About the Campaign

They went from nothing to quite big in just over a month. 

This sweet girl has mammary tumors down the entire side of belly, and with their rapid growth the doctor wants to remove them absolutely as soon as possible.

Marilyn’s owner (Brooke) has had her since Marilyn was a puppy, and never got her spayed because Marilyn has always been a house dog. She’s never been bred or had puppies, and Brooke didn’t know that spaying considerably reduces the chance of developing mammary tumors.

Brooke took Marilyn to Blue Ridge Plaza Animal Clinic in Missouri, where we have had a number of animals treated successfully, including Pixel from a few months ago (Pixel’s campaign), and we have talked to Dr. Tarantino there about this case. Marilyn had a chest x-ray, and blood tests, and Dr. Tarantino sees no sign the cancer has spread, and says Marilyn’s blood work and her heart are strong and she is good for surgery!

Brooke spent over $500 on that visit, and she doesn’t have much money. Her elderly father recently had to move into her apartment with her, and she delivers newspapers for a living. Coming up with the money for this surgery is just not something she can do.

All donations are only for Marilyn, and only paid directly to Blue Ridge Plaza Animal Clinic, never the owner. If you can help Marilyn get the surgery she needs, urgently, please donate in confidence, knowing your donation will go directly to her! Thank you.

    Hello fellow animal lovers, my baby girl needs your help with any donation you would be able/willing to make. Marilyn Monroe is the sweetest, loving, and just the best all around friend anyone could ask for. She is strong and has so much more life to live and love to give. She is my rock and always by my side helping me through all of life’s ups and downs, so I will fight for her as long as she is here for me to fight/advocate for, I know she would do the same for me. Please help my baby, I have no children and she is my baby and I am not ready to say goodbye, especially not when she can be treated and her life saved, but money is what stands in my way. Thank you all in advance for your generous, animal loving hearts!!!!

    I have a little one with mammary tumors who is just too old to withstand the surgery. Good luck to Marilyn. My prayers are with you both.

    This dog needs help. Please spay or neuter your pets when they’re young. It’s an investment in their long term health.
