Megan's 3rd Medical Fund

Megan's Medical Fund - Help Transporters Without Borders complete Megan’s success story!

A veterinarian suspects that people threw things at frightened young Megan when she roamed the streets in Texas with her painful deformed leg   A “hero” group in there saved her from a horrific life of no love or affection, and recognized that she would not survive a shelter environment.  

Megan’s luck has been changing every day and her story has now become a massive effort that spans from Texas to Maine!  The “hero” group contacted Transporters Without Borders (TWB) to help find her an immediate foster or home.   One of our kind volunteers, Liz located in beautiful Maine, stepped up to foster Megan with a view to potentially adopting her.

While we were able to get Megan to Maine with the support of American Airlines and many TWB dedicated volunteers, we have since learned her journey is not over.  With the help of veterinarians and specialists, we now know that we can repair her leg, instead of amputating it and/or potential lifetime pain medication!  

Can you help us complete Megan’s success story and dramatically improve her quality of life?  We are asking for donations, no matter how small, to help us raise the $4,000 that Tufts Veterinary Teaching Hospital is estimating for her surgery, referred to as a “corrective osteotomy.”  Her specialist team will be able to break her long bone and set it so that it matches the length of the short bone.  At that time, they will determine how best to bring her paw back into proper alignment as much as possible. 

We look forward to updating you on Megan's progress, as two TWB volunteers, Cindy & Joel, will be helping with her surgery and initial recovery time because they live very close to the hospital in Massachusetts.  Thank you all for contributing to this extremely worthy cause and helping us spread the word!
