Gizmo is the baby of an avid rescuer, foster, and volunteer!
Gizmo, or Gizzy, as her family calls her was attacked by her pack. This was completely out of character for all of the dogs involved. Her owner let them all out in the backyard to play and something was triggered that led to her being the victim. We all love our pets but we have to remember that they are always animals first, then our beloved pets. Whatever happened we will never know.
Her owner found her gasping for breath and quickly drove her to the closest animal emergency vet. She ran into the clinic with Gizzy in her arms, she had no shoes on and was frantic. This quick action however helped to spare her life.
Gizzy was immediately seen and they began the task of saving her life. After many touch and go moments, Gizzy slowly regained strength. However at this point, her vet bills were astronomical in the range of $6,000. Her family spends all of their extra money on helping other homeless animals in the community. They are a hard working family, with two little boys and simply do not have that kind of extra cash. They exhausted their CareCredit account. The rescue community quickly banned together for their fellow friend and started raising funds. Within hours thousands were raised. This gave them hope that they could continue her care.
Just days later Gizzy began recovering and getting back to her goofy self. They released her back to her family who continued care at home.
This is by far the largest amount we have seen come through Sponsor Adoptions from generous people all around the country coming together for one dog’s survival!
Her family is incredibly thankful and is paying it forward by helping other animals have the same outcome that Gizzy has had.
