Oh, that we all could be this generous!
When Petaluma, CA serviceman Brett McIsaac was preparing to ship out to Afghanistan, he was concerned about his dog Bud and Bud’s upcoming surgery.
There was only one problem: after McIsaac shipped out, his family found out that the surgery was going to more extensive – and expensive – than McIsaac or his parents, who were caring for the dog, had expected.
That’s when veterinarian Russ Gurevitch offered to do the surgery pro bono. Petaluma360.com reports that Dr. Gurevitch told McIsaac’s mother, ” “If Brett can go to Afghanistan for his country, the least I can do is help his dog.”
Thanks, Dr. Gurevitch!
Makes you wonder – what can you to help care for the pet of serviceman or woman serving in Afghanistan? Foster an animal? Donate food? Cover a vet bill?
