On Friday, March 20th, our beloved Koufax was found bloodied and badly injured in a presumed "dog fight." He was raced to Orange County Emergency Pet Clinic in Fullerton where he was treated for lacerations to his face and legs, recieved stitches for a torn ligament and was treated for a dislocation in his hip . After spending the night in the hospital, Koufax was transferred to our primary vet, Anaheim Animal Clinic, where we learned his leg had redislocated and would require surgery. Luckily, our little Shiba Inu is a fighter and has been handling this like a champ (I wish the same could be said about his mommy!). With your help, some rest and well-wishes, Koufax is expected to make a full recovery within the next few months. Any donations toward his medical bills are greatly appreciated. We know not everyone is able to help financially but every dollar counts. We are also currently working on other ways people can contribute: clothes or donations toward a yard sale, baked goods for a bake sale, even just spreading the word is enough to help us reach our goal. Keep an eye out for updates on this page about Koufax's road to recovery and to find out new ways to help our cause!
