Puppy Needs Shoulder Surgery

Jake and his littermate were rescued by a Good Samaritan in December when they were found on 2' chains on a farm with no shelter.  The farmer did not have fencing to contain them so he staked them outside of his barn, where they could not even get out of the weather.  Jake is about 10 months old and has been lame on his front right leg.  A visit to the vet confirmed he is in need of  shoulder surgery for Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD).  He has loose cartilage in his shoulder causing him pain and if not treated, will cause arthritis making him lame for life.

 Jake is the sweetest pup, who even though he is in pain, still seeks human attention and wants to be petted.  He greets you with a smile and loves attention.  He loves other animals, and will make a great addition to someone's family. 

His surgery estimate is for $3500 and we need your help in making it possible for Jake to have the surgery he needs.    No  donation amount is too small to help Jake. 

We are a non-profit 501C3 organization.
