Thank you! You Helped Cain Heal!

SHARE:

We have great news to share!

Thanks to generous support from the community, we raised the $1,150 needed to help little Cain get the surgery and follow-up care he needs to say happy and healthy for years to come.

Cain's surgery with Dr. Elizabeth Laing, DVM, DACVS has been scheduled and we are grateful for all of Dr. Laing's support in performing this specialized surgery at an extremely discounted rate.

Cain is relaxing in a loving foster home now and, following surgery, he will return to his foster home to rest and recover.

Thank you for helping sweet Cain get this much needed surgery!

$1,150 needed for specialized knee surgery

When you think of a Rat Terrier the first thing that may come to mind is a bouncy, feisty, and silly pup. Cain, who was found stray in Madison, is exactly that. In order to keep this little guy happy and wiggling in the future, Cain is going to need surgery on his knees.

Cain has a genetic condition called luxating patellas, where the kneecap slides in and out of place causing joint disease. If left untreated, this condition could lead to him developing arthritis, causing constant pain and discomfort. It could eventually lead to Cain’s back legs being completely disabled.

Local veterinarian, Dr. Elizabeth Laing, DVM, DACVS has generously offered to perform this specialized surgery at an extremely discounted rate, but we need your help to raise the funds needed for surgery and follow-up care. Thank you, Dr. Laing!

Following surgery Cain will recover in a loving foster home and your generosity will support his care with physical therapy and follow-up care. With your help, we’re hoping to give little Cain the opportunity to have a long life free of pain and full of love!

Please help us raise $1,150 so we can keep this little guy happy and healthy for years to come.

You can also mail or drop off your donation at Dane County Humane Society’s main shelter (5132 Voges Road, Madison, WI 53718), with “Cain” in the subject line.

Any additional funds from Cain’s surgery and follow-up care will be used to continue the work our Animal Medical Services does every day to provide high quality medical care to thousands of companion animals each year.
