Local animal advocate needs community’s help in saving her own dog’s life

A local animal advocate is in need of the community's help – this time to save her own dog.

A local animal advocate is in need of the community’s help – this time to save her own dog.

According to those who know her, Nicole Raymond of Niagara Falls is a selfless individual who does a lot for animals in Western New York. She’s organized fundraisers for local animal charities and collected beds for every animal in the Niagara SPCA during a bed drive in December 2016. Raymond would do anything to help an animal in need and now unfortunately she needs the community’s help for her dog, Wasabi.

Wasabi was recently taken to Orchard Park Animal Hospital for immediate surgery, which left Raymond with a very large vet bill. She was able to pull together $3,400 but needs $4,500 more to begin surgery to save Wasabi.

“Nicole spends her time helping homeless and lost animals. She has never asked for anything in return, but now her and Wasabi need our help,” said Amy Lewis, director of the SPCA of Niagara.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Raymond with expenses –

You may also make a donation to the hospital directly by calling 716-662-6600.
