Veterinary Expenses For Missty

Raised by 166 people in 9 months
On Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 in an unfortunate chain of events, Missty, a three year old American Staffordshire Bull Terrier, suffered gun shot wounds by a local City Police Officer in Regina, Saskatchewan. Missty took a bullet to her right shoulder that went through her lungs and had to be retrieved from her left shoulder. She experienced severe bleeding internally that made it impossible to determine whether she would survive the night as x-ray showed only blood in her chest. The bleeding has since been controlled but her shoulder is shattered and she is currently at risk of losing her entire right leg. Missty is a sweet natured, playful pup who is loved beyond measure by her family. Though he would never ask for help himself, I know Missty’s human (Lance) is unfortunately unable to afford the cost of care and surgery already received as well as expected costs of further necessary surgery to either repair her broken leg or amputate it. As someone who loves dogs and knows and loves Missty, I have created this GoFundMe just for Missty so those who would like to and are able to help this sweet pup may be able to come together to support her in such a terrible circumstance. Despite the drastic difference in recall of the events that lead up to and surround Missty’s injury by the Police Officer and Missty’s human, Missty is an innocent victim of this event. Any funds raised will be explicitly used to cover the Veterinary expenses and necessary care for Missty in her recovery journey.

Edit to add as per GoFundMe’s request:

I, Jessalyn Oslie, the organizer of this fundraising campaign am from Regina, Saskatchewan. I am Lance’s (Missty’s human) son, Lucas’ girlfriend. My plan to get the money raised to Lance to use towards Missty’s veterinary and necessary care expenses is to withdraw it to my bank account and then give it directly to Lance to pay the bills as he does not use the internet to receive the funds directly to his own account.

Missty is home. She is still very sedated at the moment and has her new friend “hardware” in tow. The bullet shattered Missty’s bone disconnecting it completely from itself. They took bone from her shoulder, the shattered bone, and ground it all down and mixed it with bone marrow and a paste to use it to reconstruct her leg. She is held together with pins internally as well as quite a cumbersome contraption of pins and rods externally that will stay in for the next 8-12 weeks. She will be on antibiotics for the duration to prevent infection. After 8-12 weeks she will have another surgery to remove the hardware and then she will still have another 8-12 week recovery after that.

Missty is out of surgery and they were able to save her leg!

Lance will be given more details about her leg in a bit but for now Missty is in recovery and did well.

We don’t know what this means for her leg just yet, if she will regain full function or not but we are all so thankful and so relieved everything went well.

Huge heartfelt Thank Yous again to every one who has donated, wished her well, reached out, shared the GoFundMe link and offered support and love. Your donations have given Missty the opportunity to receive the best possible outcome. Lance his family and I appreciate it more than we could say. THANK YOU.

This wouldn’t have been possible without all of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
