Make Petunia Smile: Pug Puppy Cleft Palate Surgery

Petunia is a 6 week old baby pug, who was rescued by Pet Rescue of Mercer volunteers on the day she was born (2/17/21).  Petunia was born with a double cleft palate, which left her unable to eat.  Luckily, she found a wonderful foster home, with a veterinary technician who has the skills and patience to care for Petunia and bottle feed her, so she can grow and thrive!  Without being bottle fed, she would not have survived.  Now that Petunia is healthy, she can have surgery to repair her cleft palate and eat on her own.  Petunia's surgery and vet care will total about $1500 .  She is scheduled for surgery in April of 2021.  Our hope is that we can raise the needed funds in order to take the burden off of the rescue and ensure we can continue to help dogs and cats with medical needs!
