The Story

Nomi the Great

Nomi is a typical happy Great Dane. She loves to cuddle and play with her foster siblings, and she loves to be the center of attention. Everyone who meets her falls in love, and there's a reason for it! She's a special one.

But there’s a problem

Nomi is the product of poor breeding practices, and as a result, she has a severe and unique deformity known as a lobster claw, or ectrodactyly. For dogs of Nomi's size, this is catastrophic and will shorten her life span considerably if we don't do something about it.

What needs to be done

Nomi needs a prosthetic. In order for her prosthetic to fit her better, she needs the useless, dangling toe remove from her deformed elbow. She also needs a spay and her teeth cleaned (her mouth smells like death!).

Here's what we're doing about it

We're teaming up with Animal Ortho Care to get her a prosthetic. This will reduce the stress on her front left leg and give her the gift of mobility and a long, happy life. We're also working with Lost River Animal Hospital for her spay, toe removal, and teeth cleaning.

Who are we

Shirley's Angels Boxer Rescue is committed to helping as many animals as possible. We rely on donations from our supporters to make sure the animals in our care get the help they need before sending them on to their forever homes. In this case, we need to raise $2000 as quickly as possible to get Nomi's weight off that front left leg. We thank you for your help!

Hi friends! I know it's been a bit since I posted on update on Nomi, but life has gotten chaotic for me. Nomi is doing great. She still desperately needs a prosthetic, though, and we still need to raise the money for it, but she's enjoying being inside when it's so cold out! She got Christmas presents and lots of love :) We removed her nubbin from her claw and she has been spayed :) Her teeth have been cleaned and she's feeling great! We just need to raise the $1000 for her prosthetic. We're getting close!

The last donation to Nomi was 5 days ago :( BUT I'm hoping that means everyone is excited and trying to help choose the prosthetic colors for her! She really needs her toe removed, teeth cleaning, and her spay!

We are at $480! Just another $400 to go and I can get her spayed, the toe removed, and her teeth cleaned!
