Pit Bull Puppy Amputee Recovers at WHS

 Puppy’s Deformities Result in Amputation Surgery

Wisconsin Humane Society seeks donations for “Thumbelina”
 
MILWAUKEE – A very special puppy has stolen the hearts of staff members at the Wisconsin Humane Society and indeed, it’s fairly impossible to resist her sweet puppy face. WHS is hoping a special appeal this weekend will help them raise the funds necessary to cover her recent amputation surgery.
 
Thumbelina is an 8-week-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix puppy who arrived at the shelter because of a congenital deformity in her left front leg. It wasn't growing properly and her family was unable to care for her any longer. 
 
“Thumbelina underwent the specialized surgery like a champ,” says Dr. Rebecca Jackson at WHS, who performed the amputation.  “She is currently recovering in our Intensive Care Unit, and her prognosis looks great. We were glad to be able to help her.”
 
The cost of her surgery and medical care is expected to reach about $2,000 and WHS is asking for help with her special medical expenses. To make a contribution, visit wihumane.org or call 414-431-6121.
 
The Wisconsin Humane Society receives no government funding and relies entirely on the support of the community to annually care for 20,000 animals. The organization is recognized by Charity Navigator, the nation’s leading charity watchdog group, as a 4-star charity, its highest rating.
