Save Rheas Life

My name is Patrick Vaillancourt and I am a disabled veteran who has been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression. I was looking forward to getting a service dog but I couldn't wait another year for the process. Instead of waiting, I adopted this beautiful Malamute Husky puppy and call her Rhea. She is 12 weeks old and I have had her for 9 days. I am on disability from the military, meaning I am unable to work. Because of this, I am lucky enough to spend every second with my fur baby. We have created such a strong, magical bond in our short time together, and she has already proven to benefit my mental health. I have created this page because today I found out she has Parvovirus. The virus is deadly if not treated immediately and properly. The treatment is very expensive, more than I make on disability. I am asking for help to cover the cost of the treatment for my baby. She means so much to me and we have not had enough time together. Any amount helps.
