Puppy Bella's Surgery

This is Bella.  She is a 10-week old lab puppy who has been diagnosed with a rare congenital defect.  She has ectopic ureters where the tubes from her kidneys to her bladder do not connect correctly causing urine to bypass the bladder and drip straight out of her body. The only treatment for this condition requires an extremely expensive surgery that only specialists are able to perform.  The goal amount is the amount that is needed in addition to the family's own contribution.  Her owners purchased her at 8 weeks unaware of the problem and were given the option to return her for a refund. 



The owners are first time pet-owners and have two small children of their own so money is already tight.  However, Bella had already won over their hearts and they refused to return her like she was a piece of merchandise. She was now already a part of their family.  They are asking for any donation toward her medical expenses so that Bella can quickly get the treatment she so lovingly deserves and enjoy the rest of her life with her loving family.
