Help us Save Shorty! Our beloved pitbull needs a tumor removed. Please support our cause, we will forever be in your debt. -Kelly V

If you know me, you know Shorty. We've been inseparable since I was 17. After so many years as best friends, we have a special place in each others' hearts.

He's my "shadow," my pillow to cry on, my buddy to rough-house with (yes, he's still tough), and my victim @ Halloween, (you've seen the costumes everyone).

Every room of my house i am in, he is following me. Watching, protecting, and just plain loving his momma.

Thursday his vet found a large (8cm) tumor that is next to his liver. The size is affecting the function of his organs, mainly his stomach. The tumor is pushing against his stomach making him seem full when he's actually not, causing him to slowly starve. With surgery, I have the chance to give my best friend another 2+ years of life, happy, healthy and loved.

Without surgery, he's in danger of the tumor rupturing, that's an agonizing pain that I can't let happen.

Good news, It IS removable, at a price. The entire surgery can cost up to $5000, (not including aftercare). In the short time i have to raise the money I am setting our goal at $3000.

ANY kind of help is greatly appreciated. Shorty isn't just our dog, he's a member of our family, and we are fighting to save him.
