US$370.00raised of $4,500.00 goal goal
Hi my name is Gemma. I am only 12 weeks old and I was born with a genetic birth effect that doesn't allow me to make bowel movements correctly like other pups my age. I was bought for a Christmas gift and when my new parents learned of my disorder, they could not provide the care I needed so Braveheart Animal Rescue stepped in to help me! Unfortunately, I won't survive long if I can't get the surgeries I need to help me release the pain I am feeling.
I have a condition called atresia ani. This disease is uncommon and rare in dogs. I will find out what type I have from the doctor hopefully this weekend. Braveheart needs help to pay for this very expensive surgery. It can cost up to $5,000 depending on how severe my case is. I would appreciate anything to help me get this very vital and life saving surgery. I would hate to leave this life. I thank you all for everything.
