Why are people so selfish and cruel? Why do you get a pet, break his leg, and then dump him at the PUBLIC shelter instead of taking him to the vet and doing the due diligence?
BWF got a call from LAAS on Dec 15 about a 9-week old Netherland Dwarf baby with a broken leg. The shelter was about to euthanize him, so BWF mobilized and stepped up to the plate! CLICK HERE FOR BUTTON'S STORY.
One of our volunteers pulled “Buttons” from East Valley late afternoon and took him to BWF hub in Silverlake for the initial evaluation and treatment. Another volunteer showed up at 10pm and transported Buttons to yet another volunteer/foster in Anaheim. She then took him to our vet in Irvine this morning for treatment.
The x-rays showed a fairly clean mid tibia/fibula with lots soft tissue swelling, so our vet decided to try to save the leg with splint/cast. If splint/cast fails, the leg will need to be amputated.
We’re happy to say that Buttons' innitial surgery and splint/cast procedure under general anesthesia went well. Since Buttons is very young, the splint will need to be changed every 2-3 weeks under general anesthesia to accommodate the bone growth.
BWF needs help with: Radiology, Splint, Surgery ($500), Radiology – Recheck Films ($300), and Medication ($200). In case of amputation there will be an additional cost of $1,6 K, but let’s hope the latter won’t be necessary. Either way, if you’re able to donate towards Buttons, please call our vet directly.
DIRECT DONATIONS TO THE VET ARE THE MOST APPRECIATED. If you can help at this time, please call Northwood Animal Hospital at (949) 559-1992 and make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation towards BWF Medical bill. Unfortunately, they only accept $100+ donations and the deadline is NOW!
For a lesser amount, you can make an ON-LINE DONATION via PAYPAL at email@example.com or at http://www.bunnyworldfoundation.org/donate/
Please remember, BWF is an ALL-VOLUNTEER, NON-PROFIT 501(c)3 animal welfare organization with 300+ volunteers/fosters working around the clock to save lives of babies and adults alike. Every week we take bunnies from the death row from LAAS and other situations. Our volunteers are funding the care of their own fosters, providing supplies, and often paying for the surgeries and medical bills. BWF has no paid staff, and with our limited resources we are doing our very best to help the little ones. But our VET BILLS are piling up and we need your help TODAY!
Finally, please CONSIDER DONATING MONTHLY even if it’s just a few dollars. http://www.bunnyworldfoundation.org/donate/
Thank you so much!
