Pookie, another male, needs a test for Cushings Disease which is $250.00.
Mandy needs both eyes removed, has a collapsing trachea, and needs heartworm treatment, which totals $500 plus.
Miss Chloe, a sweet, elderly female with chronic ear infections and tumors in her ears needs $500 plus for her medical bills.

In unrelated pet news, in Boston, Massachusetts, an Angell Benchmarks Program through MSPCA-Angell has been launched in memory of Elisabeth Endicott Weil, who passed away in 2009. When Weil passed away her husband Henry said that her last cat was so attached to her that the feline lay next to her for two hours after her death purring and now sleeps in her chair.
Since Weil’s widower Henry wanted to find a way to honor her love for animals through the MSPCA, the creation of the Angell Benchmark’s program, which allows donors to honor or remember beloved animals with a plaque that will be installed on the seated areas in Angell’s waiting rooms was born.
“On Dec. 21, 2010, Mr. Weil and members of his family joined MSPCA-Angell President Carter Luke Dr. Douglas Brum (who had cared for Elisabeth’s cat), and members of the MSPCA-Angell Development team to unveil the Benchmark in memory of Elisabeth,” a press release stated.
