Surgery for Sweet Sadie
Organized by: Terra Gardner
Hi Everyone! So sorry for not having sent an update in such a long time. As you can see Sadie is playing frisbee with Maverick again. Actually in and out of the pool. That was a huge goal! She continues to improve daily and we thank each of you for that!

On March 3, 2016 the Powell family received some very difficult news . Sadie (their loving, adorable, energetic, and mischievous 1 and 1/2 year old fur baby) has ruptured the ACL in both hind legs and needs surgery to repair them. Shortly after getting x-rays done on the right leg the previous week, she blew out the left leg. As all animal lovers know, our pets are family. We have to help her.
When their son Jake was diagnosed with autism over 4 years ago they made the decision as a family that Wendy would stay home to be able to focus on Jake's therapy and schooling. They've managed over the last 4 years to get around expenses (i.e. Adam still considers driving around Vegas in the summer without A/C in his car his "challenge"), but they can't get around this one.
The total for both surgeries will be approximately $6,000 and they have already paid $1,500. Please help the Powell family... We need to get sweet Sadie back on her feet and playing frisbee with her brother, Maverick. Thank you!!
