"Chupie is our family rescue from the the Arizona desert and has spent the last 9 months getting healthy. It has been a long road – culminating December 2nd with the removal of a back molar that had become completely rotten. After over $1000.00 of medical expenses rehabbing our dear boy since March, we were hurting. When the news of the rotten tooth and the expense to remove it came our way, we knew it had to be done, but were unsure how we were going to pay for it. In an amazing stroke of luck, Chris spoke with a representative of the Woof Foundation during our consultation appointment for the tooth - an amazing group whose mission it is to help folks just like us pay for expensive life-saving surgeries. After hearing Chupie’s story, they said he was a perfect candidate and agreed to pay for most of the surgery! We are eternally grateful for their generosity and I am continued to be amazed by the joy Chupie has brought to our family. We have since nick-named him our “spirit dog,” as he seems to be in tuned with a higher power. I’m not sure if he was sent to find us, or the other way around, but there is no doubt he was meant to be in our lives. Thank you Woof Foundation, Dr. Kris Ahlgrim at GoldenView Veterinary Hospital, as well as Dr. Pei and the great team at Stockton Pet Hospital (who were able to see and treat Chupie the day we got home) and thank you all for reading this.
