Keep Tugboat Afloat

If you're like me, you fell in love with Tugboat the moment he pushed his face up to yours for a good sniff. He doesn't ask for much, just a few moments to sneak up for cuddles on the couch, to "get the bird" in the yard, play a game of fetch at the park, or to a get a good butt scratch. 

Tugboat had a life-threatening accident, and he needs our help.

Earlier this week, Morgan and Jon woke up in the middle of the night from Tugboat vomiting. He refused to eat food the next 24 hours, and wouldn't even hop onto the couch when invited to do so (something completely out of character for Tugboat). After two days spent in the vet hospital with multiple tests and an emergency surgery, the veterinarians found a squeaker toy in his digestive tract that was causing him pain and discomfort for the past two days. Tugboat is recovering from surgery at the hospital for the next week, where the veterinary staff are making sure he doesn't have any complications from surgery.

Morgan and Jon have done everything they can to bring him back to good health, and are so grateful that the obstruction in his body was found before it could have costed Tugboat his life. 

Unfortunately, the hospital bills after the surgery are coming out to upwards of $5,000. All of the funds raised from this page would go directly towards the hospital bills.

Any amount helps. Thank you for supporting Tugboat!
