Nila Smith - amputation

45 posts in this topic

Diagnosis: Amputation and tissue repair

Amount of estimate: $2255

Owner Contribution: $50

We need to raise: $2205

Spayed or neutered: no, will be spayed after healing

Case worker: Pat

Nila is a young dog who slipped out of the door and was hit by a car. She is in dire need of surgery in order to amputate her leg and repair a gaping wound and treat several hot spots and pavement burns she received when hit by the car. She is a sweet and well loved dog who's family is unable to afford her surgery. We have a very short amount of time to fundraise for Nila, she is in pain and if surgery is not possible, euthanasia will be necessary.

Please consider helping this little one with a donation.

If you would like to make a donation please go to the IMOM Donation Page, and mark your gift "Gf - Nila Smith"

Thank you for helping Nila.

Guys, I know everyone is tight on funds, but this little girl needs surgery today. She is in pain and can't wait. Please help her. The vet hospital has helped with her pain meds and wrapped her leg in a soft cast kinda covering, they gave her a discount and they are working hard to try to find additional funding for Nila. The family is doing all they can but her time is running short.

Please, any amount you can contribute will help Nila get to all funds raised. Anythng - a handful of change, a few dollars, whatever you can spare will mean life saving surgery for this precious little dog.

All of us here at McKinney Animal Hospital are praying for little Nila!!! She has been such a sweet dog through all of this and is in desperate need of surgery to fix her leg. This family has recently moved to the area, struggling to find jobs, and this could not have happened at a worse time.

We ask you kindly...please donate what you can to help us help this baby!

Okay guys - Nila really needs our help. Please take a minute and go through your pockets, search under the sofa cushions, on the floor in the car, that dish in the laundry room and let's see how much change we can come up with. I know it will take a lot of change to help this little one get her surgery but we are the only hope she has.

I'm going hunting for change now & I'll have a chat with the Spoiled Royals to see if anyone has any of their treat allowance left. I'm pretty sure I can talk them into giving up their pup corn to save Nila.

I scrounged around and found $3.25 in change in the car, $2.41 in the dish in the laundry room, $1.86 in the sofa, for a total of $7.52 in change.

The Spoiled Royals agreed to donate their $20 for pup corn to Nila's fund and I found $23 I could send from my mad money stash so $50.52 is on the way for Nila.

Everyone has been so generous, and we are getting close - please if you can donate any amount to help Nila, it would be so appreciated. Can you imagine the pain she is in?

Really, no amount is too small - this little girl needs to go to surgery today - please, whatever you can spare will help her reach all funds raised. Our ability to help these precious little ones is because all of us combine our resources together to reach a goal. Please donate whatever you can.

I'm in for $30, but will have to wait until I've got access to my own computer (tonight) to make it official. I'm hoping IMOM will spot me for a few hours until I can get home and tap the kitty litter bucket for the change.

We are very close - I haven't had a fund update in a little while but I'm sure Nila is close to reaching all funds raised. I'll see what I can find out and be back shortly.

If you have not donated to Nila and have even a few dollars, please consider helping her. The Spoiled Royals love, love, love their Pup Corn and they all willingly (okay Mason argued but he did finally come around) agreed to pass on this month's order so they could help Nila.

If you are working, could you pack lunch one day next week and donate your lunch money to Nila? Do you stop for a cup of coffee at Starbucks before you go to work? Donating the cost of one cup of coffee could save Nila's life.

Please - if you can help her I know her family would be sooooooo grateful.

I know not everyone is able to donate dollars, and if you can't, we really do understand. If you can't offer financial assistance for this little dog, please hold her in prayer, send her positive thoughts, whatever you are comfortable with.

I honestly think they know when others are concerned and wishing them well and I think that is equally important to our PINs.

Regardless of whether you are able to send a donation, a prayer, a positive thought or are following her story and wishing her well, thank you for caring about this little one.

I have sent in a donation and have sent out a plea to family, friends, colleagues to try to add to the fund in any way that they can. Keeping good thoughts that Nila will be able to have her surgery as quickly as possible and will be on the road to recovery and back home with her family very, very soon.

UPATE: I just got an update to Nila's donations - She has received $1005 so far. We are getting very, very close!

I also spoke to the vet hospital a few minutes ago and Nila is on her way in to the hospital. It has always been a concern that she may have internal injuries in addition to the leg that needs amputated and the tears on her body that need repaired. The safest thing to do is have her at the hospital so surgery can be performed as soon as possible. One good thing is that although she started drinking water today, she has not eaten so hopefully we will reach all funds raised and she will be able to have surgery in a few hours.

Please, if you are able, could you donate to help Nila get her surgery? Thank you to all of the wonderful donors who have contributed to Nila's surgery, you are so appreciated!

Tell them they are good dogs and give them big hugs.

Their aunties will all have to get together and send them a care package :catwatching:

Rottendogs - I think you kids should be called the "Good Rotts!", you are terrific! I know if I tried to thank everyone, I will miss people so I won't. I do want you all to know that whether you offered financial assistance, prayers, positive thoughts of encouragement, you are all appreciated.

We had bad storms here last night and I had to shut down my computer before I could work with the financial aid committee to complete Nila's application. I worried about her all night and this morning I had pretty much resigned myself that the best we could offer was to help her to the bridge. The vet hospital was willing to help post for Nila's owner and the financial aid committee said to give her a chance and try fundraising. I wasn't sure we could do it, I hated to give her family false hope, but Nila needed a chance and this group made it happen. It's not supposed to be personal, but sometimes we can't help it, she's a great dog who needed a miracle and you made one happen for her.

Thank you all!

And now I get to do one of my favorite things and move her thread to ALL FUNDS RAISED!!!!
