Helping Hands for Sampson

As some of you know, Sampson is my tripod shih tzu that I rescued at the young age of 4 weeks old. Unfortunately, Sampson has not been feeling well. Sampson has been suffering since August with an unknown ailness. We have seen the vet multiple times and tried different medications with no improvement. We are now going to see an internal medicine specialist and are in need of a CT scan, rhinoscopy, and a possible biopsy. Unfortunately all of this is extremely expensive. While I hate asking for help, being a 25yr old living on her own, this type of financial obligation is slightly out of my reach. I am hoping to find some animal lovers out there who would be willing to spare a couple dollars to help us out. I know we are all in a financial crisis because of the economy today but if you would be able to spare even $5 that would help tremendously. Even if you can’t help financially, thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated. Sampson and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
