This grant helped our organization afford exploratory surgery for our medical dog Jericho. Jericho has been with us since July. His condition upon intake was terrible; he was covered in 10,000 ticks, he had severe ear infections, and a huge tumor on his penis that had ruptured. Jericho has had a total of three surgeries since being in our care. He was going through chemotherapy up until last week, when we discovered a large mass in his abdomen. This grant allowed us to do the exploratory surgery needed to remove the 12″x11″ mass on his spleen (yes inches!!). Sadly, the report of the mass came back as malignant fibrous histiocytoma, which is a very aggressive cancer. We will do everything for Jericho to ensure he has a happy life, even if it’s not for much longer. You can read more about Jericho’s journey with us (as it is a long one) on our website at http://www.standingproudpitbulls.org/#!soon-to-be-adoptable/c12hb. Thank you for supporting our organization. Although this grant only helped one dog, please understand that it helped one of the most resilient, loving, and loyal dogs that we have ever come across.
