It was found in a recent vet visit that that the smallest girl "Ava" (formerly known as Girl #2) has a heart issue and will need to see a specialist and not just any specialist, she will be going to University of Florida - Small Animal Hospital on Dec 31st.

She will have an Echo Cardiogram and complete exam then once confirmed she can make it through surgery she will have to have open heart surgery. This is not an option - if she does not have it she will die.

We need your help right now to make this happen, the cost of $3500 includes the echo and open heart surgery, Ava is just too young and small for the balloon. We were faced with the decision of waiting till she is older and going with the balloon option which is not as costly but the doctors feel we should do it as soon as possible so that no damage or heart failure happens. Every day we wait is a day she could die.  SO - we are doing what we do best - we are going to make it happen BUT we need your help.

I know its right after Christmas, I know it's not tax refund season yet and I know we are asking a lot....but we are her only hope. Ava entered this world under extreme circumstances, she was the smallest (runt) of all the puppies and yet here she is still fighting to LIVE. (And looking cute while she does it).

Please, donate what you can, share this story everywhere, there is no amount that is to big or too small.  

We have to raise these funds for her surgery and we only have a few days to do it....she must have it to live. 

The prognosis for her once surgery is complete is VERY GOOD this surgery will fix the problem and she will go on to lead a very good long life - but first she has to have it. Wont you help us - help her?
