Don’t you want to live with a Queen? Please open your heart and home and give Queen a foster or furever home. Our regal lady has a hind leg injury, likely a torn cruciate ligament that will probably need TPLO surgery. We’d love to get her this surgery so she feels better, but we need a foster where Queen can live for about 3 months.
Queen is a SUPER sweet girl who seems to get along with other respectful dogs (although she will need to be separated/closely supervised around other dogs during recovery so that there is no romping around). She is about 4 years old, seems to be a medium energy dog, loves people, and enjoys a soft bed and a good bully stick.
A total staff and volunteer favorite, Queen loves everyone–and the feeling is mutual! You’d never know it from her loving demeanor, but this pittie girl, who only wants to climb into your lap (she doesn’t mind that it’s a little too small for her!), is in constant pain due to the torn ligament. She is currently getting painkillers for the pain, but without surgery, her condition will worsen, likely leading to arthritis and catastrophic injury to her leg. Friends of Oakland Animal Services will raise money for the surgery and aftercare, so all Queen needs from you is a loving home.
It would be ideal for Queen to go to her foster prior to surgery so that she could acclimate to the new environment before post-op recovery. The recovery is usually around 8 weeks with the first few weeks being crate rest (and lots of meds), the following weeks being building up from walking around the house to normal walks around the neighborhood.
If you can foster – or want to adopt – this truly sweet girl, please email OASFostering@gmail.com.
Friends of Oakland Animal Services is running a campaign to raise $6000 for Queen’s surgery, and we need your help! Please, donate to help this beautiful girl get the pain-free life she deserves! Any size gift will help! Donate at: www.crowdrise.com/queenfund.
This gift will not only heal Queen’s pain, it will give her the best possible chance of finding her forever family, which, sadly might otherwise be a long shot for a pit bull in need of expensive medical care.
