Have A Heart, Win A Prize

 |  Feb 26th 2009  |   17 Contributions

In September we found out that Dogster member Casper, a 7-month-old Pomeranian, needed heart surgery. His owner held a raffle to help raise some much needed funds for the expensive operation.

We helped spread the word and they sold lots of tickets, raising money to offset some of the bills.

I just got word that the surgery ultimately failed. It looked like a success in the beginning, but unfortunately scar tissue grew around what had been corrected. Casper needs another operation, which like the first, will be expensive. His buddies have rallied around him and come up with another great raffle, you can win some terrific prizes. Items that were all donated by caring Dogster members, you guys are the greatest.

The tickets range from just $5 up to $20, and can be bought now through the 12th, the drawing is on March 15th.

Those are just the prizes from the $5 ticket group, you've got to take a look at the cool items being offered for all the categories. They have a ton of great stuff in the $10,$15, and $20 categories, see it all on the raffle page. Even if you can only buy one $5 ticket it will mean a lot, and help get Casper one step closer to his surgery.

You can read more about Casper's disease, pulmonic stenosis, in his diary. Or you can stop by his Have A Heart group, for k-9's and felines that have a kind heart.

Good luck Casper, we're rooting for you.
