We are VIVA, Volunteers for Indigent Vulnerable Animals, a dog rescue group in northern Baja, Mexico. We are a non-kill shelter and have managed to offer spay & neuter clinics monthly and we attend various adoption events in Southern California with much success. On occasion we have a very special dog that ends up with very concerning health issues. One such dog is Tilly. She is a 1 yr old whippet mix who was almost lost during spay surgery due to her labored breathing. This happened twice and finally an x-ray was done only to discover she had a diaphragmatic hernia. Since laparoscopic surgery must be performed the medical expense has increased dramatically. Therefore we NEED your HELP in giving Tilly a good life and a chance to be spayed before she goes into heat. She is STRONG, PLAYFUL and full of life. Please help us help this very special girl who just wants a chance and to be loved.
