Little Saint Nick's Hip Surgery on 12/13/19

Hi Everyone!

As you all know, Nick is the foster dog we just recently got out of the Lancaster Shelter by way of the Pasadena Humane Society. This poort little dog was found as a stray, limping and with tire tracks on his body. He was hit by a car and injured pretty severely. He had one surgery at the shelter, but her really needs a FHO surgery. An FHO, or femoral head ostectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to restore pain-free mobility to a diseased or damaged hip, by removing the head and neck of the femur. Nick needs this surgery so he can walk normally again. Once we get his hip fixed, he will be ready to find his loving, forever home. What a lovely holiday gift to give this sweet little dog. 

I have already raised some of the money on #GivingTuesday for Nick's FHO surgery. I am now trying to raise just a bit more to cover the costs. (I put a copy of the estimate below in this GoFundMe post.) If I can raise $1,500, that will help offset the costs of this surgery. I know I can do it with your help. ANY amount will help. 

On behalf of sweet little "Saint Nick" and all the animals onboard The
Rescue Train, I thank you kindly.
