Riley's Tumor Removal Surgery

$2,500 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 34 months
We first adopted Riley from the Escondido Humane Society when he was 1 year old. We immediately fell in love with him, and he has been a part of our family for the past 10 years.  Anyone who has met Riley knows what a loving and playful dog he is...and how much he loves bringing his duck to new people in the house to play with him. He has gone through the best and the worst of times with us, and is truly a member of the family. In that time, he stayed next to my mom the entire time she went through chemo and for the duration of my mom's battle with breast cancer; and now it is our turn to stick by his side during his battle with cancer. 

Riley has always been a happy and healthy dog, and has never had any health issues in the past. We recently found out that Riley has a tumor on his left kidney, and it will require him to have surgery and remove the entire kidney to get the tumor out.  Riley's kidney tumor is extremely rare, and only accounts for 2% of tumors found in canines. Because of this, it will require a specialist to do the surgery, which ultimately is going to cost more ($3,000.00). The doctors have given him a good prognosis, and believe that if he has this surgery, he will be back to his normal self.

Currently, the tumor is only affecting one of his kidneys and his blood work is great. We need to get this surgery done while it is still operable.  Any and all donations will be so greatly appreciated by my entire family. Thank you so much!

Riley is recovering from his surgery and will be hospitalized for the next few nights. The surgery went well, and now we just need Riley's other kidney to stay strong for him. Please pray for him. ❤
