I am relying on the help of people who understand the need to help an animal that loves you unconditionly. All funds go toward his surgery.

Cody is our sweet loveable sheltie. He has been with us now since 2001. He turned 12 in Feburary and is full of life everyday. He loves to play catch and frisby every chance he gets, and fights for attention with his little brother Chewy. A few years ago a developed a lump behind his ear. The vet took some samples, and could not determine if it was cancerous or not. To do a full biopsy was too pricey for us, so we have been keeping an eye on it. Sadly in the past month it has tripled in size and is now the size of a baseball pulling down the left side of his head. It is attached to his ear, so it is quite uncomfortable for him.

He is a stubborn dog and scratched at it so much, it became a bloody mess. Now we are fighting an infection and drainage of the wounds. While it looks awful and smells even worse, we do our best to keep it clean and bought the most comfortable "cone" we could to keep those paws off while it is healing.

The vet was kind when telling us our disheartening options:
1. A very expensive surgery in the thousands of dollars.
2. A cheap surgery he could try and perform with no guarantee that he will survive, but was willing to try for around $400-$500.
3. Put him down :(

I am a single mom with two girls and we love Cody as a part of our family. There is no way we can afford an expenisive surgery, but we are desperate to try and raise money for the less expensive surgery to try and save his life.
Cody's blood work came back and he is in perfect health other than this tumor that is now affecting his life.
I always said I would not pay for an expensive surgery for a dog...IF he was terminal. But Cody's life is no where near ready to be over and we have to try and make him healthy and happy again.

If you have a dog you love, you understand that it is your job to help if you can, they can not do it for themselves.
