes in her eye sockets and she was also spayed.

She has been doing very well at home without her eyesight, and this will continue to keep her healthy and prevent infections in her eye sockets.

***BELLA - OLD WITH ROTTEN TEETH - THEY DIDN'T WANT HER ANYMORE***

Weighing in at a Whopping 5 pounds little Bella came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) mid September 2023 when her family didn’t want her any more.  Bella is 10 years old, and her teeth are terrible. We always have an exam immediately for our incoming critters that are old, to make sure they don’t need heart meds or a special diet for failing kidneys. Today,

9/20/23, Bella had a much needed dental, which resulted in having 18 teeth pulled. She will eat much

easier now, and be in better health long term. She will be on antibiotics for 10 days and pain meds for

several days. The cost for Bella’s exam and her dental was $1,200.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for BELLA please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794

***PUSSPUSS - FOUND TOO LATE, BUT WE HAD TO TRY***

We were called by Pioneer Veterinary Clinic September 14, 2023 regarding a cat that was brought to their office by a person that found her. The person said the cat had been a stray for a long time. The cat was in very bad shape. Pioneer Vet asked if we would take ownership of the cat to allow treatment. Of course we said yes!! She appears to be an older girl and is suffering from an old wound in her hindquarters. The wound was full of maggots. She (PussPuss) was very underweight, and

very dirty. She appeared to be on her own and suffering for a long time. Dr. Maier admitted her

as an inpatient and immediately began IV fluids with antibiotics and gave her a Capstar to kill

the maggots and fleas. When we have a critter in the hospital I always visit them at least twice

a day. When I did so with PussPuss she seemed unable to move, but she purred when I pet her

and talked to her. It was acknowledged immediately that her prognosis wasn't good - but we

had to try. 

UPDATE: It is with a very heavy heart that PussPuss passed away. The doctors at Pioneer

Veterinary Clinic did all they could to save her and keep her comfortable during her last days.

She didn't die alone, outside. She was warm and knew that she was being cared for. This one

was really hard for us. All we can ever do is try. PussPuss is now running healthy and free at

Rainbow Bridge.

***MAGNOLIA - BLIND AND CEREBELLAR HYPOPLASIA***

Second Update 10/4/23: Magnolia is having severe seizures and is now on Phenobarbital to help control the seizures. We have several critters with seizures that take these medications every day. 

 

Update: I am going to add that we have several blind cats - born blind, both eyes removed, etc. Magnolia does not act like a typical “blind” cat. I believe there is something else involved. Something isn’t quite right with her brain. She is safe here. She will be loved here.

 

 

You might have seen the Facebook post day 9/4/23 with the picture of a found, young cat, in

distress. We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) responded and picked her up. Once home

we named her Magnolia, vaccinated her and gave her food, Karo syrup and water. Although

she ate and drank normally the odd gait that the people who rescued her had noticed was still

there. In addition she showed signs of neurological damage.  We guessed a possible broken

pelvis, which would account for an unsteady rear end walking as well as head trauma. We did

not administer pain meds in case there was head trauma, but decided to wait until her visit at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic.
Today (9/6/23) Magnolia was examined and X-rays taken at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. The good news is that her pelvis is not broken. It is believed that she has mild cerebellar hypoplasia which accounts for her unstable walking. We have 5 CH cats that vary in intensity. Magnolia’s is very mild. CH doesn’t get better - and it doesn’t get worse.
Magnolia is blind. Her eyes are in good shape, and so the blindness comes from a problem in her brain. She will need to be an indoor kitty due to her inability to see.
The cost for Magnolia’s X-rays and exam today was $280.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Magnolia please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 or donate above at the yellow donate button.

***LUNA - FELINE IDIOPATHIC AGGRESSION***

UPDATE 9/5/23: Luna is doing very well here. He lets me feed and water without any signs of aggression (so far). He is enjoying watching the outdoor cats come in and out of Kamp Kitty to eat and sleep. We would never trust him inside the house, but if he tolerates us for several months we will open the doors to his enclosure so he can join the other outdoor cats.

Luna will spend the rest of his life with us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary). The picture of Luna with a bow

was while he lived very happily for the first two years of his life. Six months ago that changed. He suddenly,

unprovoked, began viscously attacking all human family members. Doctors reported the family to CPS
To protect their children, their beloved family pet Luna had to go. A local rescuer stepped up to rescue him,

but he would throw himself at the cage trying to attack. Veterinarians were contacted and it was proposed

that Luna had just snapped. It is uncommon, but it happens.
We were contacted by the rescuer for our thoughts. They didn’t want to euthanize Luna, but his future looked dim.
Our research turned up a condition called idiopathic aggression which cause can’t be determined through behavior history or medical exam. They may bite repeatedly and remain in a state of negative arousal for extended periods of time.
Today, 9/3/23 we went to pick Luna up and bring him to Daze of Camelot. We have rescued “many ” extremely feral and fractious cats in our 28 years. Although not feral, Luna would be approached as such.
Once in a crate we took Luna home, where he will be housed in a VERY large cage inside Kamp Kitty. He will be

able to visit with our other outdoor cats , feral and otherwise, as they come in and out to eat and to sleep at night,

to get out of inclement weather, and stay warm in winter months. If his behavior changes over the coming

months or years we will open the doors to his enclosure and allow him to join the others. Luna is safe.
We want to thank his family for reaching out for help, to the rescue that took him in and looked for a safe haven

when they realized his condition was serious and irreversible. Luna is safe.
If you would like to help us with the care for Luna please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 or donate above at the yellow donate button.

***AUGUST 2023 ENDS WITH MULTIPLE RESCUES***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) have taken in 4 “needy” cats this past week.

Pippa came to us 8/27/23 from a neighborhood where 14 kittens had been killed by dogs.

She is a petite girl, about 6 weeks old who arrived with an upper respiratory infection and

infected eyes. We started her on AmoxiClav and terramycin immediately and she is

responding well.
We were called by the municipal airfield to rescue Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum 9/1/23 as

they were on the runway and were doomed to die. Apparently it’s quite common, but we

reached them in time. Both received vaccinations today and are scheduled to be neutered

September 27.
We also received a phone call from Pioneer Veterinary Clinic 9/1/23 asking if we would take

a tiny kitten that had been brought in. Of course we rushed there to pick her up, and named her Weezle.

She weighs in at only 8 ounces and is very tiny and underweight. She has an upper respiratory infection

and both eyes are infected - BUT it appears that one eye is gone. Weezle is on AmoxiClav and terramycin

and we are feeding her kitten formula by syringe. Once she is older and stronger she will need surgery to

remove any remnants of the globe that was once an eye, and suture the area closed to prevent future

infections.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Pippa, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and little

Weezle please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon

Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837(509) 765-6794 or donate above at the yellow donate button. 

We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much for helping

***HAZEL - FOUND WITH A DANGLING LEG***

Hazel came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) August 17, 2023 after being found with a front

leg that was dangling, and in need of amputation. She was taken to another rescue, who sent her to us.

We took her immediately to Dr. Courtney Redding at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic for X-rays, SNAP test,

vaccination and a medical evaluation. We are also treating her for ringworm, which apparently is quite

rampant in kitties this year. We are estimating her age at 3-4 months. Her amputation was performed

August 22, 2023 and she is home recovering. Hazel is a beautiful little girl with a gentle personality. Once

she has recovered from her amputation she will also be spayed.
The cost for Hazel’s amputation, vaccine and X-rays is $900.41.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Hazel please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT

to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794, or you can donate

***SCRAPPY - FERAL KITTEN NEEDED EYE REMOVAL***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were contacted August 2, 2023 about a kitten with a bad eye in

Soap Lake. Although they called other rescues, nobody was willing to help. One told them they don’t deal

with feral cats or kittens. We are naming this little one Scrappy.

While waiting to hear from Pioneer Veterinary Clinic for the date of his eye removal Scrappy

was on AmoxiClav antibiotics at our home, and was vaccinated as he seems healthy other

than needing his eye removed. Scrappy is young enough to be tamed, and after he has recovered from

his surgery he will go to Hands n Paws rescue for adoption. We receive no income or compensation for

him being adopted out by Hands n Paws.

The total cost for the surgery for Scrappy was $604.00.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Scrappy please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794. You can also donate

***KARI - ANOTHER KITTEN EYE REMOVAL***

Little Kari is one of the many that was brought to us while we were working the Warden fireworks stand for the Sand Scorpions ( our only fundraiser every year for 13 years). She’s a little girl, and full of love. Although other rescues were

asked to take her, we are the only one that accepted her. Today (July 18, 2023) was her day!! Her eye has

been removed, and when a little older we will have her spayed. Then she will be ready to go to Hands N Paws

for adoption. We receive no money for her adoption. The cost for Kari’s surgery was $559.29.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Kari please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 .
We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much

for helping us save the critters!

***ELDERLY BONDED PAIR FROM TACOMA PIERCE COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY***

The Elderly Bonded Pair from Tacoma Pierce County Humane Society that came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) June 10, 2023 after sitting in the Tacoma shelter for over 7 weeks because they were old and needed to

be adopted together finally had their dental appointments this week. When the Tacoma Pierce

County Humane Society took them they came from a home of neglect and abuse. Prince adjusted

quickly once here, but little Pua was very afraid for about 2 weeks. She now realizes that she is

safe, will never face abuse again, and is still with Prince who she is bonded with. They were both

in desperate need of a dental. The odor from Prince’s mouth was horrible. But that ended today.

Our Vet said that Prince’s mouth was one of the worst they have seen. Both dogs are on antibiotics

and pain medication. The dental cost for Pua was $720 and the cost for Prince was $975 , totaling

$1695 for the two dentals. 

If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Pua and Prince please mail or phone a donation

IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794. 

We do not adopt out and so do not have income from the critters we take in. Thank you so much for

helping us save the critters!

***COMPANION ANIMALS FOR ASSISTED LIVING RESIDENTS***

A reminder to those new to our Facebook posts (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) or to our web site (www.dazeofcamelot.org), we provide companion cats and small dogs to residents in senior living

facilities. If you have a family member in an assisted living facility that allows small pets, and they

would like a companion, please contact us. We provide State required vaccines and medical before

entry, and we will provide continued medical and vaccines while your relative has our critter. Currently,

and in the past, we have provided companion animals to residents in Monroe House, Pioneer Village,

and Brookdale Hearthstone. We will also provide their food if asked to. The cat or dog continues to

belong to Daze of Camelot, and will be returned to us if your loved one’s situation changes. If your

loved one is in need of a companion critter while in a senior living facility we are happy to try and help.

