Help Kepler's Hip!

Hi, I'm Kepler! I was adopted from High Country Puppy Rescue in April of 2017 by my awesome fur-parents, Erin and Chris. I was a spunky pup with tons of personality! Months later as I grew larger, my mom and dad noticed I had developed a strange hop that appeared to be causing discomfort for me and didn't run and play quite like a young pup should. They took me into a local vet who diagnosed me with hip dysplasia.

Valued at nearly $6-7,000 for hip surgery at AZ area vets, my owners got estimates from all over the US, settling on Ketchum, Idaho, where the estimate came in at $4,800 (for one hip).  Committing to a 13 hour drive, taking off work, and coordinating an overnight stay, Chris and Erin are doing everything they can to help me. I get to go to this mysterious place Feb. 20. 

High Country Puppy Rescue is holding a fundraiser for me at Dark Sky Brewing Company on Wednesday, February 7, starting at 6pm. Come meet me, my amazing parents, and check out everything else going on. You can RSVP to the event on Facebook:   If you can't make the event but would still like to donate, you can do that here.   :)

THANK YOU! Puppy tail wags and wet smooches,

- Kepler
