Pongo has been a beloved member of his family for over 7 years. One morning his family woke up to find him weak, overheated, and whimpering in pain. They rushed him to VCA Emergency Animal Hospital & Referral Center where they determined that Pongo needed an emergency surgery to fix a chronic hernia in his diaphragm. Pongo’s “mom” has 6 young children and she couldn’t imagine having to tell them that Pongo had to be put down because they couldn’t afford the cost of his medical care. Thanks to Life Sponsor Ruggable, she was spared from having that difficult conversation and Pongo is now back to his healthy and happy self.
