Please Help Max Recover!

Sunday March 4th, was an extremely hard and emotional day for my sister Kristin and her family.  While visiting my brother in law Marcus's family in New Hampshire their beloved dog Max was SHOT in the woods behind Marcus's parents house while going for his morning walk with Pa.  The shotgun sprayed pellets throughout Max's body mainly in his chest.  Luckily, Max was able to limp out of the woods to find his dad and get immediate help from the local vet.  Max had to endure emergency surgery to check for any internal damage done by the shotgun and sew up his massive wound.  The surgeon called him a miracle dog because he should not have survived!

My sister Kristin and brother in law Marcus would never ask for help to pay for Max's surgery, so I am doing it for them!  The vet bills are over $5,000 and with my sister home on maternity leave with their 10 week old baby boy - they are in need of some help!

He is such a sweet dog who loves people including his newest sibling Ben.  If you've ever met him you will certainly agree.

Max is super lucky to be alive so please if you are a dog lover, a Kristin and Marcus lover or you're my friend, please consider donating.  Any little bit will help pay for these bills as Max recovers from a legit gun shot wound.

Thank you so much and we will keep everyone up to date on Max's recovery.
