Please show your support by donating to Operation Sheldon!

Dear Family and Friends,

Recently Sheldon was diagnosed with a Portosystemic Shunt (PSS). PSS is an abnormal connection between the portal vein and systemic circulation. Blood from the abdominal organs which should be drained by the portal vein into the liver is bypassed directly into the systemic circulation. A surgery can be performed to fix his liver, but the operation can cost up to $5,000.00. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to afford that kind of expense.

Sheldon is almost one and a half years old and for those of you who have had the pleasure of meeting him know what a special dog he is. And for those of you who know me know how much he means to me. Sheldon is currently on medication but I was told without the surgery his life span could be cut in half.

I never wanted a dog, but he has since then changed my life for the better. They say to socialize your dog when they are young so they are not afraid of things when they get older, but I think it was actually Sheldon who socialized me. I have met some amazing people, made wonderful friends and gone to places I would have never known existed all because of this sweet boy.

There is no minimum or maximum you can donate, anything is appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance for you contribution to “Operation Sheldon.”
