Help Save Star's Front Right Leg

$1,579 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 2 months
My name is Heather Glassman, and I am raising money to get Star the rehabilitation that she needs.  Star was hit by a car on August 28, 2018 and left for dead.  I immediately took her to emergency that night, where they did x-rays to see if there was anything broken and also blood work.  The x ray confirmed no breaks, however what it DID confirm was that Star survived a bullet wound to her chest from a PREVIOUS incident, as there were no signs of entry.  The doctors were nice enough to remove the bullet for her, and I do have it. 

Star, however, sustained an injury to her front right leg.  She has right radial paralysis - and they are also referring to her injury as a brachial plexus avulsion.  Although Star has not had a ct scan or an mri - both of which are highly costly, the doctors there do not feel as if her nerves are NOT completely severed, based on the neurological assessments that were performed.  She DOES feel DEEP PAIN, and she HAS been progressing.   

Star is in great spirits.  She is sweet, loving and friendly.  She has been at Knowles Animal Clinic since I found her in the street hit on August 28, 2018.  Star will ultimately need a foster while she awaits a permanent home and ultimately a forever home, so I am taking inquiries and interest for this as well.  Although it is hard to determine from her being in a kennel in the ICU area, at this point, both the doctors, staff and myself are going under the assumption that Star would be best in a home with no other dogs or cats, as she does seem overly "curious" about them when they walk by her kennel, not to mention that he is "special needs" and will demand more attention than the average pet.  She is energetic, but also again does have a handicap with her front, right leg.

What I am trying to do now is to get her into a rehab facility where she can get the rehab that she needs for this leg in hopes that she will regain use of this.  Doctors say that nerve damage can take weeks, if not months, to heal themselves.  I am trying to give her as much time as possible, rather than just jumping to the conclusion that amputation would be the best. 

I have searched high and low for a rehab facility that would be both good and also cost effective, as raising funds is challenging.  Thus far, the best option financially would be to get Star to Clint Moore Animal Hospital in Boca Raton.  Other facilities might have better to offer but they are also not only double but usually triple in pricing per week.  Clint Moore is only charging $460/week ALL INCLUSIVE for as many weeks as I can afford to leave her there and give her the rehab she needs and deserves.  They have laser therapy.  They have a pool where she will get aqua therapy.  They have also rehabilitated many dogs there who have had paralysis issues. 

They need at least TWO WEEKS UP FRONT for me to even bring here there, and my goal to get her there is NEXT MONDAY, so $920 my Sunday Evening, September 30!!  The reason why I am aiming high is because the more money I can raise for Star - at $460 increments/week - the more weeks Star can get the rehab she deserves and needs - the more time I can search for a qualified foster and ultimately an adopter, while Star is rehabilitating and hopefully progressing, and also if amputation is a result, which at this point we are hoping is NOT, at least I have the funds raised.
