Help Support Lucys Emergency Surgery

On April 18th my mom's dog, Lucy, was attacked by black bear. After being followed up onto the porch, Lucy came inside and collapsed. She was torn up and punctured on both sides. 

As my mom was loading her into the truck to head to the emergency vet, the bear stood 10 feet away watching. 

Lucy has had successful surgery and stayed at the vet in Traverse city for 2 nights. She is now recovering at home and is continually being monitored for infection. She is unable to stand, let alone walk.

Anyone who knows my mom knows that this girl means EVERYTHING to her. She is a rescue pup with a sad history to begin with.

There is a long road to recovery ahead. The vet said she may never run again due to the extensive damage on her shoulder.

Easing the financial burden of this nightmare is one thing we CAN do to help make it a little less stressful. We all know that regular vet bills are expensive, let alone emergency surgery, hospital stay, follow up care, and possibly physical therapy to help her walk and run again.  

Thank you for taking the time to read. Shares and donations are greatly, greatly appreciated.
