FUND UPDATE: Coco has $1019 in donations and needs $72 more as of 4:45 PM EST 5/13/13

Coco Alexander is a 7 year old Pit Bull who has been diagnosed with pyometra, an infection of the uterus. She needs surgery to remove her uterus (spay). Her mom reports that she is feeling very bad right now – not eating, barely drinking, and shaking.

The vet is closed as of this writing, but we will contact them on Monday morning to see how soon Coco can have surgery. We understand how serious pyometra is, and want Coco to have her surgery as soon as funds are available. We will update you as soon as we know more.

There is also another dog in the home that will need to be fixed. We may need to adjust the fundraising goal when we find out more information.

Here's what Coco's mom had to say about her:

“CoCo has been a member of our family for seven years now and we love her dearly. Many people prejudge her because of the pitbull reputation but she has the sweetest soul that have ever encountered. On March 31st of this year, we lost our Uncle and it hurt very badly. I don't know what we would do if we were ti lose another family member. Unfortunately we cannot afford the surgery that she desperately needs at this time to survive. So we ask you, please help us. We need you!”

Pyometra is a horribly painful disease and poor Coco is suffering terribly. This disease is clearly life threatening. Without surgery, the infection is raging through Coco's body and she has a temperature, she's shaking, unable to eat and her Mom is having problems giving Coco her medication because she won't eat and is barely drinking water. I won't go into the other horrible symptoms, but Coco has them. Please won't you make a donation, of any size, to help Coco get her surgery?

It would be wonderful if Coco's mom could call the vet in the morning to tell them that she has the funds needed to get Coco into surgery! Today being Mother's Day, it would be fantastic if we could raise all the funds for Coco as a tribute to all mothers and to give Coco's mother the boost she needs!

Hi, I highly appreciate every one at imom for your support. Coco has been in the family for 7yrs and is like a child to us. She's very friendly and is in desperate need of surgery. She's in a lot of pain right now and its hard to see her the way she is. I prayed that every thing will be okay. Thank all of you for your support.

FUND UPDATE: Coco has $195 in donations and needs $896 more

For anyone who doesn't know, pyometra is a lethal infection of the uterus and must be removed ASAP via emergency spay or this pet will die!

Angels, we have to move on this one! Cross-Post this thread far and wide. Let's tell anyone and everyone that Coco needs our help. Since we have been closed for a few weeks, there may be some IMOM Angels who are not reading the forum on a regular basis. If you know of any, can you contact them and let them know there is a PIN needing help?

Remember that no donation is ever too small, they all add up to help save the life of this sweet girl.

Angels, we really need your help for Coco, this pretty girl is so important to her family and they just need for her to be back to her healthy, playful self. We can't make that happen without your help. It's a beautiful day her in New York and I have had a wonderful day with my fur kids. I hope it's beautiful where you are. But it isn't a beautiful day for Coco and Patrice emotionally and physically with Coco being so sick. Any donation is gratefully accepted. Thank you for your consideration.

Coco has received $270 in donations so far. Thank you so much to everyone who has helped.

:thanks3:

We are still $821 away from our goal to get this sweetie into surgery.

Angels, every day that Coco has to wait, becomes more and more of a risk that she could end up in a Life Threatening Situation.

Time to raid those piggy banks, dig in those couch cushions, pack a lunch and skip that fancy coffee.

Rise and shine! Time to get the IMOM Angels back in the groove. Coco needs to have surgery as soon as possible - she does not sound like she is doing well.

Consider packing a lunch and skipping that fancy coffee today and donating to Coco. Each and every donation will add up so we can reach the goal.
