Meet handsome 4 year old beagle boy Eddie who was rescued from the Tyrell County Animal Shelter. Eddie has not been feeling well since he came to TBR so he was taken to NC State Vet School last night. What they found was pretty disturbing. They discovered that he had a ball of TWENTY FOUR heart worms banging around in the right ventricle of his heart. They were moving around so violently they were breaking his blood cells apart. The surgeon was convinced his life could be saved so they preformed emergency surgery immediately. We are thrilled to report he pulled through surgery like a champ and we have high hopes that he will get to live out the life he deserves. As you may have guessed, this type of life-saving procedure does not come cheap. In just a few short hours Eddie's bills climbed to almost $5000. We know the holidays are upon us and we are all busy buying gifts for our loved ones, but if you have a little extra $$$ to spare to help cover Eddie's surgery we would really appreciate it! www.tribeagles.org/contribute
