The cause to help pay for our pet Smeagol’s bill is important to our whole family. We did not have the courage to surrender him because of the intensive love we have for him. He is a 1 yr old pit bull, and we could not give him up and endure the possibility of him being sent to a violent home or having to be put down, so our decision was to take Smeagol into the Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals to help Smeagol recover from Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis (a life threatening disorder). His hospital stay was over 24 hours and included intensive care for dehydration, vomiting, and bloody diarrhea. We received a huge bill that we cannot afford and hope that anyone can share in the love towards him by helping us pay it. No matter what the expense, it was worth the effort to take him in to recover because we want him to be part of our family throughout all his dog years. Thankfully we made the right decision and Smeagol is now at home with us taking medications to help his health condition get better. The past couple days he has been improving and the next step is to payback the wonderful treatment he recieved from MECA.
