The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter (UPAWS) in Michigan is raising funds for the treatment of a dog named Chase who was severely injured after being hit by a car. Chase, a Belgian Malinois, was taken to a vet in Appleton, Wisconsin for a surgery to fix his broken leg and is expected to make a full recovery. The shelter has so far raised $4,000 and needs a total of $8,000 to cover the cost of the surgery and aftercare.
Sands Twp, Michigan Animal Shelter Seeks New Home for Injured Dog
Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter (UPAWS), a leading animal welfare organization in Sands Twp, Michigan, is on a mission to find a new home for Chase, an injured Belgian Malinois.
Chase, known to the shelter staff as a lively yet disciplined dog, arrived at UPAWS in September, severely hurt from a broken leg due to a car accident. Despite enduring immense pain, Chase was sent to Appleton, Wisconsin for a specific surgery, offering him a high likelihood of complete recovery.
“Almost certain that once fully healed, Chase will run and walk like a normal dog,” said Laura Rochefort, an efficient UPAWS vet assistant.
While UPAWS usually engages a local U.P. vet for animal injuries, Chase’s case was unique and required specialized care.
“This is the first surgery of this kind that we’ve had to arrange,” Rochefort added. “Our local vets manage most leg injuries and fractures, but Chase’s case was complex.”
UPAWS, so far, managed to raise about $4,000 for Chase’s surgery and post-surgery care, which is about half of the estimated $8,000 required. To help UPAWS ensure Chase’s successful recovery, you can make a kind contribution here or on their official Facebook page.
