We have a very special Giving Tuesday project that we would like to ask for help with and this project involves a sweet puppy named Snowball.
Yes, we know, you are not used to seeing dogs featured on our pages, only cats. Usually homeless cats.
But no worries, Snowball has a home where he is loved and adored. Finding a home for Snowball is not the issue.
The issue is this: Snowball had terrible teeth. He was in pain. Since he was living in a household with children, his owner was afraid that, being in pain, he might bite someone. So Snowball’s owner reached out to us for help.
We sent Snowball to Dr. Tom at East Hilliard Vet Services, a man who knows teeth. He said that Snowball had some of the worst teeth he had ever seen and had to pull them all! Every single tooth. Snowball also got a bath and some extra TLC while he was with East Hilliard’s staff.
Snowball now feels much, much better, but we need a little help paying for the bill which was over $2000, even with the kind donations Dr. Tom gave us.
If you can find it in your heart to help us with this GivingTuesday project, we would so appreciate it. The family plans to try to pay us back, but we know they don’t have a lot of extra money. They loved Snowball so much they did not want him to suffer and we are glad we could help.

The photo of Snowball in the hat is his “before teeth were pulled” photo. The photo of Snowball with his sweet, human friend is after having his teeth pulled. He looks so much happier. Dr. Tom also provided us with a photo of Snowball’s nasty teeth and mouth (above).
