    Default Jellybean the pup has a broken heart

    Pup needs cash for heart surgery
    By LAURA CZEKAJ, SUN MEDIA



    Jellybean has a broken heart.
    At only seven months old, the border collie already has a death sentence hanging over her furry head in the form of a heart defect called patent ductus arteriosus. PDA occurs when the ductus arteriosus, a communicating blood vessel between the pulmonary artery and the aorta, fails to close properly after birth. The ailment can also occur in humans.

    In most cases, PDA can be fatal for dogs, and the rescue agency that took Jellybean in after her human family gave her up, fear she'll die before she hits the age of two if nothing is done.

    That's why the Bytown Association for Rescued Kanines (BARK) has scheduled an appointment for heart surgery for May 28 at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph.

    But after the non-profit organization's major annual walkathon fundraiser was hampered by rainy weather earlier this month. BARK is wondering how it will pay for the surgery, which could end up costing $5,000. The walk brought in only $34,000, just over half of what is normally raised. The money raised covers the costs of about 30 dogs in foster homes, and half the share of veterinary bills.

    Sharon McKeil, BARK president, said the organization wasn't aware when it took the pup in that she suffered from such a deadly ailment, but even if it was known how sick the pup was, BARK still would have cared for her.
    "She didn't have anywhere to go," she says, adding the dog likely would have ended up being euthanized at a shelter.
    "The thing is once you hear about it, you have to do something," she says.
    To donate toward Jellybean's surgery, contact BARK through its website at Home Page for BARK, or by calling 613-738-0119

    BARK is a no kill shelter. Our previous dog came from them. Great people.

    He has a sweet face. I'm sure once this story makes the rounds, Jellybean will get the money for the operation, and probably a fabulous new home to boot!

    I love the name Jellybean.
