CBHR received a call from the Charlotte shelter Tuesday evening. A stray basset had been hit by a car and was in severe pain from a spinal injury. The shelter agreed for CBHR to pull this girl early and get her to a vet for treatment. She is undergoing surgery Friday morning. Fortunately, the doctor feels Charlotte has a good chance of making full recovery.
The surgery to save her will be about $3500 and that doesn’t cover all the other bassets in our program who still need help. We have gotten five bassets already this week, including Charlotte’s injury, and have gotten three calls in the last 12 hours about bassets in shelters. The only way we are going to get through this is with your support.
We need donations and a few more foster homes. If you have ever thought of fostering, now is the time! Please do know that if you haven’t fostered for us before you will have to go through the application process, but we will work to make it as speedy as possible. If you have fostered in the past, catch up with us and we will get your application reactivated.
UPDATE: Saturday – Charlotte underwent surgery Friday evening. She is much more comfortable and is already trying to use her back legs. Doctor said that is an excellent sign and is very optimistic that she will make a full recovery. Keep those paws crossed that this is the beginning of a wonderful new life for this girl! And please remember, your kindness and generosity made it possible!
If you can help at all, please, please do so! We don’t want to leave any bassets behind!