***JULY 2023 FIREWORKS STAND AND 7 RESCUES***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) would like to once again thank the Sand Scorpions for letting us help to run one of their fireworks stands for the 13th year. As many of you know, this is our ONLY fund raiser every year. This year (2023)

we will be blessed with another donation of about $2,000 from the Sand Scorpions for our hours at their Warden

fireworks stand. During the 6 1/2 days we were there we were brought 7 cats needing critical medical care. (We

always have carriers and emergency supplies in our car) TURTLE requires both eyes removed. SPARKY requires

antibiotics, eye medication, and being fed with a syringe for a couple weeks . We believe we were able to save her

eyes, but we are waiting for the final outcome. FREEDOM is being treated for a broken leg. Amputation does not

appear to be necessary at this time. KARI requires one eye removal and antibiotics and eye medicine while waiting

for her surgery. CASPER is an older male Tomcat with an upper respiratory infection. We are treating him with

antibiotics.
MOMMA CAT and 2 babies.
FOUR TWO WEEK OLD KITTENS that were brought to us by Warden Animal Control.
All 7 cats are receiving their set of 3 vaccinations. All 7 cats have appointments at

Pioneer Veterinary Clinic to be spayed.
Thank you for keeping you fur babies safe during the fireworks. We always stay

close to watch our horses, donkeys, goats and outside resident critters during

fireworks week. We always remove the picture posts regarding fireworks and critter

care immediately after the 4th, but we repost the same photos every year. We hope you save these photos to your

library and post them on your page.
Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary is a forever home for elderly, abused and disabled animals OF ALL KINDS.

We do not adopt out and so we have no income from the critters that come to us.
All donations should be mailed or phoned to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837

***SIMONE - BABY KITTEN FOUND ALONE, STARVING AND EYE NEEDING REMOVAL***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were contacted Sunday, June 11,  2023 by a couple that found a very small kitten the previous day with an eye that was protruding, and needed to be removed. Although they contacted other rescues nobody was willing to take the baby. When they sent us a photo we knew we had to step in.  When we took

her we told them that we weren’t sure if we could save her. Although they were able to feed her milk

she was dehydrated, terribly thin and quite lifeless. Once home she (Simone) was not willing to take

formula and had to be forced to take the bottle. We gave her a flea bath, a drop of Karo Syrup, a

drop of antibiotics, and applied terramycin to her one remaining eye. Simone was tucked into a small

carrier with soft blankets, a heating disc, and a stuffed animal to snuggle with. We continued feeding

her every 3 hours until we could get her to Pioneer Vet the following day. Once there she was wormed,

given medication to soften her stool (which she will be taking at home every 8 hours for several days),

given sub Q fluids, and put in the incubator for several hours. When Simone is healthy enough her

eye will be removed. She loves to be held and sleeps peacefully when tucked under our chin.
Tuesday morning she woke up meowing and was ready for formula! Although she is still

critical we are hoping she will remain strong enough to continue improving and be able to

have the eye removed soon.

If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Simone please mail or phone

a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave.,

Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 above on the donate button.
Thank you so much for helping us save the critters!

***OLAFFE - A GENTLE GIRL THAT WAS SHOT***

Olaffe came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) from
Mattawa the first week of June 2023. She had been a stray for a short time but had recently started limping and was unable to use her left front leg. The lady that called us was unable to find anyone to help. She graciously

drove the cat to us in Moses Lake. We took Olaffe to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic the following day.

Examination and X-rays revealed that she had been shot. Her leg needed to be amputated.

Surgery was performed and we brought Olaffe home. She is a gentle girl that is recovering well.

The cost for Olaffe’s amputation and X-rays was $1,250.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Olaffe please mail or phone a donation IN ANY

AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 
OR donate above on the donate button! Thank you so much for helping us save the critters!

***RITZIE - BORN WITH NO EYES***

Ritzie came to Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary June 5, 2023 after being found wandering in Ritzville.  Her rescuer took her to a Veterinarian who said that she was born with no eyes, and is about 7 weeks old. He offered to euthanize her, but the rescuer refused, and called us. Ritzie is taking antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection. She is a lovable little

girl with lots of spunk. Because her eye sockets remain open, it is necessary to surgically close them to

prevent future infections. If you would like to help us provide for this surgery donations can be mailed or

phoned to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 .
We currently have 4 cats with no eyes. We don’t consider them “disabled” as they all get along and get

around without a problem. Our blind dogs do as well! It just takes a little time to adjust if furniture is moved!

****MIDNIGHT - SUFFERING ON THE STREET WITH BADLY BROKEN LEG****

May 2023 has been incredibly busy so far, and we are only half way through the month. We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) received a cerebellar hypoplasia kitten (Fidget),  a kitten we netted that was in the engine of a FedEx truck (Axl Rose), a feral cat (Mayo) hit by a car with a terribly broken pelvis, AND 5/17/23 we were called to rescue yet another cat that was hit by a car. This kitty will be called Midnight. Midnight suffered a very badly broken rear leg. We rushed him to Pioneer

Veterinary Clinic first thing in the morning, and his leg was amputated. BUT Midnight had apparently

been on the street, suffering, for some time. Dr. Courtney Redding found that he was wafer thin, suffered

terrible road rash and infection, AND has a badly injured front leg also. The front leg isn’t broken but it

will take a long, long time to heal. Even though his staples from the amputation will be removed in 10

days he will remain in one of our medical kennels for quite some time while he gains weight and his

front leg attempts to heal. The cost today for Midnight was $1,130.
If you would like to help us with the medical bills for Midnight’s amputation please mail or phone a donation IN ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 
Thank you so much for helping us save the critters!

***MAYO- FERAL WITH BADLY BROKEN PELVIS****

We received a call May 16th about a cat that had been hit by a car, and looked like it had one or two broken back legs. The person that called tried to get the cat, but it appeared to be feral. Dale and I headed to the location with our net and carrier, where the cat was leaning against a fence. Dale is the net expert and approached the cat slowly, but as he got closer the cat bolted along the fence line. The first attempt to net failed, but Dale ran, and fell flat to drop the net over the cat and secure it.

I came running with the crate but was afraid Dale was hurt. He wasn’t. We loaded the cat (now called Mayo)

into the crate and headed to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. X-rays were taken, pain meds administered, and

because he was loaded with fleas he received a capstar (to instantly kill fleas) and a dose of Frontline.

Although he suffered no broken legs, Mayo’s pelvis is terribly broken. We have treated MANY critters with

a broken pelvis over the years. It requires kennel rest with little to no movement for 6 to 9 weeks. The question

for Mayo though was if the pelvis was so badly broken that he wouldn’t be able to pee or have a bowel

movement. Leaving him at the hospital for two or three days would reveal the answer. We could express his bladder if needed but if unable to go to have a bowel movement we wouldn’t be able to help him. May 18th Mayo remains in the hospital and is receiving meds while being observed. We are hoping to bring him home by the 20th. His charges so far are $350. If you would like to help us to help Mayo please mail or phone ANY donation amount to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837

****COCCIDIOSIS , GIARDIA, AND BACK YARD BREEDERS****


Enter Maggie. Maggie is a French Bulldog…commonly known as a “Frenchie”. The average cost to buy a Frenchie puppy is $2,000 - $3,000.
When Maggie left the local backyard breeder she had diarrhea. The diarrhea turned to bloody

diarrhea. She was rapidly losing weight from her already small body.
Maggie’s new owner took her to the Vet where it was discovered she had coccidia, which is a

specific parasite that requires extensive medication. It is highly contagious.   It can come from

contaminated water, eating feces that is contaminated, and ground that has been contaminated

with it.

Coccidiosis can cause severe diarrhea, abdominal distress, vomiting, dehydration, and in severe cases death. Maggie

suffered from all of it. She was placed on several weeks worth of medications to cure the coccidia.

Although the diarrhea improved it didn’t stop, and she didn’t gain weight. Maggie’s new owner was unable to continue caring for her diarrhea, and the mounting Vet bills and medications .

They were considering euthanasia. That’s when we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) stepped in, and Maggie was released to us April 26, 2023. Maggie weighs only 10 pounds!
Dr. Courtney Redding (Pioneer Veterinary Clinic) took X-rays, added probiotics, switched Maggie to a specialized diet and drew blood for two specific tests, Addison’s Disease (negative) and a specialized test that would take 14 days for results to be returned. Maggie was also placed on Royal Canin Gastrointestinal diet. Her medication is ground up and added to SMALL meatballs which we give her throughout the day in hopes she will absorb the medications before she poops it out. We are hoping to save her.
If you would like to help with Maggie’s continued care donations can be mailed or called to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794. 
If you buy from a breeder please check with THEIR veterinarian before purchasing to make sure they have vaccinated the puppies, the mother dog is healthy and cared for, and if they have any concerns about hip dysplasia, or other hereditary matters. Your dog’s life, and possibly the life of other dogs in your house depends on it.

UPDATE: For those of you that are following little Maggie’s journey we have news this morning. The good news is the coccidia is gone. The bad news is we are now switching to meds for giardia . We are still using 16 disposable pads daily, feeding Royal Canin Gastrointestinal canned with constant meds every 2-3 hours. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS ORDERED DISPOSABLE PADS FOR MAGGIE. I’m sure our UPS and FedEx drivers hate us, but your kindness is SO very appreciated. I will be sending out receipts as soon as I have time. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT MAGGIE CAME FROM A BACK YARD BREEDER!! FRENCH BULLDOG. DO NOT SUPPORT BACK YARD BREEDERS!! 

MAGGIE'S JOURNEY CONTINUES:
For those who are following Maggie’s journey you will recall that she came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) from a lady that rescued her from a back yard breeder. She was very sick when rescued. Her diarrhea is so intense that we have been using 32 disposable pads daily for several weeks. (Thank you so much to everyone that has donated pads) We were able to cure the coccidia and have moved on to battling giardia for the past week. We changed medications and she seemed to be doing well - eating and gaining weight, still diarrhea but not as runny. Today Maggie is unable to take any of her numerous medications, drink or eat without vomiting immediately, and her diarrhea is the consistency of water again. We are up to over 32 disposable pads a day. This morning (May 8, 2023) she was admitted to the hospital.
If you would like to donate to Maggie’s continuing medical expenses please mail or phone donations to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794. 
We will not give up on Maggie. PLEASE do not buy from and support back yard breeders! By the time your puppy shows symptoms it might be too late to save them!

JUNE 5, 2023: Maggie has now been fighting this for over 2 months. Her medication has once again been changed, as has her

diet. The blood appears to be gastrointestinal, and she is taking sucralfate and omeprazole. The blood is lessening and although her diarrhea isn't as bad as it has been for so many weeks, it is still diarrhea. She has once again been xrayed and CT scanned. Dr. Redding has discussed Maggie with a laboratory. Her medical bills are rising rapidly, but we will not give up on her. Her spirit is good, and she loves being held and giving kisses. Please donate if you can....

