Contributions to Healing Hank will help save the life of the sweetest dog ever and the happiness of the two little girls who love him.

I have two daughters, ages 6 and 8. Six months ago my girls' father passed away. We adopted his 16 month old pup, Hank - an adorable schnauzer mix. Hank has been an integral part of my daughters' healing process and a much loved member of our family. Tragically, Hank was recently hit by a car, breaking his pelvis in three places and dislocating his leg.

The vet has estimated that his cost for orthopedic surgery will be between $1,200 and $1,400. We have transported him from Southeastern Idaho to the Sun Valley Animal Center in Northern Idaho for the surgery. The surgeon has accepted a small down payment and is performing the surgery. Hank will be needing follow-up care as well. As I was completely unprepared for this, I am asking for whatever help we can get to heal our Hank. Putting him down was simply not an option. Not only would it break our hearts, but I couldn't watch my children suffer another loss.

UPDATE 5/1/11
Hank is home and doing well. He needs a lot of TLC, but he is so happy to be back home with us. I just want to say I am so grateful for the love and support from everyone, and for the surgeon who did an amazing job. I have the before and after x-rays and I'm so impressed with his work. The team at the Sun Valley Animal Center treated Hank with affection and tenderness and treated me with respect although I was unable to make the full payment at the time. Times like these make us very aware of the good that we do have and I am counting my blessings right now. Thank you.
