All money received was used for the medical care of the dogs we rescue. This recent Sponsor a Pet 2018 Q4 check received in January was used towards surgery for Kira.
This grant was used to help pay for the needed surgery for Kira, a 6- to 7-month-old puppy we took in to our rescue from a local pound.
Kira had been found as an injured stray and brought to the local pound not able to bear any weight on her hind leg. X-rays revealed a completely broken femur that was beginning to heal at a 90-degree angle. A specialty surgeon had to re-break the bone and get through lots of scar tissue to insert pins so her leg would be usable.
The surgery cost over $1,500, plus Kira needs physical therapy as she heals in order to have the best chance at a full recovery. At this time, Kira needs crate rest as she heals from surgery. She is currently available for adoption into the right home. Meet Kira here.
