    • Tragically, sweet Star was hit by a car a couple days ago. We were called and asked if we would be willing to take her into our rescue and of course we had to help! Initially we were unsure as to the extent of Star's injuries, but when she was further evaluated at the vet we learned her spine had been shattered because of the impact which had left her back legs paralyzed. Her doctor in Boise recommended that we find a rescue for her that specializes in paralyzed animals and that's when we contacted Heath's Haven so we could partner with them for Star's ongoing care and medical needs. The doctor recommened she be placed in a cast to allow time for the bone fragments to heal and fuse together. Following this she will be outfitted for a wheelchair and will lead a mostly normal and happy life as many dogs in wheel chairs already do! The expenses associated with her care are signifigant. The cost for diagnostic testing, the cast, daily boarding for a special needs dog, her new wheel chair and future therapeutic care is significant and we desperately need your help! Unfortunately we can't proceed with any further care until some of the funds have been raised to allow us to make a payment at the vet clinic. Star's spine may have been shattered, but her sweet spirit was not! Donations can also be made directly to: Friends of Burley Shelter Animals Account at WestVet Animal Clinic by phone or mail. 5019 N Sawyer Ave. Garden City, ID 83714 · (208) 375-1600. Thank you so much for helping Star!!!
