Pet News: Pet lovers raise thousands to save dumped puppy from sudden death
Numerous animal lovers have raised more than $ 6,000 to save one dumped puppy with serious health problems from impending death.
Sophie, a Golden Retriever puppy, was euthanized in a Victorian veterinary clinic when she was handed over by her breeder when she was only seven weeks old.
The little one had urine stains around her bum and shouldn’t fetch as much as the other pups. With expensive veterinary bills she was put in the “too hard” basket.

Sophie has been cared for by the for the past seven weeks Eden Ark Private Rescue and Rehome in Victoria.
A health exam found that Sophie had ectopic ureters, which means her kidneys bypassed her bladder and she suffered from incontinence.
“Sophie visited the great Moorabbin team in South Paws this morning for a check-up and further discussion of how we can fix her incontinence,” said Eden Ark Private Rescue and Rehome in a statement on their Facebook page.
“I dropped my cell phone in disbelief and excitement at how quickly all of your amazing people made this possible for Sophie.”
“This obviously comes at a high price, which was kindly discounted for us to help Sophie achieve the quality of life she deserves.”
Less than 24 hours after setting up a Crowdfunding page To raise $ 5,000 for Sophie’s procedure, $ 6,330 was raised.
“Holy Moly, you are absolutely amazing,” said Eden Ark Private Rescue and Rehome in response to the financial support.
“Thank you … I wanted to do a live with Sophie last night to say thank you, but I dropped my phone and broke my screen in disbelief and excitement at how quickly all of your amazing people made this possible for Sophie.
“Sophie is booked for her CT and surgery for Wednesday next week.”

Of the 190+ fund donors, many shared comments in support of the Ark’s social media page with photos of their own rescue pets.
“All the best, beautiful girls. We can’t thank you enough for our Jake. We adopted him almost three years ago,” wrote one Ark fanatic.
“This girl deserves a chance to live her good life. I send all my love,” wrote another.
“Donated by Cooper (also a popular rescue),” wrote another.
“Good luck darling. If Sophie needs a home forever, we are available,” wrote another.
Eden Ark Private Rescue and Rehome said, for obvious reasons, Sophie was not yet available for adoption but would be in the coming months.
