Goldie was found in very poor condition at a local animal shelter and adopted by a young military family with four children “who weren’t really looking to adopt but did so anyway just to get her out of there”. She was lovingly cared for and restored to good health but the family unexpectedly got military orders to Bahrain. Not wishing to subject her to shelter life again, they turned her over to G.R.E.A.T. Rescue of NE Florida Inc.
Upon entry into GREAT and a visit to one of our Rescue Veterinary Hospitals, she was placed in a foster home where she once again thrived. Goldie was posted on GREAT’s website and caught the eye of K9’s for Warriors. She was invited for an “interview”, passed and was accepted into the program but after running and playing at their facility, a limp was noted. Upon visiting the Orthopedic Surgeon, it was determined that Goldie, only 2 years old, has Congenital Elbow Dysplasia and for her to lead a pain free, good quality life, she will need to have Arthroscopic Surgery on both elbows. This surgery will cost $2,230-$2,512, well beyond what GREAT’s normal budget can afford.
