AUGUSTA – It’s good news for a stray dog rescued by North Florida Rescue of Maine.
They were asking for help funding an expensive surgery for one of their dogs, Sophia, but enough was raised and surgery was a success.
Her jaw was fused together, meaning she couldn’t open her mouth all the way.
Vets guess it was probably broken by blunt force, like someone kicking her in the face.
The surgery to repair it was estimated to cost more than $4,500 and needed to be done in Boston.
“We take on a lot of cases where they do need medical treatment and stuff to make them healthy again,” said Caitlin Jaird, Sophia’s foster.
Since the rescue takes on a lot of animals needing medical attention, they are always in need of donations.
Sophia’s story is just one of many successes.
The address to send donations is:
84 North Main Street
North Monmouth, ME 04265
