Pepper's Fund

Pepper's Fund

As soon as Inspector Stuart saw Pepper, he knew she needed urgent medical care.

The sweet Pomeranian had a swollen and incredibly painful ruptured right eye, as well as bruising and scars across her face and head.

Will you contribute to Pepper’s emergency fund today to help cover the costs of her veterinary care?

The damage to Pepper’s right eye was so severe that our vet team determined that immediate surgical removal was the best option. But this is just the first of several medical interventions she will need to alleviate her suffering.

Your compassion is needed urgently to help provide Pepper with the veterinary care she desperately needs.

It’s very likely that Pepper’s left eye will also need to be removed, as it is non-visual and causing her pain. In addition, she needs a hernia repair operation and major dental surgery.

We estimate her medical costs will be at least $5000 (but could climb to $8,000). As a community-funded organisation, we can’t shoulder this cost on our own – especially with the rising cost of living putting additional pressure on our shelter operations.

Can this precious Pom count on you at her time of greatest need?

Thank you for opening your heart to animals and contributing what you can to Pepper’s emergency fund. With your kindness, this dear dog will have a life to look forward to, in a loving new home.

*The goal for Pepper’s fundraiser includes the cost of blood tests, eye removal surgery x2, dental surgery, hernia repair, pain relief and post-operative care. If her medical costs are less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals in need.
