Please Help Bella!

Montclair Township Animal Shelter interim director Nikki Dawson, responded to a call last Tuesday for a dog that had been hit by a car. What Nikki found was an adorable little terrier, Bella, with a shattered pelvis. Bella urgently needs surgery which veterinarians estimate will cost $3,500. She is a strong dog and is valiantly fighting to survive. 
Please help Bella today by donating to her case. With your contribution, she can get the medical care she needs to help her heal. Visit to make your donation.