****OREO - BADLY BROKEN LEG****

We received a message April 18, 2023 about a cat that had been showing up for food for some time, but had been unable to use one leg for over a week. We set a live trap and were able to trap him (Oreo) that evening.

The following morning we took him to Pioneer Vet where X-rays showed that his leg was in

extremely bad condition. Because treatment would take anywhere from months to a year, with

no guarantee that an eventual amputation might be necessary, we decided to amputate now.

Looking at his picture you can see that this old man has had a long, hard life. That changes now.

Oreo will spend his remaining years as an indoor boy.
The charges for Oreo’s amputation and hospital care are $1,890.60.
If you would like to donate toward Oreo’s amputation and medication please mail or phone a donation in any amount to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 
No donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible. Thank you so much!

****THOMAS AND FEATHER****

Thomas and Feather came to Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary within 2 days of each other - both requiring surgeries.
THOMAS was found on train tracks, in the country, by two younger boys March 31, 2023. He was blind, and when they spoke and picked him up he clung to them. One eye was already gone. The second eye was infected and blind.

While waiting for his surgery we administered Amoxi/Clavamox antibiotics, terramycin, and sterile eye

wash twice daily. Both eyes were removed April 10, 2023 and he was neutered.
FEATHER was dumped at a farm in the county April 2, 2023. She appears to be less than a year old.

She was underweight and a large portion of her tail appeared to have died.

Perhaps from freezing. She is a mild mannered little girl that was in

desperate need of help.

Her surgery was April 7, 2023 at which time she was spayed and her tail

was amputated.
Both kitties are on antibiotics and pain meds and are healing well.
The cost for Thomas is $733.37.
The cost for Feather is $633.96.
If you would like to donate please send or call all donations to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic,

827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509)765-6794 
No donation is too small, and all donations are tax deductible. Thank you so much!

****A MIRACLE FOR MIRACLE****

 

                                                                                 ****TWIZZLE AND STIX****

Twizzle and Stix came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) in late January 2023. It is believed that these two babies have Feline Swimmer Syndrome. This showed up in Twizzle and Stix when they were 3 weeks old. They

came to us at 8 weeks of age. Their Vet appointment with Dr. Courtney Redding at Pioneer

Veterinary Clinic is February 6th. We will post the outcome at that time. Even though they

are “disabled” they get around without assistance and are happy little kittens.
Swimmer syndrome is a congenital condition that can occur in young kittens, causing the

legs (typically the hind limbs) to splay laterally. It typically won’t show up until the kitten is

about 3 weeks old.

The kitten may have a frog-like posture, with the hips jutting out to the side of the body and

the feet facing sideways, rather than placed underneath the body. . Many kittens are born with

swimmer syndrome, but they are very commonly euthanized, even though the condition is

treatable THROUGH EARLY INTERVENTION and physical therapy. If you’ve recently rescued

a kitten with swimmer syndrome, don’t be discouraged. Act quickly, and you may be able to

make a lifelong difference for the kitten’s mobility. 

UPDATE: Twizzle and Stix were treated by Dr. Courtney Redding at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic.

While under anesthesia their legs were straightened and they were put in casts. They

returned every 2 weeks for 6 weeks to have the casts changed and xrays taken to re-

evaluate their progress. The procedure was a total success and casts were removed. After

regaining their ability to walk "normally" Twizzle and Stix were transferred to Hands N Paws

to be adopted into a home of their own - together!!

Miracle was found at a private home by a local rescuer the night of March 10,  2023 after it was thought she was hit by a car. The following morning the rescuer called us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) asking if we would take medical responsibility for her. We met them at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake where Miracle was given to us, and was examined by Dr. Dick Maier. It was determined that Miracle had a broken jaw and needed one eye removed. As it was a weekend surgery would be performed Monday March 13th. We brought Miracle home for the weekend so we could syringe feed and water her and give pain medications. 
Surgery was performed March 13th by Dr. Jennifer Brown at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. DAMAGE WAS FAR GREATER THAN WE THOUGHT.
Her eye was removed, her lower broken jaw was wired and will remain so for about 6 weeks,

she IS PREGNANT, BUT her upper jaw hard pallet is also broken in half (this can’t be wired). 

We are hoping that the bone underneath is not damaged. THIS IS NOT A FOUR DAY OLD INJURY!

Miracle has been suffering for awhile.
Although cats can eat when the bottom jaw is wired from a break, the fact that her upper pallet

is also broken severely restricts her ability to eat on her own right now. We will be syringe feeding

Miracle a special diet until she is able to eat by herself. During her recovery Miracle will have her babies. She will be very capable of raising them.
The cost for Miracle’s surgeries was $678.

UPDATE: Miracle had 2 babies that were born March 28. Because we were anticipating that she would need help, we were there. Unfortunately Miracle had no interest in delivering or caring for her kits. We were able to remove them from the sacs, clean them and warm them. THEY WERE TOO SMALL!!! We began feeding them every 3 hours immediately, put them on a warming disc, but knew their care was beyond our capabilities. A wonderful friend who rescues baby kits (Arlene Bowman) came to pick them up that night, and fed them every 2 hours until they could be transported to Dave Buster Rescues in Yakima, WA the next day. As of April 3rd the larger baby is doing well and gaining weight. It is still not known if the little one will survive. Dave Buster Rescues is a SPECIALIZED RESCUE for newborn kittens that have no mother or need help. These two were born premature and needed far more than a nursing mother to take over their care. They are being fed every 1-2 hours and are residing in an incubator. 

Miracle's sutures have been removed from her eye removal, but she still has about 4 more weeks before the wires are removed from her lower jaw. She is still unable to eat on her own, which is due to her upper palate being broken, as critters are able to eat with lower jaw wiring. We are feeding her AD with a syringe twice daily.

                                                   ****SEVENTEEN - THROWN FROM A CAR ON HIGHWAY 17****

December 3, 2022. This little girl was thrown out of a car on Hwy 17. A concerned person

picked her up and called us. We took her to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic where she was diagnosed

with a broken jaw. Her surgery was performed immediately by Dr. Brown. We named her Seventeen.

Her jaw will remain wired for six weeks, and she will be spayed once she has healed. 

 

BE AWARE!! THERE IS A LOCAL RESCUE THAT IS POSTING FUNDRAISERS FOR ANIMALS THAT

                                                      ****HANNAH - 13 YEARS OLD AND DUMPED IN FREEZING WEATHER****

Early December 2022 we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) received a call from a local landlord

about an old dog that had been abandoned at one of his rental properties- FOR THE SECOND TIME.

The dog, Hannah, was now13 years old. She had lived at this property for over 10 years with a

previous renter. When therenter moved, he left her.

 

A new renter moved in and accepted Hannah as part of their family - until they moved 2 years

later - and also left her.

By now she was at least 13 years old. The weather had been way below freezing with over 8 inches

of snow on the ground for over a month. The landlord brought Hannah food and water, but she was living outside in terrible winter weather.

Shelters have been full for over a year. Rescues have been full for over a year due to all the critters being dumped. Could we help? Yes.

Hannah is a gentle soul that asks for nothing. She will live out her days here inside, on soft beds, with other “ancient ones” to keep her company.

Hannah.jpg

                                                                 ****FOXY - DUMPED AND LIVING WITH FOXES****

Early December 2022 we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were contacted by a local

rescuer about a dog that had been living with foxes for over a month. The fox family

(called a skulk!) was being fed by a caring person, and the stray dog had been lucky enough

in the freezing temperatures to have been accepted by the foxes, invited into their den, and

allowed to share the food they were receiving.

All shelters have been full for months. All rescues have been beyond full for over a year due

to all the animals that are being dumped. Could we help? Yes.

Traps were arranged, timing was set for feeding time, and we joined the rescuers

that contacted us and the caregiver to get the dog to safety. Foxy (who we named for

obvious reasons) went easily into the large trap, and was transported to our home, where

she is happily living and waiting for her spay date in March 2023. Thank you, Jack and

Sheri DeRam, for contacting us and for stepping in to save Foxy. Rescue is very often

accomplished by more than one person, more than one rescuer. It’s what we do as rescuers. We are rescue.

***DOUBLE WHAMMY WEEK!!!***

 


 

Monday (November 14, 2022) we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) went to Soap Lake to watch our youngest grandson play basketball. Found in the bushes a kitten 8-10 weeks old. The kitten has a broken jaw AND badly

broken right front leg that required amputation. We loaded him into a carrier,

called Pioneer Vet to schedule an early morning drop off, and took him home.

Wednesday (11/16/22) Dr. Brown wired his broken jaw and amputated his badly

broken leg. Critters are sooo resilient. He will heal and be a new boy. His new

name is Connor.
At the same time we dropped this little one off we also dropped off Peanut to have

his eye removed. You might remember

his picture from an earlier post, but after a few weeks of treatment we were

unable to stabilize and save his eye.  He is

now ready to lead a normal, healthy life as an indoor kitty.
The cost for these two is:
Peanut eye removal $681.11
Kitten (Connor) jaw wiring and amputation
$1,258.92
Total for both $1,940
Daze of Camelot does not adopt out critters that come to us and so we have no “income” from them. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation toward these two surgeries please mail or phone Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794.
If you prefer you can use PayPal and PayPal us! 
NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL AND ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Thank you so much!

                                                                           ****KACIE - DUMPED AND LEFT TO DIE****

Kacie was found by a passerby in November 2022, shivering and alone after having been dumped by her owner in the middle of nowhere. The Good Samaritan tried to rescue her, but she was terrified and

wouldn’t let him near. He was unable to get anyone to help him, but knew she would

die if left as the temperature was close to zero -and she was beyond skinny.

So he contacted us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary).

Because the location was so far away and night was coming we contacted Bob

with Res Q Angels in Yakima. Bob immediately loaded up and headed to the site, while the person

that found her stayed with her to assure her help was coming. Once he arrived Bob was able

to catch her and get her into a cage for transport to Kennewick, WA where we would meet

him (75 miles) and bring her to Daze.

We named her after the man that found her and took the time to care.

Rescue is often accomplished by more than one person, more than one rescuer. We work together

to save lives. It’s what we do. We are rescue.

***STRATFORD - LOST BUT NOT FORGOTTEN***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were called yesterday 9/15/22 requesting help for a kitten with a bad eye.  After seeing the picture of the kitten, we immediately picked the kitten up, had the owner sign a release, and headed to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. This kitten was obviously in critical condition.  Surgery was performed this morning (9/16/22). 

We named the kitten Stratford, and he is in critical condition following his surgery. The cost

of surgery was $350. 

Unfortunately, little Stratford was not strong enough to make it through the trauma of such a

serious surgery. He spent time in the incubator at the hospital, but his little body was too far

gone. If we had been contacted earlier, we might have been able to save him. Little Stratford

was only about 4 weeks old.

