Jacob is a sweet 2-year-old who just arrived at our shelter via Austin Animal Center, where he was surrendered by his owner. He was hit by a car and as a result has a badly broken leg compounded by a severely dislocated hip. Both require immediate surgery. If Jacob doesn’t receive the necessary procedures by Wednesday, he will be immobile for life.
Jacob’s leg fracture is close to his knee and cannot be repaired until he receives surgery on his dislocated hip. His needs include a Femoral Head Osteotomy for his hip, and a plate repair of his tibia on the opposite side. This will cost about $2,800; not including rehabilitation, ongoing care from staff, or other post-surgery support and medication.
To help Jacob get these surgeries by Wednesday, donate today.
