Hope is an abandoned female dog living in La Guaira, close to the international airport that serves Caracas in Venezuela. She has CTVT, a venereal tumour and is one of the specific cases that need vincristine to fight cancer. 250$ will allow us to cover the vincristine, the transportation for the vet to apply each of the chemotherapy sessions and some extra material required (like gloves, cotton, syringes, etc).
There are many animals with CTVT in Venezuela, increasing exponentially, due to the lack of Vincristine to treat it and the high costs at which it can be found. Your support will allow us to buy treatment to cure animals and stop the transmission to others, which heavily affects their life quality.
Hope is a specific dog whose life depends on getting the appropriate treatment and all that is preventing us from doing it is 250$.
With these funds we will be extending the help and stooping the spread to dozens of abandoned animales in cities like Caracas, Cumana and Maracaibo that are currently under our indirect care, as we will also be able to Spay & neuter them after fully recovery.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help us stop cancerous tumours in Venezuelan dogs. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
