Stella Update & Fundraising Page


UPDATE: As of 5:00pm on 12/03/09 we’re a 25% of the way to our goal. AMAZING. Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has contributed, forward Stella’s story on to your friends, or sent words of encouragement. We are so thankful for you.

Click here to donate towards Stella’s HW treatment and orthopedic surgery: 

Stella had a vet appointment on Tuesday where we retested her for heartworms (just to confirm her original test), had her foot examined, and came up with a treatment plan for both. Because Stella’s foot/leg are seriously injured and causing her a fair amount of pain, it is important for her to have orthopedic surgery as soon as possible. Unfortunately, due to the fact that Stella is high HW+, surgery at this point would be incredibly hard on her heart and could be fatal. Our first step is to put Stella through the “quick” heartworm treatment. Once HW-, Stella will go in for orthopedic surgery to correct her improperly healed broken foot/leg. In the mean time, we are managing her discomfort with a pain medication, well-wrapped leg (to help protect her foot/leg as much as possible), and lots of special TLC. Please consider donating towards Stella’s treatment, and crossposting to others who may be able to help. No amount is too small, and every penny donated will truly make a difference for this sweet girl. That being said, we have a LOT of money to raise in the next 32 days – and your help is greatly appreciated in forwarding this link on to your family and friends even if you’re not able to donate this time. Many thanks for all you do to help us keep on saving these pups.
