In Loving Memory of the Friends We Have Lost
Velvet was a 3 year old Great Dane who had a rough start. Due to irresponsible breeding practices, she was born both blind and deaf. In spite of her disabilities, she found a wonderful family who worked with her to overcome them, and filled her world with love. When Velvet became very ill with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, her family spent $10,000 trying to make her better. With the help of the VET Fund family they were able to get an extra 2 months with her before her illness became too much and she passed away in her sleep.
Boss was an 8 year old pit bull who suddenly got very sick. He was vomiting constantly, and his veterinarians decided that he needed emergency surgery to determine the cause. Sure enough, Boss had dug a corn cob out of the trash and swallowed it, causing an obstruction in his intestines. The corn cob was successfully removed, but the stress on his body was too much and Boss passed away later that evening.
Little baby Groot was only 3 months old when he began having terrible seizures and difficulty breathing. After dozens of tests and treatment, his seizures continued to get worse. At only 4 months old, Groot couldn’t fight his illness anymore and said goodbye to this world with his parents by his side.
