About the Campaign
This is Nala
Nala is a 1 year old, loving, beautiful, Staffordshire Terrier, that tore her ACL a few weeks ago. Nala’s tear was quite severe preventing her from any movement and it needed to be treated immediately. By the time her owner, Elaine, found Free Animal Doctor, Nala had to go into surgery. Here at Free Animal Doctor, we do not fundraise for vet bills. However, we have made an exception for you Elaine and Nala and we hope you can see why.
This sweet rescue puppy, who when she was just born, found her head inside the mouth of a much larger dog. This dog bit poor Nala puncturing her skull leaving her to need extensive medical care. It was Elaine who took her in and nursed her back to health. Elaine had a German Shepherd, Nadia, who treated Nala as if she were her own puppy. Nadia, Nala, and Elaine began their lives together and Nala fit right in.
Nala is Elaine’s emotional support animal. After losing her eldest son, Joel to the war in Iraq, Elaine was disheveled. This would be the second man she’s lost to war. Her father was killed in Vietnam and the amount of loss seemed too much to bear. Elaine always remembered that dogs bring love back into the home after a tragic experience. That’s exactly what Nala did for Elaine. Now, Elaine wishes to bring love back into the homes of the fallen by providing them with animals who need good homes.
Since Joel’s passing, Elaine has lost her business, her home, and had to file for bankruptcy. Thankfully, Nala’s been by her side all the way through. While moving, Nala had injured herself and created small tears in her ACL. It wasn’t alarming nor did it need immediate action. Nala’s leg was braced and this helped a lot for her mobility. But with Nala’s inquisitive puppy nature, she reinjured herself and her ACL had torn all full through. Everything happened so quickly and Elaine didn’t hesitate to get the surgery done. She used her rent money to pay of Nala’s surgery and has now found herself in a very tough situation. As always we pay the vet directly. So, the animal hospital is willing to refund the difference in the amount fundraised so we’d like to help Elaine out as much as we can.
Currently, Nala is on rest for 6 weeks. Elaine says the hardest part is keeping her quiet and calm through recovery. We’re positive Nala will be fine. Now in Nala’s time of need, Elaine will be the emotional support for her and do all she can to get her through the recovery process. The matter of the bill and Elaine’s rent are still at bay. Any amount helps! No donation is too small when it comes to crowdfunding. We thank Elaine and her family for their service. Our hearts reach out to those who’ve fallen in war and we hope that you’ll be able to give back to them, as much as they have to us.
Thank you for your support!
