About the Campaign

Priscilla’s Story:

Priscilla was rescued on April 17,18 by her awesome pet parent Jayden. They bonded instantly! Jayden was told Priscilla had been a stray but it’s quiet sure her history. Currently, Priscilla is a year and some months and is training to be a service dog. Jayden hopes she will be able to help others out.

Need for surgery:

After Priscilla’s second extended play at the dog park, Jayden learned that over exercise was causing Priscilla to limp. This caused an alarm and Jayden took her to the vet. On July 7th x-ray’s were done on her knees where she was diagnosed with Medial Luxation Patella (MLP). The only way to fix this is to have the knee socket sanded down deeper, to keep the knee in place. Right now the knee is moving in and out of place when she moves.

 

Reason for help:

Jayden rescued this perfect dog not knowing she would need this extensive surgery TWICE!!! He only found out about a month after getting her she needs surgery. Each leg is about $4,000. Jayden already works two jobs to make a living, adding each surgery to the mix isn’t something he is able to do. He loves Priscilla and hates to see her stuck in the house without exercise.

The worst of the legs is going to be done first. Then once that is healed he can work on getting a second surgery raised.

Jayden is trying so hard to raise money for Priscilla, he even made a car magnet with her Gofundme website.

He hasn’t made much headway with Gofundme so he turned to us. Pricilla’s Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/misspriscillacortez

    Wish I could donate but my dog just had this same issue that got fixed in June and then the other one was yesterday. He didnt sand down the bones though, my vet put two pins and a screw to hold the patella in place. Each leg was about a month recovery but he is back to normal after! Good luck with everythjng 💙
