(Reno, NV) – The SPCA of Northern Nevada (SPCA) is in desperate need of donations to help Brandi, a one-year-old Beagle mix rescued last week with a serious injury that was not disclosed during her surrender. X-rays showed that her femur had been broken at least eight weeks prior to her arrival at the SPCA.
“Brandi is the calmest, kindest hearted dog around despite her injury. She needs extensive orthopedic surgery. Our focus now is giving this sweet and affectionate dog every chance possible at a long healthy life,” said SPCA Licensed Veterinary Technician and Clinic Manager Shelby Springer. “It is our hope that the surgery will be performed as soon as possible and that we can obtain a successful outcome for Brandi.”
If the procedure is successful, Brandi will recover at the SPCA and be on her way to her forever home. If the surgery is unsuccessful, she may need to undergo a second procedure to amputate her leg. She will be seen this week by a local veterinary specialist.
The SPCA is currently seeking donations toward Brandi’s care. The cost of this type of surgery is expected to exceed $5,000, putting a strain on shelter funds. We are asking for the community to donate to the SPCA’s Helping Paw Fund created to help support rescued injured animals.
If you would like to help, please make a donation to the SPCA of Northern Nevada’s Helping Paw Fund for rescued injured pets. Contributions are tax deductible and can be sent to 4950 Spectrum Blvd., Reno, NV 89512 or credit card donations may be called in at 775-324-7773 x 216.
