IVY - PLEASE HELP
Ivy is incredibly lucky to be alive right now. Believe it or not, Ivy was run over by a car. She crawled up on a woman's doorstep and just wagged her tail. She had apparently suffered all night long before she was able to make it to the vet. Somehow in the night, Ivy crawled under another car. She would not come out from under the car so they had to jack the car up to get her out. In the process, it spilled oil all over her. This sweetie has been through so much.
It turns out that Ivy broke BOTH rear legs (4 bones total). Ivy was transferred to another animal hospital where she underwent surgery to repair both legs. Everyone that meets her is absolutely amazed with how sweet she is, despite being in so much pain.
Ivy has now been through THREE surgeries to repair her legs at the cost of $2300.00. We need your help to pay her bill.

Ivy is just one of many special medical need pups that we have put back together. Our vet bills currently exceed $10,000.00 and as a city shelter, we just do not have the funds to keep on going like this.
Although we are a municipal shelter, we try to save every dog that comes through our doors no matter what their injuries or illnesses may be. If we do not receive some major financial assistance soon, we are not going to be able to continue to save as many as we do.
Ivy is currently living in a small cage at the vet's office because we have no foster homes available for her. In addition to your financial support, Ivy also needs a loving, indoor foster home. If you can provide one, please contact Joan at 870-739-5412, 870-739-1185, or Allison, 901-240-9848.
It feels like are always begging - and we know that economic times are rough, but we believe in giving every dog a chance at life...please support us in our mission.
Thank you so much for caring about our dogs.
