3 leg dog Help Charlotte

I have a dear friend who recently lost her pup do to seizures unknown (and was put to sleep). She would have had a rough time without her dog during this pandemic. Her dog helped her through stressful, unsure, scary times. Even though it may have been too soon she missed her friend and needed a partner. She was emailed a picture of a poor pup that was picked up by a sheriff and dropped off at La Grange TX animal shelter. All the picture showed was the dogs leg wrapped up (only) and needed a home. She raced to pick up Charlotte and immediately took Charlotte to her regular vet, when they unwrapped the dogs bandages the damage was so bad you could see the bone. The vet told her the leg would have to be amputated! I told her to call the La Grange animal shelter back and explain what she was having to do for Charlotte. They offered her her $150 adoption fee back but that was it. Personally I do not think animal rescues or shelters should be allowed to except animals without a proper vet on staff! let alone make money off adopting out deadly sick animals! My friend refuse the money, said she was not rich, but would take care of this on her own, but that she was disappointed better care had not giving to an animal and then adopted out for money!!! Out of my dear friends own pocket (Charlotte) had to have her leg amputated (not to mention the days Charlotte spent on antibiotics and fluids prior to surgery) My friend is retired and on a fixed income, I’m not saying it replaced her recently deceased pup, but she is determined to get this dog back to health! Her bills have reached upwards of $2000. I suggested she set up a go fund me page for Charlotte! I told her you never know, my good friend was a nurse for many years and took care of and saved many peoples lives she truly has a heart of gold! Being retired and now taking care of a three legged sweet pup has taken a toll on her. If you could find it in your heart or if this touches your heart any donation would help her cover the expenses now and in the future to keep this puppy alive and provide proper care for Charlotte in this loving home! Thank you all ahead!!! We all must look out for our fur babies because they can not! And whether fur babies know it..... they take care of us...
