Surgery for Suzy

Hello I am Alyson and above is my dog Suzy-Q. I got her when I was in second grade and shes turning 9 December 23rd. Ever since we met there has been a bond between us that’s absolutely indescribable and I sometimes feel she carries some of my same personality traits. She’s loved by everyone who comes in contact with her and she loves them back :).

Over the course of the pandemic she has had a lot of medical problems that my family and I have been able to treat. But, throughout this lockdown period she has developed mass on her upper ribcage that spread to her under arms and a portion of her back. I am afraid that it will start spread to her heart soon as it is around that area of her body. It has left her in a lot of physical pain and is starting to impair her walking.

I have tried everything I can possibly do to raise this money myself and within my family but everything has come to a dead end. This also includes the cost of some dental work she needs done aside from the mass that are less detrimental to her health but I still want to fix for her.

Even if you are unable to donate, if you are able to share it with people you know it would mean the world :)
