The family knew that Slayer would need more antivenom and treatment, but were worried about the hefty costs, until an organization stepped up to help them save their beloved dog. Frankie’s Friends, a foundation dedicated to helping pets with life-threatening conditions, heard about the heroic acts of Slayer and Paco and decided to help.
“The family paid for the antivenom for both Paco and Slayer,” Danielle Martin, executive director of Frankie's Friends, told The Dodo. “Paco was discharged but Slayer got worse. That's when Frankie's Friends stepped in to help pay for the second dose of antivenom, fluids, and three days of ICU care.”
