I'm raising money once again in memory of our sweet Enzo, with a goal of doubling our fundraising to $5,000 in support of Morris Animal Foundation's pet cancer research initiatives.
We raise money to honor Enzo’s legacy and help find a cure for pet cancer in the hopes that, one day, other animals - and their loving families - won’t have to experience what we went through and won’t have to say goodbye too soon, like we did.
How You Can Help Help us fight pet cancer by making a donation (simply click “Support Me” above) and join us for our 3rd annual Enzo Memorial Fundraiser on Sunday, June 23. We'll be hosting a fun event at Green Dog Pet Supply (NE 43rd + Fremont in Portland, OR) with all kinds of fun for your pup, including a raffle of amazing pet prizes!
Enzo’s Story It all started in January of 2016, when we took our pup in for what we thought was a routine urinary tract infection, but was anything but routine. When your vet says your dog has cancer, your whole world shatters in an instant. The tears start and it’s hard to stop them, especially when your sensitive pooch gives YOU kisses to try and make YOU feel better.
Enzo was diagnosed with advance-stage, incurable T-Cell Lymphoma and was given only 6 to 9 more months. We were determined to make those last few months as happy and healthy as possible, so we started seeing a naturopathic vet for alternative therapies - like doggie acupuncture! - in conjunction with weekly chemo treatments.
Then, we made a list of Enzo's favorite things and took him on lots of long walks, snow-shoeing, camping, and hiking adventures - and even took him on an RV trip along the Oregon/California coast! He spent lots of quality time with his doggie friends and family, and made a new best friend - Dr. Keith Weingardt, his new naturopathic vet.
We also participated in our first Morris Animal Foundation Unite to Fight Pet Cancer Walk, letting Enzo take our friends and family on a walk through NE Portland to raise much needed funds to help find a cure for cancer.
Enzo was a one-of-a-kind pooch who, at only 5 years old, lost his battle with cancer on August 9, 2016 after a valiant fight. His death left a huge whole in our hearts, but it also left us with a legacy. Enzo’s legacy is to help make sure other pets don’t have to go through the pain he went through.
Help us honor Enzo’s legacy and join us in this fight to end pet cancer by making a donation today. I know Enzo’s spirit will be right beside us on June 23rd, and I hope you will too!
