Help fund a life saving surgery for Hank

Want to join us in making a difference? We're raising money to benefit Hank, an American Bulldog rescued by the Cherokee Humane Society. Hank ate a few things that weren't edible to begin with, and has had a lot of difficulty passing them. This has been a two-week ordeal thus far. He was able to pass the gut blockage last week with some help, but something is still making him sick. This afternoon, he will undergo an exploratory surgery to locate and remove the cause.

Hank's Story:

Like many rescues, his is not the happiest of tales. Poor Hank was the third in a line of American Bulldogs that would show up to playcare, then disappear, only to be replaced by a new "Hank" that looked identical to their predecessor. Ours is Hank #3, who was saved by a playcare employee who took the time out to ask the owner what was happening to each "Hank". The owner broke down and admitted their spouse's Jack Russell Terrier was aggressive and would attack "Hank". The spouse would then call Animal Control and claim "Hank" as the aggressor and have him removed, to later be replaced by a new "Hank".

Upon hearing this, the playcare employee took it upon themselves to seek out Hank #3 at a high-kill shelter, rescue him, and bring him to us. In his time with us, we've seen nothing but a sweet, playful, and affectionate young Bulldog. Our fosters loved him so much, they want to adopt him themselves!

Please help us save this gentle pup! Any donation will help make an impact, big or small. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us and, more importantly, to Hank!
