BENEFITING: PEOPLE UNITED FOR PETS
Countless companion animals are abandoned everyday. PUP Dog Rescue is dedicated to helping dogs and cats find the best homes possible in the Seattle area, and that doesn't stop if they have a severe to simple medical need. Most often we are presented with medical need dogs or cats that, with just a little bit of TLC, or a loving touch from a talented vet team, can live a happy and full life.Please consider donating to our Medical Needs Fundraiser, by finding inspiration in this month's special pup Navid.
Navid is an adorable young pup who came to us from a shelter in California. When dogs come off the transport van, they are often bewildered, scared, and very malnourished. This is what living on the streets or in a home without proper care can do to them. We often ask ourselves how in the world a sweet pup like this could end up as a stray or in the shelter. In this case we think we may have found the answer. Our vets have diagnosed Navid with a liver shunt.
This is a condition where the normal flow of blood, to and through the liver, is markedly reduced or absent. Surgery, although costly, provides the best chance for a long, healthy life in most dogs with this condition. We’ve been here before with another dog named Sweetums. We opted for surgery and it was extremely successful. She’s now living the good life with her owner; going on trail walks, being an “office assistant” during the day, playing with her dog buddies, and more. She is loved and adored, and it was all made possible through your thoughts, prayers, and generous donations.
We have a motto at PUP, “Put the challenge before us and we’ll meet it.” We are asking for you to join us, so together we can help Navid meet the challenge facing him now. Our combined efforts will enable us to provide this sweet innocent little pup with the same chance we gave to pups like Sweetums. After your donation, we invite you to take a look at all our amazing Happy Tails Stories to see these pups enjoying their forever homes: http://www.pupdogrescue.org/happy-tails.phtml.
