Donations Requested to Help Local Puppy Needing Emergency Surgery


Donate Locally at Weiler’s Convenience Stores

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Buster is a 12-week old Norwegian Elkhound that needs your help! He was recently surrendered to Fetch Foster and Rescue after his Femur was broken from being stepped on by his previous owner 4 weeks ago.

Buster’s x-rays

After several different surgical consultations, the conclusion is that he needs a FHO (femoral head osteotomy) to save his leg. However because of the severity of the break, it’s very possible the only option is amputation. Also since he is a puppy, his bones grow at an exponential rate and his body has already tried to heal the break. So the longer we wait for surgery, the more bone regrowth there will be, and the harder a FHO will be to obtain.

We need to raise around $3,000 to get Buster the surgery he needs to live a happy and healthy life! (Donate via PayPal here)

Fetch Foster and Rescue is a non-profit 501-c3 rescue that saves dogs from euthanasia and poor living conditions. Buster is being fostered right here in Marshfield and needs the community’s help! All donations are tax deductible!
