When we arrived at my apartment, we gave the dog a bath and the water turned from clear and bubbly to a smelly, dingy brown within a matter of minutes. We offered the dog some wet food and decided she would spend the night with us pending a visit to the vet the next day. The vet determined that based on the lack of a collar or registered microchip and the physical condition she was in it was highly likely she was dumped or had escaped a very bad situation. It took very little deliberation for me to decide I would be her forever home.
Phoebe has been with me since November 2016 and she has been an amazingly unexpected blessing in my life. Unfortunately, the medical bills are starting to add up. Phoebe has had 13 teeth pulled and 2 surgeries to close a hole that developed between her upper gum line and nasal cavity due to long-term malnutrition and poor dental hygiene. This week, I learned Phoebe has a mammary growth that must be surgically removed and sent to a lab for testing to determine the nature of the situation. I need to schedule this surgery ASAP in the hopes that we receive good news and a favorable prognosis.
If 30 people donate $50 we will cover most of the cost of the surgery and the testing. Pending a positive outcome, this would mean Phoebe can continue to crowd me out of my own bed on a nightly basis and drag me down the street after every bunny rabbit she sees. Any amount helps her get that much closer to living the happy, healthy life that all animals deserve and we sincerely appreciate your love and support.
