COCO KARMA FUND

$3,080 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 57 people in 16 days
My name is COCO. This fund has been started to help with my emergency vet bills and ongoing recovery, because so many kind people have asked  to get involved with my recovery.

On Sunday May 20th, the unimaginable occurred:  I was accidentally dragged a long distance behind a car in Owen Sound until I was spotted by a driver on HWY 26 tethered, seriously injured, and helpless.  

It wasn't the driver's fault - he is a kind man, and wasn't informed my leash was tied to his car (the person responsible for this is unknown).  I was rushed to Blue Mountain Vet Services, where everyone worked until 1am to keep me alive.

As you can imagine, my injuries were extensive.  My paws, belly and back left leg were seriously damaged, but I am lucky that I don't have any internal injuries!!

My Mom had just landed in Shanghai when she learned about my accident, and she got on the next flight to come home so she could be with me.  Seeing her,  was a powerful moment for both of us, because normally I am never more than 10' away from her!!!

The first 3 days were the hardest - it was touch and go - but everyday I'm getting better.   I felt loved and cared for by everyone at Blue Mountain Vet,  and knowing how much they love me gave me with will to keep fighting.
 
I've had four surgeries so far.  I've learned to walk again, even though the odds were against me to do so.  Here is a video of me proving ya all wrong:

 
Right now I’m back in Toronto, with McGilvery Vets, and  I still have a long way to go…..I get really excited when my Mom comes to visit me.  It makes me happy that everyone is amazed by my strength, and how quickly I am recovering.

Here's my favourite recovery video:

Wednesday I have another surgery to make my biggest injury on my left leg heal faster. My Mom continues with my care because I keep showing a willingness to get better, and despite my injuries my spirits are high.

Please send me good thoughts for my surgery on Wedensday.....I am really trying hard and have a big spirit through all of this, and I know I am going to get better over time.

Thank you all for your generous support and love!

Today was a big day - I got to go home for the first time in 3 weeks (sporting an enormous cone!) . I am so happy to be home and grateful for the unbelievable care and love at McGilvray Veterinary Hospital. If not for their continuous care and support, it might have been a different outcome for me. Around the clock they were there to help me heal, and provide care.

I am eternally grateful (and my family is too).

It's so good to be home!!
XOXO Coco.

Five days post surgery and I am full of energy and my appetites back too. It's still too early to know if the skin graft is working, but I'm feeling at home here at McGilvery - they obviously love me here and everyone is trying their best to get me home soon! One day at a time, and a long way to go, but everyday I am more like myself.

My mom was by for a visit and brought me my favourite treat: BBQ chicken!!

Thank you all for your good wishes, support and love.

Hi everyone! Day two after my surgery and I'm still going strong. So far everything looks good and I'm wagging my tail and giving everyone at McGilvery kisses. Monday I get to see my Mom! Hoping I can go home soon.

Good news!! Dr. Owen at McGilvery Vets thinks I am a superstar - today I am walking, eating, and happy, even though it still hurts a bit. The surgeon preformed a skin graft to make my biggest wound heal more quickly. I now have two nipples on my leg that use to be on my belly lol- I can tell how much everyone here loves me, and is taking my recovery personally. I really am one special girl.
