We would like to ask for your help today to save Brody (Harry), a lab mix, who is about 3 years old. He has an amazingly sweet and gentle personality, loves people and other dogs.
Several months ago, Brody was hit by a car (as the tire tread marks over his body showed), and was not claimed by his owner at the County shelter. He suffered debilitating pain from multiple injuries, including fractured ribs, luxated shoulder on his right, lung contusions, and nerve damage caused by a dislocated tricep muscle on his left. He walks with great difficulty and drags his left paw.
He sat in pain for two months in the shelter before he was designated “rescue only”, due to his injuries, and was rescued by Fur-Ever Home, a rescue in San Clemente. He was placed by the rescue organization into a very experienced foster home.
Brody was immediately evaluated by an expert orthopedic surgeon. In her opinion, Brody needed immediate and urgent surgery to repair the damaged triceps on the left leg. This was the only way to see if the leg could be saved. Without this surgery, Brody would most likely lose the left leg, would require surgery to repair the right shoulder, with no guaranty of success without another front leg to rely on.
Basically, the quality of this precious boy's life would be substantially impaired without immediate treatment. Fur-Ever Home Rescue made the decision to save Brody and get him the urgent care he desparately needed. The cost of this surgery was $4,400.00.
This poor boy does have his challenges, but together we can help him regain his strength, and give him back a happy normal life which he so deserves, especially after everything he has been through.
Together with the surgery and the physical therapy, the cost will run around $8,000, not including his right shoulder repair. Please help us help Brody to live his remaining years happy and pain free. We can’t do this without you. Your donation is tax deductible. Thank you!!
Note from Brody: "I'm so grateful to Fur-Ever Home for giving me a chance to remember what it is like to be pain-free. Thank you for helping me recover so I can be the best dog I can be."
