Our Campaign Story

ends 23 Aug 2018, 11:59 PM

Less than a year ago, Benji's mum ran into a factory to seek refuge, where she gave birth to 8 puppies. While his siblings were taken in by animal welfare groups, Benji was left behind due to a lack of vacancy. Sadly, the bosses at the factory do not allow dogs. Luckily for Benji, his charming demeanour captured the heart of a kind Indian worker, who secretly kept him in a secluded part of the compound. Only when night falls and business hours are over, Benji is then allowed to roam free around the factory's premises.
This arrangement was working fine until disaster struck a week ago. Playful Benji had snuck out of the container during the day and got hit by a truck. The Indian worker could not afford to send Benji to the vet with his meagre pay, and has been applying traditional topical ointments on his wounds. However, Benji shows no signs of recovery and has stopped eating, losing significant weight in less than a week. Desperate, he has turned to us for help. We quickly rushed Benji to the vet. Clinical examinations revealed a right hindlimb femoral neck fracture, with some evidence of bone resorption and remodelling which prevents reconstruction. Due to the severity of the fracture, a reconstruction is no longer possible. In order for Benji to not lose the functions of his leg, a femoral head and neck ostectomy is recommended. Despite being in pain,Benji is still a good-natured boy, even licking the vet during consultation. We want to help Benji run free again.
