A percentage of procedes from the evening will go towards a much needed wheelchair for our sweet dog, Jolene. There will be a special appearance from the imfamous beagle herself, along with complimentary drinks, handmade dog treats, and much more!
Jolene was adopted from the Austin Animal Center last year, where she came into the shelter with tremendous pain from osteoarthritis/polyarthropathy in her rear legs (either from a past trauma or underlying chronic disease). She has managed to this point with a lot of special care and various medications. However, her overcompensating with her front legs has resulted in overstressed ligaments in her front paws which have caused her additional discomfort.
The options have been either extremely costly surgeries (between $3k-$23k) or get her a full support wheelchair. It is our hope that her new medical routine combined with a wheelchair will alleviate the stress she experiences from walking, allowing her to live out her years with a higher quality of life.
The wheelchair and 3 months of medicine will cost $500. We hope to raise about half this amount. Jolene appreciates your love and support, and she can't wait to explore the world on wheels!
