From my friend:
Sebastian did really well with his surgery and he is starting to put weight on his little leg. The bone was not a clean break but a really rough edged break which made putting the plate in a little more difficult - especially since he is such a tiny tiny little guy! He will get an xray in 4 weeks to see how it's healing - and hopefully he will have a great xray.
We have several people interested in him - so hopefully he will find his forever home soon!
I CAN'T THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH FOR YOUR SUPPORT. Between this group and some of my family and animal friends we collect enough to pay for his surgery with a little extra that will help other animals at New Leash on Life!
|Sebastian says "Thank You!"|
I received this request from a friend of mine who is on the staff of New Leash On Life, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps gimpy dogs (and cats) get treatment and find loving homes.
She asked me to spread the word about a very special pup in their care that had an accident and broke his leg. After looking at the picture... who can resist.
The links in this post go straight to New Leash On Life where you can donate straight to Sebastian's surgery. If you have any questions, please contact New Leash On Life, as we are just spreading the word to help a gimpy in need:
Sweet Sebastian broke his leg when he opened his cage (or was left open by a visitor) and he jumped down onto the concrete floor, completely breaking both bones in his front left leg. He is such a wonderful dog - 2 year old Pom that was raised in a puppy mill/breeder facility. We were given the option to amputate since that is cheaper, but we opted to have a plate put in and save his leg. He should recovery fully after this surgery.
The surgery is going to cost us around $1000. I am reaching out to my friends - especially the animal lovers in my life and asking them to help me raise the money to pay for Sebastian's surgery.
You can donate online or mail a check. To donate click this link New Leash On Life site Angel Fund donation section In the comment section please write the word "Sebastian" - so we know to ear mark the money for his surgery.
Or you can mail a check to:

This little guy is very special to me and all the staff at New Leash and the surgery is expensive for us.
We take in and adopt out more than 1,000 dogs and cats each year and we are a no-kill organization. As you all know I have volunteered for this wonderful organization for 5 years and am now honored to be on staff - a dream come true for me.
Again - thank you for considering my request and feel free to share his story with others - the more we raise the more we can do. If we raise more than the $1,000 needed for his surgery it will remain in the Angel Fund which is used to treat animals with medical conditions that would otherwise have to be euthanized. Because of the Angel Fund we are able to treat heartworm positive dogs and FIV cats, dogs with injuries, skin conditions and more.
