body shape used by vets, he was a 1. He needed emergency surgery because some of his small intestines had been sucked into his large
intestine. The wonderful folks at Westford Veterinary Emergency & Referral Center discounted their $6000 charge for surgery, boarding,
and many medications by 50%! Mass Veterinary Medical Association Charities will be asked to pay $1000, their maximum for Billerica, and
we were thrilled to be able to cover the rest.
Many of you remember that at a time last year when we had little money, many of our friends rallied to fund surgery for Maverick, found
in a Springfield parking lot with serious hip deformities. We actually raised a lot more than Maverick required, enough to now cover most of
what Cody needed. All of you who donated to Maverick can feel doubly-good that you've now helped Cody too! We will keep you updated
on his progress.
