Mozzer's Medical Fund

$1,560 of $500 goal

Raised by 35 people in 6 months

If you've met him, you love him. Mozzer (short for Morrissey, named after the beloved English singer) is a Doberman Pinscher that Secondhand Mutts rescued and I promptly adopted in the late summer of 2009. He's been my constant companion since then, is a AKC Canine Good Citizen, and for many years was an ambassador for Secondhand Mutts as I volunteered and spent time on the board of directors. From Cleveland to Milwaukee to Buffalo, he has spread love and gentleness, a testament to his breed and species and their power to heal the human spirit. 

Earlier this year, he developed a strange bump on his leg that I initially dismissed as your usual senior Doberman lumpiness. Recently, that bump has grown and ruptured, as seen here (sorry for the graphic nature):


After consulting with his vet at Gateway Animal Clinic, we've opted to have this mass removed and a biopsy conducted. While he's under, we're also going to remove a larger fatty lump between his left front leg and chest which can hinder his ease of movement. After his surgery, we'll be staying in Cleveland (we've been residing in Buffalo lately, but luckily I work remotely) for at least a couple weeks. 

I'm turning to my friends, family, and generous strangers now to ask for help in alleviating the financial burden of this procedure. Between the initial consultation visit yesterday and the surgery next Thursday (7/24/2017), I'm looking at over $650 in expenses, excluding any related to his post-surgery recovery. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone! Mozzer's surgery today went great - they removed the fatty lump and the other lump which is being sent off for analysis, the results usually take a week according to the vet. He's going to be relaxing and recovering for a couple weeks before getting stitches out. I'll keep everyone updated about the results of the biopsy. Since Mozzer is getting old, I've decided to set aside the surplus donations after his bills now in a fund for his future vet care. If anybody is uncomfortable with this, please let me know. Thanks to everyone for pitching in and showing us all this love - keep an eye out for postcards and tapes and dvds!
Not the kind of pizza time he expected

We have surpassed the goal considerably thanks to an anonymous gift. I'm literally dizzy from the kindness of my friends and strangers. I can't believe the love Moz and I have been bestowed... not just these donations, but dozens, DOZENS of messages and texts and emails flowing in, and its been ONE HOUR.

My heart is full, overflowing. Thank you. Mozzer says thank you. I'll keep everyone updated, of course. Anyone can still claim a prize if they want, as I'll keep the thing open until I think Monday night.

Thank you.
