URGENT HELP – DONATIONS NEEDED – PLEASE SHARE
We need your urgent help for Sooky. We are reaching out for your help tonight. As you know COVID hit us really hard and we were unable to fundraise through last year and to be honest this year has started the same and we have no idea what the future for this year does hold so we really need your help tonight.
As many of you will remember Sooky was surrendered to us last year during the Victorian COVID lockdown. Sooky was taken to a vet clinic for euthanasia at the age of 12 with gastrointestinal complaints.
Despite the vet team being unable to find any concerns for her the owner decided to proceed to euthanasia. Lucky for Sooky the vets assessed her to be a healthy dog and contacted us for help with the consent by owners to surrender.
While Sooky didn’t present with gastrointestinal issues our vet team assessed she did have patella issues in one of her back legs. As Sooky had no other health concerns we proceeded with surgery which she recovered from remarkably well.
In the last few weeks Sooky started showing lameness in her other back leg and upon further investigation we have been advised Sooky now needs her other patella attended to. While the costs of these surgeries are significant we know that Sooky is healthy in every other way and this gives her the best opportunity to be pain free. Our vet team have advised that this is common issue many owners face once one leg receives treatment that the other can become lame in the first 12 months. T
he estimated cost for Sooky surgery is $4,500. We need your urgent help to raise these funds tonight. Sooky is booked for surgery on TOMORROW morning and will again undergo 6 weeks of rehab, rechecks and containment to get the best possible result for her.
Just $5 from each and every one of you would get us over the line. It’s the cost of your next cup of coffee in the morning but one that will help us save SOOKY.
Please also remember to write the word DONE below when you have donated and please please share this with your family and friends. Sooky needs us tonight.
