$11,000 Vet Bill for "Cookie" - Owners Need Help

Please help Cookie...shot in her backyard/$11,000 in vet bills/news

Mon Jul 13, 2009 2:02 pm (PDT)

Cookie is a 2 year old German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix who was adopted from Big Fluffy Dog Rescue this past winter. In May, Cookie was shot while playing in her back yard by unknown assailants. Cookie's family took her to the nearest emergency vet, where they performed emergency surgery. The bullet perforated her intestines in five places, requiring extensive surgery and hospitalization. Cookie is now well on her way to recovery, but her family is in dire financial condition from trying to save their beloved pet. Cookie's family has an $11,000+ vet bill to pay. To date, they have only raised $650 and they need help.

Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is trying to help Cookie's family pay this bill down to a manageable level. It is a sad day when you have to choose between your home and your dog. All donations to Cookie's fund are tax deductible. No amount is too small and we appreciate any help. Cross-posting is equally welcome.

The links below are to stories on the shooting and some video of Cookie.
