14 Nov Emergency appeal: Can you help Essex dog walk properly again?
The RSPCA has launched a special fundraising appeal to pay for emergency surgery for a rottweiler who has been living in “excruciating pain” for most of her short life.
Two-year-old Paris arrived at the RSPCA’s Essex South, Southend & District branch in September when her owners could no longer provide her with the care she needed.
The rottweiler – who the family had bought from an Essex breeder – was in a lot of pain and discomfort, and appeared lame.
Staff set about trying to find out what was causing Paris’s pain and following a number of vet checks and x-rays discovered that she was suffering from severe cruciate ligament disease.
To make a donation towards Paris’s surgery – due to take place today (14 November) – please visit the branch’s special JustGiving page or text ‘FIXU33 £10’ to 70070 to donate £10, or any amount you can spare.
Once Paris has recovered from the surgery she will be looking for a new home.
