Edit on March 2, 2018: We have received enough funds to cover Sweetie’s amputation surgery and post-care recovery! Thank you to all who supported her!

Last week, we brought in Sweetie the dog who seems to be a victim of a hit and run incident. (She’s been hanging out near our clinic and sleeps under a car at the end of the street) We’ve been caring for her and we thought her leg would gradually heal. However, after being checked by a vet yesterday, we were told that Sweetie’s swollen leg had to be amputated. We would like to reach out for financial help with Sweetie’s surgery and post-op care which would amount to around 10,000+ php.
