Hip Replacement for Penelope

32166466_1534363998101171_r.jpegHello everyone! My name is Penelope May Pendleton and I was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia at a very young age (8 months old). My mom has tried to save my back right leg with medications, physical therapy and multiple vet visits (she even got me my own wheel-cart for walks). At this point, it's getting harder for me to walk at all on my own and go potty so hip replacement surgery is our only option. People have told my mom to leave me at a shelter but she loves me too much for any of that. Instead, she found a small animal orthopedic surgical team at Purdue University who is willing to take my case and operate on my hip! After all the money we've already spent, we are asking for any donation from you to help us get to our goal to cover my surgery, pre-surgery X-Ray/office visit fees, and medications. Any remaining amount will be immediately donated to the Chicago Animal Care and Control Center and/or PAWS Chicago. Thank you so much for your help! 

PS: If you can't donate at this time, just remember to be kind to all animals!
