Prince was abandoned at a kill shelter due to a birth defect. The bones in his hips and legs are not attached with connective tissue. His legs are supported by muscle and ligaments only. He was on a termination list when a wonderful rescuer Phillis came in and paid for him and his brother who also has minor birth defects and took them in. Phillis thought Prince would have to be uthenised, her warm heart did not want him to die alone on a cold table. I spotted him at an event Phillis was having to rehome other dogs that have been abandoned, he was such a smart sweet boy, I knew I had to be a part of his healing. I have taken Prince and his brother in, my health center is covering cost of rehibilitation therapy for both puppies but Prince needs more. His back is hunched to compensate for the weight of his body on his legs, the abnormal arch in his back is putting pressure on his internal organs and at times making it difficult for him to breath. He has seen an Orthopedic surgeon, his condition can be fixed with surgery. We are trying to raise the money for his surgery, the cost is $3,500. 00. All recovery end post therapies are being covered by OC Brain and Body Health Center, we just need to raise money for the surgery. Please donate even if you can only give $10-$20 Prince can have the surgery before his organs suffer long term effects.
Thank you, we are grateful to all that open their hearts to the little creatures that depend on our kindness.
