When Annabelle came to Triangle Sheltie Rescue a couple of months ago, we immediately noticed her splayed and swollen front feet. It was difficult
for her to walk and she hopped with one foot up in the air. We were told she had arthritis
but nothing prepared us for what the treating veterinarian found when x-rays were performed: both feet had been
broken at the same time in a straight line and Annabelle never received treatment. Sadly, with an injury of this nature, she had to have been in agony for several months while her feet healed on their own.
Annabelle is now with a loving foster family and has gained a bit more mobility through soft casts on her legs. She has a consultation at the North Carolina State Vet School to see what can be done to improve
her quality of life. The cost for her treatment has already exceeded $1100 and we need your donations to fund her further treatment.
Please consider making a donation to help with Annabelle's care. Donations can be made on our website using PayPal (the link is to the left) or via check to:
