Muncie rescue puppy with heart murmur to receive surgery
MUNCIE, Ind. (March 17, 2016) — A Muncie Animal Rescue Fund puppy is going to get a heart operation, thanks to the generosity of supporters.
Gracie, a 10-week-old Shih Tzu-Dachshund mix, is scheduled to see a Purdue veterinarian cardiologist at 10 a.m. Tuesday to receive an operation to correct her heart murmur.
The operation is estimated to cost around $3,800. ARF originally thought the cost would be $2,000, but after consulting with Purdue’s veterinarians, the cost increased. ARF did not have the financial means to fund the operation.
To date, ARF has received almost $8,000. That money has been donated in less than four days.
ARF will issue Gracie updates on Facebook as she continues on her medical journey.
