KAMLOOPS – His name is Rocky and he could really use your help.

The 3 month old puppy was brought into the Kamloops SPCA Saturday morning.

He has an obstruction and he’ll have to have surgery to survive.

The surgery doesn’t come cheap. The estimated cost of the life saving procedure is between $1,500 and $2,500.

The staff and volunteers at the Kamloops shelter have put out the call for help.

If you are able to donate, give the Kamloops SPCA a call at 250-376-7722. You can also go to their Facebook page or their website.
