Taya's New Hip

Total hip replacement – not something that comes to mind when you see a young dog. However, an unlucky combination of genetics and overbreeding left sweet Taya needing a new hip. Taya is feeling tremendous pain and discomfort, making it hard to be her friendly, outgoing self.

We’ve scheduled the highly-involved surgery for next week with a canine orthopedic specialist – and the cost will be nearly $10,000. Post-surgery, Taya will need 3 months of strict crate rest in foster care and then will begin rehab.

Would you be willing to chip in to help us cover this unanticipated bill? Taya hasn’t had an easy past, and she now has a long road ahead of her, but together, we can finally give her the life she deserves. We look forward to updating all of her surgery supporters on her progress and sharing her successes with you. Thank you for being a part of such a special community of animal lovers.
