Fundraiser for Missy
FUNDRAISER EXPIRED – We raised $4,591 thanks to all our amazing supporters. We are more than halfway there! We plan to start a new fundraiser to raise the remaining $2,409 after Missy’s appointment with the cardiologist in March. At that point we hope to have a better idea of when she will be ready for surgery!
Missy has trouble breathing and can’t take more than 4 steps without being completely out of breath, and exhausted! She requires an open-chest surgery to increase blood flow to her lungs. The estimated cost of this surgery is $5,000-$7,000. Missy has an uncommon heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. Most dogs with this devastating birth defect don’t live to see their first birthday. The fact that she is 4 yrs old is a miracle! As if that’s not enough, Missy also has severe glaucoma and was in significant pain from the extreme pressure in both eyes. We just had both of her eyes removed. Once healed, Missy will finally be pain free and we can focus on her heart health. While Missy recovers and adjust to life as a blind dog, we will raise the money we need to move forward with the second surgery for her heart defect. Please consider donating to Missy’s surgeries. She has suffered too long, but with your help we can give her the quality of life she deserves
