Grateful Paws received a call from a woman whose dog needed life threatening vet care. She just did not have the means or the money to do it.
Once we saw the tumor, we knew it was something that had to be taken care of before it burst. One of our volunteers drove Precious to Hollywood Animal Hospital to be seen by Drs. Alicia Grasso and Tom Sessa. Tests were run and surgery was scheduled.
Hard times and health issues have befallen Precious’s owner – she is on a very fixed income, has a car that doesn't run well and a 13 year old Lab mix with a tumor the size of a soccer ball hanging from her chest. Precious is the love of her life. Months ago, she took Precious to a vet in Pompano and was quoted $700+ for a surgery she could not afford – and who offered no other suggestions.
So she called Grateful Paws. We don’t have the money either… but we do have the means and the manpower to try to get some help for this woman and her dog. After all… Isn't it all about the d-o-g?
THE SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFULLY PERFORMED FRIDAY! The test results will be in on Monday, but they do not believe it was cancerous. Precious is doing great! Already back on her feet - no drain -- and was able to go home with antibiotics, food, flea & tick meds, and pain meds. We haven't seen the bill yet – but we are pretty sure it’s going to be a whopper.
So now WE are asking for a little help from our friends…
If you would like to donate towards this bill, great -- Donations in ALL AMOUNTS are welcome; $1, $2, $5 or more if you can – (Every dollar adds up)
and know that it will go towards her vet bill… as we are all volunteers and no-one receives a salary.
