Our beautiful Jack Russel, Patch, has developed a heart murmur that needs to be examined and treated accordingly. As a student it is difficult for me to pay for these unforeseen expenses. I love my animals more than anything and dedicate a lot of my time to helping other animals and caring for my own. It would break my heart to see my dog suffer as she has been a constant light in my life. She is still reasonably young so I am hoping that this can be treated with the help of donations and she can continue to live a full life.
