Houdini was found in Venezuela with a tumor eating away at his face.
Help me get him chemotherapy! The first time I saw Houdini I completely broke down. He is plagued with a cranial tumor that is deteriorating his nasal cavity. We have seen similar cases like this before in neglected street dogs in Venezuela. We believe rescue should have no borders and all dogs deserve our help!
New York Bully Crew stepped in to save his life. We are told it took 6 months to rescue this poor boy off the streets! Houdini received a complete physical to evaluate his condition further. We are told he has a good nasal path and palate plus his eyesight and eye placement is good.
His doctor says the only chance at survival he has is getting Houdini chemotherapy. The strays of the streets did not chose this for themselves. They have no-one to care for them, to give them the lives they deserve.
Houdini was sedated for evaluation and received his first chemotherapy treatment. NYBC works with an incredible team in Venezuela who will be caring for him during his chemotherapy and ongoing care! But we are asking for your help!
This type of care is extreme expensive for New York Bully Crew and we are here to help. We are sponsoring the care of Houdini with one of our “My heart is paved with paw prints.” aprons, pillows, keychains or cups below. Please get yours and help me sponsor Houdini and getting him the chemotherapy he needs!
UPDATE 9/7/19: He had his first round of chemotherapy! YAY. Houdini is comfortable and tolerated his first chemotherapy treatment well. His appetite is good and because of your support, he has a brand new, soft bed. His rescuers are prepared to care for him after his therapy sessions with nasal rinses, medication for indigestion, and healthy diet. Please pray for his strength to continue to fight to survive.
UPDATE 9/27/19: Houdini has make great progress with chemotherapy treatments. His nasal tumor shrink enough so he was able to have nasal reconstruction surgery to repair the damage. He was also neutered.His rescuers diligent care after his therapy sessions included nasal rinses, medication for indigestion, and healthy diet allowed Houdini regain strength so his could withstand surgery. Nasal tumors and TVT cancers are too common among street dogs.
