About the Campaign

Poor Little Puppers!

Little Summer was turned in to the Moreno Valley animal shelter as a stray, though we suspect she was probably brought in by her owners, in early March. She weighed 6 pounds, and just 5 days later she was only 5 pounds, a dramatic drop!

Why? Because she had a broken jaw, in two places!

Fortunately Stephanie with Miracle Foundation San Diego heard about her when she was rescuing other dogs from the shelter, and found out that Summer had been put on the list to be euthanized that day!

Summer’s Jaw

There were no x-rays from the shelter so Stephanie first took her to the vet for a diagnosis. Multiple x-rays revealed that the jaw fracture was worse than expected. Summer’s jaw was broken in two places, with one break right by the jaw hinge.

The surgery will be tricky and difficult. There is deteriorated bone, and the location is about the worst location for a break. Multiple vets in consultation have agreed the surgery should be done by Dr. Hampel at VCA Animal Medical Center El Cajon in April.

Current Care

Stephanie is personally fostering and caring for Summer while she awaits surgery. Summer has to be fed carefully, but can otherwise live a normal life, as long as care is taken not to touch her jaw area. Pain management is using minimal medications because the vet doesn’t want Summer using her jaw. With too much pain medication she will use it, so that has to be limited, but she is being monitored carefully and is doing ok now.

All donations for Summer are ONLY for her and her jaw surgery. Your donation today is for Summer, paid only to her vet for the surgery, and tax deductible. Can you help Summer get the life saving, and life changing procedure she needs? Thank you!!

    The owners of Little Summer , can’t be charged with animal cruelty , ( if they are the ones responsible for her jaw being broken ) ??

    Summer girl is a little trooper. We met her on the Shelter Island pack walk and she was so sweet. I know she is going to make a full recovery and feel amazing after her little jaw heals.

    I was really touched when I read this now. I thank you for saving her life. You are an amazing, kind human being!!! It brought sadness abs tears to my eyes. but at the same time having a wonderful person like you makes all the difference for this little dog. She is beautiful!!! Looking at her from this picture I’m confident that her surgery will go very well for this sweet baby.
    I will post this on my FB page so that other people can read about this and donate money.
    Once summer has her surgery I think she will be ok and make a really good recovery. God bless to this sweet darling little dog. I wish her nothing but the best. Much love to Sumner….

    Thank you for saving her. I have done rescue for years and I know the frustration of wanting to save each one and not having the $ or help to do so. She’s a lucky one to make it out alive. <3
