Loki's Leg Up!
Poor Loki! He's limping, in pain, and needs knee surgery to be able to walk comfortably again.
The operation is expensive, and the bill is hitting his pet parents at the worst time. Loki's human dad just lost his job, one of the thousands of Americans laid off as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
"Finances are tight," Loki's human mom, Heather E., tells Waggle. "We have mainly been leaning on my income alone, and it's literally penny-pinching already. To take care of three dogs, a husband, myself, and all the bills on one small hourly income, it's just not working and doesn't seem possible."
Heather and her husband rescued Loki and his two siblings. They all love to play together, and it's been devastating to see Loki struggle to keep up with his pack because he can't walk well.
"This treatment will help him be comfortable and able to run around and play again," Heather says. "Ultimately, it will help him to function as he should. Watching him limp every day, breaks our hearts. He wants to play but he just can't, it hurts him too much. He's only a little over a year old, and he has so much life to live, and he deserves for it to be pain-free."
Columbia Hospital For Animals is ready and waiting to fix up Loki's knee. The surgery he needs is called a tibial tuberosity transposition. During the operation, his surgeon will reattach his tendon to his kneecap.
In honor of Summer we are partnering with the Waggle Foundation in hopes of helping other animals like her. We started this fund to support our nonprofit partners, meat trade survivors, and followers requiring medical care for their pets in crisis. Donations to the featured Wat.ki "Pet of the Month" pay for that pet's veterinary bills, fund additional campaigns through our incentive match program, and support Waggle's mission to end economic euthanasia.
*Credit card processing fees add up to thousands of dollars. Your contribution will help offset these costs and allow us to care for more pets in need.
Waggle completes due diligence on every pet requesting support and only distributes funds directly to approved veterinarians. At Waggle, your philanthropy is safe and secure.
The Waggle Foundation has ultimate authority and discretion with regard to the distribution of its funds. All expenditures made are consistent with the exempt purposes of the Waggle Foundation.
