Help Tasz Recover from a Hit and Run!
Tasz's story is heartbreaking. He's in desperate need of immediate surgery and really needs your help. The adorable Pom-Poodle (Pomeranian and Poodle mix) was the victim of a hit and run on a busy street near his home. Tasz's family immediately raced him to the animal hospital and got horrible news.
"The veterinarians diagnosed him with a fractured leg, dislocated tail and severe bruising," Selinnet V., his human mom, tells Waggle. "There is no internal bleeding, but the most economical option is to amputate his front left leg. Tasz has not had any major surgeries in his lifetime. He is a healthy dog that goes for his yearly checkups ."
Selinnet says she's struggling to pay for Tasz's surgery and care because, like so many people right now, she's financially strapped. The pandemic affected her job. "Due to COVID-19 shutdowns, my hours have been cut at work," she adds. "It would mean the world to have him with us. He was a happy dog."
All Selinnet wants is for Tasz to be home and healthy again. Dr. Donna Lee Taylor, a board certified surgeon at Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine, is treating Tasz. He's got a long road to a full recovery, but with the surgery and his loving, dedicated family helping him through, his prognosis is bright.
Tasz has an entire household who adores him. "I live with Tasz, my mom, my three siblings, my three-month-old niece, and my sister's 10-year-old Pomeranian, Munchkin," Selinnet tells us. "Tasz is their dog as much as he is mine."
