Help Save Maddie's Life Fund

We are desperately trying to raise the money needed to help this adorable little  3 month old puppy.  She needs an MRI and a shunt put in to drain the water in her head.  We rescued Maddie from a local Animal shelter along with a brother and a sister. She is half of their size because of her issues.  We brought Maddie to Red Bank Animal Hospital in Tinton Falls NJ for evaluation. The Doctor suspects Hydrocephalus (water on the brain).  What makes this matter worse is that we took out pet insurance on Maddie. They refuse to pay anything to do with this claiming pre exisiting condition. We are on our own. The easy way out would be to put Maddie down. This little girl wants to live. We owe her that. We are reaching out to all of you animal lovers out there that feel the same way. The initial estimate from Red Bank starts at $3345.84 just for the MRI. Then a course of treatment that has yet to be determined. This is going to become very expensive very quickly. We have never had to ask anyone for any kind of help. Times have changed and so has our financial situation. We're setting our pride aside and focusing on the one thing that truly matters: Saving Maddie's life. . Every day that goes by without treatment causes further brain damage.  We are asking for your help.
