Rudy needs a surgery that will remove the tumor in his bladder. They will then biopsy the tumor to see if it is cancerous or not. They do not think it is though because of the position of the tumor. Don't delay SAVE RUDY today!

Rudy is a 6 year old Beagle that came to be the famous dog he is today when he was rescued from the Berks County Humane Society on Memorial Day 2005. When Jason Garcia first laid eyes on him they both knew they were meant to be best pals for life. Jason lives on Kutztown University’s campus as an Area Coordinator and from the first day Rudy was introduced he was an instant celebrity. Rudy assisted organizations by raising funds for hurricane Katrina when they did a Kissing Booth where people donated money to get a wet kiss from Rudy. He helped raise over $300 dollars in about two hours. Rudy has also played the role of therapy dog for those students who miss their own animals and want just a little spontaneous love from a furry friend. Rudy is a member of the Kutztown community and has a special place in a lot of students’ hearts. Rudy has never shown a hint of aggression to anyone or anything…well if you exclude the squirrels and birds…but that’s just his natural instinct.

Unfortunately Rudy began urinating blood and has been diagnosed with having a large mass in his bladder. The mass is in a good position to be removed and he has been cleared by the oncologist to have it removed. The surgery that Rudy needs would remove the mass and a small portion of his bladder and hopefully give him a full and happy life. The surgery is estimated to cost between$ 4,000 to $4,500 dollars. By not being able to have this surgery, the mass in Rudy’s bladder may grow which will then make it impossible to just remove a portion of Rudy’s bladder. More than likely they would need to remove Rudy’s entire bladder which would deteriorate his quality of life quickly, painfully, and dramatically.

Rudy is trying to have his surgery done at one of the top hospitals in the world, the Animal Medical Center in New York City (www.amcny.org). Please help us save his life by contributing anything you can to this procedure. Rudy promises to have a party when he’s better and invite all the people that made it possible for him to continue to make a difference in people’s lives.
