5/11 update: GOAL REACHED!
Updated post: You might remember that Trinity came to APA! and needed immediate surgery on her left hip and her hip is completed healed now! During a follow up appointment, our orthopedic veterinarian discovered her right knee has a torn ligament due to the trauma of her accident. Trinity has already healed so much, but she deserves to live a life without pain and discomfort. This knee surgery will cost $800. Can you help Trinity receive her second surgery?
Original post: A good Samaritan (who just so happened to be a veterinarian) was at the right place and time to save sweet Trinity’s life. The veterinarian witnessed Trinity get hit by a car and immediately brought her into their clinic and started lifesaving treatment, including: inserting a catheter, getting x rays, and administering pain meds. They transferred Trinity to Austin Animal Center on a stretcher and AAC needed our help to come up with a treatment plan for this pup.
Upon arrival at APA!, Trinity was unable to stand, suffering a large open wound on her right side, and had multiple rib fractures. She was seen by our orthopedic surgeon and it was determined she needs an immediate $1,750 hip luxation repair surgery. There is a possibility she will need a second surgery on her other leg for a traumatic MPL injury, as well.
At any other shelter, Trinity would immediately be euthanized due to the extent of her injuries. Here at APA!, we know that Trinity, a two year old dog at the wrong place and wrong time, deserves a long and healthy life. But we need your help. Every gift counts so please chip-in for Trinity today!
