NORMAN, Okla. – A local animal rescue group is trying to raise money for surgery for a dog that was hit by a car.
Two year old Fancy, a lab/shepherd mix was found hobbling around outside of Tulsa with her seven puppies.
After volunteers rounded her up, they determined Fancy must have been hit by a car.
“Just above the femur head that fits in the hip, just below that, it’s broken there and it healed incorrectly. And so it’s able to pop in and out of joint basically. And when she stands, you can see the whole leg is bowed as a bow. And so every step, if she uses it, is painful,” said Kim Morgan with the High Plains Service Dogs and Therapeutic Riding Center.
Fancy is living on pain medication until enough money can be raised for the surgery to amputate her leg.
“Her good leg has already moved in placement wise so she’s already tripoded herself basically to survive. And so we’re just going to take the pain factor away. Once the pain is away, she’ll be a much happier dog,” said Morgan.
The group has found a vet in Tulsa who will do the surgery for $550.
They’ve already raised around $250, but they still have a ways to go.
