Hi there, My name is Nala. I am a 7 month young Golden Retriever girl with a zest for life. I sneaked into mom’s website ( please don’t tell her, ok?) I have trouble breathing, I have what is called Laryngeal Paralysis which means I need surgery in order to be able to breath ( it’s those flaps in the back of my throat that don’t open and close correctly which cause me to gasp for air). Sadly my brother passed away from it and it broke his families heart, they tried everything they could but by the time he was diagnosed it was to late for him. Mom checked around and the surgery runs anywhere from $750 to $1800 depending on complications. Mom is trying to come up with the money to get me in and get the surgery but there is no money in rescue and surgeries like mine really make them struggle to get the funds needed. If you don’t know what Laryngeal Paralysis is here is a link that explains it Here is a link that explains the surgery I came a long way, I was the runt and had diarrhea, mom got me over the diarrhea and I gained weight looking good, now I just need to get this surgery and I’ll be able to breath and run and play like a pup my age should be. Could you please pass my plea on to all your contacts/ friends? Maybe, just maybe if we all chip in we can get the money that the Vets want ( up front of course, sigh) so I can live a long an happy life?
From the bottom of my heart I thank you. xoxoxoxo Nala
