Lizzie's Emergency Fund

Poor Lizzie came to us in February with a badly fractured elbow joint – so painful, the young border collie couldn’t even carry her own weight properly.

The injury poses a grave risk to Lizzie’s life. At just 10 months old, Lizzie is still growing. Without surgery, some of the bones surrounding this injury could fail to grow normally, causing severe deformity.

We need your help to save Lizzie.

Today (March 13), we’re sending Lizzie to a specialist Adelaide veterinary surgeon who will operate to remove abnormal pieces of bone and possibly insert metal plates to help Lizzie move properly.

It’s estimated the total cost of this surgery plus Lizzie’s rehabilitation will be $2500.

Will you please donate today to help Lizzie recover and find the happy life she deserves?


* The goal for Lizzie’s fundraiser includes her initial surgery to fix her fractured elbow joint, plus medications, vaccinations, desexing, regular health checks and daily care – which will continue until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals in need.
