Fundraiser for Rey’s 1st surgery
Rey got her Christmas wish; she has been cleared for the first of 2 surgeries to repair her rear legs! They will do one leg at a time. The first surgery is scheduled for late January.
The surgical estimate, including our rescue discount, is $3,000 per leg. We will fundraise for one surgery at a time. Moving forward with the second surgery will very much depend on how the first one goes. Of course, we hope it is a huge success, and we are able to move forward with surgery for the second leg, but we will have to wait and see.
Rey is a heartbreaking example of how poor puppy mill breeding practices can destroy the lives of the dogs they produce, and the humans who purchase them. Rey is just barely a year old and is suffering from he most severe level (grade IV) of patellar luxation (the dislocation of the knee), and both knees joints are swollen and arthritic. She has a deformed tibia and malformation of her femur. She is disabled; with very limited use of her hind legs. Read Rey’s story.
