At only five months old, little Gi Gi has already been through so much suffering. Can you help heal this poor baby?
When Gi Gi was dumped at our Lonsdale shelter, she had a badly broken leg, just above her elbow joint. Sadly we don’t know how this poor girl got her leg so badly broken.
She was in pain and her leg was severely swollen.
Gi Gi was examined by our vets immediately and given a fast acting pain relief to help her feel more comfortable. It was soon clear that little Gi Gi needed specialist care to fix her badly broken leg. Within days she underwent specialist surgery where plates and screws were inserted to stabilise her little leg. It’s estimated her treatment will cost $2,500.
Still with a long road of recovery ahead, Gi Gi is now in the care of one of our amazing foster carers where she will remain until she recovers.
If you’ve ever owned a puppy you will know just how hard it is to keep them calm and quiet! All little Gi Gi wants to do is play, but her movement will need to be restricted while she heals. Eventually she will need special physiotherapy to help her regain movement and strength in her leg.
Gi Gi is a gorgeous puppy with so much life. She deserves all the love and the best care we can give her, until she finds her forever family.
Will you help cover the cost of her emergency surgery and ongoing care? Please make a donation to Gi Gi’s recovery fund today.
She will be forever grateful.
Answers to your frequently asked questions
What happens to the funds if more is raised than what is needed?
If there are any funds leftover after medical treatment is provided to the animal, it will be directed back into the Animal Emergency Fund to help pay for treatment for the many other animals that need our help.
What happens to the animals if the fundraising target isn’t reached?
We are committed to providing the best possible care for all creatures great and small. As a result, we will provide each and every animal with the care and treatment they need even if we aren’t able to reach the total fundraising target.
Why can’t RSPCA South Australia pay for this treatment themselves?
RSPCA South Australia is a non-government, community based charity. We rely on the generous support of the community for 90% of our funding. Without donations from the community, through campaigns such as the Animal Emergency Fund, we simply could not be there for animals in need.
Why have some animals already had surgery?
Sometimes animals come to us with such serious, life-threatening conditions that require immediate treatment. Fundraising for these animals is still just as important as we need recover the funds we spent on the animal’s treatment so we can continue to care for others who need our help.
Will you keep my information secure?
