Tripp, the beagle mix, was hit by a car and suffered a broken hip and leg. His owners took him to the vet, but they evaded the vet’s calls, so the vet performed the minimum care and sent him to Young Williams Animal Center (YWAC) to be listed as an abandoned dog. Thankfully, YWAC has their own vet and a robust rescue program. Tripp has received the needed surgery, but it hasn’t come without cost. We kicked in $300 on the $800 fee.
Diesel is a 6 year old male Boxer mix who came to Young Williams Animal Center (YWAC) as a stray. They noticed he was sitting oddly and seemed to be in pain. After some x-rays, they found that he had torn two cruciate ligaments, requiring surgery in both knees to repair them. We contributed $300 toward the high cost of his November 20th procedures. They still need over $2,000 to cover the cost. Donations can be called in to YWAC.
Royal came to Young Williams Animal Center (YWAC) in an emergency transport from South Carolina because her shelter had been evacuated due to Hurricane Irma. Royal had been brought to her original shelter after being hit by a car, and the evidence of her trauma could be seen in the road rash on her face and legs and by her pronounced limp. Even after enduring a traumatic injury, being taken to a shelter, and then taking a six hour van ride to another shelter, her spirits were high. She had nothing but kisses for the people helping her off the van and patience with the excited dogs rushing up to smell her. In addition to the basic vet care YWAC provides every new shelter pet, Royal needed multiple radiographs, an orthopedic consult, surgery to repair two dislocated joints, pain medicine, antibiotics, and a special brace. We kicked in $300 on her significant vet bill.
