On average, each animal that enters LCAL's care requires over $1300 in medical care. When Lisa Hamilton and LCAL's board said, "yes" to Enzo, it was clear he would need substantially more care than average.
Enzo had arrived at the Department of Animal Services with a front limb injury and malnourished. Radiographs revealed two separate fractures.
During surgery to repair the fracture, the surgeon discovered the break was older than expected. Enzo's body had already started to try and heal the damage.
More work was needed to help Enzo heal. He needed to be hospitalized for pressure wraps which needed to be changed daily to control the swelling from the additional work needed during the repair. Enzo would spend several days in the hospital.
Thanks to the work of LCAL staff and volunteers, Enzo was given a new chance and a new life. Rested, healing and with a stomach full with healthy food and tasty treats, Enzo is now in the loving home of his new adopters.
But we need your help to save more dogs like Enzo. His medical costs were steep and we are asking for help covering those costs.
