Our friends at PAW Fund reached out when Jackie, a 4-year-old Chihuahua, was hit by a car and her pet parent Jamie had to bring her to the emergency clinic. They examined her and performed x-rays to determine that Jackie’s tail was dislocated and lacked nerve function. An injury so severe and painful, it required a tail amputation.
PAW Fund was able to schedule surgery that next day with Dr. Evans at Animal Care Clinic but needed funding, even though Dr. Evans was generously offering his services at a discount. SAGE Compassion for Animals was able to cover the costs with a grant and Jackie was able to get the surgery she needed! Jackie went home the next morning comfortable and on the road to recovery.
SAGE Compassion for Animals is proud to be helping build a network and community of non-profits and veterinarians that come together to keep companion animals in medical crisis with their families that otherwise would not be able to afford the care that they need.
