Grant Amount:  $200

Rescued from:  River Rouge Animal Control

Story:  Sydney had been hit by a car and suffered a broken femur.  Surgery was performed and pins and rods were put in place to hold the bone until it heals.  She will be on crate rest for 12-16 weeks.  After the initial four weeks, she was still not using the leg so a second surgery was done to made an adjustment to the length of the pin.  She now lets her toes hit when she walks so we are optimistic she will eventually trust the leg and begin using it.  Sydney is being a wonderful patient and doesn’t mind laying around all day.  She even lets the cats curl up with her.
