Please help us help Dorothy!

Being abandoned is horrible but being dumped with grade 4 dental disease and a ruptured mammary tumor is just plain heartless.  Animal control contacted Paw-Affection after Dorothy’s stray hold and we were informed she would need a mastectomy and dental and probably wasn’t spayed.  We started fundraising right away and was able to have her first mammary chain removed as well as the spay.  The pathology report indicated that she does have cancer and it spread to her lymph nodes.

Dorothy has an oncology consultation in early November, as well as her much needed dental.


We have currently raised 6,000 of our 8,000 goal.
