Cancer care for Wyatt & Kala

My friend Josephine did not have a dog for over a decade, then Wyatt  the bloodhound came into her life in 2008 - ever since then, he's been an absolute light for her, her closest companion.  In 2015, former Palo Alto Police Department scent detection bloodhound K-9 Kala joined her family - first as a foster dog awaiting her future home, then as a full member of the pack when Josephine adopted her. Unfortunately, both Wyatt and Kala have developed cancer over the past year, and there have been vet visits, a surgery,  a CT scan, and a stay in the ICU ever since.  Josephine is very happy to be able to do this for her beloved hounds; however, those bills have been piling up, and her insurance for Wyatt only covers so much. 100% of the funds will be used to cover medical expenses for Wyatt and Kala, so they can maintain a high quality of life as long as possible.  Both hounds are extremely spirited and continue to have a zest for life in spite of their illnesses.  Wyatt continues to go out on hikes with the chocolate labs in his family (Sasha and Jack) as well as the dogs that Josephine cares for.  Kala does not go out as much, but is very happy eating, sleeping, and spending time at home with Josephine, Wyatt and the labs. Unfortunately, Wyatt's tumor has returned and Josephine needs financial assistance for his second surgery, hopefully this Friday November 30th. Any help would be much appreciated by Josephine, Wyatt and Kala. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
