The animal rescue community of Houston are raising money to cover surgery for Mercedes, a dog with a bowling ball sized tumor.

Mercedes was found abandoned deep in the woods. Left alone she was emaciated and dehydrated. She has a bowling ball sized tumor hanging down between her back legs. No vet she saw had ever seen anything like this, and had no idea what it could be. She was finally seen at a specialty clinic, where an abdominal ultrasound was done. They determined that her uterus had come out due to a very large tumor, most probably TVT. This is treatable, this sweet, loving girl has many years ahead of her, and will make a wonderful pet for someone. We want to give her the opportunity to experience the love and safety of a loving family, who will care for her the way she needs. She also has heartworms that will also be treated after the tumor is taken care of. We need help in getting this surgery for her. Our quote is 3500-5000 dollars. Since this is the first they have seen like this, it is hard to pinpoint the exact amount it will cost. Please help us help sweet Mercedes get her surgery, and give her the gift of a healthy future.
