Jackie’s Fund began as a way to pay for beyond the normal spay/neuter/dental/fecal/etc veterinary expenses. SA Greys has paid for 5 broken leg surgeries, 3 of these dogs within the past 2 months.
While these dogs have either been adopted or are in foster homes recuperating nicely — specialized broken leg surgeries/follow up care can cost from $2,500 to $4,000 per dog.
This is a huge expense for any breed-specific adoption group.
The goal is to keep helping these broken leg dogs from the South Tucson track so they can experience forever homes just like the hounds in your house now.
So buy bling! It’s not too early to buy holiday gifts.
Handcrafted Beading Divas bracelets are made with beautiful donated beads; one size fits most (coiled memory wire used for easy on/off); each bracelet comes with a paw charm.
All bracelets cost $20. You can order them online (add S&H) and the entire $20 goes to the charity.
