It happens so often for our rescue team, a late night phone call, a family with a DRSF dog that doesn't know what to do. Sparky had gone down almost 5 days ago and they had done everything they could for him. Their vet had said that they could try steriods, but for those of us who "know" IVDD, being down for that long, not able to stand, with no bladder control means that surgery is the only chance. DRSF talked with and counseled the family for many hours helping them to understand what it would take to get him through the surgery both financially and emotionally and that Dr. Wong was ready to operate at 8:15 Saturday morning. We talked and talked, they took some time to think and called back, we convinced them that no matter what happened, that surgery was his only option. At 1AM this morning they were on board to take him to Dr. Wong who was ready and waiting for him at 8. By the time they got there this AM, they decided they couldn't go through with the cost of the surgery and the rehab and recovery that came after, and surrendered him back to DRSF which puts us in a place that our community knows too well...we have a dog in surgery whose family surrendered him for $3,000 and nowhere for him to go. Will you help us cover the cost of Sparky's surgery? Any dollar amount helps and shows Sparky that the DRSF community will always be there for a Doxie in need.....
