Urgent! PLEASE HELP KING. We received an email requesting an opportunity to surrender an animal. Upon discussion with the owner, Carri found that King was injured and unable to use his hind legs. He’s in pain and although he’s greatly loved, his owners are not able to get him the specialist care he needs. They love him and are looking at any option to help their dog. Since no other rescue groups stepped up to help this poor boy, It was determined that we’d do what we could to help him.
Carri (Fur and Tails Animal Rescue) along with Find a Home Give a Home Rescue were able to coordinate an X-ray. The X ray was the first step and although useful, additional diagnostics needed by an animal neurologist were recommended. The neurologist is estimating that the cost of the diagnostics will be $3800.00. King has an appointment on Feb 7th with SCAN of Naples.
Since our rescue operates on personal donations, a few small grants (we need grant writers!) and with NO paid employees we are asking for financial assistance to cover the additional diagnostics.
At this time, we’re unsure of his treatment plan… or even if additional treatment will relieve his pain or offer improvement in his mobility. We just feel that he deserves to be helped. Animals are not disposable and this sweet boy needs to be given a chance! We know this is not the easy route, and it will be expensive with a lot of work and heart ache. We’re just hoping to get some help with the financial portion so we can focus on King and his needs.