***TWO KITTENS FROM TACOMA PIERCE COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY***

 

 

Fey and Rhy came to Daze of Camelot from the Tacoma Pierce County Humane Society in Tacoma, WA after we were asked to take them to save them from probable euthanasia due to being deformed and not adoptable. Fey and Rhy had their Vet check Saturday 8/27/22. We are going to wait and see how Rhy’s malformed front leg progresses over the next few months. Best case scenario is that he uses the leg without creating sores. If sores and infection become apparent we will amputate. Dogs and cats do great with 3 legs. We have done dozens of amputations

over the years. His other front leg, though somewhat bent, does not look like it will present a problem in the future. 
On the other hand Fey’s diagnosis is different. The circled portions of the attached X-ray are Fae’s kneecaps. As you can

see both kneecaps are not even close to being in place.  To correct her deformity and enable her to lead a normal life

surgery is required on both legs. Dr. Rischen travels to Pioneer Vet Clinic (PVC) from Tri-Cities weekly to perform

specialized surgeries for PVC patients.  X-rays are being transmitted to him for his estimation on cost and effectiveness

of performing this surgery. If deemed helpful we will post a GoFundMe for surgery costs. This surgery can not go on our

Vet bill but must be paid directly to Dr. Rischen at the time of surgery.  As GoFundMe pays a month after moneys are

received, surgery will be scheduled accordingly.  

UPDATE 8/29/22: We received the estimate for Fey’s surgery to be done by Dr. Rischen from Tri-Cities, which would

be performed at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake.  Again, the surgery fee would have to paid directly to Dr.

Rischen.
Fey’s luxating patella (times 2) is at level 4 out of 4. Because of this the surgery on each leg would be extremely challenging

and would encompass 3-4 hours PER KNEE. In addition, Dr. Rischen feels the surgeries might not be feasible.
The cost PER KNEE would be $1500 to $2000 - and again, he believes it might not be feasible.
Because Fey was born like this she has learned to adapt to her disability.
If complete recovery was deemed probable we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) would run a GoFundMe in an attempt

to pay for her surgeries. But because success in the outcome is questionable we have decided not to ask for donations for

the surgeries.
Dr. Redding (Pioneer Veterinary Clinic) agrees with our decision, and feels that little Fey has adapted to her disability, and will continue to do so. And so our little froggy looking girl will continue to be happy the way she is !

***BLACKIE - DUMPED IN YARD WITH MAJOR INFECTION***

We (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) found Blackie in the driveway mid July 2022. As one side of her face appeared to be swollen we made an appointment with Pioneer Veterinary Clinic for treatment of an apparent abscess. Several days later the abscess was lanced and antibiotics started. The odd thing about it was that when the abscess was lanced the pus was BROWN. It was possible she would need a dental to help resolve the infection. BUT within a week her face began to swell again ~ quickly. We took Blackie back for an emergency dental

the following day. Later that day Dr. Courtney Redding called to give us details of the truly horrific dental procedure.

The abscesses had indeed been caused by Blackie’s dental issues. Several of her teeth literally broke off at the gum line,

but the roots remained and needed to be removed. In addition, a good portion of her jawbone had been eaten away

from a prolonged infection and the infection had traveled into one of her eyes. At the end of a long dental procedure

Blackie had 3 teeth remaining. We brought her home with continued antibiotics, and pain meds. The total cost to help

this girl found in our driveway was $1,250.

Those that are familiar with us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) know that WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT AND HAVE NO INCOME FROM THE ELDERLY, ABUSED AND DISABLED CRITTERS THAT CALL US HOME. WE ARE A 501c3 NON PROFIT SANCTUARY and rely on TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS to do what we do to provide a final home for those that come here. This is our 26th year doing this in Moses Lake, WA. This includes 3 paralyzed wheelchair dogs, several critters that receive insulin twice daily for diabetes, several that receive seizure medication twice daily, critters that are on heart medication, special diets for kidney failure critters, amputations of one or two legs, two cats that required both eyes removed, dogs that have been used as bait, a colony of feral cats, and multiple critters thrown away because they were “too old”. EVERY CRITTER THAT COMES HERE TO LIVE IS SPAYED OR NEUTERED AT INTAKE. ALL RECEIVE VACCINE BOOSTERS AND AN INITIAL NEW CRITTER VET APPOINTMENT.
Please help us to be able to continue saving the lives of those that have been thrown away, or lost their humans that passed away or were unable to care for them any more.
NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL AND ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
Donations can be phoned or mailed directly to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794. They will take your information and we will send you a tax receipt.

                                                       ***CHAOS - DUMPED IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE WITH KIDNEY FAILURE***

 

Who dumps a 13 year old Chihuahua miles from houses and civilization, down an untraveled dirt road? This is where little Chaos was found mid May 2022. When we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) saw him on Facebook we immediately responded, and went to get him.

It was obvious that he was both dehydrated and not well. He was trying to be brave, but his little body was sick long before he was dumped in the middle of dirt, cows, no grass and no water. Dumped like garbage.

The first blood panel that was run showed that Chaos was in major kidney failure. We knew that

dehydration can cause this, and so we waited patiently over the next few days hoping that his IV

fluids and medications would start to turn him around. Day 4 at the Vet he ate a couple bites, but

couldn’t muster the energy to really eat.

We always visit the critters that we have at the Vet as it seems to make a huge difference in their

desire to survive. With each visit Chaos seemed to understand that although he had been left at

the hospital, he hadn’t been thrown away again. We could see hope in his eyes.

Today is day 5 at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic for Chaos. His bill so far is over $800. If he survives he will be on a specific kidney diet for the rest of his life. We can do that. It’s what we do.

 NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL!! WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT THE CRITTERS THAT COME TO US, AND SO HAVE NO INCOME FROM THEM. We are a 501c3 non profit animal sanctuary and all donations are tax deductible. You can mail or phone a donation to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave, Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794. Or donate through PayPal at the top of this page. 

UPDATE FRIDAY 5/27: We brought Chaos home two nights ago. So he is no longer on IV fluids. His blood levels were lowering each day but were still high But he still was not eating. He is taking a medication to coat any possible ulcers caused from his ongoing kidney failure. Yesterday we added Royal Canin liquid kidney diet. He is able to hold down 5ml at a time without vomiting. We are giving him this every 2 hours as he continues to hold it down. Please keep little Chaos in your thoughts and prayers. He didn’t deserve to be dumped like garbage. None of them do…

UPDATE FRIDAY 5/27 3:00. His little body couldn’t do it. Chaos is at Rainbow Bridge. I have no words…

***ROCKET MAN - BACTERIAL INFECTIONS***

*****LADYBUG, 14 YEARS OLD AND DUMPED ON THE STREET*****

*****JACK - ABUSED BY OWNER*****

March 2022. Jack, (Previously named Demon by the owner that abused him), finally received his leg amputation March 16, 2022. If you missed his story in our earlier posts on Facebook we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) were asked by the Tacoma Pierce County Humane Society in Western Washington to take Jack (previously named Demon) after he had been abused by his owner. The problem was that they couldn’t release Jack to us until the case went through the court system. Jack’s

abuse case went to court in Tacoma, and his owner subsequently lost an appeal. At that time we rushed

over Snoqualmie Pass to bring Jack “home”.

For many months Jack dragged a leg that was entirely useless. He was given two antidepressants

twice daily to combat his fear. We have weaned him off of those meds and he is now a happy, well

adjusted boy.

When we picked him up from Pioneer Veterinary Clinic after his amputation he came bounding into

the waiting room and jumped into Dale’s arms, whining sounds of joy and gratitude. It never ceases

to amaze me how resilient animals are after such major surgeries. He dashed across the parking lot

(on a leash) and made a huge jump into the back of the car.

Thank you so much to everyone that donated to Jack’s GoFundMe when we ran it. You graciously covered his surgery expenses!! Further donations toward his recovery and the care of our other critters can be sent to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave, Moses Lake, Wa 98837 (509) 765-6794

March 2022  As I stood at the office to Grant County Animal Outreach I listened to the soulful mourning of the small Border Collie wandering between the desks, squatting to pee, drinking water, then resuming her mournful wandering. I’m told that she was seen being turned out of a car in a town 40 miles away, where she was picked up and brought to the shelter.

She was terrified. The staff named her Lady. I took her home to foster her for the required 3 day hold

with the understanding that we (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) would adopt her if nobody claimed

her.

Everyone knew that nobody would.

Her teeth were in excellent condition which is unusual for a dog this age. Her coat was clean with no

mats and her nails were trimmed. She had been someone’s companion. Perhaps her owner passed

away and nobody wanted to care for the deaf and blind girl who peed constantly. LadyBug cried and

shook in fear.

We put a ThunderShirt on her which calmed her almost immediately. ThunderShirts have the same effect as swaddling a baby. Within 24 hours she claimed a Kuranda Bed as her own , which surely soothed her old bones. She loves being led outside by leash to the grass and is learning the route without bumping into much any more.

LadyBug’s Vet exam showed a major heart murmur but her lungs were good. No heart meds needed at this time. BUT her bloodwork revealed that she has major diabetes. This was my fear as I watched her drink and pee. She is now comfortable living with us and is getting two insulin shots daily to help control her diabetes.

If you would like to help with the cost of monthly insulin, and blood exams three times monthly for LadyBug donations can be mailed or phoned to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794.

Rocket Man came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) during the last week of March 2022 as his humans were no longer able to care for him. As antibiotics were not working for him a culture was taken and sent out to the labs. The results came in yesterday (2 1/2 weeks later) and showed that 4 different bacteria had grown. One of the bacteria doesn't respond

to Clavamox, so the doctors are adding a second antibiotic to his regimen starting today. The second

antibiotic must be closely regulated, or it can cause detached retina in cats. Rocket Man has to be seen

at Pioneer Vet once a week for quite some time to monitor this infection. He's a good boy, but it is a

two-person job twice daily, with him wrapped tightly in a towel, to administer his oral meds, eye meds,

and wipe down his open sores to ensure they remain open and draining. He has a strong will to live

and can make it through this long ordeal with the proper meds and care. If you would like to help with

the cost of Rocket Man’s continuing care donations can be mailed or phoned to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic,

827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 or through PayPal,

No donation is too small. Every $5 adds up!!. This is our 26th year in Moses Lake. We are a 501c3 non-profit animal sanctuary for elderly, abused and disabled animals of all kinds. WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT AND SO HAVE LITTLE TO NO INCOME FROM THE CRITTERS THAT LIVE HERE. All donations are tax deductible. Thanks so much!!

