Please help save Lola!

Postby Angela Adams » Mon Nov 17, 2008 5:05 pm

I have a situation here and I desperately need help…

I recently rescued and took in a 14-month old American Pit Bull Terrier, named Lola. Lola has had a torn CCL for 7 months and she will need TPLO surgery to get it repaired otherwise she will end up losing her leg. Lola is a very good girl, full of love and is always happy, even though she is in much pain. She tries to walk and play like other dogs, but finds it hard. Her TPLO surgery is going to cost $2,500.

Also, Lola is looking for someone to adopt her where she can live the rest of her life with her own family and lots of love. But first she needs to have surgery and I do not have all the funds her surgery will require.

Will you please find it in your heart and pocket book to help Lola get her leg fixed so she can run and play without pain?

Please share this email with others who may be able to spare a little for Lola. No amount is too small and every dollar helps…and if you can't, I understand and just ask that you say a prayer and pass this page along to anyone you know.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

Please visit her fundables page (link below) to learn more about Lola…

I will send a little something on Friday. Good luck, I did forward this to other contacts, but sadly got a nice rude reply back from one that has a ton of contacts. It's ok, I will just remember that she is solicating for a lab puppy on death row. I will keep forwarding this to other contacts.

Thank you so much!

I actually had someone call me from PA and was giving me some ideas on how to fundraise the money for Lola. She said that she felt that $2,500 for the TPLO surgery was too much and would be hard to raise, but the quote I got from the Orthopedic Specialist was $3,400-$4,000, for her surgery and it's costing me $2,500 with a vet here in town, that is certified but not considered a "specialist".

Good luck! She's a pretty gal and looks really sweet. Just laying around in her kennel while other doggies check her out.

Thank you. Somehow, someway, I know she will get her surgery :) I've been picking up extra shifts at work and pretty much cut out all Christmas presents this year (except for my PBF SS exchange, b/c I already committed to it before I got Lola) :))

Here is sweet Lola, getting some cuddle time outside of her kennel...

Thank you. Lola and I really appreciate it. We've raised $70 so far. Hoping after the Holiday weekend, more pledges will come in. :)

I got a quote for around $4000 from the local orthopedic surgeon - Dr. Howard, but later found out that my local vet, Dr. Merrill, (who actually took the TPLO class from Dr. Howard - 4 years) will do it for $2,500 including all after care and x-rays. I'm so glad I called my vet :) It saved me $1,500.
