This is the Love for Leah Fund. All donations are used to assist in veterinary treatment and recovery of my 5 month old baby, Leah.

On 12/30/2011 My 5 month old terrier mix Leah was hit by a car. I was sleeping at the time, my father was with her, and I woke to her heart wrenching screams. I ran outside, and immediately took her to the vet. X-rays were done which showed she had a severely fracture pelvis. This was not something my vet could help with so I was sent to a large 24 hour emergency vet 45 minutes away.
Here she was treated for shock and examined by an orthopedic specialist, who said said surgery was necessary for her to heal properly. The surgery would cost up to $6,000. More then most people can spare at once.
So I took her home, and she is on strict bed rest for 8 weeks in hopes that the fracture will heal. Even if it does the vet claims she might loose use of her hind leg, if she is even able to walk at all. There is a long painful rode ahead of her, filled with many more medications, office visits, and x-rays. And all of this comes with a large financial burden.
Being confined to a crate is like prison for Leah, who was once a loving, energetic, puppy who's favorite place was the dog park. Please show her love. All donations go towards vet bills to help leah along her recovery.

About Me: My name is Maria and I am a 24 year old nursing student who works part-time to put myself threw school. Leah is my baby, who is up to date with shots, and licensed with the county. This is a tragic accident thats comes at a high cost. Please help me HELP HER

Anything will help!
