Yogi's Medical Expenses

Please help us save Yogi, a rescue in 2017 from the Chinese dog meat trade. 

A recent immigrant to the U.S. from China, Yogi the German shepherd joined the household of Scout, Cowgirl and Steve and Leslie this past January 2017.  

Like Scout, Yogi was rescued from the dog meat trade in China, with the help of a chain of wonderful and caring humans, stretching from China through Canada and to the U.S.

Yogi has experienced a patch of rough illness in these past weeks and has endured two surgeries for an obstruction and follow-on intensive medical care.  He remains at the Friendship Animal Hospital at the launch of this story.

The bill of $30,000 continues to grow. All who would like to donate and be a part of the human chain of help for Yogi , please donate to this GoFundMe page!

Thanks from Yogi and his family
