Snoopy Needs YOU!

In case you don’t know who Snoopy is, Snoopy is a 12 year old dog was recently surrendered to the shelter because his owner had become homeless. He has certainly seen some of the hard times that lead to his dad’s homelessness, and they are evident in his ever careful movements.

We were able to find a sanctuary foster for him and, on Thursday, Snoopy was able to leave the shelter on his new PBRSD journey.  On the way to his new foster, Snoopy took a brief stop at the vet’s office to get checked out.  We had hoped for typical “old dog” stuff. 

Unfortunately, it is not good news.

Snoopy has indicators for advanced lymphoma (cancer). 

We need to ask for your help again for our little old man.  We are committed to giving him the very best care for whatever time he has left and hopefully give him some days (if not weeks or months) of happiness.  We would like to be able to run further tests and have him see an oncologist.  Because of his age and his extreme frailty, we aren’t inclined to put him through the discomfort of chemo or surgery, but would like to be able to do all the things that an owner would do to make him comfortable.  As you know, hopefully not from personal experience, this sort of medical care can be costly.

With your help, we can afford to do the $500 of diagnostics that will help us arrive at the best course of action for Snoopy’s upcoming months.  We can provide ongoing care for as long as Snoopy’s might need it. Snoopy will know love and comfort because you cared enough to give that to him.

Snoopy’s foster mom reports that he is absolutely adorable – that he wags his tail weakly at the cats and ever so gently curls up with her on the softness of her couch.  He happily shares space with her resident dog, Wallace, and seems to enjoy being a pampered inside dog.  She does feel that he is uncomfortable and we want to be able to start helping him as soon as possible.

We have set up a special link to ensure that your donations go directly to Snoopy’s care.  As always, we are so grateful for all you do to help us help those in need.
