Shadow's new knees

Gorgeous rescue mutt needs 2 new knees and maybe more surgery :(

Hawke's Bay

My Mum has spent her entire life savings so one of her rescue dogs (Shadow) could have 2 "knee" replacements - only to learn (we're waiting on test results) that there's a risk Shadow will now need a double amputation / be unable to walk unaided without a "wheelchair".

I know Mum will go bankrupt before admitting she cannot afford all this (but I also know she can't do it without help) and so the only other option would be to have her beautiful Shadow PTS (put to sleep / killed.)

Shadow and Mum are the best of friends ..

This is just so devastating :(

Any of YOU who know my Mum; know that she will do anything / everything she can for (all!) animals so I thought it'd be cool if we could all pitch in and help her.

Even if everyone donated just a few dollars - it would go a long way - be it toward the cost of surgeries or (if needed) the technology to assist Shadow in walking; should she lose her legs.

I don't know what else to add, but I guess if you could please share this around the internet, tell all your friends and post this on any online places you think it would help that would be amazing.

I really need YOUR help to get word out that Mum (and Shadow!) need our help, love and support.
