Yesterday, Project Precious pulled an adorable, young, extraordinarily sweet pit bull mix named Sherlock (who we have renamed Oscar) from the Waterbury shelter. This boy did wonderfully at his exam, tolerated all handling, gave blood and took vaccines easily, and even let us do a skin scraping to rule out demodex on his very red skin.

We had the highest hopes for this boy, and he went under for his neuter about half an hour ago with a plan in place to transition him to foster tomorrow.

Unfortunately, our vet just called to let us know that Oscar's testicles are abnormal. She's got one out so far, and it is quite a mess with tumors. We were given the option of euthanizing him on the table, or proceeding with a biopsy and chest x-ray to determine the spread and severity and type of cancer. Oscar is a love, he is so sweet, he is so happy, he is already so loved. We are NOT euthanizing this dog without giving him every chance we possibly can.

His neuter and deep skin scrape will be completed in about 90 minutes and his biopsy sent out tonight. The estimate for his more complex surgery, expensive diagnostics, etc is between $700-$1000. This puts our currently vet bill at well over $4000.

We will not be taking in any additional animals until we knock at least $3000 off our vet bill. We need your help urgently, and these animals count on us.

If you would like to donate to Oscar and help us recoup from Skippyjon Jones, Hercules, Napoleon and the others we've taken in who have required some very expensive additional care, please do so via this page. If you are unable to donate here but would still like to, you can call our vet- Highway Animal Hospital- at 203-366-6733 and make a donation over the phone. You may also email projectpreciousrescue@gmail.com if you'd rather donate cash or check, and we will make arrangements.

PLEASE, these babies deserve every chance we can give them, and we can not do this without you.

Please keep Oscar in your prayers. We thank you for your support.
