We need your help with two of our family members.

Fievel

We pulled Fievel from animal control, where he was taken after being hit by a car. His leg was broken pretty badly but luckily it only required a cast and no surgery! Fievel scored awesome foster parents who noticed he was having some incontinence issues, so he has been wearing a diaper. After getting him checked out at GVS, he was diagnosed with an Ectopic Ureter. EU is defined as “an ureteral opening in any area other than the normal position in the bladder”, this results in lack of urinary control. There is surgery available to attempt to correct this condition but it only has a 50-75% success rate and costs $3000. However, we will do whatever is needed to give our boy a chance at a normal life. This surgery will hopefully eliminate his urinary incontinence and give him a better quality of life and increasing his chance of finding a forever home. In addition to needing this surgery, Fievel is heartworm positive and is currently undergoing treatment.

In spite of his challenging circumstances, Fievel is a very happy, snuggly and handsome boy who loves hanging out with his foster sister.

 

Tyson

Tyson is an adorable 4-month-old, puppy who was confiscated in a cruelty case and taken in to animal control in July. Just a baby, he was released to FTTF after he ended up with a bad case of kennel cough. After a couple weeks of medication and TLC in his wonderful foster home, Tyson fully recovered and enjoys every day, playing and snuggling with his foster brother. However, during a check-up for a heart murmur, it was discovered Tyson also has a severe congenital heart disease: Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis. This disease causes narrowing of the pulmonic valve in his heart, leading to elevating pressure on the right side of his heart and could lead to life-threatening complications such as arrhythmias and/or congestive heart failure. Due to this diagnosis, on top of life-long beta-blocking medication, Tyson requires heart surgery: a balloon valvuloplasty at the University of Georgia. This procedure will relieve the pressure on the right side of Tyson’s heart and will cost around $3000. This surgery is likely Tyson’s only chance at living the long, happy life he deserves.

 

Tyson and Fievel are both young, happy, loving dogs who were dealt a bad hand and need help. Though they each have medical conditions needing repair, their spirits are far from broken. Please consider helping us help them by contributing to their medical bills and sharing with your friends. We appreciate all donations, big or small, and we can’t do it without your help.
