Fund-A-Pitty Week One: Philly

Date: Fri, 11 Jan 2013 08:26:17 -0800

I was wondering if you could help us with something. Yesterday we observed a dog on the corner of 108th and Central, he looked like he was malnourished because he was just lying on the sidewalk. We went and purchased him food. When we approached him with the food he did not move so my partner started to hand feed him, when he attempted to eat he could not move that well. When we looked closer we noticed that he had scratches across his torso so we assumed that he got hit by a car. We carried him in our car and rushed him over to the emergency room and that is where he is at now. He has a broken front left leg and two fractured ribs. Unfortunately we cannot afford the price that they quoted us and we have paid $1,000.00 of our own money to keep him comfortable overnight, and we really wanted to save him. Please if you could help us with anything it is greatly appreciated. You could contact either myself or my partner at any time.
Thank You,
Officer Jennifer Cohen

I seriously have tears rolling down my face because "Philly" is going to get the help that he needs.  The vet that he is currently at is called: Advanced Veterinary Care Center their address is 15926 Hawthorne Blvd. in Lawndale.  Their number is (310) 542-8018 and the two people who we have speaking to is Jennifer and Maria.  The type of break that he has is called a Distal Comminuted Metathystalseal Fracture and it is on his front left leg.  I cant begin to tell you how awesome this dog is!  Even with all of the pain that we could only imagine that he was feeling he still managed to wag his tail on the way to the Emergency vet when I was talking to him.  How cool is he!
