Last month, General Patton, a five-year-old English Bull Terrier-American Staffordshire mix, needed an emergency operation that cost $5,000.

His owner did not have the money, so she asked people to donate online through WePay, a website for online payments.

“I wasn’t sure how to raise $5,000, and I knew my time was limited. I relied on my friends and family to spread the word that The General was in trouble. Hundreds of people reached out to provide support,” Cassie, General Patton’s owner, said.
