Pals, I thought I'd kick this weekend off by introducing our newest Helping Paws client. Minnie is less than a year old and recently suffered an injury that is causing her lots of pain. She is unable to run around and play like a normal puppy due to her hip injury, and will need surgery to correct the problem. Here is Minnie's story in the words of Corgi Mom Cherry:

"She was playing with a friends puppy when I heard her yelp. Thinking it was something just pulled I gave her anti-inflammatory and prednisone, as per the vets directions. She did not improve. A different vet gave her a different anti-inflammatory and it was given religiously. She did not improve, so we took x-rays. For some reason the ball in the left hip is deformed at this point. I have been giving her Metacam per the vets directions and she doesn't seem to be improving and the vet said she may have to have the hip operated on. I can not afford to have surgery on my baby.

My baby girl is less than one year old and I hate seeing her unable to run and play because her leg hurts. At this point I am begging, pleading for someone to help. If surgery is the only answer I will have to turn her over to a shelter. I can not pay that kind of bill. I am 66 years old and living on social security. I am barely paying for her medication at this point."

The estimated cost for Minnie's surgery is $1,413. Pals, please join me in sharing Minnie's story with friends and family to spread the word about her campaign. Let's get this sweet girl the surgery she needs so she can frap without pain once again.
