This past Sunday, my husband and I went to the SPCA intent on adopting or fostering an adult dog. Then we saw Peanut Butter, heard her story and that was it.
Peanut Butter is a 6 month old puppy who was pulled from the Frankford River by the Philadelphia Police Department on January 10th. She was taken to the SPCA and has been there ever since, with no one claiming her. When we saw her Sunday, we bonded instantly and fell in love with her. She was limping, holding her back leg up, but the shelter wasn’t sure when and how that happened. They thought it might be a sprain and Peanut Butter was due for x-rays on the leg on Monday. So we took her home Sunday as a “foster”. We returned on Monday night, and that’s when we received the devastating news that Peanut Butter has a broken leg.
The surgery is expensive, between $3,000 - $4,000 dollars. The SPCA cannot afford to fix the leg, and if we turn Peanut Butter back in….well the shelter was evasive, but I’m guessing Peanut Butter wouldn’t last too long. We can come up with some of the money but not all, and this is the part that I need your help with. I know times are hard but we are asking for donations towards the surgery. Every little bit helps. This is really not my thing, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask. We have set up a facebook page and a fundraising page on there as well.
I really appreciate your help and please spread the word. If we are lucky and receive over and beyond our needs we are forwarding it to the Philadelphia SPCA. They are very good people there who have a hard job where they make tough decisions. They have been supportive and helpful to Peanut Butter and us.
Thank you again for all your support :)
