Calum Hood Donates Thousands to Get 5SOS Fan’s Dog Life-Saving Surgery

By  | 

There is an angel on this earth and his name is Calum Hood. The 5 Seconds of Summer bassist is busy playing new music and touring the world with his bandmates at the moment, but when he heard that a fan’s dog needs life-saving surgery to remove a tumor, he couldn’t help but chip in.

A member of the #5SOSFam named Ashley Garcia created a GoFundMe to raise $3000 so that her 9-year-old dog, Reyna, who she calls her “best friend,” can get the surgery she needs.

“[The vet] said it’s a breast tumor and needs to be checked if it’s cancerous,” the donation page’s description reads. “I’ve had her for 9 years and seeing her like that break my heart. I can’t lose her. The doctor said she needed the surgery as soon as possible. The surgery is about $3,000 because she also needs to get spayed. My family and I don’t have enough money to cover it all. And I can’t and won’t risk losing her, she’s my best friend.”

Ashley received a few small donations from various people in the hours that immediately followed the post, but then the 22-year-old swooped in earlier this morning and gave the $3000 needed to cover the entire surgery.

When the girl realized what Calum did, without saying a word, we might add, she was understandably overwhelmed and incredibly thankful.

Calum has always been a dog-lover and recently adopted a little cutie named Duke, who he often posts about on social media.

While it’s not necessarily surprising that Cal decided to do this random act of kindness, it’s definitely beyond heartwarming.
