Sweetie is our much-loved 6-year-old Boston Terrier that we rescued 5 years ago from a bad home situation. When we were driving her home she gave us her new name, and ever since she's lived up to it. She's an incredibly loving and sweet dog and everyone that meets her says "what a sweetie!".
About a year ago we discovered a tumor growing on her hind leg and have been treating it with topical herbal salves ever since. For a while it seemed to be helping, until recently when the tumor started to get larger and change shape. Both bad signs.
Verdict: our vet says it's cancerous and we need to get it removed.
To make matters worse, this comes at a tough time for us financially. My wife and I very cash poor at the moment and we're about to move cities. We could really use your help to pay for this necessary surgery! We may not have cash, but we have a lot to offer. Read on!
What We Need & What You Get
Here's what we need:
- $500 will cover the surgery and vet care according to the quote we received.
- $600 will allow us to biopsy the tissue and hopefully rule out and further cancer treatment.
$25 gets you a tank top featuring Sweetie doing yoga
$50 gets you a home haircut with Debbie (in the Greater Victoria/Cowichan Valley area)
or $50 gets you two tank tops (outside Greater Victoria/Cowichan Valley area)
$75 gets you a private yoga lesson with Brian (in the Greater Victoria/Cowichan Valley area)
$500 gets you a new logo designed by Brian (anywhere!)

We may not have cash, but we feel that we have a lot to offer in exchange for yours. We hope you feel the perks we're offering are of equal value.
Of course, if we can't raise the money, we'll go into debt to make this surgery happen. She's booked in for Thursday August 13, 2014 and either way it'll get done. We'll keep the campaign going for a couple weeks and keep everyone posted of her progress.
Thank you for reading this far!
