Military Vet Service Dog Surgury

As some of you may know already, Balto is a service dog. He has been through a lot to say the least. Balto was rescued from a kill shelter through Sherri's Wounded Warrior Project in 2014 when he was just 2 years old. Shortly after, Balto was placed with me through the project since I was in need of a service dog. The project allowed me to care for, bond, and train Balto. A year later Balto graduated from the project as an official service dog. Even though I didn't have the pleasure of having him as a puppy, Balto has helped me through some of the hardest times of my life and I would do anything to keep him safe and happy. Unfortunately, he was recently diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on his left arm, a very visible tumor that can be seen and continues to grow,  because of this,  it's imperative that he gets the surgery to remove this as soon as possible.

Balto is such a great a dog, loyal, obedient,  and the bestest friend, he doesn't deserve to suffer. Anything helps,  please help Balto continue to brighten people's days!!
