The family and friends of Deb Stanulevich are uniting to raise money to help with the expenses of her assistance dog, Pugs.

Pugs had been an assistance dog for over 8 years to Deb Stanulevich. Deb has Multiple Sclerosis and the added medical expenses prevent her from seeking veterinary care for her assistance Dog who is in dire need of veterinary care. Pugs licked her face and whined in an attempt to keep her conscious when Deb fell and hit her head, alerted her to cancer by sniffing and biting at the area, woke Deb up one morning when her c-pap machine quit working, and protected her when someone attempted to do her harm. Pugs and Deb have been together for 8 years. Pugs can no longer accompany Deb to East Tennessee State University and help her maneuver her wheelchair through the crowds of students, who cut off her path to class, who let the elevators close in her face, who watch the doors close while she is half way through, who sit in the halls with their legs stretched out, and who gather in the middle of the hallways to have a conversation with their friends.

Pugs time as an assistance dog is coming to a close. The pain she endures from the multiple tumors is unbearable for her. Pugs scratches and bites at the tumors as an attempt to remove them, but only ends up in more pain. She needs your help. Pugs needs to be seen by a veterinarian, and undergo testing. Deb has said that she does not want a new assistance dog to replace Pugs. What Deb wants is for Pugs to be happy, healthy, and pain free. Help us, help Deb achieve that goal.
