BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. – The SPCA of Westchester County in Briarcliff is seeking donations to help two animals recently surrendered to the shelter who are in need of surgery.

Chloe was one of many dogs who spent their lives cramped in a tiny crate, breeding litter after litter, in a practice known as "backyard breeding," where dogs like Chloe are being used to produce puppies for profit by their owners. After a thorough examination by the SPCA's staff veterinarian, it was determined that Chloe needed an echocardiogram on her heart. It was determined that Chloe has a severe heart murmur –grade 6 out of 6 – and needs surgery within the next few weeks. The anticipated cost is about $4,000.

Violet, an 8-week old kitten brought in with her brother by a Good Samaritan, also has a heart murmur. Violet is scheduled for additional follow up with a cardiologist and the shelter anticipates she will either need surgery or medical attention for the rest of her life.

The SPCA staff asks that donations be made to their Mend a Friend Fund so that Chloe and Violet have a chance to live healthy lives.
