Hit By a Car, Oreo Rushed to ER!

stabilized awaiting xrays
Our team of volunteers got the news that we dread today...   One of our loved dogs escaped from their foster's home and was hit by a car!

Oreo, our massive mutt/ black lab beauty, was rushed to the ER.  Oreo was in pain and panic was in the air.  Within a short period of time they were able to stabilize her and evaluate her.     After a series of tests, IV's, and xrays, the vets determined she has a fractured pelvis.   Oreo is staying over night to be monitored and observed for internal injuries.

We are all on edge and as we get more information we will keep everyone updated as we get more information!

But for right now, we are waiting more information on whether the fracture is something that will self heal or one that will require surgeries and crossing our paws that Oreo's pelvis saved her internal organs from damage!
pain meds and IV's

We have already acquired over $1200 in vet bills and expect more to head our way.  

Oreo deserves our help.

Please help Dogs XL Rescue!   Your donation will allow us to help Oreo!   Any amount, no matter the size will help!

Let's Fix Macon NOW!

Dogs XL was approached by one of their shelter partners when this sweet, beautiful boy came in to their extremely high-kill shelter.   Macon was not using his back leg and was in obvious pain!

After an evaluation by the vet, it was determined that Macon was fighting the pain and deformity of a prolonged dislocated hip.    It was VERY obvious was that he has been enduring an unfathomable about of pain that until now, no one was addressing.  
The GREAT NEWS is that we can fix Macon's pain with your help!

With an intensive surgery, the vets are reporting that an excellent recovery is possible.   Macon will need  recovery time and some pooch rehab, but will be able to play and have fun again.    This surgery will cost about $1000 (thank goodness for the vet discount!).

Macon is a gorgeous, Lab/Golden Mix as you can see and is only about 2 years old.  Way too young to not be able to run and play!   His wonderful personality catches everyones attention and he deserves to have his health, be painfree and a family to love him and provide him a forever home.  

Please help Dogs XL Rescue help Macon. 
With your financial support we can get Macon's surgery
scheduled TODAY!
