More Info

For those of you who don't know us - our names our Liz, Stevi, and Dave and we own a pet resort in Pittston, PA. Our family business offers boarding, grooming, and daycare for dogs! Although we are not a nonprofit - we are passionate about rescue and have helped many dogs and cats throughout the years who were strays or needed to get healthy and find their forever homes. We also help our city with any lost or abused/neglected dogs when they need it.  We rarely ask for help with the medical bills since we truly like to do our part and give back - but in this case, it is just too much for us to handle alone. 

This is Betty. We named her in honor of the late great Betty White, who was a huge advocate for animals throughout her amazing long life. Betty is a 9 week old Newfoundland puppy who sadly was born with a potentially fatal heart defect.  At her initial diagnosis - the doctor said she would likely only live 6-8 months. We were asked by a breeder friend of ours if we would take her in and give her all the love for the potential short time she has. Once we picked Betty up - we knew we had to make sure there was nothing we could do to save her. Turns out there just may be! 

At our appointment with the fantastic and caring  cardiologist Dr. Goodwin - he explained Betty has three different heart defects. She is indeed a candidate for surgery and he is confident in a good prognosis after the issues are corrected. Her surgery is tentatively scheduled for May 5th. 

All funds raised will be used for Betty's Medical Bills. So far - her initial cardiologist visit was $695 and her surgery is estimated to be $6000. 

We will keep our business facebook page, Betty's Instagram @BettyWithTheBadHeart, and this campaign page updated often.Thank you for anything you can do to help!

With so much love,

Liz, Stevi, Dave, and Betty
