Dog's Info...

Simba was rescued form the street by a volunteer who observed him being picked on by other - presumably more street savvy dogs in a part of town known for dumped dogs. He was in rough shape - very skinny with very ground-down teeth, as if he had lived on a chain before and had attempted to chew that. After gaining some weight and getting basic vetting, he underwent his neuter surgery as well as a dental, during which numerous teeth where extracted, but only one of his bottom canine's could be extracted, as removing both of them would not leave enough bone structure and increase the risk of the lower jaw breaking during surgery or afterwards. That tooth still troubles him with near exposed nerves, so the vet recommended a Root Canal to remove the root and leave the tooth and bone intact. 

Now, Root Canals aren't cheap for people or dogs, so he is scheduled to have his pre-op consultation on June 5th - earlier if we can get him in and we will have an estimate then, but we need some help covering this cost. Please consider donating for Simba's Pain-free future!

 

 ***Please note: All dogs are fostered in private homes of volunteers, so to meet a dog please fill out an Adoption Application so we may setup a private meetup with the dog or coordinate for an Introduction at the next general Adoption Meet and Greet , as not all dogs come to all Meet and Greets***
