New York Veterinary Foundation Raising Funds to Save Yorkshire Terrier Puppy Named “Hannah”

PLAINVIEW, NEW YORK 7-04-10– The New York Veterinary Foundation (NYVF) is appealing to animal lovers to help save Hannah, a Yorkshire Terrier puppy critically in need of surgery.

Hannah3This spring, Hannah, at 5 months old was brought to Garden City Park Animal Hospital (GCPAH) with severe symptoms including vomiting and squealing from pain.

Dr. Steiger of GCPAH administered appropriate care and eventually Hannah was stabilized but would need an MRI to diagnose her condition. The family did not want Hannah to be put to sleep, yet did not have the means to pay for her medical bills. GCPAH raised over $800 to help pay for the MRI which would uncover the need for Hannah to undergo surgery. That’s when Gina, a technician at GCPAH offered to take Hannah into her own home and find a way to raise money for her surgery.
