My friend’s dog Liam had to undergo emergency surgery for a ruptured gallbladder. The surgery happened today and he pulled through successfully. Consider chipping in to help Jay pay for the cost of Liam’s lifesaving sugery.
Jay is an animal rights activist and rescued Liam from a lab where he was a test subject. “He was used for 3-4 years in a series of horrendous, useless toxicity tests, in which they burned various chemicals onto his exposed flesh in order to determine that they were toxic. After he escaped death at the lab, thanks to a concerned citizen who was able to get 12 beagles released, he was rehomed with Jay Johnson, a dedicated animal rights activists who took Liam into his home and later adopted him. When Liam was released, he was a severely traumatized soul - terrified of walking on grass, only willing to wag his tail until someone touched him, and shrunk at loud noises and sudden movements. Jay was slowly able to teach Liam, who had formerly lived in a concrete cage with no positive human interaction, to trust humans, to run in the grass, to sleep in a bed, and to love life the way that every dog has a right to. Since then, Liam and Jay have been inseparable. Jay wrote a tear-jerking essay on Liam, his journey, and how much he means to him, which can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/jay-johnson/more-than-a-number/118055661579951”
From Jay: “I feel weird asking for money, but at the same time, I took out a line of credit to get this surgery and I am living on a students budget right now. If you are in a position to help, it would really mean a lot. If you aren’t, please do some
thing for animals today that isn’t based on money, all the other ones deserve your support just as much as Liam does. Trying to stay posi while we wait this out. Fingers crossed.”
Jay is also the person who does Punk Rock Karaoke in various cities which is often used as a benefit to raise money for various causes. Jay has given a lot. Help him out if you can.
