Hello, it’s Viktor here.
Today, I can’t appear on camera as my doctor has strictly forbidden me to speak. But I still need to reach out to you with an urgent message about Tombo.
In yesterday’s video, I revisited the story of Tombo, one of the most heart-touching tales we’ve ever shared. Two months ago, Tombo’s family, facing a dire situation, reached out to us. Tombo, once a street puppy, has spent his life enveloped in love in a modest but caring home. But life has recently dealt this family a devastating blow.
The matriarch of the family, who took Tombo in, is battling late-stage bone cancer. Initially diagnosed with breast cancer, it has aggressively spread. In these moments, priorities shift; it becomes less about looking ahead and more about ensuring those who depend on you are taken care of. This incredible woman made the heart-wrenching decision to entrust us with Tombo, knowing her time was limited.
We vowed to be there for Tombo. After successfully removing a tumor from his mouth, we now face another challenge – a surgery for his perineal hernia, a condition impacting his quality of life.
Amidst this, I must share something I didn’t mention before. For the past two weeks, Tombo’s owner has been in the intensive care unit. Her condition is worsening, yet her family’s concern for Tombo never falters. They frequently reach out, amidst their own heartache, to check on their beloved dog.
As a community and as an organization, we might feel powerless to change the family’s circumstances. Yet, two months ago, we initiated a fundraiser to provide ongoing support during these tough times, and it has been a lifeline for them.
Now, it’s time to focus on Tombo. He needs to undergo surgery. And once that’s done, he will be ready to go to a loving home. Tombo’s journey is a testament to the power of our rescue community – he is part of all of us now.
Please, if you’re able to, contribute towards Tombo’s surgery.
Let’s come together to ensure that Tombo gets the care he needs and deserves. Your donation can make a world of difference for Tombo, a dog who symbolizes the strength and compassion of our amazing rescue community.
Thank you for your support and kindness.
