She’s young, with most of her life ahead of her, but she needs surgery to live without pain.
Sasha is a one-year-old Shepherd-cross dog, who has been diagnosed with elbow dysplasia, which is a degenerative joint disease and the remedy is surgery.
But Sasha is currently residing at the Shuswap SPCA branch, and the $4,000 tab for the specialized surgery is prompting a special effort.
“With surgery Sasha would be able to walk and run with less pain and have a better quality of life,” says a release from the SPCA .
“She is such a sweet, sweet girl and we would love to see her find a companion that will cherish her wonderful disposition.”
A group of students at Bastion Elementary is also working on a fundraiser to help with Sasha’s medical bills.
To make a donation to help Sasha, contact the Shuswap SPCA branch at 250-832-7376.
Credit card donations can be accepted.
People are also invited to come to the shelter and meet Sasha when they make a donation.