                                                                              *****FOR THE LOVE OF QUILLE*****

The first sighting of Quille was approximately February 12, 2022 high atop the Vantage hill at the Grandpa Sets The Horses Free rest area. Two dogs - both full of porcupine quills. I don’t know who  was able to get the first dog. Apparently it came right to them. It was safe. The second dog ran. 

I became aware of the situation one week later. Several rescues, from Yakima (about 60 miles away west), Soap Lake (50 miles east), Moses Lake (50 miles east), and Olympia (175 miles west) were coming as they could to try to catch and rescue the dog that I chose to call Quille.

Bob from Res Q Angels in Yakima spent several nights at the rest area over the weeks following, hoping, to no avail. 

She would come close enough to take food, but not close enough to touch. She wouldn’t go into a trap.

She avoided catch poles and drop nets. Her face was swollen with porcupine quills and my heart was breaking

for her. 

 

During my first week the weather was 6 degrees at night, warming into the mid 20’s during the day. I tried to arrive by 8:00 a.m. before tourists and passers by stopped to walk through the sage brush to look at and photograph the Columbia River Gorge hundreds of feet below.  People would see Quille and feed her remnants of food from their pockets and cars. As they tried to get closer she ran. Across the endless span of sagebrush. Some would follow her, thinking they could coax her and catch her. This only drove her further away until she would eventually cross the I90 highway. Sometimes she crossed where there was a median. Sometimes they followed. When they gave up and left she crossed back to “her” side of the freeway and eventually wandered back to the rest area where there would be more people, more food, and more attempts at rescue. 

Throughout the days that turned into weeks we, the rescuers, learned her routine. She claimed the Vantage rest area as “home” because this is where she would have been dumped. By her owner. She returned there, as dogs always do, waiting for her beloved owner to return for her. Surely they would. Surely it was a mistake that they left her there. Surely…

 

Early into the rescue she began to be sighted in the area of George. About 12 miles east. As rescuers we learned her routine. She would sleep at the Vantage rest area and then travel EVERY DAY to George (12 miles) and another 3 miles to Exit 151 and the Shell station. She gladly accepted tidbits of food from both passers by and rescuers, but nobody could touch her. Then she headed back 15 miles along I90 and the Frontage Road to the rest area. Surely her owner would come back where he left her. She needed to be there when he arrived. Surely..

 

As Sheri and Keith, two hard core rescuers said, the should haves and what ifs are haunting. We individually would name her, Maria "Quincy", Sandi "Quille", Bob "Valentina", Sheri and Keith "Mustang" and another would call her "Porky". 

 

Without exaggeration the above rescuers drove thousands of miles over a several week period. Trying. Hoping. Praying. For Quille. 

 

The gas stations would call when she was there or sighted. One of us would scramble to get there before she left. But even when we did she couldn’t be caught. 

 

On one early morning arrival I sat with her for about 4 hours. I dispersed bits of canned food which she

gratefully accepted. I talked. She listened.  Once the tourists started to arrive at about 10:30 she took off.

They, too, fed her. And followed her. Across the sage brush, onto the freeway. I knew the routine and knew

my chances for that day were done. 

 

March 1st, 2022. I sit overlooking the Gorge below on a warm, sunny morning. The snow was completely washed away by yesterday’s rains and the warming weather. I am sitting in the spot where she has always been seen. Always accepted food from people. Always kept out of reach. The cans of unopened food that I left 3 days ago are untouched. She hasn’t been here. There have been no sightings from the other rescues for several days. This will be my last visit. My heart is broken. I pray that she trusted someone in her miles long journeys from here to there and back. I pray that wherever she is, dead or alive, that she is at peace. If she is alive I pray for a happy

home. If she is dead I pray that her Soul is flying free. I pray she knows that there were humans that cared. I pray. 

March 5, 2022 3:00 - Maria and her husband from Olympia were the first to see her on February 12th. Today

they came for "one last try", and closure. And they found her. Deceased. We all know that she is at peace now.

We know she is running free and happy again at Rainbow Bridge. There are a lot of tears today being shed by

a lot of people who were involved in the search and rescue for the past 3 1/2 weeks. Quille was probably

loved more than she has ever been loved in her life. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all

creatures here below. We will remember you forever Quille.

***HAWKEYE - IN THE SNOW WITH EYE HANGING OUT***

During the first week of February 2022 we were driving out of town and happened to see two cats in the snow, along the side of the road.  We stopped immediately and picked up both cats, placing them in the carrier that we always carry in the car. The smaller kitten had one eye hanging

out, and the second cat, which was a little older, had blood coming from its mouth, and was unable to close his mouth. We headed to our

Vets at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake.                                 It was determined immediately that the little kit with the eye hanging

out would need an enucleation (eye removal)                                      but the surgery would need to wait about a week as he also had an

upper respiratory infection. We named this                                          little one Hawkeye. The second, somewhat older cat was in far worse

condition. Although we initially thought that                                         his jaw was broken, it wasn't. His mouth was so terribly inflamed that

it was bleeding. The doctors thought it was                                          caused by a caustic substance that he had gotten in his mouth. He was

immediately admitted to the hospital, where                                        he remained for 5 days, with his blood work showing extreme kidney

failure. We named the black kitty Jett. Jett is                                         currently at home with us receiving daily antibiotics and eating

KD canned kidney diet for cats. After a week at home Hawkeye returned to the hospital for his eye removal and neutering.  He continues

to do well and is a very happy little man.                                           Once Hawkeye is old enough he will be transferred to one of our rescue partners to be 

adopted out. We do not adopt out and                                                 trust one of our rescue friends to find safe and loving homes for the critters that come to

us that are two young and healthy                                                       to spend the rest of their days with us. We receive not compensation of any sort for this, 

other than knowing that these little                                                     souls are able to find a forever loving home of their own. This is why we depend on your

donations to Pioneer Veterinary                                                           Clinic in Moses Lake, WA to enable us to continue doing the work that we do.

***BLINKIE - FOUND WITH ONE EYE MISSING***

When the call came in from another rescuer about a cat that had been found in Quincy, WA - about 30 miles from us - that was missing an eye and was in need of rescue, we told them that we would accept the cat immediately. The cat was brought to us in Moses Lake, and an appointment was made with Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. We named the kitty Blinkie, and her appointment was set for the next day. 

Once the doctors examined her, the surgery was set for the next day. Surgery was completed and Blinkie came home the same

day. As the surgery was more complicated, her spay was scheduled for several weeks later, while she recovered from they eye

surgery. Meanwhile, we began her vaccinations.                                 Blinkie remained with us for several months so that we could

complete her spay surgery, and ensure that all                                    vaccinations were given.  When all was completed Blinkie 

went to Hands and Paws in Moses Lake to be                                       adopted into her forever home.  When a critter comes to us

that is too young to spend the rest of their life                                       with us, we place them with one of the rescue partners that

we know and trust, to be adopted into their                                           forever home. We receive no compensation of any kind for

this. We do not adopt out, and we trust our                                            known rescue partners to find a loving, safe home for these 

beloved critters.

                                                                         BIG MAMMA - LIVING WITH A HUGE TUMOR
Big Mamma came to us from a local shelter in October 2021 where she had been living for over 6 weeks. As you can see, she had a HUGE tumor on her belly, as well as several mammary tumors. Her new dog exam at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic revealed that the large tumor was indeed cancerous. Within a few days she was back at Pioneer Vet to have the large and small tumors

removed.  Big Mamma came home after an extensive surgery to remove the one very large cancerous

tumor on her belly, and several smaller mammary tumors. She’s looking pretty sleek, don’t you think.

It will be a two week recovery for her, but she will be so much healthier! UPDATE: Two weeks have

shown great improvement from her surgery, but she is looking at another

two weeks for full recovery.

lf you would like to help with her surgery costs please call donations to

Pioneer Veterinary Clinic (509) 765-6794. No donation is too small.

Thanks so much!!

                                                                              MAX - OUR WONDERFUL DISABLED LLAMA
Max came to us October 16, 2021 from a wonderful man who had been caring for him after his owner died. Max has had a hard life. We believe his left front leg was broken at one time. He cannot use it. His right front foot is in terrible, painful condition. We gave our llama chute away 3 years ago, but were able to devise a sling to lift him so Dale could trim his feet a little. Max is old, but he seems to know we llove llamas, and is very patient. We ordered him a coat for the winter as his wool is sparse. Our large animal vet, Dr. Sruti Sreerama came November 3 for his exam, vaccinations and                               pain meds.  Max has lots of straw to lay on in his little barn, and goats to keep him company.He got his
                            West Nile and Covexin vaccines. Boosters in a few weeks. She thinks he had a dislocation in the shoulder area a long time ago
                            that wasn't treated. She also thinks he was born with a form of dwarfism which would explain some of his "deformities".
                            He's in good health and we have Bute to give him for pain during the very cold days when winter arrives.

                                                                PUMPKIN - HIT BY A CAR AND LEFT TO DIE

Pumpkin was rescued off of the road late September 2021 after being hit by a car and dragging himself to the side of the road. Luckily he was seen by a member of Lost and Found Pets of Grant County  and he was taken to Pioneer Vet in Moses Lake, where it was determined that he has multiple fractures and displacement of his pelvis, and a fracture of his sacrum. Due to his extensive injuries L+FPOGC asked us to take him.  He is now with us at Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary. He is unable

to urinate on his own and needs his bladder expressed 3 times daily. The good news is that he feels deep pain

in both rear feet, which indicates that he is not paralyzed, and that there is hope for him being able to regain

the use of his bladder. Dr. Morrison told me we are looking at 3-5 months minimum before we will know the

outcome.  He came to us (Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary) for his many months of rehab, medications, and

expressing his bladder 3 times every day. It’s what we do to try to save a life. Pumpkin is a good boy and puts

up with being manhandled for his bladder even though it must be extremely painful due to his broken pelvis.

He will be making frequent visits to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic to monitor his progress in pelvic and bladder

conditions. If you would like to donate toward his care all donations can be mailed or phoned to Pioneer

Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave, Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 for Daze of Camelot Animal

Sanctuary. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL! We are a 501 c 3 non-profit animal sanctuary. WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT AND HAVE NO INCOME FROM THE CRITTERS WE CARE FOR. All donations are tax deductible.  you would like to donate Thank you so much!!

HOPE FOR HOPE

Hope came to us from the local animal shelter during the last week of September 2021. She came from a drug house. Hope had been living in agony with rotten teeth for years. She has horrible sores around her eyes, nose and paws from her living conditions. She is estimated to be about 8 years old. Hope had an emergency dental at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic where they removed 23 teeth. She will be on antibiotics and medicated creams and shampoos for some time. The current charges for Hope’s medical care are $1,000. 

BUT…Dr. Maiers was contacted by AN ANONYMOUS DONOR, who has pledged to match all donations made to Daze of Camelot between now and November 1, 2021 UP TO $5,000!!

