Snickers Needs Your Help: UPDATE!

Hi! I’m Snickers. I am a 4 year old Dachshund/Beagle mix, and am SUPER sweet, loving and playful. Earlier this year, I showed signs of severe back issues. My foster mom took me to the vet and I was diagnosed with IVDD (inter vertebral disc disease), and was told I may need surgery. A few days later, I was unable to walk and was rushed to the ER for emergency surgery. PAW has been told that getting me to the doctor right away saved me from being permanently paralyzed!! Thank goodness for my foster family! The surgery itself cost PAW a staggering $6k!! I am recovering very well and I have a good prognosis. I still have a limp in my hind legs but am told that in time, the limp will hardly be noticeable. The expense of my emergency surgery took QUITE a bit of PAW’s reserve that needs to be replaced so that they can continue to save homeless dogs and cats like me. Please help them by making a donation here: https://www.givinggrid.com/dauvtw/. I can’t thank you enough for your generous contribution. Every little bit helps!
