Handipets Pets In Need

Please Help Ivy she was hit by a car

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on December 24, 2008


is incredibly lucky to be alive right now. Believe it or not, Ivy was
run over by a car. She crawled up on a woman’s doorstep and just wagged
her tail. She had apparently suffered all night long before she was
able to make it to the vet.

This sweetie has been through so much.

It turns out that Ivy broke BOTH rear legs (4 bones total). Ivy was
transferred to another animal hospital where she underwent surgery to
repair both legs. Everyone that meets her is absolutely amazed with how
sweet she is, despite being in so much pain.

Ivy has now been through THREE surgeries to repair her legs at the cost of $2300.00. We need your help to pay her bill.

Ivy is just one of many special medical need pups that we have put
back together. Our vet bills currently exceed $10,000.00 and as a city
shelter, we just do not have the funds to keep on going like this.

Although we are a municipal shelter, we try to save every dog that
comes through our doors no matter what their injuries or illnesses may
be. If we do not receive some major financial assistance soon, we are
not going to be able to continue to save as many as we do.

Ivy is currently living in a small cage at the vet’s office because
we have no foster homes available for her. In addition to your
financial support, Ivy also needs a loving, indoor foster home. If you
live in the memphis area and can provide one, please contact us at

It feels like are always begging – and we know that economic times
are rough, but we believe in giving every dog a chance at life…please
support us in our mission. Thank you so much for caring about our dogs.


Update 12/23/08

Thanks to Doggie Angel, Nancy, we now only have to raise $2000
instead of $2300 for Ivy’s vet bill! Nancy kindly made a private
donation of $300 directly to the shelter.
