About the Campaign

“Velcro” Dog needs

a tumor removed urgently

Munchie was found stray, emaciated and dirty. He ended up with a rescue, and got adopted and returned THREE times! People said he was too clingy, too attached, what they call a “Velcro” Dog. Fortunately for Munchie, Nicole came along and gave him a chance. He was perfect for her!

Munchie’s listing at the rescue in 2021:

That was in 2021, in 2022 he started licking his paw a lot. Turned out he had a benign tumor on his paw, but it took a number of vet visits to determine the problem and the surgery was expensive. Then at the end of 2022 Munchie was bleeding around his rear. At first it was diagnosed as a hemorrhoid, but later another doctor determined it was a tumor. In 2023 Munchie had a another procedure to remove that.

Shortly after this Nicole had some life events herself, she lost her long term job and also went through a divorce. Then late last year, Munchie started bleeding again. This time another doctor determined that Munchie has a recurring issue due to a botched neuter. He had an undescended testicle, and it wasn’t properly removed. This is causing the swelling and growths. So they need to do one more procedure to remove the new tumor and correct the botched neuter, and then Munchie should be good from now on!

Unfortunately money is tight now. Nicole has spent many $1000s on Munchie up to now, and used up her credit. She did recently get a new job, but doesn’t have access to all the funds needed. She has paid the $500 deposit to get Munchie on the surgery schedule, but Munchie needs help to get the procedure paid for. All donations are only for him, paid to the vet directly. His estimate is below (click to enlarge):
