An animal shelter is asking for donations to help two of its little residents get life-saving surgery and a chance to find what every puppy deserves - a loving home!
By, 28 Jul 2020
Pug brothers Reggie and Ronnie arrived at the Breeds In Need animal shelter when they were just one day old.
Reggie and Ronnie need our help
But the siblings, now 11-weeks old, both need expensive surgeries to help them grow into happy, healthy dogs.
Ronnie and Reggie were born with a cleft palate, which affects their ability to eat and keep down food. And if that wasn't bad enough, poor little Reggie also has a hiatal hernia. That's when part of the stomach bulges up into the chest through an opening in the diaphragm.
After examining the pups, a vet suggested euthanasia to avoid the high cost of treatment.
But the Breeds In Need founders, Ruth Sanderson and Sally Turzanski, refused to give up on this adorable duo.
Instead, they set up a GoFund page to cover medical costs. So far they've raised over £1,000 of their £3,000 target.
Let's give these brothers a second chance
Speaking to the Metro, Ruth said:
"Some people say that they're not worth it, but we couldn't disagree more."
"We simply cannot end their lives without doing absolutely everything that we can to save them and help them live a happy and healthy life."
