Those who follow us on Facebook will know the story of Lacey, a GRACE girl with a severely broken hind leg. Due to complications of the break, neither our’s or Julie and Iain’s vets were able to repair Lacey’s leg. The options we were given were: euthanasia (obviously not an option), amputation or surgery at a referral hospital. We chose surgery as desperately wanted to save Lacey’s leg.
The good news is that Lacey has had her surgery, which included attaching plates to her fibia and tibia, although she still has a long way to go. Unfortunately that surgery doesn’t come cheap. We are awaiting the final vet bill, but the estimate is £4,500-£5,000
To offset the cost of Lacey’s vet bill, our amazing volunteer Doreen has organised lots of virtual fundraising activities, including our first online auction, which finishes at 1pm on 15/06/20. See our fundraising page on Facebook for details (https://www.facebook.com/GRACE-Fundraising-Page-366323137129848/). We will continue to update you on Lacey’s progress, but want to say a huge thank you to Doreen and everyone who has taken part, made a donation or sent best wishes to Lacey.
As an independent rescue charity, run entirely by volunteers, we always welcome support and donations. If you would like to get involved, you can find details on the ‘How to Help’ section of our website. Thank you.
