BENEFITING: SECOND CITY CANINE RESCUE
Angel is a sweet, 4-1/2 pound 9-month-old maltese mix rescued from the streets of Aurora, IL. When she was found, she was filthy and even had gum stuck in her fur :-(
She was also found with a horrible injury to her leg, which caused her to have a hard time walking.
We took her to an orthopedic specialist, who took x-rays and determined that she had multiple injuries over a period of time. Her kneecap was pushed all the way up to the inside of her thigh! They suspected abuse rather than one traumatic event like a car accident. Not one, not two, but THREE surgeries are required over a period of time to help her walk normally and without pain. The total cost of this treatment is $2490.
She had her first of three surgeries in May 2013. The "skirt" she is wearing in the photo is actually a barrier so that she cannot chew on her incision :-)
We at Second City Canine Rescue want to help this sweet girl (just look at that face!) and are therefore raising money to provide the treatment that she desperately needs. Please consider being an "angel" for Angel!!!
