Boy sells Pokemon cards to pay for puppy’s surgery

An 8-year-old Pokemon fanatic put his some of his prized Pokémon card collection up for sale after learning the family puppy needed surgery they couldn’t afford.

ABC News in Lebanon, Va., reports that Bryson Kliemann was sorting through his cards when his mom Kimberly Woodruff noticed their dog Bruce was lethargic and didn’t look right, so she rushed him to the veterinarian. The vet determined Bruce had contracted the deadly and highly contagious Parvo virus, which required a $700 procedure the family couldn’t afford.

“It made me kind of sad because usually my brother and sister play together and I don’t have anybody to play with. So, I usually play with him,” Bryson said.

So he sprung into action to save boy’s best friend. He took his collection to the side of the road and raised $65 right off the bat, much to the surprise of his mom, who received a text telling her the industrious boy was doing, along with a photo.

“I know everybody likes Pokémon cards so I just decided to sell them,” Bryson told ABC.

Woodruff then got the idea to use that touching photo to launch a GoFundMe page, with a goal of $800. It’s raised over $2,500, the remainder of which the family says it plans to use either for Bruce’s future medical costs or to help other dogs in need. Bruce is said to be on the mend.
