Girtie entered the Bastrop County Animal Shelter on August 25th, as a stray. Upon entering the shelter it was noted that she had a deep laceration to her front left leg and her tail was broken at a 90 degree angle. Girtie was in extreme pain and because the Bastrop Shelter does not a have a full-time veterinarian on staff, she faced being euthanized. We, Bastrop Animal Rescue, Inc., stepped up to sponsor an exam and x-rays at the local vet hospital to give her a chance. After the initial exam and x-rays - the Bastrop Veterinary Hospital discovered that the joint in her front left leg was completely shattered. We have contacted a couple of orthopedic surgeons in the area and the best option for Giritie is going to be amputation.



Girtie is currently on pain medication, but medication can only mask her pain so much. Girtie's front left leg needs to be amputated ASAP - this will help to relieve her pain and it will put her on the road to recovery.

Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated.
