Surgical Care for Morgan

$21,203 of $8,000 goal

Vicki Johnson Powell  SANDSTON, VA
Morgan is a one-year-old lab mix recently rescued from the pound in Amelia County, VA. As a stray there, she had suffered several bullet wounds, the worst shattering the humerus of her right front leg. An initial surgery to repair the bone was performed but was unsuccessful. This front leg will now need to be amputated.

Sadly, Morgan has luxating patellas and torn ligaments in both rear legs. The condition needs to be corrected to allow her to remain mobile. Morgan's amputation will take place February 13, 2014. The first surgery on the right rear leg will be March 24 and an anticipated 8 week recuperation time will be allowed before the second rear leg is operated upon.  It is unkown at this time whether or not Morgan may require physical therapy.

Once she has healed from her surgeries, Morgan will work with Therapy Dogs, Inc. and their local group, Caring K9s, to become a therapy dog.  We believe she will be a wonderful inspiration to others who have lost limbs and need encouragement.  Please donate to help her!

Any amounts raised over our goal will be used to help other dogs in our care.

CARE Rescue is a 501c3 IRS non-profit organization and all donations for Morgan's care are 100% tax deductible. Our rescue is counting on the support of the animal loving public to be able to help Morgan to regain her mobility and health, and then to find her a loving, forever home.

Thank you to everyone who donated to Morgan's surgical care. Several people have said that they were taken aback when they received their credit card bill with their gift noted, because they did not recognize the charge. You will be billed "WPY/Surgical Care for Morgan". Please know that your gifts mean so much to us. Morgan has had the first surgery and is doing well! Because we had extra funds, we have also been able to help Mimi, pictured here, with life-saving emergency care. This elderly dog has a chronic, but treatable, liver condition and your gift saved her life! Thank you!
