It's time to introduce our last client of August 2014! Meet Hailey, a sweet Pembroke girl who is trying to get by with the hand life has dealt her. Here is Hailey's story in the words of Corgi Mom Tina:

"I am sending this email in hopes that you can help me with my dog Hailey. Hailey is my three year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. When she was around 11 months old I noticed she was reluctant to get up after playing or sleeping and began to drag her back legs. After multiple visits with three different vets I finally found out that Hailey has a birth defect. Her sacrum is deformed and compressing on her spine, so she needs surgery.

For the past two years I have tried to manage her pain, but she has gotten worse. I recently took her to the vet and asked her to be honest with me as to what to expect if I cannot give her the surgery she needs. She said “I’m afraid that if she is already this bad at three, she is going to break your heart by five and have to be put down”. I can’t bear the thought of putting her down. I currently have Hailey on pain meds and am trying to raise money for her surgery.

Unfortunately I cannot afford it. After paying rent, bills, and my student loans I don’t have any extra. Her surgery has been estimated at around $7000. I read on your website that the max is $3000 but anything would help and would be greatly appreciated. I have looked into a couple other organizations but I need to be on Welfare or my dog has to have an “immediate life-threatening condition” before they will help me. I am starting to get desperate I really hope you can help us."

As Tina stated in her email, the estimate for Hailey's surgery exceeds the financial aid cap offered via CorgiPals. I have set her fundraising goal to $3,300 (our cap plus PayPal and Fundrazr fees). Please spread the word for this beautiful girl so we can get her the help she needs to live a long life free of pain!
