This would provide Adhara the surgery to correct both right and left extended patellas so that she is able to walk and run again.

We adopted Adhara on January 15th, 2007 and she has been family every since. Adhara loved to go on hikes throughout the Pacific Northwest with us, jog along the beaches, dig holes in the ground and generally have a pretty darn good doggy life.

Adhara had problems getting up and walking starting last year. At first it was slightly, then she could barely stand and we saw her struggle to walk on her front legs only. She was diagnosed with extended patellas on both her rear right and left leg.

She can stand on her right hind leg still, yet we know she is in pain and only stands for very short periods of time. She has been unable to run and barely walk for almost a year.

She has went from an active dog to one who spends most of the day in her bed with no real interest in playing since she is unable to get up. We have saved every penny we can and are not nearly close to how much we need for her operation.

It truly breaks our hearts each day to see her like this. The vet told us that this is common for dogs her size to recover fully from the operation and have full use of their legs again. She does not have the freedom to run and can barely walk and has lost all of her independence.

Even a small donation to her will get us one step closer to the amount needed to correct both her legs.

We have based the donation total on the estimate given by the surgical center. If any funds are left over they will be re-donated on this site.