We are a 501 c 3 animal sanctuary for elderly, abused and disabled animals of all kinds. WE DO NOT ADOPT

OUT AND HAVE NO INCOME FROM THE CRITTERS THAT COME HERE. Our Vet bills run on the average of

$20,000 every year because of the type of critters that call us home. Eyes are removed, legs amputated,

seizures, kidney and heart failure, cerebellar hypoplasia, cancer, paralyzed and in wheel chairs (we have 3

right now), just to name some of what we deal with daily. 

If you are able to donate ANY AMOUNT it will be doubled by the anonymous donor. No amount is too small!! 

If you prefer, donations can be mailed or phoned to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake,

WA 98837 (509) 765-6794. Please indicate your donation is for Daze of Camelot. 

We are a 501 c 3 non profit animal sanctuary, and all donations are tax deductible. 

This is a huge opportunity to help us lower our bill, so that we can continue to help the elderly, abused and disabled. What you see on Facebook and on our website www.dazeofcamelot.org is only a small portion of those that we help, and that call us “home”.  Thank you so much.   Or donate here www.PayPal.me/dazeofcamelot

                                                                                     ZIGGY STARDUST

Perhaps you saw him on Facebook August 2021. He was being fed by several neighbors in the area. He wanted to go inside their houses, but wasn't allowed to because of his condition. Nobody stepped up to help him. We tried to get him one evening,  but he took off. We returned the following morning as we knew he was used to being fed and  were able to get him with a net. Loading him into a cat carrier we immediately took him to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic for emergency care. We named him Ziggy Stardust.

 

Because of his condition we knew we needed to start with testing for FIV and FELV (Feline Aids and

Feline Leukemia). Both tests came back positive, but that didn't stop us. We have cats that are FIV

and/or FELV positive. They can live for years and can live with other cats as long as they don't fight

and inflict wounds. Because his condition was quite bleak we also ran a blood panel. It wasn't good.

His red blood cells were so low that he would require a blood transfusion at WSU. The problem was

because of his FIV and FELV the blood transfusion would probably not help him. It was also

determined at that time that he was bleeding out internally - perhaps from a tumor.  At this point we

knew there was nothing we could do to help or save Ziggy Stardust. The doctors told us he would

probably not survive the next 48 hours. 

                                                We were absolutely heartbroken, but we knew this: the last, and most loving thing you can do for                                                          your companion animal is to set them free when it is time. It was time. We held Ziggy Stardust in his                                                    last moments, and whispered promises of Rainbow Bridge and a new and healthy body waiting for                                                      him as he crossed through the veil. At one time Ziggy Stardust was a big and beautiful boy. Siamese                                                    we believe. Someone dumped him. We don't know that he will be waiting for US at Rainbow Bride. We                                                  don't know that he will be waiting for the owners that dumped him. But we do believe he will be                                                            waiting for the people that fed and talked to him during his last sick and lonely days outside. It is times like this that we are sadly reminded "you can't save them all". But we can try.

                                                                         ALYCE - SHOT AND LEFT TO DIE

We saw the picture of Alyce on Facebook, August 2021posted by someone about 40 miles from us. The photo showed a sad looking kitty, dragging her front leg. Everyone wanted to help, but nobody was able to. We asked if someone was able to pick her up, so we would come get her. Two kind souls in the town did indeed get her, and met us half way to make the exchange.

We immediately took her to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, here in Moses Lake. Her leg was x-rayed to show that

the leg was broken. SHE HAD BEEN SHOT, WHICH CAUSED THE BONE BREAK, AND BULLET FRAGMENTS

REMAINED INSIDE, AND CAN BE SEEN ON THE X-RAY. Due to the severity of the break, and the remaining

bullet fragments it was determined that her leg needed a full amputation.

                                         The amputation was completed and Alyce came home to us with antibiotics and pain

                                         medications. She will live out her life here, inside, and never have to worry about her

                                         safety again. She is a loving girl, is healing well, and seems very appreciative of her

                                         safety and regular meals.

                                         If you would like to help with the medical bills for Alyce ($1,400) please mail or phone your donation to

COOKIE - PARALYZED AND LIVING OUTSIDE

 We received a call from Cookie's owner in Mid May 2021. He didn't know what happened to her, but  3 year old Cookie had become paralyzed in her rear end several weeks prior to contacting us.  Cookie was living outside, and her owner was unable to care for her. We immediately left to pick her up.

 

Upon arriving we noticed that she was not only living outside, but living on gravel. Her back legs were raw

from dragging along the gravel and dirt, as was her tummy. Nevertheless, she met us with a smile.

Cookie is a small girl, and is now living inside. She loves to go out on the grass, where she drags herself

happily along. Cookie is now one of three permanently paralyzed dogs that call Daze of Camelot Animal

Sanctuary home. Cookie is also scheduled to be spayed September 1st.

 

Meanwhile, it was time to order Cookie a wheelchair!

 

For over 20 years we have purchased our doggie wheelchairs from Eddie's

Wheels in Massachusetts. They are expensive, but they are absolutely the best

and last forever.  

 

It took about 3 weeks for Cookie's wheels to arrive once we took all of her

measurements and submitted them to Eddie's Wheels. But we knew the wait

would be well worth it! Once we placed her in her wheels she was off and

running in less than 3 minutes! Look at that smile! As the weather cools this fall we will be taking Cookie for more outdoor walks.

Our weekend trip to visit friends in Spokane found us returning home with a week old KuneKune piglet that was the runt of the litter. At one week of age she was one fifth the size of her siblings. What this meant in regards to her survival

was that at any moment there would not be room to eat on one of mamma’s teats. If she didn’t get crushed,

she would starve.

                                       The two young girls loved her, and the family decided to send Precious home with us, where she could                                                          be bottle fed and nurtured until she was strong enough to return to Spokane, and the little girls that love

                                        her. Everyone understands that Precious might not make it, but she is a fighter.

 

                              Bottle feedings are every 3 to 4 hours until she learns to eat from a bowl, gets bigger,

                              and is able to last longer between feedings. Precious lives inside in a large straw filled

crate with her stuffed bear. At night she has a microwaveable heating disc under her straw. We have a

small, covered wire pen outside where she is enjoying the warm weather during the day.

LIBBY - THROWN AWAY AT 14 YEARS OLD

Precious1.jpg

PRECIOUS THE PIGLET

THROWN AWAY AT 14 YEARS OLD - meet little Libby. We were contacted this morning (5/4/21) by a shelter that received a 14 year old cat from the owner two weeks ago, stating they were moving and couldn’t take her. It’s a pretty well known fact that people don’t go to a shelter in search of elderly animals to adopt.

As the days passed it became apparent that Libby was not only in her golden years,

but also suffered from mild seizures. We loaded up a carrier and went immediately

to pick Libby up and bring her home.

She has an appointment tomorrow at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake for

bloodwork, which will show if her organs are healthy enough for seizure meds.

We currently have 4 critters that require seizure medication twice daily. We are hoping

that little old Libby will be healthy enough to take these meds also!

UPDATE: Libby's bloodwork came back as unsatisfactory. It appears that she is also

in kidney failure. She is feeling much better now that she is taking seizure meds, AND

she is now eating specialized food for kitties with kidney failure. We are hoping that

her time with us will not be too short - meanwhile, I think she knows she is loved!

BELLAMARIE - SHOT IN THE HEAD 3 TIMES BY OWNER

March 26, 2021. The white shepherd was in our yard in the evening. Dale recognized her and loaded her up to return her to the house we had always seen her at - always tied to a tree, throughout the snow and cold - ONE MILE AWAY. The owner asked Dale if he wanted her. He said he “shot her in the head 3 times 2 weeks ago with a .32, but she just wouldn’t die. “ Then said he was going to take a hammer to her head. Dale had him sign a release form, and brought her back home.

 

We immediately called Pioneer Veterinary Hospital, told them that she appeared okay, but we wanted

an X-ray of her head. While at the Vet one of the employees recognized the dog, and said they had seen

her running down the road, covered in blood, a couple weeks ago.

 

Her exam showed that she is blind in one eye now, and deaf. She is only one year old. She is a loving

girl that craves attention, but cries when her head is touched. She is safe, loved, and will never have to

fear for her life again.

 

Her X-rays show that aside from losing sight in one eye and losing her hearing, she has a fragmented

disc. X-rays are being sent today to a radiologist for further evaluation.

 

This is what we do at Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary. This is why for 25 years we have always asked

that all donations be sent DIRECTLY to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837

(509) 765-6794. Your donations go directly to saving the critters that come here to live out their lives

NO HOME AND A BROKEN LEG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary was called during the last week of February 2021 by an elderly couple that had rescued an older cat from their neighborhood. They thought that she (Mamma Kitty) might have a dislocated leg, but were unable to take her to a Veterinary hospital. Mamma Kitty was lying in their living room when we went to pick her up. As soon as she was lifted I knew we were not dealing with a dislocation, as her leg was dangling. We immediately transported her to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic where x-rays were taken and an exam was performed.

It was determined that the leg was broken, and had been broken for an extended period of time.

Because of this, it was not possible to set the leg, but amputation was required. In addition it was

discovered that she had a mammary tumor and an upper respiratory infection. Her leg was set in

a temporary splint, and she was sent home with us to take antibiotics for a week prior to surgery

due to her respiratory infection. Surgery was performed on March 3, at which time her leg was

amputated, the mammary tumor was removed, and she was spayed. She is now home with us,

and recovering well. The cost of Mamma Kitty's surgery was $799.50.

If you would like to donate toward Mamma Kitty's surgery, please phone or mail a donation to Pioneer

Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 and let them know your

donation is for Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL!!! All donations are tax deductible as we are a 501c3 Non-Profit. Thank you so very much!!!

A CUPCAKE FOR CHRISTMAS 2020

Christmas is always an emotional time at Daze of Camelot. It is the time of year that many people take their "ancient ones", their older critters that have lived with them for years and years - to the shelter. They trade them in on a "newer model", a puppy, kitten, or simply a younger animal. It is the time of year that we head out in search of those that have been dumped in their greatest time of need - their golden years. 

This year we didn't have to go far. A local shelter contacted us to say that an older man had to release his

precious dog, Cupcake, as he was no longer able to care for her because of his age and underlying health

issues. We left immediately to pick her up.

Cupcake is said to be 12 years old, although our guess is she might be a little older.  Her new dog exam at 

Pioneer Veterinary Clinic revealed that she was in good health for her age, albeit a little overweight, well

about 5 pounds overweight, which would mean she needed to lose about half of her existing weight!

Our guess is that Cupcake ate with her beloved human at mealtime. Although her heart and lungs were in 

good shape, her mouth was not. It appeared that all of Cupcake's remaining teeth would need to be 

removed as her mouth was in bad shape. Her dental was scheduled for February 1, 2021. 

