And so it begins again....21 IVDD surgeries in 2017 and we made it until the end of February that the first little one made it to our door who needed our help, and his name is Rusty.

Rusty has battled IVDD once, and came through, but this cruel condition found him for a 2nd time, and his family was not able to provide the surgery he needed or the rehab after, and so they reached out to our community for help. 

We have yet to turn an IVDD dog away since 2008 and we do not intend to start with Rusty.  Arrangements were made to bring him in, and he immediately made his way to Southeast Veterinary Neurology where he finally had a stroke of luck in that Dr. Wong was awaiting his arrival and he and the SEVN team went immediately to MRI and then to surgery to give him the best chance Rusty had to walk again.

We are not sure if we got to him in time, but we wanted to give Rusty every chance he had to walk and so we went to surgery and we hope that you feel the same way and would have done the same thing and we are here to ask your support to cover that surgery so that not just Rusty can have the chance he deserves, but so that our war-chest is ready to support the next little one that we know is right around the corners.

As always, every dollar counts toward the funding finish line, and even if you are not able to donate, your comment alone helps any of our dogs (as the more comments we have, the more people see our posts!) and by sharing, you never know whose heart you will touch <3
