    Weʼve raised £80 to Save Arf

    Cagayan de Oro, Northern Mindanao, Philippines
    Funded on Saturday, 20th May 2017

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Three quarters of a year ago I rescued Arf from a situation where he was not properly taken care of as the family he was with, of course, prioritized their children. Only shortly after I realize I also don't really have the funds to support him, but until now I have been able to feed him properly and give him his vaccinations and such.

    About two weeks ago we found a lot of blood in the area where he is staying to find out that a small tumor we knew he had had started bleeding. I was able to bring him to the vet, who concluded he had an infection that probably was the main cause for the bleeding.

    Until now I have been able to pay the vet and buy his medicines. However, the vet suggested the tumor to be removed when he is strong enough after the blood loss and recovered from the infection. The funds needed for that are basically too big for me, so I don't really know what to do.

    Arf is the first dog I really had of my own and he is only about two years old. Especially after having been underfed, meaning, among other things, he has not been able to reach his full size, I think he deserves a better, healthy life, which I am trying to give him.

    I hope there are people who are willing ot help me save Arf and give him the life I think he deserves, healthy and with enough food and (medical) care.

    I am looking forward to your support. Even just a word of encouragement would already be of great help.

      Fortunately the vet was able to stop the bleeding, that even restarted much worse shortly after I arrived at the clinic. And fortunately I could leave him there as I was fully exhausted after dealing with all the bleeding I didn't know how to stop. The very good news is that Arf was released this afternoon and he is here in his usual spot, resting. I will post photos later as I don't have them available right now. And no, I guess he is not cured, but at least he survived the immediate problem of his tumor bleeding so bad.

      Wow, another donation. And time for an update here, as a lot has happened since my last update. Fortunately for now is okay. He survived quite an ordeal end of last week and over the weekend. As last week he started bleeding again and it got worse and worse and I didn't know what to do anymore, especially during the weekend. So even when Sunday I was kind of desperate, Monday morning I knew I had to bring him to the vet, which I did, and looking back I guess he didn't have maybe even one hour to live after all the blood he had lost.

      Arf has been doing pretty well the last week, so I decided to leave of the carton a few days ago as it had fallen off and not put so much Mighty Bond anymore. Unfortunately last night he has been bleeding again, although not as much as in the beginning it seems. It means two things to me: something has to be done about the tumor and I have to be more careful that it does not bleed, as that probably makes him weaker.
