Story

Sweet Ruby needs your help! Ruby the 4 month old pup accidently broke her femur bone in her left back leg when she jumped from the bottom of a flight of stairs and landed awkwardly. 

Ruby is a typical pup who loves to zoom around and be silly. She loves playing with her toys, belly rubs and when she gets cuddles she makes little grumble sounds. She has never met a stranger and gives kisses to everyone she meets. Her mom said she is the sweetest pup ever and would do anything to save her, unfortunately her mom can not afford the $2,400.00 surgery and reached out to us for help.

Ruby started out life living outside on a farm when her mom rescued her. Ruby is lucky to have found a loving forever family. 

Surgery has been scheduled for this week but we still need to raise the funds to pay for it. Can you help Ruby?  Please donate today.

Ruby is doing great!

Ruby had surgery to repair her broken femur bone. Her activity has been restricted so that she doesn't damage her healing leg. She is still wearing the cone of shame but her mom said Ruby is doing great, the x-rays show that her bone is healing well. Ruby has a few more check-ups before the case on her leg can be removed.

We will have more updates soon.

If you would like to help more pets in need like Ruby, please donate to her fundraiser.

Ruby has suffered a set back

POOR Ruby the Pup has had a set back. She went for surgery and the pre-examination revealed that she had sustained injuries to both back legs! The veterinarian opted to put a cast on the leg she is not bearing any weight on and will have to wear it for 6 weeks.

This sweet girl has a long road to recovery. We will know more when she has her check up. Initially we thought the surgery would cost $2400.00, however with her other leg injured we are going to need help raising more funds.
