We adopted Savannah when she was 9 weeks old, from a rescue organization in the south. At first Savannah was active. She never was able to walk far but we thought that was because she was so small. At about 12 weeks old she started limping, we took her in to be examined. Nothing showed up on the xrays, she was given a cortizone shot and anti-inflammatories. With in a week she was walking without any problem. It wasn't until she was 7 months old that the problem reoccurred. She went for xrays again. At that time she was diagnosed with a degenerative disease called legg perethes (which is where the hip joint and femur in her rear leg disinterates,. With the cost of a new puppy, her past medical treatments and me being on disability, I thought I was going to have to give Savannah back to the rescue organization we got her from. I contacted them and told them I couldn't afford the surgery. They offered to take her back but also offered other options so that we could keep Savannah. One of the options was Red Rover. I contacted them about a week and a half ago. They got back to me immediately, with in a few days they approved the grant for Savannah. Today Savannah had her surgery, it was a little more complicated than the Dr. thought, but she is doing well. If it wasn't for RedRover, Savannah would still be limping around in pain. She's still in pain and will be for a little while, but the Vet expects her to make a full recovery. When I called to see how Savannah was they told me they received the check from Red Rover today. I have to say this is the best organization I've ever dealt with . I can't say enough good things about them. Thank you Red Rover for your help..Savannah thanks you also:) Someday we hope to give back to this organization:)
