The Animal Clinic tries to help homeless animals in need whenever possible. Sadly, many of those animals come from neglect and abuse cases and require extensive medical care, which can lead to financial constraints. For this purpose the clinic has created Sally’s Fund, named in honor of a shelter dog in need.
When Dr. Fistein first met Sally at the shelter, she was sitting on the euthanasia table, because she was hit by car (probably not the first time in her life) a few days before, was extremely injured, unable to get up and no one had come to claim her. She was in discomfort and helping her would be too expensive with an uncertain outcome, due to her extensive injuries. She was only a puppy and her eyes were so sad, begging for help, so of course Dr. Fistein couldn’t look away . She decided to take Sally to the clinic, to evaluate her for possible surgery.
Radiographs revealed extensive injuries of both rear legs, including femoral head fractures, pelvic fractures, a luxation and an old femoral shaft fracture. At least 3 surgeries were required to fix her and a specialist would have to be consulted. It became clear that her treatment would be too costly. The Animal Clinic asked our friends to help Sally by donating to her account Due to very generous donors, Sally collected more money than any other dog prior to her, she was not only able to have her surgeries but helped support another broken pelvis dog after her.
She has been adopted by a wonderful family and is now known as Mustang Sally and is deeply loved. There are so many animals in need. No one can do this alone. Help us, help them. Donate to Sally’s Fund and help make a difference.
