Hula is 1 in 100,000

$0 of $3,100 raised

Meet Hula, a girl who has a genuine love for life!  This sweetie came to CAWS like any other rescue dog, homeless and in need of a fresh start.  Once here we realized quickly that she was clearly dealing with some discomfort in her front shoulders.  CAWS went right to work along with our highly skilled Veterinarians to get some answers and find a solution for her.  After weeks of testing and X-rays we discovered that sweet Hula has been plagued with a very painful cartilage disease that is very rare in dogs and affects 1 in 100,000 people. Osteochondritis Dissecans, or OCD lesions, are found on her front shoulder joints. Without surgery this young girl will suffer through a very painful life. We are told that its a fairly straightforward surgery, as far as orthopedic surgeries go, removing the torn cartilage so that it isn’t rubbing and getting caught in the joint.  She will need about 2-4 weeks of rest after the surgery, and it will be about 2 months before she is back to living life to it’s fullest!

Quality of life is a priority to us here at CAWS.  We have a moral obligation to see to it that all animals in our program are given the best quality of life and Hula is no exception.
Please help us get this sweet girl the surgery she needs to live a full life and comfortable future!
UPDATE:  Hula has received treatment!  Thank you to everyone who has donated!
