THANK YOU so much to everyone that has contributed to Nugget's medical needs. Anything over and above what she needs goes towards the next animal with medical issues.
Imagine the pain of tearing the soft tissue behind both your knees. Imagine trying to walk with that sort of injury. Imagine trying to live a happy life. For Nugget this constant, searing pain is her life.
But you can be the one who takes that agony away...
Nugget is a goofy girl, who wags her tail so hard that she has hurt it a couple times while in her kennel (we now keep it bandaged). But in order to recover she needs to rest. And she will need to rest more once she's had her surgery to repair the torn ligaments in her legs. Thankfully, after a few months of recovery she will be free to wiggle and run.
UPDATE - Feb 19: Unfortunately Nugget was too rambunctious after her surgery and now requires additional surgery to repair some of the pins & stabilize her knees while they heal. During the first days following her surgery, she will need to stay in vet care to ensure this issue doesn't happen again.
With your generosity and love Nugget will get the surgery and rehab she needs to live a happier life. Will you make her tail wag?
*Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Nugget until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.
