More Information about Gemi

Hi dawgs!

I got approval to post links to Gemi's content pages on, who is also helping with fundraising to enable Gemi to get her surgery. If you donate through, the donation may be tax deductible. You can use a number of different payment methods, too. Be sure to note "GF-Gemi Raymond" in your payment note field.

First, a little background on They are a wonderful organization, completely run by volunteers, that raises and provides funds for animals that need emergency treatment, surgery or chronic-care medications that the owner cannot afford. IMOM's (In Memory of Magic)background/history/mission can be read here.

You can read specific information about Gemi here and daily updates from Randi about how she is doing and progress we're making in her fundraising here.

If you're moved to donate, your donation through the web site may be tax deductible. You can donate here.

If you're hesitant to donate online, you could send a check directly to Pet Crossing Animal Hospital and Dental Clinic. This is not tax deductible, but will go directly to Gemi's surgery and aftercare costs if you put "For Gemi Raymond/Randi Raymond Account" in the memo line of your check. Send the check to:
Pet Crossing Animal Hospital and Dental Clinic
10861 Bloomington Ferry Road
Bloomington, MN 55438
Phone: 952-884-8248

Also, Lake Minnetonka Pet Sitters, where Randi works and how we met her 'cuz she was Gomer & Opie's pet sitter/dogwalker before I lost my job, is doing a fundraiser during July. A portion of any mid-day dog walks or home visits scheduled with Randi during the month of July will be sent to Pet Crossing to help defer the cost of surgery. Contact Jody (info at tonkapetsitters dot com) at LMPS if you want information about scheduling a visit or two.

Thanks in advance for every dollar you can help with. Or, for your thoughts and prayers if that is all you can contribute!
Wuf Ya!
Gomer, Opie and Floyd
(And DogMom, too!)

We hope the money gets raised


We will help and will write something up and link to your post too. It is possible one of our Collie and Sheltie buddies might help too. Dad mumbled about Shelties, Gemini, General Anthony McAuliffe and being a Buckeye. We think maybe he is just nuts.

PS-Tell Gemi we would love to have her sign our guest book.
