Cookie was severely injured when she was hit by a car in Rhode Island & left to die on the road. Animal Control brought her to OSVA. http://www.osvs.net/

She was stabilized & given IV pain meds...but that was only the beginning...

Her owners were located & denied treatment. More importantly, Cookie was NOT happy to see them. They tried to fight paying the bill for the pain meds the vet had so generously administered. BOTTOM LINE: If they weren't getting her back, they didn't care what happened or who was helping her. They wanted out & left Cookie behind without a care as to what would happen next.

Cookie is just a baby at 2 yrs old. Curly Tail was contacted (as well as several other orgs) by Linda at Just a Touch Rescue. After speaking to the lovely vet, we learned the severity of her condition. She was very badly broken, in several places.

Her forelimb is terribly smashed. Her hip is broken and she needed a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femoral_head_ostectomy

The recommended surgery included plates to be put in both fracture locations + the FHO. Original estimates came in around $7000. Initially lots of rescue groups were pulling together to help Cookie b/c this would be a hefty bill for any org.

While Cookie sat in the ER vet, everyone was trying to come up with a game plan to help Cookie.
• Who would be responsible financially?
• Were there other surgical options available?
• Where would she be fostered post op?
• Should she be moved to NYC for surgery?
• Would Cookie survive this extensive surgery?
• Will she be able to walk again?
