She may have lost a leg and her tail, but she’s still as good-natured and as playful as ever. Daisy, an 18-month-old German shepherd who came into the care of the Comox Valley & District SPCA after being hit by a vehicle, had to have her right hind leg and her tail amputated due to the extent of her injuries. BC SPCA staff are hoping animal lovers will help cover the expenses of Daisy’s medical care, which can add up fast.
“Daisy has recovered nicely so far and seems to have adjusted to the loss of her leg and tail, bounding back and forth like nothing happened,” says branch manager Peter Hehl. “She’s such a sweet girl, very cuddly and playful and affectionate. We just want her to have a better chance at an active, happy life.”
The total cost of Daisy’s medical care is nearly $2,000. Currently in foster care, this lovable girl who loves to give lots of licks will likely be available for adoption in the next few weeks.
A non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies mainly on public donations to help the province’s most vulnerable animals. If you can help Daisy and other animals like her in need of care at the Comox SPCA shelter, you can donate online on the BC SPCA’s new medical emergency website or in person at 1668 Ryan Road E, Comox.
