Medical Emergency Fund Page for Aurora
Young German Shepherd mix, Aurora, came through our doors on three legs. One of them is deformed and completely nonfunctional. Sadly, it's unusable and even gets in her way, making it very difficult for her to walk properly. Uncomfortable and awkward movement is the only way this young GS has ever known.
Aurora has visited the vet for examination, x-rays and bloodwork, and ultimately they have determined that for her best chances she needs her back leg to be amputated. There are several checks Aurora has to go through before getting this major surgery, and a long period of monitored recovery afterwards. But this girl is young, adaptable and resilient - the specialized surgery will quickly and drastically improve her mobility and quality of life so she can enjoy the many years to come.
When this sweet girl came in, she was extremely nervous around humans and hesitant to even come out of her kennel. Slowly but surely, she’s coming out of her shell and learning that visits from shelter staff are usually accompanied by yummy treats and lots of snuggles! A lovely foster family is keeping her comfortable and giving her the care she needs while waiting for her surgery.
Will you help give Aurora a second chance at life?
Personal updates for Aurora will be provided to anyone who donates to her campaign.
*Goal includes: x-rays, bloodwork, specialized surgery and recovery, spay, vaccinations and daily care for Aurora until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.
