Rattle’s Surgery!


People tried catching Rattle for about a month when our wonderful friend Toni and her husband Justin committed to catching him, and our awesome fosters, Taylor and Teri, have committed to his recovery. 

Unfortunately since Rattle was running for so long he tore his ACL and needs surgery to repair it. The surgery is estimated to cost around $5000 (if not more) and that does not include the follow up visits, as well as, his neuter and vaccines. Rattle is currently on pain medicine and surgery will be scheduled soon.

Rattle is a young boy, is really sweet, and he's doing well meeting the dogs in his foster home. Rattle also did well meeting cats, but he didn’t particularly want to be around them after he was smacked for getting too close. He's learning to be crate trained, has done amazing with potty training, and we are working on his separation anxiety.  He LOVES to cuddle and be with his person!

If you are able to help in any way, every little bit helps and please share!  https://ringdogrescue.org/
