Meet Valerie Hope. This past Monday we received a phone call that a little old lady pug was in need of help. She was dumped at a Rehab center in a small town. The kind folks there tried to keep her safe until someone could be dispatched to pick her up. Hope had a very large growth on her tummy, and her skin was red, raw and itchy from fleas and ticks, and she was malnourished She was taken to our vet the next day and had bloodwork, ultrasound, heartworm test. Hope had a huge mammary tumor and several small ones. She received emergency surgery yesterday. Most likely she will need surgery for the small tumors and after that immunotherapy with an oncologist. As you can imagine this is extremely expensive but she is so worth saving. Hope is such a sweetheart and despite her issues she wags her little tail and is so trusting. Since Hope has not given up on humans, we aren't giving up on her. Please donate to her vet bills if you can. No amount is ever too small. Please share. Hope and I thank you in advance for your generosity and kindness.
