I’m participating in Strut Your Mutt to help Florida Urgent Rescue (FUR) save more dogs like Tango, one of many major medical and cruelty cases FUR has taken in this year. Tango is a tiny Chihuahua who had the entire top of his jaw broken off, as well as an enormous prostate that prevented him from peeing and an undescended testicle. There was also an injury on his forehead. We think he had an accident in the house and someone beat him so badly it shattered his jaw. Poor little Tango has been to been to two dozen vet appointments, and he's been sedated 8 times for different procedures. He's now almost fully healed, but he has one more surgery ahead. When we got him, he wouldn't even lift his head. Now he's a sweet, happy little boy.
In less than 4 years in operation, Florida Urgent Rescue saved more than 1,200 dogs and cats, including way too many cruelty and major medical cases like Tango. FUR spends 3 times as much on veterinary expenses as we take in through adoption fees. We rely on donations and fundraisers to help us make up the difference. Strut Your Mutt is one of our biggest fundraisers every year, and we need all the help we can get. Please consider a tax deductible donation to help us save more urgent dogs like Tango.
