We Like Mikey and He Needs Your Help!

mikeyMikey is a 4 month old dane puppy. He was picked up from a Dallas Shelter on January 9th and on the 10th broke out with Parvo. He was at a 24 hour emergency clinic for a week and ran up a $1968.93 bill and we had to move him due to lack of funds (they expect immediate payment). He is currently struggling at our vets though holding his own. We need donations to cover his emergency clinic bill and continued donations to cover his current bill.

HELP! EMERGENCY - NEED $2000 in 48 hours

Riley had emergency surgery early this morning (at 2 a.m.) for a spontaneously twisted SPLEEN and was bleeding out into his belly. During his emergency surgery they removed his spleen. He is currently resting and doing fine. We have to pay the bill in full in 48 hours when he is released from the hospital. Due to the number of dogs we have had this year needing special surgeries, heartworm treatment, and emergency boarding, we are tapped out!
