When 14 week old Coco joined Alyssa and her 3 children at home, it was love at first sight. After 3 weeks together, the family realized Coco was having trouble breathing and was gasping for breath. Scared for their new Siberian Husky and family member, Alyssa sought out resources for Coco. During a time when her world had been impacted by financial loss due to COVID-19, Alyssa contacted Max’s Helping Paws for financial assistance in obtaining the veterinary care Coco needed. After an overnight hospital stay, diagnostic testing and medications, thanks to the support of Max’s Helping Paws and a loving home, Coco was able to return to her family again, breathing well and healthy once again.
