Tomas has his lifesaving surgery

We want to say thank you to everyone who donated $1500 so South LA Shelter Intervention dog Tomas could have the first of two life saving surgeries.  It will be a long road to recovery before this sweet little dog can go back to his family, but he is doing well.  First he had to have the dead skin removed.  He will be in the animal hospital, being bandaged and medicated so the skin can heal.  His second surgery will happen once the skin is ready to close.  Right now, the wound can’t be surgical closed,  The animal hospital has donated so much of the “real cost”  $1500 would not even begin to cover the actual cost of the two surgeries and the long medical boarding care.  Tomas’ family is so grateful for the generosity of all of you who donated keeping another dog out of the shelter and in his loving home.  Here is a video that explains the process.
