Help me get this dog out of Thailand

$7,940 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 190 people in 25 months
Meagan Penman   Toronto, ON
tWhile on vacation in Thailand I came across this dog in horrible condition. He lost the use of both of his back legs due to a motorcycle accident and the owner has done nothing for him. He drags himself around by his two front legs to get around, leaving his back legs extremely raw from the friction of the ground. I've contacted a bunch of rescues I'm the area but they are all full/don't have the resources for such an extreme case. Please help me raise money to bring this poor guy back to Canada where he can get the vet care he needs. He's less than a year old and there's no way I can  just let this go without trying to help. I'm not exactly sure how much everything will cost but i think 4000 will cover the initial vet costs/travel fees to get him out of Thailand. Thank you so much!

EDIT: so I got a quote from the vet for how much everything will cost and unfortunately I underestimated the costs by about 1000 dollars so I raised the funding amount to compensate for the added expenses.

Thank you!

Hello Meagan, My husband Martin and I we live in Thailand, Chiangrai. How amazing it is to hear and see your story. One year ago my husband saw in my village a dog stumbling on two legs with after the same story as your dog! And as wheelchair-tennisteacher I had a good idea. So I make a wheelchair from PVC-pipe. Now he can run very fast.Only the different is that the total cost of this wheelchair was 27 USD! But now maybe it is possible you spend from your fund just a nice wheelchair as your dog. We sent later some fotos. Greating Martin and Annette, chiangrai Thailand

This is absolutely wonderful, beyond amazing. How did you deal with laws-- both countries let dogs cross borders with no problem? I travel a lot and see so many poor animals and have always wondered how to do something if one truly needed out.

I have a dog named POoh,I rescued from the streets in Yangling China while teaching and living in China for two years.I managed to get a transport company to hold him for me when I had to return home to America. However the fees are more than I could save. Its almost been two years since I left him in care with this transport company. I feel aweful I didn't know how to setup a fund raiser site on my own sooner. My transport company contact in Beijing has given up on me and told me today that if they don't see any money soon my rescued dog POoh will be put down-killed. I thank God I found your fundraising site and I pray it can help me raise the transport fees for POoh before they kill him.

Actually, Ellen Darlene has a point. No need to get nasty. It does seem Meagan is the individual who rescued Leo from Thailand, and Jamie is his foster in Canada, but since plenty of people nowadays unfortunately lie and create sham fundraisers, Ellen Darlene isn't in the wrong for asking questions.
