MAGSR needs your help to care for our Senior, Medical, and Special Needs Dogs.

thorson needs your helpThorson is a playful and social guy. He is a big fan of cuddles. But while on the streets, Thorson incurred an injury and has resulted in paraphimosis (fellas, follow the link, you can't not contribute). He will need additional monitoring and a surgery or two in order to heal properly. Multiple surgeries will be expensive, but we know that Thorson is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Thorsen's care as this will not only help us provide him with the support he needs but it will help us help other dogs with medical needs. 

Fluffy Thorson and his little family found themselves alone and in need on the streets of a big city. Fortunately, a good samaritan found the little family, and got them to safety. When no one came to claim this little family, MAGSR stepped in to help them all find safe and loving homes. 

You can make a One-Time Donation or Contribute Every Month so MAGSR can help dogs like Thorson.
