Sam's Emergency Surgery
Organized by: Micaela Berg
On the night of August 4, part of the fence in the Berg's backyard fell over after a strong wind. Scared by the noise, both their labrador retriever's got out of the yard. Scott went looking for them and found them as soon as he could, but unfortunately it was not until after they had been hurt. Maggie ended up with just a few scratches, so it seems Sam got the brunt of the damage from the hit and run. She ended up with at least 3 serious fractures. The vet can't perform surgery until Thursday, August 7 because they are still trying to stabilize her. Hopefully, if everything goes well, she can return home on Sunday or Monday, but then she will be confined to a crate for about 3 months. The family is obviously very sad and upset, not to mention very concerned with the cost of the bills that continue adding up. The rough estimate so far is over $7000, so we are trying to help any way we can to ease the burden a little bit. Every little bit counts, and even if you can't afford any donation, please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers!
