I am seeking assistance and support to raise money to help Kovu with his PDA heart murmur. The funds will go towards his surgery!

I purchased Kovu, a Basenji puppy on April 3, 2012. I had been waiting since February when he was born for this day that I could finally have him and take him back home. When I took him to his initial vet visit, I was informed that Kovu had a heart murmur. However, his doctor said that many puppies get this condition and can grow out of it.

I had a sense of relief until May 11, 2012 when he went to a second vet for another opinion. Kovu was then diagnosed with a PDA heart murmur that would have to be rectified with surgery. Without the surgery, he is estimated to live only three more months.

I am unable to pay for this surgery, as I do not have the financial means to do so. I spoke with a local Veterinarian for counsel about what I could do to keep Kovu alive. He told me to reach out to several rescue groups/organizations. He told me of a patient he had with a similar situation and rescue groups/organizations helped her find various ways to come up with the funds.

I love my dog and don't want to see him leave me so soon, as I have just begun to say hello to him in my life. He is a joy to have in my life and can't imagine not having him here so soon.

We thank you in advance for any and every type of support!
