Help Our Dogs In Need Of Medical Care

Tiny Tim's Big Accident
Tiny Tim is a whopping 4 pounds and he is recovering at Wags and Walks after being hit by a car! He spent two days at the ER before being released to the care of a foster home. It's a miracle such a little dog survived the impact - his skull is fractured in several places but this lucky little dude is expected to make a full recovery. The fractures don't require surgery to heal, he just basically needs to relax (limited activity) for three months to allow the fragile bones to heal!
Toby's Unexpected Hip Surgery!
Sometimes when we rescue a dog from the shelterthey surprise us with something unexpected - maybe they are already housetrained, maybe they know how to "shake" paw..... but these surprises aren't always positive - like Toby, cute little black and white fluffy young dog. The day after we get him out of the shelter we notice he has a little hitch in his step- evaluation at the vet and x-rays to confirm, little Toby has a deformed/dislocated hip joint and needs surgery! Toby is recovering well from the surgery but the recovery process requires that he have strict confinement and absolutely no activity for 2 months! Toby is a trooper, he's being very agreeable with these rules. Please help us pay off Toby's surgery bill!
Amazing Paralized Pup Groot -Saved!
Wags and Walks rescued Groot from a City shelter on Christmas Eve. Little Groot was unable to walk on his back legs when he arrived at the shelter - he was paralyzed from a presumed spinal cord injury, although we will never know how or when the injury was casued.
We are attending to the many wounds and abrasions on his legs, feet and belly from dragging his little body around on the floor - but he won't be doing that anymore... a generous supporter is making Groot a snazzy wheelchair!
Pebble's Broken Back Saga
Wags and Walks rescued Pebbles from the shelter after she arrived there with injuries from being hit by a car. After consulting with several vets including an orthopedist and a neurologist who did a CT scan, we learned that Pebbles actually has a broken back - she has a shattered vertabrae in her spine!
