Story

Coco the service dog has a big heart, literally. She suffers from an ongoing heart condition called Degenerative Mitral Valve Disease, which causes enlarging of her heart. While the disease is serious and life-threatening, she gets along fine when it is controlled with medication and regular check-ups. The cost of the ongoing treatment has become too much for Coco’s mom, who is unable to work due to a permanent disability.


Coco may seem like your average small chihuahua, but she has a big job. She offers companionship and support to her owner and her owner’s elderly mother. She is a support system for an entire family.


Please help Coco overcome this life-threatening condition by helping to cover some of her medical bills.

She receives two medications a month at $30 and $59 each.

Her check-ups cost about $25 each

And she sometimes needs additional ultrasounds to X-rays to monitor the condition, which can cost upwards of $800.  


Please make a donation to help this hard-working chihuahua overcome.

Stay tuned for updates.
