Matilda who was rescued on her last day and last hour from Coachella Animals shelter and had been diagnosed with three large hernias: 1 vulva; at least 1 umbilical; and 1 inguinal. It is unknown whether these hernias were caused by trauma as a young dog or just a defect, however, it is believe that she was kicked with such force to cause all this damage to our poor girl. But, we do know that these hernias are extensive and will take more than one surgery to correct. Matilda had surgery in September but unfortunately, it was not completely successful and now she needs to have a mesh transplant to protect her. We have spoken with our vets and they have agreed to do the additional surgery for $1000. Although she is not in pain, she is uncomfortable so we have scheduled her surgery for next week and need to raise the funds as soon as possible. Matilda is a great little dog that deserves everything we can give her. You can donate directly through by clicking here or you can contact our vet directly and donate on her behalf by calling (714) 535-6791. As always, all donations are tax-deductible. We appreciate all of your support, for we wouldn't be able to even consider helping animals like Matilda without you. You, our supportive fans, are as much a part of our organization as we are. We are in this together. So let’s do this!! Let’s get Matilda the life she deserves.
