Medical Spotlight: Nala

Rescue NEVER stops…not even on New Year’s Eve.  We receive 15-20 requests a day from shelters and good Samaritans with info on huskies needing help.  We can’t help them all, but when we commit, we fully commit! 

Nala came to us from Corpus Christi on New Year’s Eve, and she has a long road of recovery ahead of her. She was probably hit by a car hard enough to throw her to the side of the road, breaking her pelvis in five pieces and dislocating her right hip.  She had surgery on the 4th of January and did well.  She has some other minor issues like dermodex mange, an ear infection, and a scratch on her eye.  Despite all this, everyone who meets her calls her a sweetheart.

Due to the extent of her injuries, she requires physical therapy to be able to use her body again. Nala will spend two weeks with a specialty vet who will monitor her and help with her physical therapy and rehabilitation.  When that is over, she needs a medical foster to continue the rehab work, either in San Antonio or Dallas. 

Just a few days after surgery, the rehab is going well, and she will only get stronger as she heals.

The surgery cost $8,000, and rehab costs are estimated at another $8,000, so committing to Nala means our bank balance is extremely low.   As of the 9th of January, we’ve received over $2,700 in donations to offset the cost, but will gratefully accept more donations in her name.

With all of this and even in so much pain, Nala is the sweetest, most precious girl. She leans into the pets and craves love.

Six months later and Nala is ready for her forever! Her progression was miraculous, and she LOVE LOVE LOVES her people!
