Emergency Medical Fund for Lucie
Lucie has already had a very hard life. She was rescued from an abandoned home in Hillsboro, and had likely been used for breeding. After finally opening up to our family and forming an inseparable bond with me, we all hoped her hardest days were behind her.
My family is beyond upset and can't possibly understand why or how someone could choose to target a life like this.
Lucie was admitted to the ICU at Dove Lewis after being initiall seen at Bethany Family Pet Clinic. After a difficult weekend, doctors were able to control her shock and stabilize her vitals, reset a displaced hip, and get her a feeding tube. We are waiting to see how things go, if she will need further surgery, a tail amputation, or what other complications and rehab needs might arise. We are taking it day by day.
We want to thank everyone--from the bottom of our hearts--who has donated and shared this page--it means the world and we are so deeply humbled by all the love and support that has come to Lucie, me, and my family.
We are still seeking help for the tremendous costs, as we still do not have a final number from the doctors and don't know how much this will end up costing--depending on how Lucie recovers, she may or may not need surgery. But she will need lots of rehab and love. Thank you.
Update on the witness: The other driver who witnessed the incident and was kind enough to pursue the driver but wasn't able to get his license number. He found my daughter's post on Facebook and we have been talking with him, and a reporter from Hillsboro to see if more information about the driver comes forward.
Much love to everyone.

All my love,
Alma and Lucie
Tonight, Lucie went into surgery after all since her hip went back into displacement, and her tail was amputated. All this has increased the total expenses significantly--we have already put over $10,000 on credit cards between Bethany Family Pet Clinic and Dove Lewis, and we don't know how much more it will cost to rehabilitate. So we will continue to hold this funding account open to help our family as we navigate this financially.
Thank you so much, we will keep updates on Lucie's progress.
The costs will only keep rising from here, and depending on how many surgeries she needs, and what kind of recovery treatment she will need, this could go as high as $10,000.
I still feel very traumatized from all of this. I haven't been able to process why someone would do this to Lucie, or to me. I feel sick in my soul when I think about that. But seeing the willingness of so many people to help, so many of my family and people I have never met, it makes me see there is still goodness in the world.
