About the Campaign

Thank you everyone (84 people!) who donated to Buddy. Unfortunately Buddy was very injured, and his family decided the repeated surgeries he would need was too much. All donations (over $4000!!!) have been refunded. See update section for more info.

Hit by a car

Buddy is one year-old. On Monday February 12th he went missing from his home, on Wednesday the local shelter contacted the Castillo family, Buddy was there, injured. They came and got him, and took him to the vet.

Buddy leaving the shelter (even injured he was so happy):

At the vet Buddy got a lot of pain medications (you can see he is zonked out in the video above). He has multiple breaks on his right leg, including the socket and both femur and tibia and hip. He needs orthopedic surgery to hold the bones in place, a cast will not work, and such procedures are expensive.

Injured Buddy:

The Castillo’s got Buddy to play with their ten (ten!) grandchildren, who come over everyday to play and hang out. He’s a great dog, and the kids obviously love having a dog to play with. Below, Buddy is playing with the grandkids, before his injury:

All donations are for Buddy, and are only paid to the vet with surgery is performed. The estimate is below, click it to enlarge:

    I try to help so many dogs which is why this isn’t much. I hope surgery doesn’t have to wait until the entire amount is raised. I want to see this youngster get on with his life and out of pain. I hope his family keeps a closer eye on him so he doesn’t get out and hit again. I also hope they have the money to feed this cutie and pay for regular vet care!

    My love of Corgis prompts me to donate. I also feel so badly over the look on his sweet face. My hope is that he will get through surgery and be 100% better soon.

    We used to have a corgi named “Fritzi”, seeing this little corgi reminded me of him. Such sweet dogs.

    Why can’t the money go towards Buddy’s care as an incentive to get a rescue to take him (they can apply the $4k towards his surgery)? It’s so sad that half the money was raised and it’s all being refunded and the animal is now $4k away from getting a surgery.

    What’s the plan for Buddy now? The email said the family has decided to put him down, which is very disappointing. But this update said they are exploring a rescue first. Can we get details on the rescue? I would happily submit an even bigger donation toward a rescue willing to take Buddy’s case and save his life, and I’m sure many of the other donators will want to do so too.
