Trudy * Always in our hearts

May 2015 RIP

We received a call from a shelter that they had a dog with a broken hip for the last 3 days and no owner had turned up to claim her. They were going to euthanize her, but called us first in case we wanted to try to save her. Of course we did!

A volunteer rushed to get her, transported her carefully over to one of our vet partners and waited for the news.  It would cost over $10,000 to fix the break on this old girl. Sadly, we don’t have an endless pot of gold and therefore, given her age and condition we had to make the right choice for her and for the other goldens we hoped to save.

We named her Trudy and one of our volunteers sat with her in the warm in a fresh, clean blanket at the vet where she crossed the rainbow bridge.
