Well everyone, I just got back from the vet. While I was taking care of Baby boy, I was holding fluffer. She gave me a very sad look on her face as she was gasping for air.
I drove up to the vets and had to do the most hardest thing.
She is now at peace with her siblings.
In memory of Fluffer, Baby boy, George, and Precious who I lost to Antifreeze poisoning.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) will make 2 weeks since I found the antifreeze.
I ask if everyone would burn a candle tomorrow at 7pm October 7th and remember the raccoons that were lost this year to Parvo and Antifreeze.

I need your help!
I released all the raccoons but three. Yesterday 2 of them came back. Some one decided to be rude enough and leave anti freeze where we feed the raccoons. My father and I cleaned it up then found the gallon that was used in the forest. We did run several tests and discovered the news a couple of hours ago.
They started walking funny, vomiting and their kidneys are starting to shut down. We gave them as many of fluids as we could 650cc each. The only thing we can do now, is cross our fingers and hope for the best. The antidote medication that they need is very expensive and they do not carry it at the vets office. It can be ordered,however for now I will be up for the next few days. This happened less than 24 hours ago, and it can take up to 36-72 hours for the antifreeze to kill them. So far my vet bill is $227.00 and I must return tomorrow ( Thursday) for more fluids. Because the raccoons are larger and not friendly, we have to gas them in order to give them the IV’s that they need. My heart is broken, for all I went through this year with the parvo. It was hard enough to release them, now discovering the antifreeze.
When I go back to the vets office tomorrow, I will take photos to show everyone. The raccoons look so sad. I will post the photos here.
I need your Help! If you can make a contribution to help pay for this vet bill I would greatly appreciate it.
If you are using paypal please use firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you everyone for your in advance for your help!
Please REPOST this BULLETIN! I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET!

Here at AWBAR we have had a rough couple of days. Losing a total of 10 baby raccoons to this deadly disease called Parvovirus. I have stayed up around the clock with only 2 hours of sleep, making sure the raccoons get the care they need. Although Parvo is rarely treatable, I refuse to lose all the hard work I have put into.
I wanted to say thank you for everyone’s kind words, thoughts, and prayers. We can only take this one day at a time, and will be out of the clear as of July 3rd. It feels such a far way away, im hoping to restore the lives and save as many as I can.
What is Parvo?
Parvovirus is a viral disease of dogs. It affects puppies much more frequently than it affects adult dogs. The virus likes to grow in rapidly dividing cells. The intestinal lining has the biggest concentration of rapidly dividing cells in a puppy’s body. The virus attacks and kills these cells, causing diarrhea (often bloody), depression and suppression of white blood cells — which come from another group of rapidly dividing cells. In very young puppies it can infect the heart muscle and lead to “sudden” death. This same disease is the same as Raccoon Parvo.
You can read more about it here: http://www.workingdogs.com/parvofaq.htm.
I will keep everyone updated! With many tears I’ve shed, I can’t bring the ones I lost, however, I will fight to get the ones sick stronger!
Thank you again for all your support and contributions.
