Tazz’s Surgery Fund

Our fur baby boy Tazz is a 4 year old and very energetic Australian Shepherd, he had a horrible accident on Sunday night, November 12th around 9pm. When we let the pups out for about 5 minutes, Tazz and our other girl Aussie, Roxy, got out from our backyard and ran onto a residential road (Old Grove Road). When we went to let them back in only Roxy came in, my husband David began yelling for Tazz and that’s when he ran out to find him. Both of our cell phones rang and I answered, but only to hear unbearable bad news from our other neighbors. Tazz had been hit by a truck and the guy/gal had taken off without any concern for the dog they had just hit. Luckily, our neighbors who called us had heard tires screeching and a loud yelp from Tazz, that’s when they ran out of their home to find him on the street and bleeding out. When we received the phone call, I immediately grabbed the keys, phone, got in the car, and drove that way. David was lying on the ground next to Tazz to comfort him and when I arrived David picked up Tazz and we began driving toward the Animal Emergency Room immediately. Thank goodness for the Mission Animal and Bird Hospital, they put Tazz on pain medication and began treating him, he had lost so much blood and was pale in his gums. Tazz has been at that hospital since the night of the accident and has had a series of very costly treatments, an oxygen box to help him breathe due to the extreme bruising of his lungs, staples for his lacerations, very good pain medication, fluids, catheters, and so much more. His main diagnosis aside from all the other issues is the multiple fractures of his pelvic bone and loss of leg movement, he will need a reconstruction surgery of his pelvic bone and and will have to have hardware put in. We’ve been able to cover his treatments these past few days but we are asking for some help for his surgery from our family and friends. Tazzy is family and we would give anything to have him longer, we’ve spent money on buying cars and other things that probably aren’t necessary throughout our lives, but Tazz is worth more than any car or any shopping trip. He means the world to us and I know he’s touched some of our family and friend’s hearts, he may be crazy and wild but he has always given his love out. We only ask if you could give him the same, thank you so much for reading his story and watching his video, please share this and keep him in your prayers. ❤️
