Pick of the Litter: Meet Lady

Pick of the Litter: Meet Lady

 

Lady is a 1.5 year old mixed breed dog that was recently returned to the RISPCA because of hip troubles. Lady was first adopted in September 2020 after coming to the RISPCA from South Carolina. Over the past year, Lady gained too much weight which aided in the current issue with her hips. Before the RISPCA is able to make Lady adoptable again, they need to get one of her hips fixed. The viable surgery for Lady is known as FHO surgery (femoral head ostectomy) and will cost up to $2500. We are hoping that once one hip is fixed and she continues to lose weight (15 lbs. lost so far!), then the other hip will mend itself and a second surgery will not be necessary.Lady

If anyone is interested in helping Lady, they can contribute to our Love Doesn’t Discriminate fund. We use this fund to help animals receive the care they need to help them get adopted.  https://rispca.com/services/love-doesnt-discriminate-fund-2/
