Update: Rollie wants to thank all of her new friends and supporters for contributing the $4000 needed for her surgery!
My name is Rollie and I am a one-year-old German Shepherd mix. I have had a very hard life thus far! I was displaced in Houston after Hurricane Harvey and lived for a while in an arena with a lot of other animals. Some very nice people with Best Friends Animal Society transferred me and a group of dogs, who all really needed a lot of medical attention, to the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. Since arriving, I have been undergoing treatments for skin infections and heartworms.
The CASPCA veterinary staff noted that I have trouble walking like other dogs. After examining my X-rays, it was determined that my left hip is very abnormal, most likely due to a traumatic injury. It is painful for me to walk and difficult for me to stand normally. I desperately need corrective hip surgery! Until I have this surgery, I am resting, taking pain medication, and receiving lots of love from the wonderful staff at the CASPCA. It is my Christmas wish to be able to walk, run, and play like other pups!
PLEASE HELP THE CASPCA RAISE THE $4,000 NEEDED FOR MY MEDICAL TREATMENTS AND HIP SURGERY.
To further assist in the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, the CASPCA has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to transfer 24 dogs from Best Friends base shelter located at the NRG Arena in the heart of Houston. The NRG Arena housed 450 displaced pets where Best Friends made every attempt possible to reunite them with their families, and is now at a point of moving some of these pets to their partners across the country.
These dogs have been among the hardest for Best Friends to find placement for due to their health issues, which will need ongoing treatment. Upon arrival, each dog will receive a thorough veterinary exam to further determine the dogs’ medical course of action.
We thank YOU for your continued support of the CASPCA. Because of you, we are able to assist in rescue efforts and continue to help save abandoned animals. We are so thankful to our community, volunteers, supporters, adopters and donors that continue to support our life-saving efforts.
To further assist in the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, the CASPCA has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to transfer 30 dogs from Best Friends base shelter located at the NRG Arena in the heart of Houston. The 30 incoming dogs have been among the hardest for Best Friends to find placement for due to their health issues, which will need ongoing treatment.
To make space for the incoming dogs arriving from Houston, the CASPCA is having a Clear the Kennels adoption event tomorrow, Saturday, October 28th through Tuesday, October 31st. All dog and puppy adoption fees are waived! We are asking adopters to consider making a monetary donation to aid in the care of the incoming animals from Houston.
