The veterinarians who have cared for her tell us that she is still a puppy, perhaps about a year old. Since she is a rescue we don’t really know for sure but we do know that she has suffered. Cupcake was likely abandoned and certainly abused. X-rays show buckshot in one of her legs. In October she was taken in by volunteers in North Carolina after being hit by a car. Once she was nursed back to health, she was transported to her foster family in New Jersey where she is today.
Perhaps one of the happiest, sweetest dogs you will ever meet, Cupcake, a popular and frequent guest at the fabulous Wonder Bar Yappy Hour in Asbury Park, walks with a pronounced limp and often whimpers in pain. She has difficulty climbing stairs and can't jump up or down from the bed or furniture. This is due to a recently diagnosed congenital issue with both hind legs. Her immediate need is a surgical procedure to fix her right hind knee and eliminate her pain. She may also need a second surgical procedure, at some point in the future, to correct a similar problem with her left hind knee.
Donations to Wag On Inn have paid for all examinations and x-rays to date but the funds simply do not exist to pay for the surgery. Our goal is to raise enough to pay for the first surgery on her right hind knee and the follow-up care, which is estimated to cost $3,443.00. Please consider donating to help Cupcake. Thank you.Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money for Wag On Inn Rescue, and any donation will help make impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
Chara is another dog in our care requiring orthopedic surgery on her knee and ACL. Chara was rescued from Newark Humane after she was surrendered by her former owner. It soon became clear that Chara was in severe pain due to arthritis, a loose kneecap and a torn ACL. Chara will have surgery with Dr. Thatcher at Squan Animal Hospital to repair her injuries and give this wonderful pup a pain free life.
In order to pay for Cupcake and Chara's surgeries, we must come up with $6,000.
