Since our last homecoming GreySave has taken in three new broken leg greyhounds. They are Bonkers, Panko and Max. Max came in yesterday and his surgery is scheduled for Monday. All of their leg injuries are about the same. The right rear leg, the same kind of break (central tarsal bone) and the good news is that the bones are not shattered so can be repaired with screws. That does not mean these broken legs are inexpensive. Their surgeries cost GreySave at a minimum $2800 to $3200 for the initial surgery.
Since Max is the 15th broken leg grey GreySave has brought in this year we are looking for a few greyhound angels to help us support the broken kids.
There are two ways you may be able to help! One is donating to the GreytLove Medical Fund. To learn more about this fund go to http://www.greysave.org/greytlove-medical-fund.html GreytLove donors will get a very nice thank you letter for your tax deductible donation, knowledge that 100% of your money will go to the greyhound you select and updates on the greyhounds progress. The other way is to Foster a broken leg dog! Fostering these special needs greys is not as difficult as it sounds. The 1st requirement is that you have a safe area to keep the greyhound confined, minimal stairs to traverse and the ability to take the greyhound to the specialty vet in Irvine on a weekly basis.
