I'm raising money to fund Melanie the Chihuahua's life saving heart surgery. Without it, she will die. Time is of the essence!

Melanie is an 18 month old Chihuahua that I rescued from a bad home situation in June. What I didn't know until after I brought her home, is that she has a heart defect and urgently needs heart surgery to save her sweet little life. Without it, she will die. Melanie has what's called a patent ductus arteriosus - a blood vessel is shunting blood through her heart. Left untreated, it will lead to heart failure and death before she's 2 years old, which only gives me a couple months to help her. Please help save her as she needs surgery asap - the sooner the better. The longer she goes without the surgery, the more damage she is sustaining to her heart. She hasn't known much kindness in her short little life, and I'd like to change that. I won't let her die without a fight!

Although she's sick and obviously not feeling good, she always has a kiss to go around and a little tail wag. Won't you please consider helping her survive?
