Cinimini was hit by a car late last week. Her owner took her to the Vet and was told that her hip was dislocated. To put it back in place, the charge would be anywhere from $300-$400. Even worse, there's no guarantee that it will stay in place. Therefore, the Vet recommends surgically putting in a pin at a cost of $1200.
Problem. Cinimini's Dad is out of work and does not have the funds to help his beloved dog. He turned to Greenville County Animal Care Services, but they could not offer any assistance other than referring him to the animal rescue groups in the area. All but one of these groups could not provide assistance and the one that did offer a solution came at a big price.
You see, they did offer to get Cinimini the care that she needs, only if the Owner would surrender the dog to them. Wow! How many of us could do that? I would think very few. Just like this gentleman, his dog is part of the family and very much loved, not an object to be surrendered.
So, I ask you, won't you please help us to raise the necessary funds to stop Cinimini's pain and suffering, get her back on her feet, and begin to heal her Dad's broken heart?
To do so, donations can be made online using the PayPal button located at www.thecommunitypetproject.org or donations can be mailed to: Greenville Pet CONNECT, PO Box 784, Greenville, SC 29322. (Unfortunately, these two organizations are also at a loss to offer financial assistance other than to send out cries for help.)
If you prefer, drop your donations off at either The Community Pet Project, 26 Halehaven Dr., Simpsonville, SC 29681 or at Zebra Dazzle (formerly Action Video Productions), 9 E. Parkins Mill Rd., Greenville, SC 29607. It is across the street from The Olive Garden on Laurens Rd. in Greenville.
Also, please share this posting with friends and family. Your kindness and generosity will be most appreciated by Cinimini and her Dad, not to mention Greenville Pet CONNECT and The Community Pet Project. Many thanks.
