Tshirt's Donation Drive
Tshirt (lovingly dubbed #BabyTee) was born in mid July 2018, and was pulled with her entire litter from a shelter in Kentucky by Wagging Heart's Rescue program. BWF teamed up with Wagging Hearts to provide her with the best care possible including visits to the primary care vet and orthopedic and veterinary rehabilitation specialists. This young girl has a few congenital abnormalities so we are taking it one step at a time. First, she will be doing about a month of veterinary rehab care at Integrative Pet Care to help her hind limbs get into flexion and work on range of motion and stretching as she has bilateral quadriceps contractures. On October 19th she will go back to the orthopedic specialist for surgery to help release the contracture and for a trochleoplasty which will help stabilize her left knee. BabyTee’s patellas, hips and any rotational and angular abnormalities will be re-evaluated to determine next steps. Since she is a growing puppy we are keeping a close eye on her as continued therapy is a must and multiple surgeries are possible. We have been given an estimate of $2,500 for the October 19th visit.
Right now our goal is to raise $5,000 which should offset some of the initial rehabilitation and surgery costs. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps!
