Diagnosis: Possible Obstruction (intestinal issue)

Amount of estimate: $1500

Owner Contribution: $500 (Owner has spent over $6,000 at multiple vets trying to help Zoe)

Fund raising goal: $1040 (4% has been added to help pay IMOM's business operating expenses)

Spayed or neutered: Yes!

Caseworker: Sarah/Melissa

Zoe is a 3 yr English Bulldog with a possible obstruction or intestinal issue/infection. Zoe's vet indicated exploratory surgery is needed w/in 5-7 days (that was 6 days ago). Zoe continues to vomit and not eat - looking at her picture - she is very thin. Zoe's mom, Ashley, lives with her mother and is a working college student. She has limited income and has spent a lot trying to find out what's wrong with Zoe. Zoe's current vet wants to get to the bottom of this as Zoe is about 30 lbs under weight and declining. They are the only vet that have been able to get her to respond a little to meds and food, but still she vomits. Zoe has been through way to many tests and procedures to continue. She must have surgery tomorrow morning.

Note from Ashley's mom: Hi, I'm Ashley and I have a 3.5 yr old bulldog named Zoe who has an extraordinary spirit. She's battling a life threatening intestinal infection or obstruction. I've exhausted my finances on numerous tests & treatments @4 Vets, who've concluded that she needs exploratory surgery. Zoe exhibits the will to live but needs this surgery to find out what is causing her ailment. Every Vet professional has also noticed that Zoe has a unique bond with me that anyone can see. Zoe has been by my side through so much and she is my family. Please help save my family because we are each other's support that gets us through each day. Ash&Zoe

Thanks, Christine. :)

I'm Italian and we can't stand to see a skinny animal! I'm in for $50 - wish it could be more.

Hang in there, Zoe. Your mom's been trying really hard to fix you up on her own, and now she's got an army of animal lovers in the fight with her!

Ashley - please don't even consider giving Zoe up putting her down until the vet can figure out what this is. You definitely have a bond and you owe it ot Zoe to take this as far as you can. iMOM is a wonderful org with powerful people who will give you money and SUPPORT. Stay strong! Christine

I checked, I thought worth a shot! The surgery dept has closed for the day. (They are in California, and we just missed it by about an hour or so). But she is on the schedule for tomorrow. Drop off at 8:30am. $190 more to go! :)

***Remember, we are using the $500 matching challenge out of the GF fund. So if you want to donate after we have raised the $540, feel free to do so, as then it will be less we have to take out of the GF Fund. We just were very worried about Zoe and wanted to ensure she got into the doc tomorrow and since we just did a large case (Millard) we thought we better try and help out.

BIG THANK YOUs for those of you that have already donated to help Zoe.

[]6068691469_f0a34f42f5_t.jpg Mandy asked if we could just skip her next trip to the vet, and donate that amount, but I told her no way. We just got her heart to start shrinking, and we aren't going to skip any vet visits!. So then she offered her nylabone. We've donated money too, and will head over to Face book to post

It looks like we're going to take care of little Zoe right quick :smokin: , so I wanted to repost what Melissa said because it's important:

Remember, we are using the $500 matching challenge out of the [General Fund]. So if you want to donate after we have raised the $540, feel free to do so, as then it will be less we have to take out of the GF Fund.

Just got word that Ashley is going to another computer as she can't get hers up now. Of course, everything happens at once.

But don't worry, she's on her way. I can feel her excitement already when she sees how quickly Zoe is going to get the surgery she needs thanks to the IMOM ANGELS!
