A good samaritan saw a post on Facebook about a dog that had been on a porch for two days, unable to move and in pain. The original person who found the dog posted they could not keep her and did not have any dog food to feed the poor, injured dog.
The woman was going to run the dog off her porch until she noticed the dog was hurt. She said she did not want to call the shelter, but the dog was injured, couldn't use one rear leg, and had electrical tape wrapped around the other leg. The good samaritan convinced the woman to release the dog into a local rescue's care.
Krewe de Rescue was contacted by the good samaritan and they told her they would help with the dog, now known as Barley. The good samaritan, herself, has five rescue dogs of her own and could not afford the financial responsibility of another dog. especially an injured dog in need of medical care, but would foster the dog if the rescue took Barley into our rescue.
Barley's new foster was able to take him to their vet Dr. David Martin at Parkway Animal Hospital. Dr. Martin determined Barley needed surgery to save her leg. Barley will need a FHO (which basically means they will need to remove the ball from the hip and leg joint). The vet quoted a price of just under $500.00, but that will not cover the x-rays, medicine, aftercare, hospitalization and routine vetting.
Please help us save Barley's leg by donating to her surgery. You can also purchase her items from her wishlist to keep her comfortable, as well as ease some of the financial burden for her new, amazing foster mom.
