CRITICAL CARE DOG, RUBIN, NEEDS A FOSTER HOME IMMEDIATELY
Yesterday, GRRAND was contacted about a Golden Retriever named Rubin that had been hit by a car. Rubin suffered a right femur fracture and a left pelvic fracture. His owner was unable to afford surgery and requested that the veterinarian put Rubin down. Thankfully, the veterinarian’s office knew about GRRAND and reached out to us to help. We said yes immediately, and convinced Rubin’s owner to agree to surrender Rubin to GRRAND so he could receive the emergency medical care he desperately needed.
Rubin underwent orthopedic surgery on April 25, to install plates and screws to help his fractures heal properly. He is now being monitored and resting comfortably at Metropolitan Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Service. Rubin’s medical expenses for his surgery and post-operative care will exceed $5,000. A foster home is needed ASAP, as Rubin cannot go to a kennel. Read more about Rubin’s needs on our Critical Care page.
