We took little Norbit into our rescue this week after he was hit by a car. The people that hit him did not stop to get him medical attention. A good samaritan named Stephanie Hendrix found him and called us to see if we could help out. When we took him to our vet we discovered that he had a comound fracture of his left hip and pelvis. We also learned that he suffered with this injury for about 5 days before Stephanie found him. :(  Our vet Green Acres contacted an amazing orthopedic specialist named Dr. Acker in Ketchum. Dr. Acker reviewed the X-rays and determined that Norbit's injuries could be surgically repaired with plates and screws and Norbit would live a normal life and walk again after he heals. The emergency surgery was a success and Norbit is on his way to restored health and a new furever home as soon as he is well enough!

We were so incredibly lucky that day to find such a skilled doctor to take on this surgery and allow us to make payments. The total cost of the diagnostics and surgery was extremely reasonable and we can't thank Dr. Acker enough! Norbit's owner's did come forward but they are unable to pay for his medical care so they surrendered him to us and asked that we find him a great home. We would appreciate any donation amount so we can pay for Norbit's surgery and continue to rescue other animals in desperate need.  Donations can also be made directly to Sun Valley Animal Center by phone at (208) 726-7777. Our account is under Friends of Burley Shelter Animals- have them look under the name Burley to find the account. Thank you so much!! 

**Any donations received that exceed Norbit's medical expenses will be applied to the medical needs of another rescued animal.**
