Local dog rescue helping dog that requires brain surgery

Coming Home Rescue recently rescued a German Shorthaired Pointer.

Shortly after being taken into the group’s care, it was noted that Leigh was having a loss of balance and tilting her head excessively. An MRI revealed that she had a cyst on her brain. Her only chance of survival is to have surgery to remove it.

The rescue has decided to move forward with the surgery to save her life and is asking for help from the community. The group needs to raise $7,000 to cover both the MRI and the surgery.

Leigh is in a foster home with one of the organization’s compassionate volunteers who will make sure she is loved, safe and ready for her upcoming surgery.

For those interested in making a donation to help save Leigh, please contact the group at 1-888-405-7221, send a check made payable to “Coming Home Rescue” and mail to Coming Home Rescue, PO Box 405, Rockaway, NJ 07866 or make a secure online donation through the website at

In addition, Coming Home Rescue is using a free online fundraising service called “You” to reach the widest audience possible to help raise the dollars needed to cover this expense. Donations through this site can be at
