About the Campaign

She was found on the freeway!

There were three dogs there.

One was already dead.

A woman pulled up and grabbed another.

Marissa Weis helped Bailey.

Marissa was driving on the 210 freeway near the intersection with the 15 freeway, this is near San Bernardino east of Los Angeles. She saw three dogs on the shoulder, and even witnessed some cars swerve in what appeared to be an attempt to hit them! She pulled over, and by the time she got to them another car stopped and took one, which may not have been injured. We are hoping to find that person, so we can find out what happened with that dog. If you now please email info@freeanimaldoctor.org

Marissa quickly determined one remaining dog was deceased. The other, Bailey, was bleeding from the mouth and in shock. Marissa got Bailey in her car and contacted Faith Easdale (a friend) of Dream Fetchers Project Rescue. Faith directed her to a nearby emergency vet.

(Click any photo to open a larger version!)

Bailey was stabilized at the ER. She had a broken jaw, and two breaks on her rear leg and hip. Faith knew these injuries were going to require a bone specialist, and orthopedist, and transferred Bailey to Animal Orthopedic Center in Huntington Beach, CA. Bailey was admitted as an emergency, and the doctor set aside his evening for her surgery.

The procedures went well. Bailey has four pins in her jaw and an attachment on the outside to hold the jaw steady. She has two pins in her leg. This little girl is not even a year old, so we are calling her Baby-Bailey. Jim Ralston has taken her in as a medical foster. She will need daily care and looking after, strict medications, and at least eight weeks of cage rest, which can be very difficult with a puppy!!

This fundraiser:

All donations are for Dream Fetchers Project Rescue to support the cost of the this surgery (almost $5000), the ER visit (over $500) and Bailey’s follow up care, as well as all the rescue work of Dream Fetchers. Faith Easdale dropped everything to spend her entire day driving Baby-Bailey from one vet to the other and waiting on her during surgery. Jim Ralston is now going to spend two months helping nurse her back to health. This commitment deserves support!

We have set up a $3 donation level so everyone can afford to be part of helping Baby-Bailey! It is not just the amount of your donation, it is the donation itself! It shows support and respect for the great work these people do. Please, just a $3.00 donation to support this life saving rescue. And if you can donate more, of course that is welcome, including any specific amount you wish! Thank you 🙂 and as always big WOOOOOOOFS!

    I am donating because recently Minniedog rescue took in a blind, deaf, toothless 18 yr old dog that I had inherited when my sister in law died. She posted your story and the work you do is amazing, caring and selfless. I thank God for people like you and Bea from Minniedog who open their hearts to animals such as this. The least I can do is open my wallet to help.

    My first dog was run over by a garbage truck that was speeding, and knew they ran over my dog and even ran the stop sign to get away fast, as my dad was going after them. He died instantly. I would rather see a loose dog taken to the vet and put to sleep, than see one get run over. I just cannot stand to hear any dog yelping in pain. Thank you for saving this baby.
