Thank you from Rollie!

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! 


Help Rollie Receive the Corrective Hip Surgery She Needs!
