Story

Hello, my names Esmé, I am 13 years old and I am trying to raise money for our rescue dog, Pearl, as she needs urgent Bladder Prolapse surgery. We have pet insurance but unfortunately they will not cover this operation. We rescued Pearl on the 27th August this year. She has come all the way from Bosnia where she spent most of her life living on the streets later to be put in a kill shelter by the dog catchers. In the kill shelter her pen was full of mud, poo and was dark. Dogs living in this shelter are terrified and so not survive long. Luckily for Pearl a charity run by a few kind ladies (DK 4 paws) who in their own time to help feed and care for these dogs and try to get them out and adopted so they can experience love from their own family. When they rescued Pearl she was covered in fleas and was extremely skinny, we fell in love with her instantly and decided to adopt her. Now she is part of our family and we love her dearly, all she wants is cuddles and love as she's never had it before.

Pearl suffered a prolapse which needs urgent surgery, this surgery will be a major thing to help her lead a normal life, which she deserves. She loves to run and play but sadly she can't do this until she's better. I am doing this funding page to help my family pay for her surgery

    Pearl went in for her operation recently but it turned out that she didn't have a prolapse, she had two extremely large tumours in her vulva. These were removed. Now she needs to have at least 6 sessions of chemotherapy and we are still trying to raise the money. Our insurance cover will not pay for this as it is classed as a pre existing condition. Pearl has only been with us since August this year and deserves to have a long happy life with her family. Thank you for your help.

    I know how difficult it can be when you have an uninsurable rescued dog that needs treatment. Really hope Pearl recovers.
