Luna is a beautiful 62 pound Weimeraner Mix that has been living at the Town Lake Animal Center with APA since February 2016. Sadly Luna was surrendered to the Austin Animal Center because her owners were having a baby and did not want to keep her. Poor Luna! She was quickly transferred to Austin Pets Alive due to lack of space at the AAC.
Luna was understandably nervous when we rescued her and was unsure about her new surroundings. As you can imagine moving from a home to a shelter can be a very difficult adjustment. Luna is a sensitive girl that has grown into her new surroundings but can’t wait to move back into a permanent home where she can rest peacefully and just be loved.
Unfortunately shelter life has thrown Luna another curve ball. She has torn the knee ligament in both of her back legs and needs orthopedic surgery. She is painful and so surgery sooner than later is best for Luna. Additionally, Luna is also having to sit out of play group time and exercise in general which is super difficult for her and prevents her from letting loose and working out pent up energy.
Can you help fund Luna’s surgery and help her get back to health?