If you would like to help with Cupcake's dental costs please mail or phone a donation to Pioneer Veterinary 

Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794. All donations are tax deductible, and NO 

donation is too small. Thank you so very much!!!

MEET BUG!!!

 

 

Bug came to Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary in September 2020 from another rescue at the tender age of about 9 weeks old. She came to us as a kitty with severe cerebellar hypoplasia or CH (bobble head), but was also quite sick. Once we received her we immediately made an appointment for her with Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake. Looking at her Vet records from the previous Vet, our Veterinarians decided to look much further into Bug’s symptoms. A specialized blood test was run, and it was determined that Bug not only had CH, but also very severe herpes, bordatella, and mycoplasma. She was placed on several specially ordered medications, that would be required for several months.

Truly curing a cat of mycoplasma infection is very difficult, and most protocols involve the use of long-term courses of alternating antibiotics for many months.

Feline hemotrophic mycoplasmosis (FHM) is the name of a relatively uncommon infection of cats.

In the past, this disease was called feline infectious anemia or hemobartonellosis. With this disease,

the cat's red blood cells are infected by a microscopic blood bacterial parasite. The subsequent

destruction of the infected red blood cells results in anemia.

As of December, Bug remains on medications that appear to be really helping her. She visits her

doctor at Pioneer Vet every 30 days and is growing and getting healthier. Her cerebellar hypoplasia

is not curable, and she will remain wobbly forever. We have 3 other CH cats and one CH dog that have

been with us for many years. As Bug continues to feel better she is becoming more active, and loves

snuggling. She has even started playing with her sister kitties.

If you would like to help us with Bug's medical expenses, donations can be mailed or phoned to Pioneer

Veterinary Hospital, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794. All donations are tax deductible, and no amount is too small. Thank you so much!!!

BLU - IN THE DRIVEWAY WITH A COMPOUND FRACTURE

Early November 2020 brought an unwelcomed sight to our front yard. Standing in the driveway was

a grey cat with a dangling leg. 

Picking her up for an inspection revealed a bone sticking out of the skin - a compound fracture!! 

We immediately loaded her into a carrier and called Pioneer Veterinary Clinic to advise them that

we were on our way. 

Due to Covid-10 restrictions we were not able to go into the clinic, and so dropped the kitty off with them, knowing that she was in excellent hands.  A short time later Dr. Morrison called to say that Blu

(because of her color) would require a complete amputation of her rear leg. The muscle had completely deteriorated and there was no way to save the leg. Surgery would begin in a couple hours, and Blu would be ready to go home the following morning. 

Blu is an amazing girl with a quiet and loving temperament, easily taking her pain meds and accepting lots of petting. The total costs for surgery and care are $1,500. 

If you would like to donate toward the care of Blu, please do so by calling Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, (509) 765-6794 or mailing a donation to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837. Let them know that the donation is for BLU at Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary - or donate above. No donation is too small, and all donations are tax deductible. Thank you so very much!!!

Meet Bolt - Paralyzed and Can't Urinate

 

 

Bolt came to Daze of Camelot from the Seattle area in July 2020. Nobody is really sure what happened to

him, but he came home limping one day, and then lost the use of his back legs. His owners rushed him to

an emergency clinic, where surgery was performed on his back. Unfortunately, the surgery did not give him

back the use of his legs, AND he was then unable to urinate by himself and needed his bladder manually

expressed 3 times a day.

 

When Bolt's owners contacted us we had them fax his records to our Vets at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in

Moses Lake for review. We were hoping that intense physical therapy would help to restore the use of his

bladder. But the doctors didn't think so.

 

We then had them contact WSU and fax his records to their veterinary hospital, hoping they would be able

to recommend treatment to restore his bladder. But the answer was the same - it wasn't going to happen.

After all avenues had been researched, we agreed to bring Bolt to Daze of Camelot to live out his life. A

wheelchair was ordered from Eddie's Wheels (the only company we use for critter wheelchairs), and they

arrived July 14th.

 

The photos show Bolt walking without his wheels, and the "new and improved" Bolt, who will be able to run

like the wind with his wheels on. His bladder will need to be manually expressed 2-3 times a day for the rest

of his life. But that's what we do here, save lives! He is in no pain, and is a very happy and loving boy!

Atreyu - Severe Seizures and Blind

Atreyu is a young kitten who is only about 8 weeks old. He was found huddling under a school bus about 3 hours from us June of 2020.  During the first week that his rescuers had him, they noticed that he appeared to be blind as he travelled primarily along walls. But the most unsettling discovery was that he began having seizures. Taking him to their local vet provided no assistance, and there appeared no place else to turn - so they called us. The following day we travelled to pick him up, and took him immediately to our Veterinarians at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake. During the 3 hour trip back to Moses Lake Atreyu had 3 seizures, and they were major seizures. He was admitted to the hospital, hooked up to IV fluids and started on a regimen of phenobarbital to help control the seizures. A full blood panel was run, and it was determined that his electrolytes were quite low. As the next few days passed further blood panels revealed that his electrolytes were returning to normal - but the seizures continued. 

 

Although his seizures have become less frequent, he is still having them. Because of his young age

and blindness there is a possibility that we are dealing with a brain tumor. At this point we are continuing

to treat him symptomatically for his seizures. We are hoping that time will allow his doctors to further

adjust his phenobarbital and bring his seizures under better control. Through all of this Atreyu remains

loving and tries very hard to enjoy being a kitten.

LILLY - THROWN AWAY WITH CANCER

We were contacted during the first week of May 2020 about an elderly Chihuahua that had been wandering a neighborhood. A caring resident picked her up, then roamed the neighborhood looking for her owner. No owner was found. After calling us for help, we agreed to take her.

 

We informed the shelter that she was with us, but nobody called them looking for her.

 

 

She appeared to be quite old and had massive mammary tumors, so we headed to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic to see if she was a candidate for surgical removal of the tumors.

 

Before running blood work it was suggested that x-rays should be taken to look at the extent of the tumors. Unfortunately, because the tumors had not been addressed in time the cancer had spread to her lungs, and they were absolutely full of cancer. It was agreed that surgery was not an option, and there was no need for blood screening.

 

We took little Lilly home, with the knowledge that her stay with us wouldn't be very long. A month later we are monitoring her breathing, and eating. She is a lovely little soul that someone threw away, but she knows that she is loved once again.

CASSIE - FERAL NO MORE

Early March 2020, one of the employees where Dale works told him about a little Husky that had been running

close to the Dog Park for a couple weeks. Although nobody was able to catch her, the family was feeding her in

their unfenced back yard.

She would come to eat, but was afraid to be touched.

 

A large live trap was brought in and baited with yummy roasted chicken, trap lever was covered, and the wait

was on. But as is so often the case with feral animals, she was wary of the trap and was able to step over the

lever, get the chicken , and leave. She never went in again.

 

As the family watched her over time they noticed that other dogs that were running loose began to breed her. Not good.
Animal Control came to help and was able to herd her into a neighboring back yard and catch her. She was then taken to the shelter. Once this occurred the family called us again with an update. Knowing the she was feral, and would not be adoptable, we immediately contacted the shelter and were able to take her home the following day. We immediately called Pioneer Veterinary Clinic and she was spayed the following day.

 

All was fine for the following week. But one morning Cassie (the family that was feeding her called her Casserole) was unable to stand up. We immediately picked her up and took her to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. Blood panels and x-rays were taken, both of which showed nothing out of the ordinary. Cassie was unable to urinate on her own, which required her bladder being expressed daily.
As day after day went by she continued to eat small amounts, but was still unable to stand or urinate. The five doctors at Pioneer had never seen anything like these symptoms, but were unwilling to give up on Cassie. They consulted with a neurologist and with the State. The suggested possibility wasn’t good. It was suggested that a possible cause was Paralytic Rabies, otherwise known as Dumb Rabies. If this was the case she would die very soon. But our doctors continued to treat her symptoms and held out hope. It had now been about 10 days.

 

Then came the phone call - Cassie was able to take a few steps on her leash AND she was staring to urinate on her own! Two days later she was walking perfectly and urinating regularly. She was ready to come home, with two more weeks of medication.
We simply cannot express our never ending gratitude and confidence for the doctors and staff at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. They never waver in their compassion and devotion to both animal and owner.

OUR 2019 CHRISTMAS RESCUES

Every Christmas we try to rescue one critter that has been thrown away, or lost its home due to age, disabilities, or loss of its human companion in other ways. 2019 was extreme for us during the rescue process. This year we rescued 5 shelter pets (4 dogs and 1 cat) that had been in the shelter for some time, and were not being looked at due to age, disabilities, or temperament, and one elderly dog that was losing his home.  Two of these rescues need medical attention and one needs to be neutered. If you are interested in helping us with these critters, all donations should go directly to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794  Thank you so much!!!

JINGLES - LEFT IN A BOX ON OUR DOORSTEP

October 2019 - As I opened the front door to go check on some of the critters, I found a covered box sitting at the door. Nobody had knocked. They must have parked along the road and quietly walked down the driveway to place the box at our door. Not the first time this has happened. Not even the dogs had barked. Opening the box, I was horrified to find a kitten, approximately 8-10 weeks old, in horrible condition. Looking at her lying motionless I assumed she was terribly sick or badly injured. When I gently picked her up I saw that her jaw was very crooked, and she looked even worse than I imagined. I loaded her into a carrier and called Pioneer Veterinary Clinic to tell them I was on my way. 

jingles1.jpg

When she was examined it was confirmed that her jaw was indeed broken, and had been so for some time, as the smell of infection had already set in. 

jingles2.jpg

Jingles was admitted to the hospital with the understanding that she would be on IV fluids and antibiotics for at least two days before surgery would be attempted. 

After two days surgery was performed and it was determined that Jingles' jaw was broken in two places - once in the front and once in the back.  She will be at home recovering for 8 weeks, eating only canned food, and will return at that time for another anesthetic to see how her bones are healing. 

WE PROVIDE COMPANION ANIMALS TO RESIDENTS IN NURSING HOMES AND ADULT CARE FACILITIES! Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary has provided residents in adult care facilities and nursing homes with companion animals for several years. The facility contacts us and asks for a dog or cat for a particular resident. We do all the Vet care prior to them going to the facility, and also any Vet care that might be needed while the companion animal is living with his/her human companion. This is a great comfort to many of the residents as they are able to have their "own" critter for as long as they can. We try to provide elderly animals (which we specialize in!), and we also provide them with food if necessary. It is usually with tears of joy that they accept the companion animal into their room, life and hearts. We are very humbled to provide these residents that are in the last stages of their lives with constant companionship.

