As many of you know, Suz had been working with the animal shelter to get to know and ultimately adopt Chubbs for the last several days. According to Suz, the dog was finally brought to her home early in the day and had displayed no initial anger toward her or Henry and Olly. Around 6 pm last night, Chubbs grabbed Henry by the throat, causing severe damage to his neck, teeth and sinuses. After a struggle to get him off of Henry, Animal Control was able to separate the two and get Henry to the animal hospital.
Henry has a good chance of survival but only after several mandatory surgeries to repair his neck, mouth and sinuses. He is currently receiving this life-saving care, but as we know Suz has extremely limited financial resources. For many years (since she lived in Portland!) Henry has been her inspiration through every one of the struggles she had faced. Henry means the world to her.
The funds collected will go directly to Henry's recovery, which is happening and will be on-going. She does need to start paying portions of the bills immediately, so the need for our help is urgent.
