Story

Imagine waiting for a heart transplant and almost losing your beloved companion animal at the same time. Little Gillie, the dog, is nothing short of the perfect companion, warrior, and support system. 

Gillie needed expensive emergency surgery to remove a large kidney stone that was obstructing her urinary tract. After being examined by her veterinarian, Gillie’s medical team anticipated the stone to be too large to pass for such a little girl. If Gillie’s Dad was going to save her quality of life, he understood that he needed to act before it was too late. 

With the stone unable to pass, Gillie was left feeling extremely uncomfortable with the inability to urinate. After her appointment, her owner was faced with two unsettling options: come up with the money for expensive surgery to remove the stones, or euthanize his best friend. 

Gillie’s owner is currently fighting heart disease and waiting for a heart transplant while on permanent disability. Gillie is more than just a dog. She is a source of hope and reason to get up each morning. 

Gillie’s Dad has been through plenty already. If you are able to donate, please help Gillie’s dad cover this life-changing bill.

Gillie's owner says:

"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don’t know what I would have done without your help. I can’t thank you enough.  She is the most wonderful dog and our best friend."

Gillie received her surgery and is home and making her owner's lives happy again! 

We still need to raise $325 to cover this life-changing bill. If you can donate, please do.
