In April 2020, Lulu tore a ligament in one of her back legs. She is currently unable to walk properly due to the permanent damage the injury has caused. Due to her size and weight, the only way her leg can be fixed is by having ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) Surgery
Upon receiving a surgery quote from our local vet, I was horrified to learn that the surgery costs approximately R 40,000.00. As my country is currently under COVID-19 lockdown and my family is unable to work, this means that we are unable to pay for the surgery ourselves without assistance. However, it is also not an option to leave the injury untreated as this will put more pressure on Lulu's other leg and lead to even more injuries in the future.
It would mean the world to Lulu and me if you could donate something, no matter how big or small the amount is. Even simply sharing this post would make a huge difference. All I want is for Lulu to live a healthy and happy life while she is still with us.
