Several months ago, a beautiful Labrador retriever named "Daisy," was rescued from a high-kill animal control in Texas by the Big Dog Rescue Project, and today, the same rescue organization is fighting, once again, to save her life.
Daisy skirted death at the Texas facility and was eventually adopted to a loving family in Salem, Ore. Following her adoption, the beautiful, young dog inexplicably fell victim to repeat bouts with pneumonia.
Recently, a veterinarian determined the cause of Daisy's life-threatening illnesses...a deformed lung.
Right now, Daisy's lung is collapsed, and later this week, the deformed portion of her lung must be completely removed.
Daisy's family is not financially equipped to handle the thousands of dollars necessary to save their dog's life, so the rescue organization that originally helped Daisy is stepping up to help her now.
Daisy will be undergoing surgery at the Cascade Veterinary Referral Center in Portland, Ore.
Dr. Timothy McCarthy DVM, will be performing Daisy's surgery, which is expected to cost between $4,400 and $6,500. Daisy's family is paying $2,000 for their dog's surgery, but the remainder is simply more than they are able to afford.
The Big Dog Rescue Project stated:
we consider or dogs and their adopters family for life and vow to do whatever we can for them. So we have offered to fundraise and pay what they cannot. Won't you help us help Daisy? She has a Mom and a little boy anxiously waiting to get their happy healthy puppy back...
Daisy's family is fighting for their companion and the rescue organization who stepped up to save her from certain death earlier this year, is stepping in as well. If you are interested in helping this team save one, special dog's life, please click here to learn how you can help.
