Newport Resident Starts Campaign for Sick Dog

A Newport resident is hoping to raise money for his friend's sick dog.

When Newport resident John Florez heard his friend's dog was diagnosed with immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, he turned to the internet for help.

He created a page on gofundme.com for his friend, Milla Goldenberg, and her six-year-old dog Pinko. 

"Untreated, this disease would have caused Pinko's organs to begin to bleed," said Florez.  "These past couple of weeks have been a struggle for Milla and her beloved dog. While this page can't alleviate the pain and struggle both are enduring, hopefully it can ease it just a bit. We love you dearly Milla and we are all hoping for a positive outcome," he said.

Donate to Pinko's campaign here.

Sadly Pinko passed away this morning. I'm keeping the campaign up to help my good friend Milla Goldenberg. Since her dog started getting sick last week the vet bills began to pile up to the tune of $7000. Hopefully this will shed some light for her during this dark time. Thank you very much Olga for posting this.
