Sumo


Just after celebrating his 3rd birthday, American bulldog Sumo got himself into a bit of trouble. He suddenly became lethargic and had trouble holding down food and water. The veterinarians at VCA Animal Specialty Group suspected he had eaten a mystery object that needed to be surgically removed for him to survive. His family had been struggling financially during the COVID pandemic and could not afford the surgery needed to save their beloved pet. Thanks to Life Sponsor Ruggable, we were able to make a pledge towards Sumo’s care.

We recently got an update from Sumo’s family: “You gave Sumo the most amazing gift – life! We are so, so grateful. His surgery went well, and he’s currently home with us. He’s sleepy and a little loopy from his medications, but is doing well!” ❤
