Another Red Head Needs Help...

We just thought we had to share with you the story of a little red and white husky puppy we heard about today. 

 Sinatra is a 3-4 month old Siberian Husky that was hit by a car on the 23rd May and taken to the Emergency Vet Clinic by a Good Samaritan, as she was a stray they wouldn't treat her but they gave her pain meds and sent her over to animal control where she sat in a cage in sick and injured for 4 days

As you can see from her X Rays she has a fractured Pelvis, fractured Femoral Head, Fractured Left Tibia and Fibula. Due to the extent of her injuries it is the vets opinion she has to have surgery to repair all her injuries at the same time or be humanely euthanized and that is the last thing we want when with surgery she is expected to make a FULL recovery and lead a long happy 4 legged life !! She is going to go to Kansas State for the treatment. It is expected to cost at least $1500 and probably a lot more, but we wont know exactly how much until her our vet can call them tomorrow her X rays and pain meds today were $100. (Update 5/28 costs are expected to reach $2500 for her treatment)

If you can help by donating even $10 it would be greatly appreciated, as the rescue just don't have the funds to be able to pay for all her treatment. 

Sinatra's condition can be verified by Dr Brooks at Meadowbrook Veterinarian Hospital (316) 733-6866

We feel we have a certain kinship with this little pup. It was almost a year ago we took Biloxi in as a foster with a very similar injury. He unfortunately was not able to get the immediate care these donations will allow Sinatra to have. His leg healed incorrectly and just about 1 month ago he had to have surgery to remove the femoral head from one of his femurs. We really think had he been as lucky as Sinatra to get quick treatment he wouldn't have had to go through the pain of the surgery almost a year later.

Please help this little one get a new lease on life! Paw  it furward!

Butt wiggles, Meadow

We were so glad when woo adopted Biloxi, we'd been following his story. And thanks for posting & helping Sinatra as well. Paws crossed she gets the surgery and the loving furever family she deserves.
(Not that anyone associated with bloggin dogs isn't careful, but as Turbo reminds us so often - people are stupid.)
