A kind dog owner is organizing a bid to sell all her belongings to raise money for a life-saving treatment of her pet.
Snoppy is a Yorkie-chi who was rescued from a shelter in the US nine years ago. Dolly-Ann Osterloh, dog’s owner, found him in a dustbin abandoned by a family after Christmas. Last month, she took 9-year-old to be assessed after he developed breathing difficulties.
Snoopy was diagnosed with mitral valve- his heart had grown too big. Snoopy now has only a few more months to live if he doesn’t undergo a heart surgery worth a whopping £37,000.
“At the moment I have to give Snoopy medication 11 times a day, so I set my alarm to go off at least 11 times a day and because he’s such a tiny dog, I have to split the dosage. We have a slot on the 19th September, in Paris. A vet is coming over from Tokyo to do the operation. After the surgery, he should be like a young a dog again.”
Surgery is the only way to decrease the size of Snoopy’s heart and his only chance to live. While Dolly has raised most of the operation costs, she still needs approximate £5,000 to £10,000. Dolly has raised most it through her life savings, bank loans, and money borrowed from friends and family.
Dolly will be opening her London flat to the public for 24 hours from 9 pm on Friday to sell all her possessions to boost the remaining fund.
P.S. – The bond Dolly has with Snoopy outweighs the importance of anything else. Material belongings don’t matter to Dolly; all she wants is her dog to be okay.
