Scooter Wants to Live Longer!


My name is Scooter and I'm 13 years old. I thought I would have another 7 years or more (hopefully) to sleep, eat and watch birds, but last week my parents got a blood test back from my vet that showed I have Hyperthyroidism. Without going into all the gory details, if left untreated it is a fatal disease.

BUT the good news is that there is a CURE called radioiodine 131. It's fast and 98% effective with no side effects. The problem is that to complete the treatment the total cost is around $2,500! And due to COVID-19 my parents are on a very tight budget and can't afford that much right now.

So, if you could help me out with "any size" donation to pay for the treatment I'd be really grateful. Also, for anyone who can make a donation of $50 or more, my mom would like to mail you a thank you gift of one of 16 brand new, hand painted silk scarves she made while that supply lasts.

Thanks a bunch.
