Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Mar 2019, 11:59 PM

On 3 Feb, little 5 months old Astrid, sister of Aden, Alicia and Alexi was found by the workers at Sembcorp Marine in a critical state. She was found lying in a pool of blood, with both her right front and hind legs crushed by some machinery! It was the worst accident case we had seen in a long time! She was immediately evacuated to United Vets but her injuries were so severe that she had to be moved to another vet which specialized in bone repair.

Initial report assessed her to be suffering from multiple fractures, crashed bones and exposed flesh with severe muscle tear. The toes on her hind leg were crushed beyond repair and will have to be amputated. Her blood test results showed that there was an increase in white blood cell count indicating the onset of infection and inflammation. Platelet count was also lower than normal.

Multiple surgeries will have to be done on both her front and hind legs if she is to have any chance of ever regaining the use of both her legs or even 1 of her legs. Even with the surgeries, her recovery will take a long time and she will be bedridden during this time. Little Astrid doesn't understand what is going on but she knows that she cannot walk now and is totally dependant on the kind-hearted people that are trying to make the pain go away.

Her surgeries and medical bill is estimated to be $15,000. We are now appealing to all kind souls to help give Astrid a chance to walk again!
