Marceau is a young dog who injured his knee and needed surgery to fix it. He had a luxated patella. Marceau loves to run, jump, and explore, like most young dogs. Unfortunately, due to his injury he had to wear a knee brace for several months and was not allowed to jump up on the couch or the look out station in his mom’s home. Barb did find a ramp eventually to allow him access to his favorite look out point!
To get back to full enjoyment of dog life, Marceau needed surgery. So, Barb contacted us at the Animal Care Foundation. Working with her and her existing clinic we were able to secure a donation from the clinic of some of the care pro bono, as well as provide $1,100 of funds to help with the cost of the surgery. Unfortunately, due to the cost being over $2,600 (not including after care) these funds were still not enough to bring the surgery cost into a range that Barb could afford.
So, Barb applied for assistance from the Human Society. With this added help, the surgery could go forward! Marceau had surgery in late December and has been recovering for the past month! He is making good strides in his physical therapy and should make a full recovery!
Thank you to the donors and our supporters who made this care possible!
