Girl is a 10-year old Cocker Spaniel who was a rescue dog. She was diagnosed with a mixed mammary tumor that quickly grew to the size of a cantaloupe.

Girl’s owner has a history of feeding feral cats and rescuing dogs near a local shelter that tends not to want to keep dogs.  She particularly takes in those that no one else would want (older, bite, not easily adoptable).  She adopted Girl about 5 years ago and, having lost one of her dogs recently to old age, she’s extremely close to Girl and her remaining sibling.

Girl’s owner is retired and still recovering financially from some major health issues.  The clinic was sensitive to her relationship with the local shelter and history of rescue work in pricing the surgery to remove the tumor.  Given the large size and rapid rate of growth, there’s a good chance that it’s not malignant signaling the potential for a positive outcome.

The Pie Fund has been largely depleted this past year and inactive in assisting families, but when we heard Girl’s story and the generosity of her owner for needy animals, we were glad to help with modest assistance.

Please consider a donation for the Pie Fund to continue its mission in providing funds to needy families faced with losing the dogs they love to cancer.  Make a donation now.
