Olivia and Killy have loved each other since the day she was born. They share an unbreakable bond….and diapers.
Margaret with CSADA stepped in for me at a moment’s notice the same day during my 11.5-year-old Doberman’s emergency vet call. Not only did she cooperate with my vet clinic to make sure my dog lived but she also followed through with the diagnostics, aftercare, and even ongoing medication thereafter. Although my dog passed away almost two months later, CSADA gave me that amount of time to treat my dog as comfortably as possible, gave me time to prepare my dog and the family for coming to terms with her condition, and above all, gave me the most precious time with her that no amount of money in the world can buy.
I simply could not ask for a more fortunate ending than what was possible with the help of CSADA. I credit CSADA with the biggest peace of mind I could have possibly received.
A REAL organization that helps REAL life situations in REAL time.

Nala was found in a park as a stray dog with a major injury to her rear leg. It required bandage changes and sedation every few days. Once she healed from that months later we realized she had some special needs. Our shelter veterinarian had diagnosed her with Syringomyelia and Epilepsy based on her symptoms. She would scratch at her face, something we learned was called phantom scratching. She would walk in circles and she seemed to have some vision issues, she also started having seizures. Ideally the Syringomyelia and Epilepsy would be diagnosed through a neurologist and an MRI.
The expected price for all this was close to $3,000. Unfortunately the shelter couldn’t pay for all the testing she needed. She was on numerous expensive medications and her seizures were not completely under control, because of this the chances of her being adopted were slim to none. Because of that I adopted her and started reaching out trying to get funds to be able to afford an MRI and consult with a neurologist. Thanks to CSADA I was able to make an appointment with a neurologist. Unfortunately once we got down to Los Angeles that day Nala was not doing well, we were unable to do the MRI. Although we changed her medications and gave supportive care she continued to decline. She was hospitalized and the veterinarian thought we should run a bone marrow test to check for cancer since her white blood cell count was irregular. The results showed that she had a really bad form of Leukemia and there wasn’t going to be a way to cure it.
Although my baby didn’t make it much longer than that I would never have been able to know what was wrong with her and afford her testing and hospitalization if it wasn’t for this organization.
Because of CSADA I was able to help Nala as much as I could and provide a nice home for the time I had her.

When we found out that our recently adopted senior Chihuahua “Georgie” needed a vital and expensive surgery to continue living a normal life with us, we were very distraught and confused about how to proceed. The help we received from CSADA allowed us to go ahead with the surgery and hopefully give our sweet dog more time to spend with us. Today Georgie is happy and healthy, and we’re so grateful to CSADA for making that possible!

Care for Senior and Disabled Animals (CSADA) would like to extend a very grateful thank you to Brian Liu, a partner at LegalZoom, for his help in preparing and filing the paperwork to create our non-profit corporation. CSADA founder Margaret Camara states, “We could not have done this without them.”
Forming CSADA as a non-profit 501c3 corporation means that all donations made will be tax-exempt and you can claim your donations as tax deductions on your return. All this means that more money goes to helping the animals and not running a business.
So, once again, CSADA would like to say thanks to Brian and LegalZoom and to all of you who have donated money or time to help further the mission of helping animals in need.
“We are forever thankful to Margaret Camara and CSADA for their ongoing financial support for one of our very special rescue dogs, Killey, a small senior Minpin. He is a special needs dog that requires daily medical care as he is completely incontinent and has secondary complications with his bladder that require extra attention and care. Margaret has been his champion for several years now, providing food, diapers and medical care, and ancillary support for his needs. Killey is with wonderful forever fosters and Margaret and CSADA have been a great source of support for them as well with this very special boy.
We are truly grateful and appreciative to this wonderful foundation and its founder, Margaret Camara.

We’re happy to be working with the Forgotten Dog Foundation to sponsor a chihuahua named Killy who has a variety of special needs that we are helping to cover the costs of. This organization is based in Los Angeles-based and is comprised largely of dedicated volunteers who do rescue simply for the love of animals, especially those who are forgotten.
We encourage you to visit their site and support their mission along with ours.
It’s always great to find people who are a joy to work with. This is the case with the Santa Cruz SPCA. We really enjoy what they are doing with their no-kill shelter. Visit their website at SPCASC.org.
We are currently sponsoring a chihuahua named Sally, covering her medical needs. We would encourage you to contact the Santa Cruz SPCA and give them your support so that they can continue with their mission.