BUDDY - THEY WERE GOING TO SHOOT HIM

Mid March 2019 we received a call from a man asking if we had room for an older horse. He was being picked on by the other horses, who weren't allowing him to eat, and the man was going to shoot him. Although we were very crowded with horses, we felt we had to help this poor soul. 

The following day we loaded up up the trailer and headed out to take a look. Although his picture doesn't really show his condition, this old man was very thin with all of his ribs showing. In addition to his tremendous weight loss, he was scarred from head to tail with bites from other horses, and deep cuts on all of his legs from being run through fences.  We loaded him up and brought him home.

Unfortunately, putting him in with our other geldings proved unsuccessful, as they didn't allow him to eat. We moved him into an area that held an old mare, Bridgette, and they immediately formed a friendship. Buddy is a very gentle soul, and is enjoying being able to eat hay and senior grain without incident. It will take him awhile to regain his weight, but we are hoping to have that weight back on him before winter.

LOLA - THE 2 A.M. TEXT FOR HELP

The text came in at 2 a.m. March 31st.  A woman had rescued a chihuahua 6 weeks earlier from a very bad situation, and the little dog was pregnant - very pregnant - and had been in labor for over 24 hours. After calling every vet in town, nobody would help her without payment in full, which was not a possibility.  The little dog was her only pet and best friend and she she was frantic. Could we please help!

We explained that we are unable to help with medical bills for others as we don't have funds to do that, and asked her to text me a photo of the little dog, which she did.  The little dog was HUGE with pups, and obviously miserable.  I explained that the only way we could help was if she was willing to sign the dog over to us, and give up ownership.  I also informed her that there was a good possibility that the pups were dead as she had been in labor for so long, and that without a Cesarean section she would likely die too. She immediately replied that the little dog had lived a terrible life, and she just wanted her to live. After calling our vet I texted her telling her to meet me in town asap.  15 minutes later we were loading Lola into my car with massive tears, and I headed to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic where Dr. Brown, the anesthesiologist, and vet tech had already arrived and were waiting. By 3:30 Lola was under anesthesia, and being prepped for surgery (photo), and then moved into surgery. 

Lola had six puppies, with one blocking the canal which prevented her from being able to deliver.  That pup was dead, and the vet tech and I worked furiously to revive the remaining five, at which point they were placed in the incubator.  45 minutes later Lola had been freed of her pups, spayed, and placed in the incubator with her babies. Although she was still quite drowsy she recognized that they were her babies, and reached a paw to them. A very shirt time after the pups were snuggled up and nursing, and by 6:30 a.m. I was headed home with Lola and her brood.  As always, I cannot express my gratitude for Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, and their exceptional staff!!

Because of the very special bond between Lola and her rescuer we would like to return her to her "mom". But we cannot do that unless her surgical bill is paid in full. 

Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary is a 501c3 non profit sanctuary for animals of all kinds. As of 2019 have been serving Moses Lake, WA and the surrounding communities for 24 years. WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT, and so receive little to no "income" from the critters that call us their forever home.Because of the type of animals that live here, elderly, abused and disabled - our medical expenses are very high, and we have always asked that all donations go DIRECTLY to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic.  We receive ELDERLY, ABUSED AND DISABLED animals from Veterinarians and rescues all across the US, Hawaii and even Taiwan.

Won't you please help us pay for the surgery that saved the life of Lola and her babies.  All donations are tax deductible and can be mailed or phoned in to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837, (509) 765-6794. No donation is too small!! Please share far and wide to help us pay for Lola's expenses AND return her to her rescuer.

****ORANGE - DESERTED IN THE DEAD OF WINTER****

.Orange came to Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary the beginning of March 2019. He was left behind to fend for himself when his family moved - in December. During the following 2 1/2 months he lived in sub zero temperatures here in Moses Lake. Two 

neighbors fed him and put out a carrier for Orange to take cover in. We were called during the first week of March, and immediately went to his rescue. Although the wonderful neighbors fed him well, they were unable to bring him insidedue to other animals. Orange was not neutered, HAS NO TEETH AND WAS MATTED TO THE SKIN. 

We immediately took him to Pioneer Veterinary Hospital where he was neutered and shaved. It was determined that he also had PNEUMONIA. He was matted so badly that he was put on pain meds for his skin after shaving, and of course antibiotics. In spite of all this, he is a VERY loving old man. He is inside, eating 2 cans of food plus crunchies every day, and taking his meds like a champ!If you would like to donate toward the care of Orange, please send or phone donations to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave, Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794. No donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible. Thanks so much!

tiny.jpg

Tiny came to us in mid February 2019. Her human mom had passed away, and because her dad suffers from Parkinson's, he had to give Tiny up and move across the country to live with his daughter. Tiny had been adopted by her mom and dad 10 years ago after being attacked by a coyote - the huge scars of which she still bears on her back. Because she was very afraid, and elderly, she was deemed unadoptable. Tiny refused the slightest interaction for the first 10 days. Then, one evening, she simply jumped onto the couch - and it has been smooth sailing for Tiny ever since. Sometimes they just need compassion and time. We give them both.  Welcome home Tiny!

****TINY - SHE JUST NEEDED TIME****

A VALENTINE FOR CHICO

We were contacted by the local shelter in February 2019 regarding a little Chihuahua whose elderly human had passed away. The family didn't want to keep the little old man, which is quite typical As he was having no luck being adopted locally he was transferred to Spokane, in hopes that that thathe would find a home there. But little Chico was so distraught that he was snapping at everyone, and was deemed unadoptable, and returned to Moses Lake.

When we brought Chico home he was indeed untouchable - but that has never stopped us! Within 24 hours he was on Dale's lap, snuggling and getting ear rubs. Thanks Grant County Animal Outreach for giving this little man another chance at life - with us!!!

Lil Bits came to us from a Washington shelter during the first week of October 2018. She had been hit by a car, and then taken to the shelter, who in turn took her to a Veterinarian. X-rays showed that she had a severely broken pelvis, and a badly broken leg. 
Several days later Lil Bits came to us and we immediately took her to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. Her x-rays were sent to a specialist for review due to her extreme injuries. Unfortunately, the news was not good. Because of the type of fracture on her rear leg, the surgery should have been done within a day or two of the accident. It was now too late. 
Lil Bits is resting comfortably at our home, in a small cage, while we wait for her broken pelvis to heal over the following 6-8 weeks. She will never have normal mobility, and likely will be in pain off and on for her life - BUT she is a sweetheart and very loving. 
We will be ordering her a mobility cart from Eddie's Wheels in the very near future, and will be running a GoFundMe to help pay for her existing medical bill and her wheelchair.

MISS MOLLY - DIAGNOSED WITH MEGAESOPHAGUS - NEEDS SPECIAL FEEDING CHAIR

Molly.jpg
CHAIR.jpg

Molly came to Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary about 4 years ago (2015) from a shelter in southern California. She had been used as a bait dog, and had been in the shelter for over a year. With the help of some wonderful people in California, Molly was shipped to us to live out her days. You will never find a sweeter girl!
 

Recently we noticed that every time Molly eats or drinks she vomits. She was losing a lot of weight. 
 

Several days ago (January 2019) we took her to our Veterinarians at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake. She is still there. Blood Panels and xrays were taken, and the xrays were sent to a radiologist. The news wasn't good. Molly has Megaesophagus - and pneumonia (from aspirating food and water into her lungs). I've read about megaesophagus over the years, but have never had a dog or cat with it. 
 

Long story short, Molly cannot eat or drink without vomiting while in a normal standing position. She has to be standing upright on her back legs to eat or drink, and should remain in that position for about 10 minutes after eating or drinking. 
 

There is a special chair called a Bailey Chair that patients can be put in to eat and drink, (which is somewhat like a high chair). We have reached out to a manufacturer of these special medical chairs to ask if they will donate one to our Molly. As most of you know, we do not adopt out, and so have little to no income from the critters that live here - elderly, abused and disabled.
 

Molly remains in the hospital on IV fluids, 2 different antibiotics, and other meds. The first order is to save her from the pneumonia. 
Won't you please donate directly to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Ave., Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 to help us save Molly. The staff will notify us of your donation, and we will send you a tax deductible receipt. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL. Thank you so much!

 

 

 

LITTLE HOPE - KICKED IN THE HEAD AND INTO THE ROAD

 

 

 

 

 

Hope is doing very good after having both eyes removed yesterday.  She was brought to us last Thursday, July 26th, after someone saw a man kick her into the road. We didn't think she would live, but she is a fighter, and yesterday, July 31st, 2018 she had both eyes removed at Pioneer Veterinary Clinic. We brought her home that afternoon, and she was excitedly eating and drinking - and purring up a storm! She will be on antibiotics for the next 10 days, and pain meds for the next 3 days. Her stitches will be removed in 10 to 14 days.

 

The love and trust that these abused animals show after being so horribly abused by humans always amazes us.

 

The  If you would like to donate toward her surgery please phone or mail ANY AMOUNT to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic, 827 Sharon Avenue, Moses Lake, WA 98837 (509) 765-6794 and tell them the donation is for Hope with Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary. All donations are tax deductible. Thank you so much, and please share!

***BUDDY - HIT BY A CAR AND LEFT FOR DEAD***

Buddy came to Daze of Camelot Animal Sanctuary in mid July 2018 when; he had been rescued after being hit by a car in Wenatchee, WA. Buddy suffered a broken jaw, crushed nasal cavity, torn retina in both eyes (which left him blind), and a gaping hole in the roof of his mouth. 

When he came to us he was unable to eat very well, and as food entered the hole in the roof of his mouth it caused him to sneeze the food out of his nose. This also caused a tremendous sinus infection.  Buddy was terrified of being held, in part because he was now blind, and in great discomfort.

His initial visit to Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake revealed the holes in his soft pallet AND hard pallet. His reconstructive surgery was scheduled for a week later. During that week he received antibiotics to help control the infection, and we fed him blended canned food, which he was able to lap up more easily than eating crunchy food. He continued to sneeze out his food as it entered the holes in the roof of his mouth, but it seemed less painful, and he was able to retain a fair amount of the blended food. 

His surgery was July 20th, and he came home that evening. At this time Buddy is doing well. We are currently feeding him AD, and giving him antibiotics and pain meds through a feeding tube inserted in his neck which goes into his stomach. We have done this on numerous critters over the years, and it is a blessing to be able to feed them this way. 

Buddy is expected to make a full recovery, although there is nothing we can do about his crushed nasal cavity at this time. He is beginning to trust us, and looks forward to spending evenings and mornings on the sofa, where he also receives his feedings. 

Buddy's treatment was expensive, but we believe he is worth every penny! He is an absolute love!!

Buddy is healed and ready to start a new life! His nose will never be normal, but he is now able to eat and breath normally.
