The Save Mr. Bud Fundraiser has been started in an effort to help pay for Mr. Buds medical bills. As of August 31,2014, Mr. Bud was bitten by a Timber Rattlesnake in Fall Creek Falls state park. We were exploring the gorge together on a rainy Sunday when the snake bit him only about five feet in front of myself. If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting this amazing pup, you know just how kind and loving he is. He is my son, best friend, dog, disc golf partner, and hiking buddy. Right now he is fighting for his life at R.I.V.E.R. In Chattanooga,TN.
The veterinarians and staff are doing their best to save him. He has already began hyperbaric treatments, $150 each 4x a day, and they need to give him anti venoms in order to stop the venom from spreading through his tissues and organs. Since Mr. Bud is a large breed, he needs a minimum of two anti venom viles, each of which cost $900 each.
I have started this fundraiser to help pay for those expenses. I would do anything for this pup and vise versa. He saved my life and now I intend to save his. Please donate anything you can and share this. Thank you for your help.
