This is the Reese Emergency pet Fund. He Fractured his neck over the weekend, the funds will be used for Reese's medical costs.

Hello and Thank You for your time,

It has been one heck of a weekend. Reese, seen in the photos is a very special dog. He is very loved by his owner Pete. Pete adopted Reese when he was three, his original owner was having a baby and had to give him up. Pete and Reese have been inseparable ever since! I have never seen a dog and animal have the same exact personality but I swear they do.

Reese loves to go on long walks in the park with Pete and I. His Frisbee never leaves his mouth, it is quite a sight to see. Pete plays Frisbee with him every day, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Unfortunately Reese had a very bad accident on Saturday (7/21/2012) while playing Frisbee with the neighbors dog. They collided and Reese never got back up.

Pete immediately ran to Reese’s side. He was having a seizer. Once the convulsing subsided Reese was still unable to get up. We rushed him to Cares medical center in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. As we sat and waited for a prognosis Pete’s whole family (mom, dad, brother, and sister) came for support. The doctor came in with the x-ray results and told us and his family that Reese had fractured a vertebrae in his neck and the disk in between was so slipped that two of his vertebrae were touching.

CARES cost = $850

The next step.. transport Reese to the University of Pennsylvania for an emergency CT scan. We were left in suspense all night. The phone call came on Sunday morning at 6:30. The CT looked good, his spinal cord was not severed but an MRI had to be done to get a better look. Pete got another call at 6:00pm, The MRI was also good, Reese will not need surgery! They now have him in a body cast.

Reese is still Hospitalized at the University of Pennsylvania – Vet bill is currently estimated at $8,000.

The doctors are having trouble finding a cause for the lack of movement and blood flow in his right side. They are recommending inpatient physical therapy in Tinton falls, NJ. Pete still has not received an estimate for the next portion of Reese’s care but Pete and his family have run out of funds to keep him alive.

Any help that you could be to Pete and his family would be greatly appreciated.

We can’t lose Reese!
