Burt's Recovery Fund

Big Burt, the handsome bull mastiff/pit bull mix who has been coming to Doggy Business forever, recently tore his cruciate ligament and needs surgery - and likely some physical therapy afterward. He's been sidelined, and we want to help get him back on his feet! His surgery is pretty spendy (about $4K) and the costs for the physical therapy will be around $1.5K. We'd like to get these funds to Burt's family by the end of February if we can. 

As it would be for most of us, finding $5.5K in a hurry is a huge challenge for Burt's family. We'd like to show them how supportive Portland's dog loving community is, especially those of us who are connected to Doggy Business! Let's band together to help Burt and his family! Burt's friends are really going to miss him!

Meredith and I are going to kick things off with a contribution of $250! Join us and we'll get this covered in no time! Thank you!
