To fund necessary surgery for luxating patella for Roxie

Thanks to this donation, we have been able to provide orthopedic surgery for one of our rescue dogs, Roxie, a 6-year-old Chinese Crested dog suffering from subluxation of the patellas.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Roxie came into our rescue from a shelter in New Castle, Indiana, where she had demonstrated some unusual behavior and fear aggression, making her “unadoptable.” Without a rescue stepping in, a dog like Roxie would most likely have been euthanized. After evaluation in foster care, we learned that Roxie had severely luxating patellas. Roxie had her surgery on April 8 and has been resting and recovering well. Since getting her stitches out, she’s been cozying up to her foster brother, Sebastian! Our hope is that the surgery will eliminate her pain and help improve her overall well-being and behavior, making her a dog much more likely to be adopted. Meet Roxie:
