Two rescued dogs needed immediate surgery. Ginger had a herniated disk and looking at paralysis. Breezy had two wounded legs; one needing to be amputated. Surgery couldn't wait for these two special girls! Humane Society of the Upper Valley (HSUV) is a non-profit organization with limited resources but we couldn't let these two go based on just financial considerations. It has cleaned out our special needs account but with your help, we can continue this wonderful program and save more precious lives. Please help!! Even $5 makes a difference and adds up. The two vets did the surgeries at a huge discount to make this even feasible and help us save these girls.

On New Year's Day, like any other day, HSUV rescued two dogs. Ginger: the adorable miniature Australian Shepherd came to HSUV with hair matted from head to tail. After a haircut and a few days, it was apparent that her shyness was actually fear of pain caused by movement and she started having dreadful yelping episodes. Vets determined she had a herniated disk that was slamming down on her spinal cord when she moved. Her future, without neck surgery to remove the calcified bone, would be paralysis and euthanasia. We couldn't bear to see that happen. After surgery, she now RUNS two miles a day and rolls in the snow with total glee. She is a happy, loving, pain-free girl.

Breezy - a loving shepherd mix came to HSUV with a deformed leg from a previous break or a birth defect. She also had a deep cut on her right rear paw that needed immediate surgery with layers of stitches. This foot had to heal before she could endure an amputation of her deformed right front leg. She needed lots of quiet time and love. She was scared to eat food out of a bowl, come in a house, or play with a toy. Now she is a loving 55 pound lap-dog, who gets around as well as any 4-legged dog.

Both girls are still recovering and being fostered by their caring foster parents and will soon be ready for their own loving furever homes.
