About the Campaign
Frankie was rescued the day he was to be put to sleep.
This pup was in a high kill shelter and Bonnie couldn’t see him be put down. So she did what she had to do and took Frankie in. After rescuing Frankie, Bonnie discovered he was very sick with giardia and hospitalized for dehydration. He was sick for the first few weeks which was very costly.
Last month, Frankie had to be boarded for the week. When Bonnie was picking Frankie up she noticed that his energy level wasn’t the same. She took him to her house and then realized he wasn’t eating or pooping. He normally is very food driven but wasn’t taking any food.
Sunday evening things get worse
On the way to Frankie’s new foster home, he throws up a piece of a tennis ball. Bonnie knew that he must have eaten a tennis ball somehow while in boarding and had a blockage of some sort. Immediately she called her vet where they discussed options and to see if Frankie could wait it out until Monday. Frankie’s foster mom watched him all night. Luckily, he was able to wait until Monday to do the surgery.
Frankie’s x-rays showed the rest of the tennis ball lodged in the fundus of his stomach and colon with an obstruction stool pattern. There was no way Frankie could have passed the tennis ball, emergency surgery was necessary for Frankie to survive.
