Pinto needs your help!

Pinto and MacPlease donate to help fund Pinto’s surgery:

UPDATE: as of September 7th, Pinto is recovering from his surgery and there seems to be no return of the blood in his urine.  We have received 5 donations towards his surgery expenses.  Thank you!

Pinto(left) was surrendered to the shelter with his best buddy Mac in early July. Pinto is a great little guy with a fun personality. About two weeks ago the staff noticed he was not acting like his normal self, and that he was urinating blood. Pinto was taken to the vet and it was discovered he had a suspected urinary tract infection. Pinto was placed on antibiotics for two weeks. Upon returning to the vet after the antibiotics were finished Pinto was still not feeling well. This time it was recommended to do an X-ray which showed nothing. The vet suggested trying an ultrasound, which was just what Pinto needed. The ultrasound revealed that Pinto has bladder stones that will not pass on their own and require surgery to remove. Pinto is scheduled for surgery on Thursday and should be feeling much better soon. Pinto’s medical expenses are exceeding $1200 and we could use your help. Please donate to help pay for Pinto’s surgery. You can donate on our web site via Paypal or Razoo; please notate in the comment section that your donation is for Pinto. Thank you for helping this little guy!
