Will you help Scath?
Fur Kids Foundation has a plea to make to all of our supporters and animal lovers in Campbell County, Wyoming. There's a fur kid in trouble in Wright who needs our support, and love.
Scath, a 4-month-old pitbull was brought to the Wright Animal Shelter on March 8. This little gal was under weight and walked with her hind end bowed under.
Trinity Thomas, the Wright Animal Shelter Animal Control Officer, took her to Dr. G with Red Hills Veterinary Hospital and they discovered that she had a fractured right femur that had been broken a month earlier and never received treatment. A calcium deposit had bridged the two pieces of bones together, allowing Scath to walk, but painfully. However, as Scath started to gain weight, the calcium bridge failed. Scath is now facing an amputaion on Thursday, March 26. Scath also has a severe under bite, and is currently on a soft food diet so she can eat and gain weight.
Trinity let Fur Kids Foundation know that she only received $250 for medical care for shelter animals in her budget this year. Not only is this amount not enough for Scath, it's not enough for any of the animals the shelter may have to help in 2015. To top it off, this is the third case of animal cruelty that has needed medical attention at the Wright Animal Shelter. Trinity has exhausted all of her funds to help Scath. She NEEDS our help. Scath needs our help.
Fur Kids Foundation is pledging $200 in medical care to help Scath. Can you give $5? If you can, please go to Red Hills Veterinary Hospital at 2007 S. Douglas Highway (or call them at 307.696.2525); please mention the Town of Wright account or Scath when donating. If you can donate more, Scath, as well as Trinity and the Fur Kids Foundation board, would be forever grateful.
Once Scath is healthy, she will be adopted to a family who is prepared to care for and love a special needs dog for the rest of her life.
If you want to inquire about adopting Scath, or would like to learn how you can help the Wright Animal Shelter raise additional funding to help with medical costs for the shelter animals, you can contact Trinity at 307-680-4701 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
