GOUVERNEUR — A puppy with a birth defect will now receive potentially lifesaving surgery she needs thanks to the community’s support.

Felicity, a 21-week old yellow Labrador puppy, is suffering from a congenital bladder defect called ectopic ureter. If left untreated, Felicity’s condition could become life-threatening, exposing her to kidney tract infections, scalding and chronic urinary tract infections.

The surgery, which has to be performed at a Cornell University Hospital for Animals, Ithaca, will cost $3,000.

Friends 4 Pound Paws, which rescued Felicity after she was found abandoned in an apartment, recently embarked on a fundraising campaign to raise money for Felicity’s surgery. In just under two weeks, volunteers have raised over $4,000 for her surgery.
