Two months ago, we shared with you one of the most touching and human stories we’ve experienced in this organization: the story of Tombo. This little one was rescued from the streets by a girl who took him home, where he was welcomed as another member of their humble but loving family. With them, Tombo has had a life filled with affection and love.
However, tragedy has struck this family. The mother suffers from bone cancer and is confined to her home, and her daughter, with two young children, two dogs, and a cat, lives far away and cannot help as much as she would like.
Amid this difficult situation, Tombo began to develop a tumor in his jaw, which, if untreated, threatened to be fatal. At that point, the family wrote to us and pleaded for help.
Upon meeting Tombo, the first thing we did was take him to the hospital to evaluate the possibility of removing the tumor. There, we discovered that he also had a perineal hernia that needed to be operated on.
After careful preparation, we operated on Tombo to remove the tumor from his jaw. Now, after weeks of recovery, it’s time to face his second surgery, a perineal hernia that must be treated to improve his quality of life.
Tombo, an adorable dog with a heart of gold, needs our help.
