Bug's mom is a single-mother who receives no child support for her son. A few months ago, she lost her job and has been trying to make ends meet ever since receiving only unemployment benefits. When she found mammary tumors on Bug, she got very scared. Her veterinarian understood the difficulty that she faced and offered to reduce her fees. Unfortunately, the family was still unable to afford to save Bug's life. Brown Dog stepped in, paid 75% and Bug is now healthy and happy!
Bug's mom recently enrolled in Paul Mitchell School at Knoxville to become a hair stylist. When she heard that Brown Dog Foundation and John Paul Pet Products are in partnership together, she made the commitment to lead the school's efforts in raising money for us. We are quite excited to have Mary and Bug as part of our family!
