Zeke needs surgery to remove his tonsil, and any other tumors that might be found. I need help paying for the surgery and all the tests.

Zeke was found as a 3 month old puppy 7 years ago, wondering around on Pelham Parkway in the Bronx. He had cigarette-like burns on his head, and had neorological damage. Because of his breed, we believe that he was abused. We welcomed him into our life, and he's been a blessing to us for 7 years. During this time, Zeke has suffered so many setbacks, having random seizures, and an unsteady gait. His eyes jerk back and forth constantaly and, as the vet says, he probably feels like he's on a constant roller coaster ride due to the neurological damage which was quite possibly caused by head trauma (at 3 months old, can you believe it?).

Despite all this, Zeke is the kindest soul who absolutely loves everybody he meets....adults, children, dogs, cats, and even birds... One day, I caught him trying to nurse an injured bird back to health. He would gently nudge it, and go down in a play bow, trying to get the poor bird to play. When I took the bird away (to bring it to a wildlife vet), Zeke followed me, whining.

I want to give Zeke another chance at life. Without this surgery, he's not going to make it. 7 years isn't long enough for such an awesome dog. He still has so much love to give. Even as he lays here, screaming now and then in pain, he manages to give a little kiss to whoever is near him.

Please help me to help him. He deserves it.

Thank you!
