A desperate plea is being made on behalf of an emotional support dog named “Snoopy.” Snoopy was rescued from a bad situation by his owner, Ruthanne, and now the pair are inseparable. But the lovable, seven-year-old pit bull is suffering.
For several months, a tumor, which is likely cancerous, has been growing on his face…his owner, who lives on disability benefits, has taken him to a veterinarian, but her funds are limited and Snoopy requires expensive treatment if he is to survive. The first veterinarian advised Snoopy’s owner that her dog was “not worth” saving.
Fortunately, a friend Ruthanne’s got Snoopy into another veterinarian in Howell, New Jersey, and the doctor believes that Snoopy can be helped. The treatment will be expensive – estimates are in the $1200 to $1400 range. If Snoopy does not get treatment, he will die.
Ruthanne’s friend told the Pet Rescue Report a bit more about Snoopy, “He is a happy dog and is full of life. He loves everyone and everything. He’s a gentle giant. Very good boy and makes everyone laugh. He brings much joy to all those around him. He’s worth trying to save. It’s a big risky procedure but the vet is up for the challenge.”
Ruthanne’s friend reached out to the Pet Rescue Report in desperation – for months she has tried to raise funds for the ailing dog, but recent Facebook changes mean that many animal lovers seldom, if ever, see her posts. The veterinarian who has agreed to treat Snoopy is willing to take payments from good Samaritans who would like to see this dog survive.
Anyone who is interested in helping can call the Howell Animal Hospital at 732-577-0066 (please reference “Snoopy”) or mail a check to the hospital (still referencing Snoopy) at: 2354 Route 9 South
