Archie came to us with two broken femurs and a shattered patella and the medical expenses to correct these issues where too high for his previous owner. Immediately upon arrival Archie went into surgery to have his broken femurs repaired as well as his patella. His first surgery came to $3000, and was followed by another surgery a few weeks later to remove the pins placed in his legs. Now he still requires therapy to allow him to one day walk as normal as possible.
Acadiana's TV Stations FOX 15KADN, KLFY TV10 and KATC TV3 have helped us tremendously by publishing Archie's story and asking the community for donations to help cover the medical cost for this dog, who has been so very sweet and loving during all of this.
The very same week Archie came to us, another 2 dogs arrived at the shelter, also needing unsual medical care:
Snoopy, who had one broken leg after being hit by a car and Tater Tot, who had been shot in the face.
Both dogs required expensive surgeries and both dogs are well on their way to making a full recovery.
See KLFY's Erin Nicole's Video of meeting Tater Tot:
We are now asking you to help us to continue making a difference in the lives of these dogs and the other dogs in our care, until they are completely healthy and can find new loving homes. Please consider donating
