Shady is a 6 year old rescue. He has recently had 2 emergency procedures to dislodge a blockage. He was in need of extensive medical care, prescription food and multiple hospital visits and we have exhausted all financial resources.

He has a urinary disorder that creates mucus and crystals in his body. It is extremely uncomfortable and life threatening when there is a blockage. To prevent this from ever happening again the doctors say its imperative he gets surgery.

He never asked for this life but we all have the means to help him. Every bit counts. We appreciate anything you can contribute.

When he was first brought into the hospital a few days ago he was hours away from death. He stopped drinking, stopped eating was barely moving and his back legs no longer worked. The doctors refused to give him the life saving care he needed until they were paid thousands of dollars immediately and rest remaining balance before releasing him. (With no payment plan) In my opinion should be illegal. We have exhausted all of our finances, bank accounts, loans etc.

This surgery will save his life. Seeing as we no longer have any funds to put towards his health, if there is another blockage they would euthanize him. Please help us save him. Thank you.

Preparing Shady for yet another hospital visit tomorrow. Hopefully to get his stitches out!! Unfortunately that requires him to be put under again along with more IV's & blood work and guess what!? The doctors didn't include this in our initial estimate. How nice of them.
