About the Campaign
That’s the nasty kind where the bone breaks through the skin!
Natsu is about 2 years-old and an otherwise healthy, good natured dog. He was rescued from the Rancho Cucamonga City Animal Shelter over a year ago by Rachel. The other night, when she was out, her roommate was playing with him and Natsu ran down the very steep basement stairs, chasing after his cat friend, and fell and broke his left from leg badly.
It is a compound fracture, and the emergency vet does not think it will heal on it’s own in a splint. Natsu needs surgery!
He’s a great dog, the mailman’s best friend. Once Natsu learned that the mailman brings packages of dog food and treats because Rachel is subscribed to food delivery service he happily greets the mailman everyday!
Natsu is nearly 100 pounds, and this combined with the severity of the bone break means only surgery can really fix his arm. All donations are only for Natsu and are paid only to his vet, the orthopedic specialist California Veterinary Specialists.
We are expecting surgery to be about $3500 to $4000, we will have a firm estimate after the specialist reviews all the records in detail. Rachel already started a GoFundMe (click here to see) so we are assisting with more donations. The total will include the GoFundMe and what we raise here. Remember, Free Animal Doctor does not raise MORE than is needed, and we take no percentage off of your donation and we only pay the vet, not the owner!
