Pirate is special Papillon puppy...and he happens to be disabled. Pirate was born with just one functioning eye. True to it's mantra ("taking the DIS out of disability"), 4 Paws for Ability has opened their arms and hearts to Pirate.
He is destined to become a helping paw to a child in need, by training to be a diabetic alert dog, a seizure dog or a hearing ear dog.
Bur first, Pirate needs surgery to have his congenital ophthalmic defect repaired—the vet will remove his tiny, blind eye and the tissue surrounding it; then sew it closed, preventing infection.
This is where I am asking for your help once again...Pirate's surgery is going to cost the non-profit approximately $2500 - a small price to pay to help a little puppy change someone's life forever. But as a non-profit, 4 Paws doesn't have piles of money just laying around and they are asking for the public's help.
I am asking for your help.
4 Paws for Ability is providing Thor with a life-saving service dog in a matter of weeks and I don't know how I will ever repay their dedication and kindness. All I can do, is help them to help other families. So this is my call to action for animal lovers around the globe...
