Penn Veterinary To The Rescue
Dexter, a lab mix pup, was found on the streets of the city with a severely broken back leg, most probably as a result of a car hit and run. We had x-rays taken and they showed a extremely serious break that would require costly and complicated surgery. Not knowing what to do with him and not having the money to obtain the surgery he needed, we reached out to Michael Moyer, head of the Shelter Medicine Program at Penn. Michael generously arranged for the vet school to do the complicated surgery pro bono. Dexter is doing amazing! As he bounds around the offices; you would never suspect he had a serious leg injury. He is completing his rehabilitation at the refuge, and will be up for adoption soon!
