Buffy needs help

The woman stepped out her front door and there was Buffy. Injured. In pain. The woman could tell Buffy needed immediate attention so she reached out to CSRET. X-rays revealed a fractured pelvis and a fracture at the L7 vertebrae. As time passed, we could see Buffy's pain intensifying so she spent the night at the emergency clinic, receiving IV pain medication. The next day she was seen by our orthopedic doctor. Dr. J adjusted medications to ensure she was as pain free as possible, but it was still too painful for Buffy to walk and she had no interest in eating.

Fast forward a week. Rest, medication and intensive care are showing progress. Buffy can sit up, she's taking a few tentative steps and she's begun to eat small amounts. Only time will tell if she will continue to heal on her own or if surgery will be necessary. Meanwhile, she remains hospitalized and her vet bills are mounting.

Accepting an injured dog into our program is always a leap of faith. But this is why we have the word Rescue in our name. We ask ourselves, "Can we help this dog recover?" "Do we have the resources, both in terms of money and the ability to foster the dog?" Generally our answer is "We will trust our higher power and let things work themselves out." And that's what we did in the case of Buffy.

We have no idea how Buffy was injured. Hit by a car? Kicked? Something dropped on her? We will never have the answer. We do know her recovery will be expensive. It is through the generosity of our volunteers and supporters that we are able to help dogs like Buffy. And we appreciate it very much. If you'd like to participate in Buffy's recovery please send a check to:

Or you can make a donation using Paypal.

Update on Buffy - April 5 - The volunteer who will be Buffy's foster mom reports that she is improving every day. She is now getting up and walking outside on her own. She is still in pain, but not as much as before. The treatments seem to be doing a lot of good. We expect Buffy to be released to her foster home on Wednesday, April 9. When she gets to her foster home, she will have a special place set up for her where she will be isolated from the other foster dogs so she can continue to improve in peace. She still has a long way to go, but she is making progress. We'll keep this space updated as she continues to improve.
