A month ago we asked you to help us cover the costs for the operation of Pixi, the dog suffering from bilateral dysplasia. As in other occasions you have positively responded to our appeal and you all deserve our heartfelt thanks.
In fact, thanks to your donations we have collected €850 which, added to the 1,500 Euros donated by our Swedish partner, cover the entire cost of the operations and the expenses related to the postoperative stay.
The dog already underwent the first surgery and next week she will return in the operating room for the second time. We hope that the second operation may go on without complications and Pixi may run again carefree as soon as possible.
A heartfelt thanks to you all who have supported us once again!
Save the Dogs’ team
The adventure of Sara Turetta, our President, goes back in 2002 when she moved to Romania pushed by the desire to do something for the many abandoned strays wandering the streets of Cernavoda, one of the many Romanian cities where poisoning was the only method used to control the dog population.
But it is only in 2005 that Save the Dogs Italy was founded, with the aim to support and fund the projects carried out in the province of Constanta in Romania in order to assist as many animals as possible and offer them a second chance.
Pixi in Cernavoda
Pixi is a Romanian dog that flew to Sweden to start a new life. Shortly after her arrival she was diagnosed with bilateral dysplasia of the hips. Considering the huge cost that such an intervention would have had in Sweden, together with our partner Hundhjalpen we decided to operate on Pixi in Italy.
The dog, which arrived in Milan a few days ago, will undergo surgery tomorrow. Pixi’s surgery and her hospitalization after the operation will cost around 2300 Euros.
Will you help us to cover this amount and give another chance to Pixi, which is eager to go back to Sweden?
