Fozzie, an eight-year-young dog, underwent emergency surgery for a ruptured disc and a bulging disc in his cervical spine, after his pain couldn’t be managed anymore with medication. His family had to decide whether to have the surgery, knowing they couldn’t afford it, or have Fozzie euthanized. Thankfully, they opted for the surgery and reached out to Rochester Hope for Pets. Thanks to donors like our friends at Davidson Fink, we were able to provide an award, reducing Fozzie’s family’s debt. Afterward, his mom said, “Thank you so much!!!! This is such a help. It feels like I would have been under this debt forever. When I sell my house, I plan to contribute back to you. You’ve taken a huge burden off my shoulders.”
