Voice of the Voiceless


"Esther's Smile" - Won't you help me get my smile back?

I'm Esther - a petite, elegant, sweet-natured lady. You would never guess it, because I've never made one murmur of complaint, but I need some pretty major dental surgery. It's been really uncomfortable, and I've done my best, but it's time now for the doctor.

My "folks" are the hard-working Animal Defense League, a non-profit spay/neuter group. It would really help if you could donate - just a smidgen - to ease the cost of surgery. If you can, I'll save a very special Esther Smile for you! All donations should be sent to:

Animal Defense League
PO Box 2099
Abingdon, VA 24212
Attn: Esther's Smile

I also have a GoFundMe campaign - please check it out and share. Esther's GoFundMe Campaign.
