Hi Everyone, I was really hoping we could go a year without having to have any major surgeries, unfortunately, that is not the case.   Jetz is a sweet 10-month-old Chihuahua puppy.  She was surrendered with her brother Benny and the two are very bonded and inseparable.  Jetz is a beautiful ebony girl who is quite shy and looks to her big brother for emotional support.  Benny is definitely the protective big brother and watches out for his little sister.  The two of them have found their fur-ever home and will live happily fur-ever after together, but we need your help.  Jetz has a heart murmur; it is called a PDA which is basically a defect from birth and she will die of congestive heart failure within a year if she doesn’t have the surgery.  Jetz surgery will cost $4,000.00.  We are asking our Facebook and website families if they will make this surgery possible for Jetz, like they did for Clementine last year.  Surgery is scheduled for November 11th at UW Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center, so that doesn’t leave us much time to raise the money.  Please help if you can.  We know this year has hit everyone hard, including us, and we try not to ask unless we really need the help.  Thanks for all you do for us, we couldn’t do this without you.

Please click HERE to go to The Jetz donation page and help if you can.
