Duke's Emergency Surgery

This is Duke. He is a plott hound. I adopted him from a local shelter a month ago. He wasn't feeling well so I took him to the Vet. She said he had severe Spontaneous Pneumothorax & a mass in his lung that caused the lung to collapse! He needed surgery right away or he would die! So of course I did the surgery. It was expensive but he's feeling so much better now.

Now the bills are coming in & it's going to be difficult to pay off the $6000 surgery and the many Vet visits, tests & medicine for his aftercare.

How could I not save this sweet baby boy? Of course I had to, no matter the cost. Even though he's been apart of the family for a short time, we are totally in love with him.  He owns us!

I would be so greatful for any & all help to pay for his life saving surgery.  Every little bit helps & is so appreciated!
Thank you!
