The Story

Amazing Anna came to Rescue Haven on February 20th, 2018 after her leg was  shattered when somebody accidentally slammed a door on it. Her owners brought her to the emergency hospital however, the cost to repair her leg  was way more than they could afford so they took her back home with some  pain meds but Anna continued to suffer. When we got the call asking if we could help her somehow, we immediately reached out to the owners. They admitted to not being able to afford not only the repair of this injury but basic  lifetime vet care for her. We offered to take her under RHF but that took  days for them to agree. We anxiously awaited for the call because we  could not walk away without intervening despite never meeting her or  knowing much about her personality.    

But yesterday we got the call that they were ready to surrender her to us so we immediately got in the car, picked her up and brought her right to our partners at Verona Animal Hospital where she was immediately examined and x-rayed (see the smile on her face on the x-ray table!). Despite Anna not knowing us, being in pain and in a strange new place, she was a perfect lady and never once made a peep! She is a real sweetheart!

The x-rays were reviewed and then sent to the orthopedist, Dr. Thatcher,  who called us instantly stating that the surgery needed to be done ASAP.  The X-ray revealed a fracture of her tibia and fibula of her back left leg and there are shattered pieces of bone scattered in the fracture site. The extensive surgery will require a stainless steel plate and screws with additional wiring in order to hold the bones together. 


So we scheduled her surgery for tomorrow February 22nd, because we did not want her to be in pain any longer. So we desperately need help to raise funds for this much-needed intensive surgery. She will need strict crate rest for several weeks afterwards and will need weekly check ups at the vet hospital.

Despite the cost we are committed to helping her get the best care possible and give her the life that she deserves!

Won't you help us help amazing Anna?

*Anna is 43lbs and about 2 years old. She seems good with dogs and children, however, once she heals from her surgery performed on 2-22-18, we will do a full evaluation. She has been nothing but sweet and gentle with all the staff at the hospital!

Anna is recovering very well from her surgery! She is on schedule with her progress and is up and about with the guidance and support from the technicians at Verona Animal Hospital. She is starting to eat better and enjoying her time with the staff!
She had a visit yesterday with our photographer for a mini photoshoot so we can share how great she's looking! We are still inches away from a fundraising goal which will cover the cost of hospitalization and weekly bandage changes. We are so thankful for all the support and prayers that have been sent to this pretty little lady! 
Stay tuned for more updates! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Anna is doing great just 24 hours after surgery!!! We visited with her today and must have given her 1000 kisses!!
The orthopedist requested that she stay on strict crate rest for 6 weeks at the hospital because any false move can cause a severe re-injury. Thank God we are blessed with an amazing Veterinary team where she will get more love than she she ever thought possible!
We just cannot get enough of this sweet little lady! We will continue to keep everybody posted on her status and we ask that you keep sharing her story! We Are less than $1,000 away from our goal! Thank you thank you thank you all!
